Thermo-Dynamic Games LTD have announced their new game Echoes is officially on Steam Greenlight with an awesome new trailer to boot.
The new trailer shows off the games more realistic visual style and the focus on mental health as the player dives into dreams facing obstacles and puzzles.
Echoes is an episodic game based around a patient’s journey through counselling and facing their own mental issues. The main themes that this game tackles, through psychology and mental health, is also accompanied by an exploratory and puzzle solving game play through two distinctive visual styles which can be seen in the trailer.
Episode 1: Diagnosis explores the beginning of the character and through the unique game play, players will have to overcome these difficult situations in order to reveal the story behind it. Known as “Mind Break”, this game mechanic sounds incredibly interesting and as you face your characters dreams, and potential nightmares, the narrative will fall into place.
Thermo-Dynamic Games are based in Newcastle, UK and run by Stephen Chapman. This will be his first release and hopes that it will come out this year.
This game already sounds like it will be thought-provoking and challenging, it will be interesting to see how this mental health game may help others to understand the turmoil of what others might be going through as well as being an exciting new game development.
