Conquering Yosemite (Echoes+ Update)

A new update for Echoes+ is out now, available either HERE or by connecting to a STEAM pipe.

The biggest fix is for Mac users where it hopefully addresses a disagreement I’ve been having with Yosemite. Basically I wanted Echoes+ to work and Yosemite didn’t.

As well as that there are a few other changes to both the Mac and PC versions, including a couple of popular requests.

  • added diagonals to keyboard movement (where supported by hardware)

  • screen resolution calculation changed

Sure, it looks pretty. But I want a goal to achieve. Like, “Save Princess Taloo from the evil Klavatorians.” How hard would that had been?

If Asteroids and Geometry Wars had an illegitimate lovechild that was kept in a closet and fed a steady diet of LSD and steroids, then that would explain what Echoes+ is.
