About

Welcome to Echo Tokyo...

Game - Quick Info

Echo Tokyo is set in a dystopian cyber punk future, focusing on the adventures of Shizume Misaki, a Detective. To make a living she works as an investigator of Crimes and Mysteries for the people of the city.

We are looking to create an rpg atmosphere with a visual novel style, allowing the player to equip items for use when they explore the city, visit locations, meet new people, build relationships, solve mysteries and undertake all manner of jobs.

The Setting of Echo Tokyo

The game of Echo Tokyo is set in an unknown future, after a global cataclysm has left most of the world uninhabitable. However when the cataclysm came a few buildings in Tokyo survived and to continue survival used their great machines to build bridges between their buildings.

In-Game District: Slums
In-Game District: Slums

Hundreds of years later and hundreds of skyscrapers have been bridged together to create a new sustainable city in the sky above the devastation of Old City, many of it's people now oblivious to the past or how the city came about.

Those first few buildings now makeup the richest area of the city, known as the Core, leaving those less wealthy in Upper City, Lower City and the poorest of the poor to the Slums. The city somehow continues to function and thrive.

Gameplay of Echo Tokyo

The game has a heavy focus on choice and story, as you play you will have to make choices on who to speak to and how to speak to them, this will determine what unfolds as you play, who you meet and what locations you learn of and can visit.

Shizume's Flame Detective Office

Within the game you have the choice on what to do, including:

  • Explore the City
  • Visit Locations
  • Meet Contacts
  • Take Jobs
  • Investigate Crimes
  • Build Relationships
  • Fall in Love
  • Go Shopping
  • And a number of other things too...
    (more details to come in our updates)

In addition to the ongoing choices you will make in each game, when talking to characters you will be able to direct the flow of the conversation via a decision wheel. This decision wheel, will allow you to choose whether you are happy, friendly, flirty, angry etc... Different situations will have different options and your choice will determine how the conversation progresses.

Different situations will require different responses, but it will be up to you to decide what kind of person Shizume is and what she is willing to do in order to survive, is she happy to steal, lie, cheat or is she morally good. The choice of this will be yours.

Game Development

The game is currently in late stage Alpha with several hundred people already testing the builds we release with us focusing on creating a stable game with a working User interface.

We will begin the main beta development of the game at the start of 2016, by which time we will have the majority of the city designed and several major characters created. We will then continue development in beta until the game is ready for release.

We also will consider adding more content to this ultimate collectors edition, please note that it is unlikely that this set will be available to purchase at a later time due to the limited numbers we will be creating.

Past Physical DVD Backers - Upgrade Level

We have a special upgrade reward level, which will allow those who have already pre-ordered a physical copy of the Echo Tokyo game a chance to upgrade this reward giving you an additional saving as a thank you for your support in the early stages of development and prevent you from duplicating any rewards.

If you choose this reward level please make sure you use the same account as the one you used in the previous campaign otherwise we will be unable to match your two orders together to give you the upgrade and you will have to pay the difference. If unsure please contact us via Kickstarter before pledging.

Add-ons & Extras

Once the campaign is completed we will be using backer-kit to complete the orders easily. You will at the end of the campaign be sent a survey that will then allow you to answer questions so we can supply your rewards, in addition you can choose add-ons.

A variety of different add-ons will be available from physical posters, design rewards, character creator rewards and more digital content and items for other games by AJTilley.com Details of which will be available at the campaigns conclusion.

Stretch Goals

Stretch Goals will be announced once the primary target is reached, if you have any suggestions or requests please let us know by messaging us via Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

We have created several different games already, released across multiple platforms, as well as six different figurines with HK-Gensen. Our main challenge with this campaign is that this is our biggest game, biggest figurine and most ambitious project to date.

To ensure we can deliver a quality set of rewards and a great game we have organised a dedicated team to create this game and are working hard with all our manufacturers to create the best rewards we can to suit the scale of the project.
