Bonus Stage Publishing and Rock Pocket Games have unveiled Somber Echoes, a sci-fi Metroidvania set in a Greco-Roman motif. The creators describe their work as a “love letter” to the genre.

  • A unique ambience of Greco-Roman science fiction
  • An intuitive combat system centered around acrobatic maneuvers, offering players maximum freedom
  • Seven distinct regions each with its own individuality
