Cococumber's Echo Generation is a stunning voxel art RPG lite that will sweep you off your nostalgic feet, if you were alive during the late 80s and throughout the 90s. It wears its setting influence(s) on its sleeve, and then some. But can all the cool-kid nods to the best pop-culture carry it all the way through?
Well, that's the question we set ourselves out to answers. Here's a snippet from our investigative findings:
Tell me if you’ve heard or seen this one before: A couple of kids live with their mum in a small town. For five years their dad has been gone, but mum (mom) still sets a place for him at the table, and the family car he used to fix sits unused in the driveway. The kids have no idea what happened to their old man, and mum won’t say a thing about it outside of getting upset. He worked for the local science mob, FST, but beyond that anything else about him is a mystery. They have friends, and they’re all working on making an alien-themed movie out in the cornfields just outside of town. They all also have a treehouse clubhouse.Click here for our full Echo Generation review.
