Ultimately it’s the controls that do Echo Night: Beyond in. The game’s atmosphere feels good but it’s almost too barren. Really walking (and sometimes slipping off) the tightrope between a really good sense of space and loneliness and just an unfinished game with not a lot to do. 

Typical Market Price: Currently starting at $65 on EBAY

Avoid those Moon Ghosts, Peeps!
