This delay happened due to developers Ready at Dawn wanting more time to polish and refine the game. They’d rather release a complete and functioning game rather than a broken or buggy one. They said: “The decision to delay a game is always a tough one but we believe you all deserve to experience the very best we can deliver.”
Lone Echo Synopsis
Players play as Jack, a cutting-edge android stationed at a mining facility in deep space. After a spatial anomaly appears out of nowhere, Jack must manoeuvre in zero gravity to investigate the looming threat and get Captain Rhodes to safety.
In Lone Echo 2, after the events of Lone Echo. Captain Olivia “Liv” Rhodes and Echo One “Jack”, find themselves 400 years in the future. They discover they are aboard a mysterious space station that seems abandoned. Liv and Jack must solve the mystery of this future space station if they want to find their way home.
The VR element of the game adds a new kind of depth to it. Although, it’s worth considering that some people get motion sickness from the ‘zero gravity’ element of the gameplay.
