An echo in motion. Notice the distorted cloud of particles making up the scene.

A Time Echo is an echo of the past where Jack Joyce can observe and hear a past event, such as a conversation between two guards, or a character speaking to himself. Echos are often used throughout the game to recover information such as item locations or security codes. They manifest visually as slightly distorted clouds of particles forming a small scene, which animates when activated.
