From Software might have set the world on fire in recent years with the game-changing Souls RPG series, but they've had a long history of innovation—even if their technology wasn't always up to snuff. And one of their more interesting creations of the PlayStation era came in the form of Echo Night, a first-person adventure game that bears a striking resemblance to the recent wave of "walking simulators" taking the indie world by storm. On this episode of Retronauts Micro, join Bob as he breaks down what makes this game so special—and why you should give it a try the next time you're browsing PSN.
