This is a beautifully done game. Visually and a powerful story . What's most amazing is the story is just conveyed visually, didn't need any dialogue or text. Very well done!If you enjoyed this video then be sure to SUBSCRIBE here for daily videos!

Can't believe I missed this when it released! Really glad I came back and took a look at it because this is some of the best and most concise mechanical and environmental storytelling I've seen in a game. The whole story was conveyed without a single line of written or spoken word and still managed to be clear and impactful. While very short and lacking a little bit in gameplay, it's still something that needs be played.
We are also glad that you looked back up old games again! We did really but everything we had into telling a stsory through both the mechanic and environtment, we're glad you enjoyed it!
Very well done that left me aching for more. This project is gold and has potential if you continue to persue it further. Controls need refinement but overall it didn't hurt the expereince too much.
Thank you for your kind word. As of now, we're eagerly waiting for Swedish game awards and what it might hold for us!
Glad you liked it. I see you had trouble with the controls, the newer version has been updated with control-scheme including keyboard!
Thank you for a great little keep up the great work
Wonderful job! You guys did a great job paying homage to the overall feel of the games that inspired this and it was very well done from the mechanics to the models and other assets for something made in a month. The controls are a bit iffy, but can be overlooked. Be careful not to take so much inspiration from prominent games beyond the tone and setting that your work comes across as a copy instead of a project with your own voice. I think adding the mirror mechanic here went a long way towards setting Echo apart from being a Little Nightmares clone. Thumbs up and good luck with your next game!
Glad you liked the game, we are very happy with the mechanic and how it worked together with the environment and story. The ending is open, and you may interpret it as you want!
woah, i must say, great game, with great artistic skills
good job everyone, loved the game.
simple, clear and beautiful, and oh my god that ending.
truly great work, looking forward, for a lot more than just this, please keep making more better games.
i love, how it was not needed to actually use words to tell the story, brilliant work guys.
I am glad you enjoyed it! Hopefully we'll continue to make great games. Glad you appreciate the story and the way it is told.
i dont know how you made this but this was incredible!! 10/10 :D wish there was so much more to this!! :) really awesome job on making this! :D
Glad you liked our mechanic! Also neat that you mention Little Nightmares which was an inspiration to us :) It is unfortunatly not planned to be developed further however we are keeping our fingers cross for what the Swedish game awards might hold for us!
Such a good game! Amazing atmosphere and story!
Hello! It's always fun to see people interpreting the story, and that it varies between the gameplay videos, which was kind of the point, and part of the design of the game. Glad you enjoyed it, i really liked your video!
Echo is certainly a well crafted game and seems a nice homage to Little Nightmares by design. For something made in a month's time, the graphics and models were all pretty solid, with the textures and lighting working really well to keep a semi-realistic dreamworld in the player's eye. The mechanic of using a shadow in the water to help solve problems also worked pretty well, feeling rewarding once you figure things out. I'm normally not the best at puzzle games, but found this one enjoyable.Good job on this, devs.
Thank you, we did work together to make sure that both the gameplay and artstyle fit the narrative. Nice play through man! Have a great day.
really like the game the shadow idea was very cool and made me have to think more on how to get to the next room cant wait to see more of this game or more of you work!!
Hello! I really enjoyed the game and must say the way you architectured the story to be straight forward and yet very mistical untill the very end seems amazing! It is very difficult to keep a person attched to a game untill the very end, but, you did it so well I have nothing but praise for you! I honestly can't wait how you perfect this game, and wish you only the best in the future!
Thank you for your kind words, i am glad it held you until the end and that you enjoyed it!
I love this game, I really hope you develop it further, I feel as though it could be really cool
definitely would love to see more of this game, the camera is cool, the character movement is kinda good, just needs a bit more to be perfect , like edge grabbing while jumping and crouch maybe , it really reminds me of little nightmares alot because of the atmosphere, the camera and the character controller, also limbo/Inside puzzles , which is great to get compared to such titles , keep up the good work :)
Thank you so much for your feedback! It's pleasant to me as a developer to see that the games which you mention in your post are the same game which we looked at and said we wanted to try to tell a story in the same way, while also brining something new to the field! Thank you so much once again.
Cool game I really enjoyed it especially the shadow and its different from Little nightmare and Inside.
Got to play it too, and I liked it. I wanted more puzzles of course but I'm hopeful for an Echo 2. ;)
Hey everyone, I have to say that I had a play and managed to complete it in 7 minutes and I enjoyed it. I used the keyboard to navigate around and did find it just a tad little hard to control but it wasn't a real problem.
Graphically, it is so well polished it's great and I thought it was great how you could see the water underneath the floorboards. THe overall T&l was great.
Puzzle wise, I liked the idea of having a shadow character which you can control to help you with the various puzzles.
Overall, I was really impressed. Well done everyone.Regards
