We have built the final release for you to enjoy. Sounds in the game now are temporary and we will hopefully get new ones during the summer. For now...
Ether is a puzzle game that makes use of the already implemented physics, but lets the player interact with them in a completely new way. Taking place in a world were gravity has shaped everything from animals to houses, and from weather to communication devices, the player is faced with different obstacles on her way through the game. To progress, the player has the ability to change the gravitational state of nearly every loose object in the environment using a stick. This stick can turn objects weightless, freeze them mid-air or have them fall back on the ground. Hoping to bring a brand new experience with the game play we have no intentions of leaving the visuals unaltered. The Source Engine is deeply modified to provide a vision of something new, a world that feels alive and different from what you have seen before.
We were contacted a few weeks back by Gamestar, a German magazine, and they wanted to publish our mod on their DVD this month. Of course we'd let them! It will be featured in the next issue but in all the excitement I forgot to ask what date it is released.
The song in our trailer(s) has been requested by some as well. It is now available on our site via this link. Enjoy all you want!
