‘Echoes’ Will Be a Stylish Episodic Game about Mental Health

We don’t know much about Echoes yet, aside from this trailer. According to its developer, Steven Chapman of Thermo-Dynamic Games, it will be an episodic game that explores psychology and mental health.

It ties exploration gameplay with puzzles and features two distinctive visual styles based on the core narrative themes. The narrative follows a patient’s journey through counseling and overcoming their mental issues. The story, unique blend of visuals and challenging gameplay will come together to create an unforgettable experience.

 

It seems as though the trailer’s environments are the player character’s dream states, which will be explored and taken apart through what the developer is calling its “mind-break” mechanic. We’ll need to wait until later this year – when the first episode is expected to arrive – to see exactly what that means
