It’s Ecco’s Birthday!
I have just noticed that we’re currently during Ecco the Dolphin’s 20th anniversary. I haven’t seen much congratulatory messages around the net, which is really sad. Ecco was and still is a beautifully unique game and is really difficult. Happy anniversary, Ecco!! I hope your new spin-off, The Big Blue makes it to consoles.
We had a pretty big party at Fuck Yeah Ecco last year, on the day and month of the anniversary. :)
Some new rewards and reward tiers have been added to the Big Blue Kickstarter! Namely, an atlas and an artbook!
Please consider a donation if you haven’t made one already! And if you can’t donate, spread the word! Let’s get this game funded!
Is there a way to use kickstart without a credit card? I wanted to donate $25 but have no credit card. D:
Sorry, Kickstarter is credit card only!
The Big Blue
ATTENTION ECCO FANS: A KICKSTARTER YOU WILL WANT TO FUND.
Ed Annunziata has launched the Big Blue Kickstarter! You may remember hearing about this game a few months back. It’s a spiritual sequel to Ecco (because SEGA are being idiots about this and refuse to give Ed the Ecco license) about life evolving after the extinction of humankind. Cetaceans, of course, hold the key to life arising anew and rejuvenated for this new world.
The idea is to generate new life via songs, and the music is provided by none other than Spencer Nilsen, who composed the music for the original Ecco games, in particular the CD versions. Plus, most of the original Ecco team is working on it! They also have creature designer Art Berg (Star Wars) and composer Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) on board, too!
Please proceed to the Kickstarter page to learn more about the game - it looks stunning and just the sort of beautiful underwater adventure Ecco fans have been champing at the bit for. Perks include your name in the game credits, exclusive ingame content, and at high levels entry into the beta!
I am suuuuper excited about this, everyone, and I hope you are, too. Please, throw some money at this project, and if you can’t do that, reblog and share far and wide! If we can’t have the Tides sequel Ecco deserves, let us at least have this!
I just came up with this ASCII Art for Ecco. Everyone feel free to use it and spread awareness for this awesome franchise.
Here’s the blueprint: _(^~*^ \_ ß
the ß is a german letter pronounced “sS”
Thanks for the submission! :D Took me a moment, but I see him!
The Ecco the dolphin games are amazing. Whoever made them was some kind of godlike creature, and they make me cry to think of how beautiful they are. Can I just, like, thank you forever for making this blog? ;u;
Aw, you’re very much welcome. :) What a wonderful series is Ecco, and how much more acclaim it deserves!
