There Came an Echo Trailer: Chatty Cathy Strategy
Iridium Studios' There Came an Echo just released, and the developer has posted a new launch trailer to commemorate the strategy game's availability.
It used to be purely a thing of the future to be able to command computers using just your voice, but now there are many things taking advantage of the power of our voice. Iridium Studios is definitely hopping on the band wagon with its new real-time strategy title, There Came an Echo. I'm not completely sure if the game looks super awesome because I don't have to actually even move to play it, or if it's the feel-inducing music that backs up the trailer, but either way, it's undeniable that this title will be, if executed properly, a game changer.
However, There Came an Echo won't just be interactive by using your voice to command your characters -- there will also be little additions to the game that make you feel like you really are commanding troops. If you're telling your troops to do something stupid (such as shoot at someone they're already shooting at) they're not going to be silent about it. They will let you know that they are already shooting that person, and they won't exactly do it nicely.
In the trailer above, you can check out the real-time commands of someone playing the game, as well as the way the characters react. You can also check out some of the character's backstories and the general way that the game is set up.
Or, if you want to try it out for yourself, you can check There Came an Echo out now on Steam. Console versions are expected to arrive at a later, unspecified date.
