A new indie studio based in Denmark has announced its first game. Echo will be themed around stealth and action, and players will follow a girl who is trying to survive the cryptically-named Palace.

Presumably you'll be able to choose your strategy as you move through the halls of the aforementioned Palace, either going through fighting everyone you can, or quietly moving through in the shadows, avoiding combat as much as possible. Here's the official description:

After a century in stasis the girl En arrives at her destination: A Palace out of legend, a marvel of the old civilization eons gone, still awaiting its first human occupants. Out here, using forgotten technologies, she hopes to bring back a life that shouldn't have been lost. But nothing could have prepared her for what she'll face in the ancient halls below.

The experience starts as a character driven journey of discovery, but as it unfolds it evolves into something altogether more punishing. Gameplay revolves around Stealth and Action, as you face off against the strange workings of this place. You might be quick on your feet and quite able to defend yourself, but everything has consequences here. Whatever your strategy, one thing is certain: You must keep your wits about you if you are to survive the Palace.

Ultra Ultra, the studio behind the game, is a small team made up of eight people, many of whom have come from IO Interactive, best known for the Hitman series. If you're interested in the title, you can check out more on their Steam Greenlight page and watch the trailer below.
