Etherborn is an elegant leap in the gravity-puzzle genre; an environmental puzzle platformer built on exploring and understanding gravity-shifting structures.

You are a voiceless being that has just been born into a world where a bodiless voice awaits your arrival. As your first thoughts emerge, you realise your journey has just begun. You must reach this ethereal voice to fully understand your own existence.

In this world, the laws of physics behave in a way that will bend your imagination. You experience gravity perpendicular to the surface you are standing on, allowing for creative exploration possibilities in environments carefully crafted as navigation-based puzzles.

Travel through beautiful and exotic sceneries where each level is an organic puzzle that you need to explore, manipulate and shift your gravity on in order to decipher the way forward.



ETHERBORN FEATURES:


Gravity-shifting platforming and exploration

Navigation based puzzles based on your unique sense of gravity

Surreal levels in an atmosphere inspired by artists of the 20th-21st centuries

Etherborn is a compelling, gravity-shifting puzzle platformer, but its convoluted plot and limited worlds stop it from being exceptional.

Etherborn is a great puzzle game that fascinates us by level design, art, soundtrack and tone. Although there are also some mistakes, it's one of the great titles of this year 2019, we mustn't lose track of Altered Matter.

Etherborn has so much potential, but its best moments are over far too quickly, leaving little replay value aside from showing people how cool the design is.

Overall, Etherborn is a short and sweet puzzle platformer that centers around ideas of identity and purpose.
