ECHOPLEX beta scoops 2 awards in Lisbon

The ECHOPLEX beta was awarded Most Innovative Game and Best Art Direction at Lisboa Games Week IndieDome 2017.

After a tough Early Access launch in April, we’ve been hard at work making ECHOPLEX better.

We’ve focussed on improving puzzle design, creating a better reward system and building out the world of the story.

In August, we got the news that ECHOPLEX would be one of 30 international games exhibited in the IndieDome at Lisboa Games Week 2017.

It was an opportunity to battle test the beta version of the game.

Lisboa Games Week is Europe’s fastest growing games event, with 70 000+ gamers attending this year.  Despite a bit of a language barrier, we managed to get the game in front of a lot of players.

It’s scary watching your baby go out into the wild on its own.

Every day we tested the demo with players in the IndieDome, and every night we’d go back to the hotel and make changes, based on what we saw.

It was an intense but really rewarding experience, and the game took leaps forward because of the feedback we received.

On the last night of the event, ECHOPLEX won 2 of the 4 international indie awards:  Most Innovative Game, and Best Art Direction.

Thanks to the organisers of IndieDome, and to every person who played the demo and gave us feedback – ECHOPLEX is going to be a better game because of you.

I’ll be sharing more news on the release of ECHOPLEX full version soon…
