DISCOVER GHOSTLY MYSTERIES IN ‘ECHO GENERATION’ ON OCTOBER 21

Our days were spent in suburban playgrounds, exchanging local myths and legends, and generally having a good time in the 1990s. The upcoming RPG Echo Generation aims to evoke nostalgia through its aesthetics and gameplay.

Echo Generation was first revealed by indie developer Cococucumber at the Xbox Games Showcase in 2020, and it has since been released. On October 21, it will be available for download on the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, with a simultaneous launch on Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass for PC.

Despite the fact that many of us in Southeast Asia have never lived in the idyllic American suburban lifestyle, it’s easy to develop the secondhand sense of nostalgia that the Echo Generation is tapping into thanks to films such as The Goonies, E.T., and Netflix’s Stranger Things.

The story of Echo Generation takes place in a fictional version of the year 1993, when the seemingly peaceful town of Maple Town is rocked by a mysterious crash in the nearby cornfields, forcing the residents to postpone their summer vacation plans until further notice.

Soon after, strange occurrences begin to occur all over town. The player must gather his or her friends and embark on an adventure filled with neighborhood trash pandas, creepy animatronics, and mutant rat wolves on the prowl for a fight.

Players will find themselves immersed in supernatural mysteries as seen through the eyes of a lovable gang of children. Take part in turn-based battles with the scariest enemies, level up your party’s statistics, and uncover a major conspiracy in stunning 4K resolution and 60 frames per second if you have an Xbox One X.

Players get to choose and name their main character, just like they would in any old-school role-playing game, from a diverse selection of pre-teen heroes. In addition to recruiting adorable pet companions with unique skill sets that can be customized, players will be able to recruit neighborhood friends to join the fray.

While the majority of the fighting will take place in active turn-based combat, players can level up their party by participating in over 30 different minigames. Completeing quests for the residents of Maple Town will help players move closer to uncovering the mysteries that lie beneath the surface of the city.

For all of the ways in which Echo Generation pays homage to the 1990s, its voxel art style reinterprets the era in an astonishing 3D pixel appearance. In addition, the game’s original soundtrack, which you can listen below, is an atmospheric blend of electronic and synthwave music that adds to the overall atmosphere.

If you think Echo Generation sounds like a good time, you can find it on Steam.
