What is Etherborn?

An environmental puzzle platformer built on exploring and understanding gravity-shifting structures in dreamlike, Escheresque levels.

You play as a voiceless being, born into a mysterious world where a bodiless voice calls to you, patiently drawing you to its location. You must take this blank soul on a journey to find its own conscience. Widen the limits of your perception and find the paths that are hiding before your eyes.

Traversal is built around your unique sense of gravity that anchors you to any surface you touch.

Moving through the world becomes the puzzle in itself as each level acts as a sort of environmental Rubik’s Cube that you need to explore, manipulate and shift perspective on in order to decipher the way forward.

Features

– Mind bending gravity-shifting-puzzle-platforming
– Perspective, exploration and navigation-based challenges using gravity manipulation
– Surreal, atmospheric 3D levels inspired by 20th-21st century artists
– A dark tale about self-discovery and the tragedy of human existence
– Dynamic and captivating soundtrack tailored to each level

Story

Etherborn delves into a hopeful yet equally dark notion.

It looks at the journey of discovery and struggle of finding your own voice. A voice is something you attain and shape throughout your life’s journey. However, the world itself often feels like an it is working against you when it comes to discovering your unique identity. It’ here that the game talks about how something as beautiful as language and knowledge, a key to who we are as humans, has actually become a burden on our choices.
