    I came away from There Came An Echo quite sold on its unique approach to inputs, and that is both surprising, and really quite inspiring. Because it plays so differently, the game requires that you take a very different approach to playing it, and while I don’t think this is an innovation that’s going mainstream any time soon, having a voice controlled game on the PlayStation 4 makes for a unique, interesting, diversion. Throw in production values well beyond what most indies can achieve, and a plot that will get you thinking across its last few hours, and you’ve got a genuinely worthwhile little experiment here.

    The characters, world and narrative are well crafted and kept me absorbed throughout. The gameplay however is fairly basic and doesn’t really develop over the course of the story.

    If you're willing to work past some hurdles, there's a fair bit to like here, but it's probably best to wait for a sale.

    Easily confused AI and faltering tech, however, mean it largely struggles to find its voice. [Aug 2016, p.88]

    There Came an Echo feels like more of a proof of concept than an actual game.
