Almost Halfway & Echoes!
During the course of the project, Brie has been working to ensure we have a complete document with a variety of materials. With that in mind, they’re going to be creating something new for Behind the Masc – an audio-supported game! The game will come with full text and full audio versions, but is intended to be played with a combination of the two. It will include a simple single-page illustration in the zine.
Echoes is an audio-text single-player roleplaying game in which you, Hero, have had something stolen from you by the fey, something precious and valuable. You must travel through caverns and mimic tones that unlock enchanted doors and unfurl the illusions keeping you from what was stolen. Echoes is a reinterpretation of the heroic archetype as shown in the hero’s journey, and the mechanic of matching your voice to the tones calls to Brie’s own experiences with having the “right” vocal tone for their gender.
We really appreciate your support and hope that you’re just as excited as we are about Echoes and all of the other game and art content in Behind the Masc! We’re almost halfway there, and there are more announcements to come! Remember to share the Kickstarter link to help us reach our goal so you can get a sweet zine in September!
