Taking that nightmare of being chased around by a masked assailant and dialing up a notch, the first-person Horror Puzzler Echoplex is now on Steam Early Access. Locked in a futuristic facility, it’s the player’s job to escape a series of rooms while being pursued by clones of themselves.
For fright fans, take a look at these truly terrifying PC horror games.
Well I say pursued, the clones are just following a path you previously took through the room. The core mechanic of Echoplex is that at certain time intervals, a clone or ‘Echo’ of you will appear in the room. These Echoes follow your exact movements, walking the same path and hitting the same switches as you. While they seem frightening at first, players must soon learn how to exploit these phantoms to continue their progress through the facility.
