New Blip: Fossil Echo

Fossil Echo, from Phil Crifo, is an adventure platformer inspired by the Oddworld series, as well as Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The game stars a young boy who must climb a giant tower jutting up from the sea. The character’s backstory is told through wordless interactive flashbacks where the player must tackle platforming environments. The lead character is physically weak, so he must generally avoid contact with enemies and use stealth in order to elude them. The game is presented in an illustrative art style with pre-rendered backgrounds set in a fantasy world.

Fossil Echo is headed to PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam in 2015. UPDATE: The developer has reached out to inform us that the game will be releasing in early 2016.
