Brief

Build and drive robots to solve puzzles as you transform between human and machine. Set in a cyberpunk world, MechoEcho is a block construction game, a 3D puzzle action game, and an accurate physics simulator all in one. In 30 challenging levels plus Sandbox, you create original machines, explore, and run for your life!

Description

MechoEcho is a 3D puzzle game, physics simulator, and block construction game set in an ethereal world where all that stands between you and peril is your own ingenuity.

Use blocks, engines, and an array of tools to invent and build wildly creative machines. Pilot them to solve the 3D puzzles in each of the 30 levels and Sandbox.

You’ll transform from human to machine and back as you explore the shadowy cyberdeco setting with sheer drops, a pulsing soundtrack, and strange creatures out to destroy you.

The customized physics engine is highly accurate which makes driving fun and easy. Go from beginner to master as the carefully crafted difficulty curve takes you to the crazy hard final levels. The addictive, challenging puzzles will inspire you to dream up ever more creative machines.

The focus of the game is solving puzzles to explore the world and uncover the mystery of the player’s existence. At every step, a new challenge awaits and the player must invent new machines to continue the journey.

Story

In this cyberpunk fable, you awaken in a mysterious computer simulation after having witnessed the end of the world. Neither human nor machine, you carry the scars of the last days of humanity, and the mistakes you struggle to unmake. The past and present stories of Echo and her creation unfold in pieces and memories that weave together a tale of lost hope, escape, and possibly redemption. In the end, the fate of humanity is up to you.

Developer

MechoEcho is the first production by Resilient Games, an independent studio located in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

About Resilient Games Ltd.

We arrived on this planet from Resiliga (what you colloquially call RG-1749) back in 1979, along with the birds. Everything was fine for a while and then the Derprons started planting stories about us in paparazzi magazines. We swear we never created breading, the dancing frog, or the Rickroll. Anyway, to set things straight we decided to create descriptive presentations about our world – historical documents, if you will. MechoEcho is the first. There are only a few of us and it takes a surprising amount of time to create this on your world, but we’ll explain the stuff about unlimited free energy, perpetual bliss, and world peace later on…you know, as long as MechoEcho is wildly successful. We’re just saying.

Okay actually, Resilient Games is a one-person independent games studio located in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The person in the one-person studio is Sandro Furini who worked on titles in AAA franchises such as Killzone, SOCOM, Resident Evil, and most recently Sleeping Dogs, as a specialist in artificial intelligence and physics programming. He branched out on his own to develop MechoEcho, creating the game he wanted to play. At odd (and all) hours, surrounded by Ninja Turtles, he has done the programming, design, animation and most of the artwork. Caryn did a lot of the story and legal stuff, and puppy Pilot provided intense distraction.
