Echo Generation is in my eyes and without a doubt possible (even if other titles deserve it), the best indie game of this year 2021. Developed by Cococucumber, it is everything that action / adventure game lovers dream of. / RPG cute as everything. You hear ?
I must admit it to you humbly, it is the case to say it: Echo Generation totally turned me upside down! Released via Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, both on PC, Xbox Series and Xbox One, this is one of the coolest indie titles of the year. And arguably one of the most underrated, in my ultra personal opinion.
Strange things are happening …
Impossible when embarking on this adventure, where the choice is left to us from the start, to choose a companion among several (boy or girl), not to fall for the style employed. Pixel art, if we may say so, all in 3D, that’s not trivial! The effect is quite simply stunning, and truly brings novelty, which is sometimes sorely lacking in the modern day.
Released on October 21, Echo Generation seems to please the greatest number, if we are to believe the video “Accolade Trailer” broadcast by its father, the Canadian studio Cococucumber. A tribute that I gladly reiterate, having been totally filled from the beginning to the end, totally mythical or even mythological, with this great adventure.
Do you have the ref ‘?
You will easily understand, there are also a lot of references that you will discover during your pixelated adventures. Brawling raccoons (and therefore?), Robots all in all “already doomed”, or even streumons straight out of the universe of Stranger Things, the famous Netflix series, which Thomas has seen five times.
And as if that were hardly enough, the music of the game, absolutely superb too, is already available. The video in addition here, will indeed allow you to escape to the melodious and sometimes electronic sounds of the soundtrack of Echo Generation.
For budding music lovers know that you will find this enchanting music, released since November 12th.
