We tend to think of spirits and fairies – if we think of them at all – only insofar as they affect the human world. But what kind of lives do they lead unseen by prying eyes? Answering this question is at the heart of Might and Delight's newly-released Tiny Echo.
While specific story details are left to players to discover for themselves, Tiny Echo puts players in the cycloptic shoes of Emi, who is "tasked with delivering messages" throughout a "tranquil and mysterious world teeming with shades trying to make it through another daily cycle." You're not simply hauling the mail, however, as during the course of making your rounds, you will "uncover the unique traits of each character in order to complete your delivery."
In a story told completely without words, Tiny Echo is intended to be a serene and "meditative" experience, presenting puzzles to solve at your leisure as you explore the charmingly quirky hand-painted environments, accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack composed by Mount West.
Neither snow nor rain nor delayed launch dates will prevent your from playing Tiny Echo at this point, as the game is available now through Humble or Steam for Windows, Mac and Linux.
