Set in a fantastical world, Fossil Echo tells a wordless tale of adventure and mystery.
Fossil Echo is a short and challenging story driven platformer with hand drawn 2D graphics, developed by Phil Crifo (Story, Art & Design), Thierry Boura (Programming), John Robert Matz (Music), and A Shell In The Pit (Sound Design). The story is short, but you will become immediately interested in finding out what happened right after the first cutscene. Follow a boy’s wordless journey as he climbs an ancient tower stretching above the clouds. Why, and how did he get there? What will he find at the top? Fossil Echo mixes old-school, “die & retry” platforming gameplay with some stealth elements. Adopting the style of animated film, it presents an array diverse environments, from lush forest to snow covered tower.

Fossil Echo Reviews:
Fossil Echo features a detailed art style, with pre-rendered/hand painted backgrounds and hand animated 2D characters. This game will challenge your timing, balance, and resolve. The game is easy enough to figure out the controls and hard enough to retain your interest. If you like platformers which concentrate on simplicity and "nail" that focus, then Fossil Echo is something which you should check out.
