A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Echo is a 2D documentary-style exploration game that follows the journey of a bat, Echo, who is searching to reunite with her colony after a cave collapse displaces them. Echo uses her echolocation ability to navigate through the forest, avoid a number of obstacles and dangers, and guide the other lost bats to their new home.

Maryland Institute College of Art students Don Boose, Ashley Guchhait, Miki Straus, and Glo Wan created Echo for Sam Sheffield's 2D Level and Narrative Design class.

Special thanks to Jerron Shropshire for doing the voiceover! Sounds were collected and edited from SoundBible.com (mikekoenig) and freesound.org (thanvannispen, Halleck, duckduckpony, Taberius).
