A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

(The Smoke Room contains themes of an adult nature - you must be 18 or older to play)

The Smoke Room is a horror/romance visual novel set in a small desert town in the year 1915. It is a standalone prequel to Echo.

Moving to the town of Echo was a bad idea. Trusting someone he barely knew was an even worse one. The Smoke Room tells the story of Samuel, a sex worker in the town's most infamous brothel. After making the biggest mistake of his life, Sam will struggle to keep it a secret. He comes to realize however, that doing so might be impossible...Echo itself seems to know what he's done, and it's not keen on letting him forget.

The music... can we talk about the amazing music? gosh


Where is android


Look on their Patreon


how would you update this on android?


Look on their Patreon


I like the designs of Nik and William the most, however... William seems to have a bad case of "toxic masculinity with a side of internalized homophobia" despite going for Samuel's services, and using him for his advantage. Which is a pity, because I liked William's design the most. I really do hope he gets his head out of his ass and corrects that... 



Just played the new update. Loved it.

Murloch is so damn cute! Surprised that he's bottom too haha. Was thinking everyone would be top in that situation.

He seems very caring also. Liked him. 

Curious to see his father mood changes 🤣

Waiting for more hehe

Also waiting for William. His art is so damn hot that I want to see the sex scene ASAP 😈

Dunno if it's the way they talk in the game time but isn't that "separates my from the abyss" wrong? Like it should be "me" instead of "my".

The sheat part repats two times.

"Scrub in in"

Damn he's too cute that my heart is melting. Tho that face of his makes me want to hug and comfort him as much as possible. Tho he is still charming and sexy even in that moment haha 

eh, I like him too but after finished Echo we all know this is not going to end well.

Well, my first option was Nik, nothing new... then William, then Cliff, and well, Murdoch wasn't an option at all... But it seems I have no other choice than give him a try, or wait for the next update xD

Murdoch is absolute perfection, I came harder to his sex scene harder than I have to anything else in my entire life

The way he's so taunting, so teasing, so blunt and not afraid to push people's buttons, yet able to share that genuine kindness and concern enough that he'd go out of his way to help Samuel make a living is so heartwarming

Echo Project VNs are always top quality VNs, and this one is no exception, can't wait to see more of him

Also, while things could go bad for Samuel for telling the truth, he's entirely in the right, after all jack tried to kill him, but the more he waits, the more suspicious it will seem, the more likely the opposite will seem to be the truth

I believe this goes over the event that leads to the true cursing of the town, the hanging of the two lovers, which as is talked about in the quartz mines, absorbs negative energy, which grew as the town killed more people, but that's just a theory, a VN theory...

I'm having a problem with the android update it is saying that it is not downloaded. What do I do?


What's new in this update? I accidentally deleted my data and I don't feel like rereading the whole thing just to see if there's like a few new lines of text or something xD

There is a skip button dude hahaha

I just downloaded it... and omg, the tittle screen soundtrack is just beautiful. It gave me the chills the moment it started and I left it there playing untill the end.

I haven't started the story yet, but after reading that journey that Chase and his friends had during that week in Echo, and all of its endings, I'm pretty sure I'll love this. Hell, I love it already!

Hey just play the update, i was bout to leave a comment after finishing the after patch and i realize of the update so. i had to play it before i comment, i must say you are doing a great job, in this update i think the gramar errors were fixed which was fine, but might make the game look messy.  either way to comment on the game is really Good  its interesting cuz the setting and whats going on so far is not something you commonly see… like this perspective of life aside from that it has interesting and charismatic characters added up to that great plot. Sort of sad how things went anyway im looking foward for more of this. keep up the Good job




You did a good job with story telling, drawing and with characters but please put more choises in the next patches


Omg I need to know how it continues . Will be anxiously waiting for more.

Confess that I understood like almost nothing...English is not my main language so I was basically dozing off with some dialogues, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Just something I'm intrigued...the creature in the home page is the main character? 

It is strange to play with a character that has my name, but it makes me feel more like I'm really living the story... Tho I do think those nicknames are veeery strange. Never saw them before haha. Oh, miss, actually someone did called me Sammy one time, but the usual is just Samu ou Samuca. Seems like it varies from culture to culture.

Man u r good at scaring me haha I was all tensed in the mine part. Reminded me of Echo too...

It seems like you loves those uh? Forgot it's animal name lol. Chris dude species... If it's really Chris lol I not certain anymore...the elegant dude that got beaten up.

I found some bugs with the text in Android version, also some grammar erros.



Needed to read it in the history log

Maybe I'm blind but I can't a severe expression in her face :P

History log too

Waiting for more 🥰

Could you make a version compatible with windows x86 32bit? I can't play that version you have posted...

this is looking good I can't wait for more of this.


Thank you so much for another game Echo Project! 💕


This looks good!


Thats some neat arts used for this one~


I really hope that you can ACTUALLY romance characters in this game, unlike it's sequel... 


Can't wait to get my emotions crying!


T I M E   T O   S U F F E R   A N E W   : D


Oh grate a game named after the place that nearly broke me in Echo can't wait for more gut-wrenching horror and uncomfortable feelings.


...Wait are the Echo Project games based on one of the many real places named Echo?


This is the same Echo from Echo but a different time isn't it? You even see old photos with some of these characters in the Echo game. 

I'm sure it is the same one. I dunno, it just sounded like you were referring to place you've been in real life. I know there are multiple towns IRL called Echo.

no I never been to one, places like this do exist though but I would never go to one I would probably have a mental brake down if I found myself in Chase's shoes. Just reading about had my stomach in knots I can only imagine how I would react if I found myself in that situation for real.

If I were to guess, I'd say the games are based on abandoned mining towns in either New Mexico, or Arizona. I couldn't find one named Echo, but there are a lot of similarities, like the Mesita tribe's whereabouts, and the temperature and landscape. What's interesting, is that there is a city called Pueblo in South Colorado, which is the name of the college that Jenna and Chase were enrolled in during the game. TJ Chase and Jenna's long drive at the beginning of the game would be very similar to driving to Western New Mexico or to eastern Arizona.

I can't find a single place named Echo around those parts.

There's a former coaling station named Echo in Utah. Dunno if the coal mines were also there, but it did have a brothel.

Yeah it's most likely Echo, Utah, since they mention the nearby town of Coalville in a couple of the routes
