DescriptionHundreds of years in the future, mankind and dolphins live peacefully together and share the earth. Dolphins, who are much more intelligent than they seem, act as the earth's caretakers, while dolphins and humans explore the galaxy. An alien force, known as the Foe, seeks to end this happy existence. The Foe damages the Earth's defense system, and alters history for the worse. One extraordinary dolphin, Ecco, must travel through time to set things right.
Ecco is a 3d underwater adventure game. There are more than 25 aquatic environments to explore. Ecco must communicate with other ocean creatures and learn to manipulate his environment if he is to succeed in defeating the Foe.

David BrinThe original storyline for this game was written by Science-Fiction writer David Brin. Brin has won two Hugo Awards (the Hugos are the Oscars of SF), one for Startide Rising and one for The Uplift War. Both novels are part of the Uplift series, and guess what: very intelligent dolphins play a big role in the series.
ExtrasIncluded with the European version of this game is a product catalogue that showcases amongst other things the unreleased Half Life port for the Dreamcast.
