[11 Mar 2021] Lost Echo: gamejam entry for the GlobalGameJam 2021.
Lost Echo is a gamejam entry for the GlobalGameJam 2021 created by Iarwain and Aumni.
This game won second place at the Montreal ETS site among roughly 270 other participants.
Lost Echo is developed entirely with Orx.
It’s a memory card game with a twist: designed as a local 1 vs 1 real-time strategy game where you try to find as many pairs as possible and can swap cards to confuse your opponent. Also playable solo (random swaps with highscore mode), or up to 4 players locally.
