Echoes – So-far faced challenges

  • Flash – possible costs of the availability?

    • Vector rendering * many units = CPU intensive (for low end players)

  • Project mass – is Echoes too big for a web game?

    • Time & budget – rather expensive for independent

    • Support – recruiting the team and funding

      Well, let’s see
