Fossil Echo; a story driven, short yet challenging platformer game by Awaceb, is now on our agenda. It is mostly because this game offers mesmerizing artwork with beautiful music a platformer could ever ask for.
Imagine that Ico and Hayoa Miyazaki had a hand drawn 2D baby. Well, if I didn’t get your attention now, I don’t know what will. Oh wait, what if I told you that Fossil Echo is full of adventure and mystery with stealth elements?
You are a young boy, you are on a small island in the middle of the ocean and there is a tower that you must climb. You climb and climb, without saying a word; but your dreams will speak to us. As you climb, the story underneath will reveal and when you close your eyes and go to sleep, your dreams will tell the story instead of you. Fossil Echo offers over 15 minutes of fully animated cutscenes.
How he got there, and, more importantly, Why? are questions that will be answered via playable flashbacks during his ascent. And for those willing to meet the challenge, eight temples offer some insight on the game’s lore and back-story.
Awarded by many, Fossil Echo is a new experience for who wishes to try challenging platformers. For more detailed information, you can visit Fossil Echo Steam page.
