Out there in the Atlantic Ocean a storm rages eternally on; a tempestuous maelstrom that hides a story lost in time and it's a story that we're going to be delving into for this let's play.
From Software has quite a diverse catalog of games that they've managed to produce over the years; Demon Souls, Metal Wolf Chaos, King's Field, Armored Core. Today however we're going to be taking a look at one of their lesser known franchises, Echo Night. Now Echo Night is a first person adventure mystery game that leaves the player exploring a remote location in the hopes of unraveling the mystery surrounding said place while dealing with the locale's current denizens (usually of a ghostly nature) via a means of placating the spirits rather than just out and out combat. For the first installment of the series the player takes control of Richard Osmond, a man who has recently received a letter from his estranged father requesting an audience with his son and all this just snowballs into a series of events that will lead Richard into not only learning about his father's sordid past but also the disappearance of 45 people aboard the cruise ship, Orpheus.
Now the Echo Night games are known for a couple of key things; first they always have an amazingly rocking soundtrack (especially this game) and secondly they are known for an engaging story, so I please ask that we keep a to no spoiler policy.
