Etherborn is a title featured at IndieCade 2017.
Etherborn is an exploration platforming game set in a strange and exotic world, where the laws of physics behave in a completely different way than in ours. The main character experiences gravity in a direction perpendicular to the surface she’s standing on, allowing endless exploration possibilities in beautifully crafted environments. The game offers a series of navigation-based puzzles; players will have to explore their surroundings in order to figure out each one’s underlying logic, find the correct route to advance and unlock it.
The story follows a voiceless being that has just been born into a world where a bodiless voice awaits her arrival. Wandering through the trunks of the Tree of Life, she will have to understand the meaning of what she sees in order to grow and reach her voice. During this journey, she’ll meet with a mysterious character called Keaton that will tell her about his life.
Thanks to these encounters, the player will soon understand the contrast between these two beings: while she’s in her first journey through Life, Keaton is in his last one.
