There's not a whole lot to the gameplay besides passing dice rolls, resource management, and tuning songs, but the story and the lore are fantastically well told and the characters really prod at your heartstrings. And the soundtrack is just as beautiful as the previous entries in the universe. If you're looking for a more low-key narrative heavy adventure game, give this overlooked title a shot.


Play this game. It's a lot of reading, but the lore is some of the most enthralling I've read. Add to that the absolutely beautiful soundtrack and amazing art, and you have a game that will definitely stay with you for a long time.


Sentimentalismo fallido.

De encontrar nuestro lugar en el mundo. Amar y pertenecer, incluso chorrocientos mil años en el futuro, fuera en el espacio, desterrados y sin nombre. De hallar nuestra propia voz y resonar en el corazón de los demás, los recuerdos que dejamos nuestra forma de viajar a través del espacio tiempo. Quizá solo seamos polvo en el viento, pero polvo de estrellas. No seremos ni un grano de arena en el cosmos, pero no hay estrella que brille como una historia de amor. Un viaje, una familia, un sacrificio.

El planteamiento es bello y hasta cierto punto su historia y world-building convencen, pero el sentimentalismo barato de OPUS: Echo of Starsong es un lastre demasiado pesado. Esos reincidentes flashbacks, subrayando; esos constantes lloros, con lágrimas enfáticamente animadas e iluminadas (sobre imágenes estáticas). Demasiado.
