We’ve previously seen the team at Cococucumber release the quirky Riverbond and Planet of the Eyes to console and PC. Now though they are gearing up to build on those title with a new turn-based adventure and a time limited demo of that game will be present on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC – Echo Generation.

Available for play between December 8th-15th 2020, the demo for Echo Generation from Cococucumber sees players take in a new voxel based adventure RPG that follows a gang of kids investigating supernatural occurrences to save their small town.

Due for full release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam for PC in 2021, Echo Generation whisks us back in time to the summer of 1993; a summer which is very nearly at an end. It is here where we discover a sleepy Canadian town suddenly becomes home to strange accidents and mutated creatures, but the grown-ups won’t do anything about it. Instead it is left to the kids to take action, collecting comic books and snacks, hunting for quirky quest items and uncovering spooky clues to root out evil and fight back against forces unknown.

The limited-time demo for Echo Generation sends a dynamic brother-sister duo, each with their own powers and baddie-stomping abilities, out into the world. You’ll be able to join them on their first steps of this journey, and it is sure to bring nostalgia to any child of the ‘80s and ‘90s, face off against trash pandas, giant rats and manic mechanical monsters in turn-based combat.

As you’d expect, kids that go about saving the world are tough, but they are not invincible and will need to take advantage of quick-time events and mini games to defend, snag a critical hit or nail a sweet combo. Kicking, punching, and busting some sweet moves is the order of the day with skills learnt from comics. You’ll also be able to unlock cool powers by doing what kids do best: exploring! Conquer quests in a vibrant, voxel-based world, trekking through town to grooving electropop and pumping synthwave tunes.

Echo Generation promises to bring a vibrant, fascintaing world to life on Xbox Series X|S with a gorgeous 4K presentation on Series X and 60 FPS on both current-gen consoles. Whether playing on Xbox One consoles or the latest and greatest, adventurous spirits will find a haunting-yet-hopeful journey colored with childlike imagination.

“We hope to give fans a taste of the nostalgic and slightly kooky world of Echo Generation, where high-spirited kids take off on adventures around their neighbourhood,” said Martin Gauvreau, Game Director at Cococucumber. “Moments of mystery and haunting atmosphere contrasted with an absolutely banging soundtrack and active turn-based battles will keep you on your toes.”

Echo Generation launches in 2021 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam for PC but the time-limited demo will be available for play between 8th-15th December 2020. Make sure you check it out. As you should the latest trailer too.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
