lvbldevil finished Echo: Route 65
while i gather my final thoughts about echo for a review i decided to play this little prequel (probably clocks in at around a hour) about events that are already told in the main game but here are revisited and explained better (the house in fata morgana a requiem for innocence type beat if you know what im talking about) and if you want to read some more about echo (im positive you will) this is a good addendum
as for the game itself its about things you already know starring characters you already know and music you already listened to a hundred of times and honestly im good with that
narrative wise its pretty straightforward they just put a slice of life mood over everything and just go with the goofy story with some horror-ish elements here and there to remind you that this is in fact still echo
im assuming you already read echo when you get to this and i can say that seeing the characters in wholesome friendships opposed to what they live through in echo is very nostalgic and somehow bittersweet when you know how they will inevitably stray away from one another in the main game
as a standalone expansion to the story i do think this is a competent one (better than benefits for sure) so i guess theres no reason to not check this out if youre curious
that being said i wanted to talk about something more personal here to the 3 people that will read this review
the main story plot in this prequel revolves around chase trying to cope with his homosexuality after his parents caught him watching gay porn on the laptop (what a cliche) and trying to tell his friends about it basically coming out
as a gay guy these themes struck with me closer than they shouldve and i was brought almost to tears during a lot of scenes here and there
again this aint like the best written stuff in the echo universe or even the deepest but something about it made me so sad and reminiscing and in a way even wish i had friends like these or even a supportive boyfriend like leo growing up
everything chase does and thinks sounded so personal to me his anxiety for something that was and is generally considered shameful (even more in a small and closed town like echo) the stigma of being gay growing up as a "different" human being from the others his need for affection that led him to make contact with online people the terror that made him flee from his home due to the possible reactions that this would cause his parents and the isolation that he feels in a world where queer people are nothing more than something to just "put up with"
thanks to his confrontation with and support received by his friends and leo he learns how to live with this step by step in a motion to accept his sexuality as a whole and move on with his new boyfriend even accepting to discuss this situation with his parents
at the end of this game i felt a lot of weights on my chest and i needed some time to fully recover from it and even now i still am somehow startled from everything in here
maybe it was because im still very emotional about all the stuff in echo or maybe its because i love leo a not so normal amount but i hope the events unfolding here will resonate with any lgbt pal out there or this is gonna show how much of a crybaby i am
to this day i still struggle with my sexuality and its something im not proud of and reading stuff like this gives me a catharsis of some sort to just pull through and be happy
i grew up a in situation like chase: gay and alone in a small little town with nobody to talk about this stuff and nobody like me to share a teenage young love with so i know what this vn is trying to convey and i see it
echo is definitely something that i will remember forever for talking about the most human stuff and also the worries that people like me have to endure on a day to day basis and i wish i couldve read this vn when i was around the main characters age so i could just tell myself that theres people out there who understand what i went through and am going through and that it gets better somehow (i have yet to find an hispanic extroverted wolf bf who calls me estupido and puchica but that doesnt sound so hard to do)
i havent come out to my parents yet in my 20 years of life span but maybe someday i will have the phone call that pulls the theatre curtains to this short story and who knows how it will go
in the meantime im glad i experienced something that had such a massive impact on my life as echo
didnt expect to write something like this for a gay furry vn but the tenderness that oozes from every single dialogue is something that few things managed to accomplish in the videogame landscape
i hope everyone who reads this has someone supporting them through life and i hope you enjoyed echo as much as i did
ok back to my normal self this review is so fucking long shit and its not even the main game i can only imagine how much time i will spend on that one damn
leo why arent you real
