Eccoes

Eccoes is my attempt at creating a computer game geared around time travel. After realising how complicated it could be, I decided on a simple mechanic. The player can return in time to the start of the level, interacting with past copies of himself. Of course, great minds think alike, and I have found a couple of games that have simliar functionality. Braid. In Company of Myself, and Chronotron are all games that capture what I was going for. I think that I can still create something unique, so I haven't given up on it yet.

I have a proof of concept done to show that the game mechanic is possible. I've programmed it using Game Maker 7 and default graphics. At this point, all I have is the game mechanic, so I've got a lot of work to do.

Use the arrow keys to move, and the space bar to use the time travel ability. The counter is the current 'time'.

Enjoy.
