LOS ANGELES, CA, October 14th, 2015 – Iridium Studios, developer of the critically acclaimed Before the Echo and There Came an Echo, is proud to announce its first title, Before the Echo (formerly “Sequence”) is now available for the Mac and Linux platforms. It’s possible that they were recently inspired by that new Steve Jobs movie, or just happened to recently find a programmer who was good at this stuff. It’s a mystery, really.

“Our studies show that nearly four years after initial release is the optimal time to release ports of an indie game,” said Jason Wishnov, CEO of Iridium Studios, clearly indicating he does not know how studies work. “Now the vast hordes of fans, tired from their long years of chanting and summoning eldritch horrors in attempts to appease us, may finally go home and grab a nap.”

Before the Echo is a combination of a rhythm game and an RPG, featuring an 8+ hour story mode, over ninety minutes of voice acted dialogue, dozens of spells, and hilarious puns. It features 25+ tracks from phenoms Ronald Jenkees and Michael Wade Hamilton, and currently has an 86% positive user rating on Steam.
