It is the third game in the Echo Night series
Setting: The Moon / Space ~ Year 2044

Weapon of choice: Nothing. Literally nothing.
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!
