There Came an Echo — strategic chatter

When yelling into screen has sense.


There Came an Echo, a tactic real-time game with full voice control support, has got a new trailer, where you can hear one of the main hallmarks of the game. Yes, you can hear it, because the scoring of the game is made by famous (and still popular) American actors.

The premier violin plays Wil Wheaton, best known for the TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “The Big Bang Theory”. He is accompanied by Ashly Burch, Laura Bailey, Yuri “Prince of Persia” Lowenthal and others.


There Came an Echo is a strategy in which the player gets the opportunity to send his charges into battle with his voice. In addition to a sufficiently large set of basic voice commands (several hundred), the game will give an opportunity to create your own commands. Moreover, There Came an Echo will simulate a kind of dialogue between the player and his subordinates: upon overrunning a new position the unit can report what it sees or request further instructions. Besides voice control the game also maintains traditional control methods via keyboard and mouse or gamepad.

There Came an Echo is set in the nearest future, when using the perfect cryptoalgorithm some shocking secret has been hidden from the public. The protagonist of the game, who created this very algorithm, is to save his life from CIA claws which decided to cover things up and open this hidden information to the public.

There Came an Echo, which has successfully raised funds for development last March on Kickstarter, has recently passed beta testing and is being prepared for the official release in February.
