Doomsday Lost Echoes (DDLE) is a graphical text adventure. The player, you, uses text input to control the game and the computer reveals what is happening via text output. At the same time, the computer displays an image of the current location.
Doomsday Lost Echoes (DDLE) is a graphical text adventure game that can be played on a real Amstrad (CPC or Plus) or in an emulator.
The game requires 128KB of RAM and a floppy drive able to read 720KB discs.
The player uses text input to control the game, and the computer reveals what is happening via text output.
At the same time, the computer displays an image of the current location, and there are more than sixty graphics the player can enjoy, including cutscenes, introduction, locations, and different endings.
All of them are fine works of pixel art created with the CPC in mind, and detailed examination of the pictures is required to discover hidden hints that are necessary to progress in the game.
The game was programmed specifically for the Amstrad CPC using the Professional Adventure Writing System (PAWS).
Although it is a text adventure, it relies extensively on graphics support and makes use of most of the PAWS capabilities.
DDLE can be played on a real Amstrad using a HxC or any other floppy emulator, which is actually the preferred option of the game’s creators.
Ideally, you should have two floppy drivers, but this is not strictly necessary.
The game’s creators spent many months working intensively on the project to produce the best possible bug-free classic adventure, and they hope players will enjoy it as much as they did.
