Description

Enter the moonlit world of Echo Lake: a single-player puzzle-adventure game available on Steam [PC] Early Access from 27th January 2017. Take on the role of 9-year-old Kit as you explore the lake in your rowing boat. Utilise a unique telescope as you discover constellations that merge space with nature. Catch fish and command sea-life to expand your abilities and uncover secrets scattered throughout the lake.

History

Echo Lake (formerly ‘Observatorium’) has been in part-time development for around 2.5 years. The game began as code/design project by Clive Lawrence: whose previous accolades include inception and design work on the award-nominated Solar Flux (Mobile/PC). Inspired by the literature of Ray Bradbury, the music of Marko Nyberg and games such as Portal, Wind Waker and FRACT OSC, Clive set out to create a thoughtful puzzle-adventure experience where the themes of space and nature would exist harmoniously. Since then, Jonathan McEnroe has jumped on board to realise the world of Echo Lake with his striking 2D artwork and Peter Satera has joined to contribute his mesmerising animation and audio skills. Collectively, we formed a company called Capsule Three Ltd. with the aim of crafting a delicate, deep and thought-provoking game for our debut release.

We still have a long road ahead of us but have recently hit an important development milestone; now is a great time to get others on-board for feedback as we refine existing mechanics and add new content. We're bringing our 'Astronomer Alpha' - an ambient puzzle-exploration mode that requires mastery of stars and sea-life - to Steam Early Access on 27th January 2017 with the aim of expanding our game over a series of months thereafter. The future is bright and we have big plans for Echo Lake beyond the gameplay included in 'Astronomer' - including new modes and features - so we appreciate all feedback and support we can gather at this early stage.
