Ultra Ultra today announced that its debut game, ECHO, a nightmare-fuelled sci-fi adventure, is available now for PC. In order to celebrate this announcement, Ultra Ultra has also released the game’s debut trailer that can be viewed below.
In ECHO, players take the role of a girl named En. After a century in stasis, En arrives at her destination: A Palace out of legend, a marvel of the old civilization eons gone, still awaiting its first human occupants. Out here, using forgotten technologies, she hopes to bring back a life that shouldn’t have been lost. But nothing could prepare her for what she’ll face in the ancient halls below.
The game starts as a character driven journey of discovery, but as it unfolds it evolves into something altogether more punishing. The Palace studies everything players do, everything they are, to use it against them.
The Palace “reboots” every so often, resulting in a blackout. This blackout-cycle is the rhythm at which the Echoes get updated with your latest behavior, learning and unlearning from your actions. During the blackout the palace is blind, giving you the freedom to act without consequence. This is the time to run and gun and do all the things you don’t want the Echoes to learn.
The experience is one of being up against your own choices from the last blackout-cycle, giving you a way of shaping the game from cycle to cycle. So no matter if you prefer to go stealth or action one thing is certain, you need to keep your wits about you if you want to survive the Palace.
