Editors’ Choice

A chilling reminder that the threats you don’t see can be the most terrifying, Dark Echo drops you into a pitch-black room with only sounds and vague outlines to guide you. Before long, you’ll be clinging to every little noise and flash of light, hoping to avoid buzzing flies and angry growls. And when you finally reach the unlatching door that leads to the next area, you’ll feel an exhilarating jolt of pure glee.

Awesome yet a bit scary

As a developer myself my first thought when I saw this game featured was, “Those echo effects are soooo cool!” And after buying it I gotta say this is very well made. I never been a fan of scary movies nor especially games, but I love puzzles (Monument Valley is a fav) and avoiding red stuff you can’t see didn’t seem that scary. I have bought it now, love the price btw, and surprised myself that that aspect is actually a bit scary. I’m good and think this game is awesome! But if you really don’t like horror (I wasn’t exactly frightened just nervous- I’m very competitive) even if it doesn’t seem all that creepy— beware.

Ok, this is a horror game, but it’s disappointingly not that scary, but who cares? This game is absolutely amazing. It uses a great mechanic, has great sound, and is very, VERY hard at times. Really, the only thing that’s scary is the enemies. They sometimes come out of nowhere and and that causes you to panic and accidentally run right into them. Also, the death sound effect. Holy crap, the death sound effect. It starts with a scream, then you hear bones cracking, blood spattering, and chunks of flesh falling to the ground. It’s delightful. Sarcasm intended.
