Echo is a video game without video. It was made at the Malta Global Game Jam 2014 by Bernard Brincat and myself.
The game requires at least 2 people to play, and needs a mobile device and a laptop or tablet. One player plays as the bat; they are blindfolded and given a pair of headphones that are connected to a mobile device. The other player plays as the eyes; they are given a laptop or tablet that can send sounds to the other player, used to control the direction of their physical movement.
Below, you can see a video of a game in progress.
Echo also happened to appear on local television! More specifically, the game is being played in the background during a spotlight on the Malta Global Game Jam (interviewing Patricia Pizer, who was the keynote speaker).
