Description: Traverse the fractured scapes to test your skills, uncover the stories of the ancients, or explore the mystical world around you in search of secrets. A zen adventure-platformer with light puzzle-solving elements set in a beautiful, vibrant world, Etherian offers hours of gameplay from navigating the obstacle course like levels and learning the story of your ancestors, to seeking out secrets, unlockables, and easter eggs.
Review: Etherian is a dreamlike adventure game that sees you jumping about on rocks and underwater all the while solving various puzzles along the way (none of which are too taxing). The good news is the game looks amazing and has more content than you would think given its current £7.19 price tag. But it is the motion method that kills this game for me personally as I just feel it is unnecessary. I feel ‘Etherian’ would have been even better if it wasn’t for the jumping mechanic being so nauseating, but there you go. It’s still worth a look but maybe wait for a small sale before giving it a chance.
