The ECHOPLEX beta was awarded Most Innovative Game and Best Art Direction at Lisboa Games Week IndieDome 2017.

After a tough Early Access launch in April, we’ve been hard at work making ECHOPLEX better.

We’ve focussed on improving puzzle design, creating a better reward system and building out the story.

In August, we got the news that ECHOPLEX would be one of 30 international games exhibited in the IndieDome at Lisboa Games Week 2017.



Lisboa Games Week is Europe’s fastest growing games event, with 70 000+ gamers attending this year.

It was a great opportunity to test the unreleased ECHOPLEX beta. We managed to get the game in front of a lot of players, and we got invaluable feedback as a result.



On the last night of the event, ECHOPLEX won 2 of the 4 international indie awards: Most Innovative Game, and Best Art Direction.

Thanks to the organisers of IndieDome, and to every person who played the demo – ECHOPLEX is going to be a better game because of you.

I’m really looking forward to sharing this new version of the game with you - I’ll have more news on the release of ECHOPLEX full version soon…

Where will you rank? :D



We’re excited to announce Update 0.3.0, which includes 3 big changes:

1. Time Trials

We’ve had many requests for a time trial feature to be added, so here it is!



The time trial feature will unlock after you've successfully completed all 15 levels of the Early Access edition.

Your score is the total amount of time spent playing through all 15 levels (including any deaths or restarts), and your ranking will be displayed on the Global Leaderboard.

2. Better climbing controls

We’ve adjusted the climbing physics and animation to give you more control at the top of the climb (rather than getting automatically pushed forward). Transitioning from climbing to moving is now much more fluid.

(The change in player control has caused small animation problems for the Echo climbing - but they are next on the list.)

3. Achievements

There are 3 types of achievements:



Level Achievements: These are earned after each level that you complete.



Perfect Run Achievements: These are earned for a completing a series of levels without having to restart the level (due to dying, time expiring, or giving up).



Time Trial Achievements: These are earned for completing levels within the allotted time.

The achievements TO BE CONTINUED and BENDING TIME are exclusive to Early Access.

Also in this update:
  • A smexy new menu! (see below)
  • Extension of the first two levels!
  • Exciting bug fixes!



As always, let us know if you have any feedback in the Discussions or mail the game director directly: tyron@outputgames.com

Happy time trialling!

The Compass Update introduces two new features:

1. The Compass - Shows you the position of the memory fragment in each level, and the color of the room it’s located in. The compass also shows the position of your Echoes.

2. Static Floors - These floors kill you on contact, so you’ll now die if you fall into any of those deep drops between platforms (rather than just hanging out down there).

Also in this update:

  • Added an option to turn anti-aliasing on and off
  • Fixed a bug that caused you to fall through the floor when exiting Premonition
  • Updated the video player that handles cut scenes

As always, let us know if you have any issues in the Discussions.

- Fixed anti-aliasing - Edges should now be smooth

- Added an alert for missing video codec causing a black screen at game start - In order to play the FMV cut-scenes, ECHOPLEX requires an .H264 video codec that is not included on some Windows editions. If you are missing this codec, an alert will now prompt you download the Microsoft Media Feature Pack, which includes the codec. The alert provides a free download link from the Microsoft website.

If you have any issues, please mail us at support@outputgames.com

**Please note: The Premonition Update makes fundamental changes to the way ECHOPLEX works, so any existing game progress will be lost. We’re working hard to improve the gameplay experience based on your feedback - and this type of update is a reality of Early Access development. Thank you for hanging in there while we make the game better!**

The first major update to ECHOPLEX is live... And it's a game changer.

The Premonition Update (previously known as the Timeline Update) introduces two new features to ECHOPLEX Early Access: Premonition and Timelines.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A76CuQD1hyU

Premonition allows you to freeze time

When we first launched ECHOPLEX Early Access, many players requested a way to explore the puzzles and the environment without the pressure of the Echo following.

This is where Premonition comes in. When you activate Premonition, time freezes. This allows you to explore the environment, moving through any area that is already unlocked, while your Echo (or Echoes) stay frozen in place. When you exit Premonition, time unfreezes and the chase is on again. You can enter and exit Premonition by pressing TAB, and there are no limits to using it.

"Premonition" allows you to freeze time so you can explore the puzzles without the Echo following you

Timelines make the game more strategic

The second new feature introduced in the Premonition update is Timelines. When we first released ECHOPLEX Early Access, some players told us that they were completing levels by simply running blindly until they unlocked the puzzles by luck. We’ve spent a lot of time designing the puzzles, and we want to make sure you get a sense of accomplishment when you solve them.

So in this update, we’ve added a time limit to each level and a lifespan to each Echo. These time limits are customized specifically to each puzzle - so you’ll really have to think about how to complete the level using the seconds you have available. (And remember: if you want to freeze time and think for a bit, you can enter Premonition at any point!).

The Timelines show how much time you and your Echoes have in the level

You’ll see two sets of timelines on screen. On the left is your main timeline, showing you how much time you have in the level. Switches you activate are marked as colored lines. The white triangle indicates when your Echo will enter the level.

On the right hand side of the screen, you’ll see the Echo timeline. It shows how long your Echo’s lifespan is, and also records which switches it has crossed.

When your Echo’s timeline runs out, it disappears from the level. When your timeline runs out, the level resets, and you’ll find yourself back in the test chamber.

Premonition lets you to see the game from new angles

Try it out for yourself

Please give the new update a try and let us know what you think. We’ve also redesigned some of the levels for better flow and puzzle work - so playing the game will be quite a different experience now.

Your feedback so far has helped us take ECHOPLEX in directions we didn’t expect and we’re really loving it! So thanks again, and we’re looking forward to your feedback on the Premonition update…
