Echoes of the End
Echoes combines a new form of real-time narrative storytelling in action-adventure games, with a unique and fresh new setting, premise, and companion mechanics.
Echoes will offer compelling gameplay filled with engaging content, great visuals, and a gripping story. It mainly focuses on the epic journey of Ryn and her unlikely companion, Abram (portrayed by Aldís Amah Hamilton and Karl Ágúst Úlfsson), and the development of their friendship.
Players will take on a variety of both monstrous and humanoid foes in fast-paced, ability-centric combat. Outside of battles, the game will have a strong focus on narrative choice and progression, as well as exploration and puzzle-solving.
Echoes use state-of-the-art motion capture, photogrammetry, and other modern innovations to deliver a breathtaking experience. The game will be shipped on the generation-defining Unreal Engine 5, making full use of its new capabilities including Lumen and Nanite.
