Echo of the Wilds is a puzzly narrativy adventure, featuring randomised wilderness survival.
Finding yourself in mysterious forests you must unfurl a
spiritual tale of solace before the unending winter consumes all. There a spirit guide will help you learn the skills of survival and the secrets of the wilds: why you awakened there, their purpose, and how to finally be free from its clutches and malevolent apparitions.
The gameplay focuses on exploration and survival of the randomised wilds.
Gathering resources to build gear and sustain yourself, learning new skills and the intertwining interactions between the various areas, seasons, and weather.
The game includes 26 areas to discover and 187 items, including food, resources, tools, clothes, gear and furniture. There's also an 'Endless' game mode which removes all narrative to focus on simply surviving through the ever fiercer ages.
Any reasonably modern Windows PC or Mac should comfortably run Echo of the Wilds, but it's highly recommended you give this demo (Win, Mac) a whirl before purchasing to ensure hardware compatibility, especially Mac OS X 10.6 users.

"Echo Of The Wilds is a mysterious, beautiful game that isn’t easily boxed and isn’t quite like anything else I’ve ever played. A strong narrative runs through it, nothing is as it seems and as the mysticism and nightmares pile up the reward is a glimpse through a window into a weird and wonderful world." - Rock Paper Shotgun
"Echo of the Wilds is gorgeous, a beautifully crafted survival sim with an expansive narrative and unique style. The story will appeal to those who like cryptic psychological tales and the writing is another strong point, a contrast of epic and unconventional that's entertaining, effective, and adds a lot of humor." - Game Maker News Bite
