Echoes of Aeons is an epic 2.5d ARPG in the likes of Legend of mana and Final Fantasy.
Echoes of Aeons is an Action RPG, focused on beautiful art, a stunningly composed soundtrack, an awesome storyline, and of course fun and engaging combat. Think along the lines of The Legend of Mana, and Final Fantasy, but with a more modern twist. It will be released on iOS, Android, Mac, and PC.
The game will follow Eldric, a young man that was orphaned in his youth, who unknown to himself, is one of the Descended; and Rin the daughter Heir to the throne of Lusec, a peaceful nation on the brink of war due to lies and treachery. As they get thrown into the chaos that is brewing in Terra, their fates eventually cross, and they must overcome all obstacles as they learn who is really pulling the strings in their world – that the fate of not only Terra, but of an unknown world lost to the ages, is riding on their shoulders.
Get lost in the rich lore of the worlds and watch the story unfold through cut-scenes, a cast of unlikely heroes, and the wonderful emotion driven soundtrack!
Eldric awoke – startled awake – but not sure what had startled him.
Then he remembered…”Damn! Not that stupid dream again!” The dreams had been getting more frequent. But he always seemed to wake up just as he got to the part of understanding what the stupid dream was supposed to be telling him. But today was different. Today, he had gone further into the dream than before.
Why am I always late? Eldric threw himself out of bed, dunked his head into the water basin, and quickly threw on his clothes. He needed to get to work. To the forge and the smithy.
He ran across the field to the blacksmith shop door, and flung it open. “Get the fires stoked nice and hot, Eldric”, Smithy Geor always chided. “Get ‘em glowing orange and red like the very fires of hell!” Geor would always say with that booming laugh. Well today he would do just that.
Today I learn Magecrafting! Real crafting! The magery, magical, alchemic kind!
Eldric entered the shop unaware of the eyes watching him from just beyond the pumpkin field fence, just into the morning trees in the forest of Westwood.
He was unaware that while he had slept, the small adamantium crystal given to him in his youth by his parents the day they disappeared, had been glowing on the leather cord tied around his neck.
Unaware of the war brewing between the kingdoms; of a King and his daughter’s disagreement; of the shadows beginning to creep across the land – unaware that the stories being told of strange dark creatures beginning to appear seemingly from nowhere, and attacking innocent townsfolk across the rural lands might actually be more than just tall tales told beside a campfire to scare friends.
But unawareness could stop you dead in your tracks from things you thought weren’t even real. Unawareness could even hang the fate of the worlds upon your shoulders – if you weren’t careful – without you even knowing it.
Unawareness could kill you in a bloody heartbeat.

“Anyone can say something is unique, revolutionary, and will pull at your heartstrings, but not everyone has something to show for it. Just take a look at the beautiful imagery. It looks like something you can hang on your wall, or use as a wallpaper on your computer.”
“The dev wants it to be a looker, too. Instead of just clogging up the various app stores with another pixel-art RPG…”
