Echoes is an action-strategy game. It's set in an extensive universe on a torn Earth almost three-hundred years in the future. It joins the famous real-time strategy genre with many elements from the third person shooter genre, in a side-scrolling environment.

Please note this game is loaded with action, and may load on your cpu. If you have any slow frame rates try to lower the graphic settings. Also note Echoes is a heavy story-teller, with scenes and dialogues. If you're in only for the action, there's always a skip button in the corner.

I won the ganme

its the best ganm elfer.

the controls

u make the controls on the keyboard too dam hard. Your game sucs

Great all-around package.

The amount of work you guys put into this really shows. Let's break it down!

Graphics: Beautifully drawn sprites all around, making the game seem almost surreal.
Gameplay: A great idea with a combination between strategy and action. I do have 1 complaint though. When you do the hop by double tapping a direction button, or by pressing W while moving, your firing stops. While not a problem towards the end, I did have a bit of a problem with it to begin with in larger firefights.
Story: This game did a great job establishing it's backstory for new players, and on keeping the story going. I felt like the story, although short, was what really made this game come together.
Sound/Music: The sounds fit perfectly with the game, with none being overly annoying or repetitive. The voices fit each character perfectly, although I have to say that some of the acting felt forced. The music fit very well with the game and was what really sealed the deal with me. It was dark, slow, but still great to have a firefight to.
Overall, I'm highly impressed! I'd like to see more of this series, any ideas as to when Act 2 will be hitting?
5/5 10/10 and a very high recommendation!
