Greco-Roman-Inspired Sci-Fi Metroidvania ‘Somber Echoes’ Revealed

Somber Echoes is a sci-fi Metroidvania that developer Rock Pocket Games, Lav Games, and publisher Bonus Stage call a “love letter” to the genre. It’s set 3000 years in the future aboard the Greco-Roman spaceship called Atromitos, where “infested horrors from another dimension” now run rampant. It features seven visually distinct districts and is powered by Unreal Engine 5. It’s due out on PC this Fall.

The 2.5D graphics set it a bit apart from the usual retro looks many Metroidvanias rock, and the developers hope the Greek-tragedy inspriation will further help it stand out from the crowd. Rock Pocket Games told IGN, “A cataclysmic event turned the once beautiful and proud Greco-Roman space vessel Atromitos into breeding grounds for infested horrors from an unknown dimension. In the aftermath, a mysterious force chooses to interfere with destiny and awaken Adrestia from rubble and ashes. As Adrestia, you are trying to stop your twin sister Harmonia from unraveling the universe, but many questions remain unanswered. In the search for answers you explore the vast space vessel while gaining powers, knowledge and skills for what might save your ultimate destiny.”
