Chained Echoes is a classic SNES-styled RPG, bringing back all the fun things from that era while reinventing and developing them further. Follow a group of heroes on their journey through the war-ridden land of Valandis. Fight against hordes of enemies in a turn based battle system. There are no random encounters and no separate battle arena. This allows for the player to use the environment to his advantage, either in the midst of the fight or in preparation for it. In case fighting your enemies with sword or magic is not enough, you can switch to your Mech and bring out the big guns. A complex battle and skill system makes sure that everything stays balanced and fun. An equipment system allows for a lot of customization of your characters, your Mechs and even your own airship! And having an airship means that there will be a world map waiting for the players to be explored. Chained Echoes is a colorful adventure full of surprises, fun characters, and an engaging story.

Chained Echoes raised 35.000€ (58% of funding goal) and also announced the Nintendo Switch stretch goal! The campaign has 20 days left.


Chained Echoes is based in the fantasy world of Valandis, where you play as a group of heroes that venture to bring an end to an everlasting war between three kingdoms and destroy the strongest weapon the Gods have ever created, The Grand Grimoire.

Inspired by the Japanese RPGs for SNES and PSX, Chained Echoes combines the charming graphics and deep storylines of these 90’s classics with modern game design principles, all the while adding unique features into the mix. You can board your mechs and journey through a vast overworld, discovering new locations in isolated areas unreachable by foot. You can also equip your mechs with a wide arsenal of mechanical parts and weapons, allowing one of your characters to be the pilot in fights against bigger foes up in the sky. Similar to your mech, you can equip your very own airship with powerful upgrades, assign your characters to positions like the bridge, machine room and more, all to combat against your enemy’s armies in massive battles across the skies.

Key features:

  • 20 - 25 hours of play time
  • Fast paced turn-based battle
  • No random encounters; enemies can be seen running around
  • Tons of items to be looted, stolen or crafted
  • Complex skill and equipment system
  • Customize your own airship

  • 16-bit SNES style graphics
  • Music inspired by PSX RPGs
