Reviews

“The video games are art argument has been driven into the ground, jumped the shark, and is now a dead horse. The blend of aural mastery, colorful art-design and general oddity, however, make There Came an Echo a nearly unrivaled sensory experience.”
8/10 – Hardcore Gamer

“From a technical standpoint, what Iridium Studios has done with There Came An Echo is an ambitious accomplishment that’s nothing short of magnificent.”

About This Game

***Note: There Came an Echo, though designed primarily for voice commands, is fully playable without them.***

Ender Wiggin. Admiral Ackbar. That dude who commands the G.I. Joes. These totally rad commanders knew that battles are won not by a single footsoldier, but by issuing precise commands that put their units in position to achieve victory.

In There Came an Echo, follow in those commanders' footsteps by giving orders to Corrin Webb (Wil Wheaton) and his squadmates in a unique real-time strategy experience. Using an advanced voice recognition system, direct your units through a variety of mission types against foes armed with futuristic energy weaponry and personal force fields. Make your move with standard commands ("All units, advance to Bravo 3!") or utilize custom variants to express your unique personality ("Everyone, do the worm over to Buttface 3!"). Keep it classy, folks.

Follow a complex, character-driven sci-fi plot: Corrin, an ordinary cryptographer, is thrown into a deadly game of secret agendas when a group of mercenaries tracks him down in Santa Monica, California. Guided by the mysterious Val (Ashly Burch), Corrin must escape from a foe with seemingly limitless resources and discover what secrets his own unbreakable algorithm, Radial Lock, is safeguarding...information that, if released, will rattle the very foundations of reality itself. Also starring Laura Bailey, Yuri Lowenthal, Cassandra Morris, Rachel Robinson, and Cindy Robinson.

Key Features:
  • Experience an epic single-player campaign that focuses on plot and character development over the course of the game
