Portraying mental health and psychology from a critical perspective in video games isn t very common.
Thermo-Dynamic Games is an indie studio working on Echoes, a game dealing with the journey through counseling and overcoming mental issues.
According to the developer players will have to overcome challenging and alien sections of the environment in order to progress and discover the story behind it all.
The further you progress the more challenging it gets, and the player is supposed to be charmed by the game s initial moments.
It seems that the game takes visual inspiration from some of the more stylized games of recent years.
Anyone looking to try the game before its official release can look into Itch s Refinery program where the game will be found presumably soon as it moves towards the release date.
