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!
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 think everyone who played “The Tides of Time” still remember one more amazing feature of this game: during the story Ecco transformed into a seagull, jellyfish, shark, Vortex drone and even a small shoal of fish! Metaspheres were created by Asterite to help our dolphin to overcome all the dangers, both in the present and in the future.
Game: Ecco the Dolphin - The Tides of Time, Sega, Novotrade, 1994
Materials: watercolor, acrylic, colored pencils.
Я думаю, что каждый, кто играл в “Приливы Времени”, помнят еще одну удивительную особенность: в ходе повествования Экко успевает трансформироваться в чайку, медузу, акулу, дрона Вортекса и даже маленькую стайку рыб. Метасферы создала Астерит, чтобы помочь дельфину избежать опасностей, как в прошлом, так и в будущем.

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!
Redo of an old work Vibrations.
My ancient works are pretty bad by now,
Oh god! The cringe.lmao, but they inspire me. :’C <3 It is good to go back to them.^^ I might do some before-after memes. :)
I love the old piece for the gritty experimenting, but I think my art now defeats it. 5 years later, woo!
This is very nostalgic of Eccos 1st adventure. The return of Asterites globe, with an almost metamorphosis effect. The most basic concept can really punch you in the feels. |D
… Hail the tuna! :U
