made available a PS4 video trailer for There Came an Echo, which features an absurd voice cast with PlayStation 4 Story details below.
To quote: So, we're indie developers. By and large, indie folk don't really do "story" the same way larger developers do... it's usually more minimalistic, and for lack of a better word, "artsy". Which is cool! There's space in the gaming sphere for everything, even whatever Suda 51's up to these days.
Still, we don't think "indie" and "complex narrative with well-developed characters and realistic dialogue" are mutually exclusive.
The voice command gameplay of There Came an Echo and its script were developed in conjunction with one another - the story is an integral part of the experience, not something tacked on after the fact.
The four members of your squadron aren't mindless military drones, but real people with imperfections, desires, and fears. And snark. They're pretty snarky.
And voice acting. If you've got voice acting, it better be good, or it's going to completely ruin the experience. Luckily, we're located in Hollywood, and we happen to know some people who are very good at saying things we tell...
