Happy May Day! What are your favorite memories from Ether One?



Happy May Day Pinwheelians!

To celebrate we'd love to know everyone's most memorable May 1st experiences in Pinwheel. What did you all enjoy the most about spending time in Pinwheel & Ether One? Were you the type of player to wander through the environment just picking up the narrative? Or did you try to unravel every puzzle in the game? Possibly a mix of both?

Did the story connect with you on an emotional level? Could you relate to the story personally? Has it helped you understand or relate to dementia in any way?

Whatever your thoughts, we'd love you to share them here! :)

평가

“The world of Ether One is a superbly detailed and well thought-out place.”
4/5 – Joystiq

“It’s been just two days since I last player Ether One and I’ve not stopped thinking about it since. I thought about it before I went to bed last night, and the night before. I thought about it when I woke up this morning. I thought about it when I had lunch. So far I’ve sunk 12 hours into a game easily completable in four. I’ve not nearly managed to restore all of the projectors. And I've hardly scratched the surface.”
9/10 – Strategy Informer

“Superb: A hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.”
9/10 – Destructoid

Ether One is a first person adventure that deals with the fragility of the human mind.

There are two paths in the world you can choose from. At its core is a story exploration path free from puzzles where you can unfold the story at your own pace.

There is also a deeper, more adventurous path in which you can complete complex puzzles to restore life changing events of the patients history in order to help the validation of their life.

Parallel paths make Ether One accessible to a range of skilled players. Invite your friends and family around to pick their brains for help taking on challenging environmental puzzles, or soak in the atmosphere of Pinwheel at leisure. From a young age we enjoyed the first person puzzle games that required you to write cryptic notes on spare pieces of paper to unravel mysteries. Ether One aims to bring back pen and paper puzzle solving, whilst still being accessible and optional for people not wanting to get stuck and frustrated on the harder puzzles.

features

  • First Person Adventure Game.
  • Open narrative exploration in the town of Pinwheel.
  • Optional puzzle solving.
  • Accessible gameplay with additional controller support for players that aren’t as skilled with complex controls.
  • Challenging pen and paper puzzle design you can decrypt at your own pace.

이 게임의 간단한 개요는 정신치료 실험실에서 시작됩니다

실험실의 한 에이전트가 정신질환을 앓고있는 고갱님의 기억속으로 들어가서

재구성된 세계를 탐험하고

기억속의 상황를 경험하여

트라우마 원인을 밝혀내게 합니다.

어찌보면 곤홈의 방식에 투더문의 배경을 곁댄것으로 볼수도 있겠지요.

(* 물론 곤홈과 달리 퍼즐이 있습니다.)

이러한 게임의 특성상 게임 자체가 꽤 불친절하게 다가올수도있습니다.

스토리 자체도 각각의 물건이나 잠깐동안 나오는 나레이션으로봐야 파악될정도로 상당히 암시적으로 다가올뿐만 아니라

퍼즐을 풀때에도 '저널, 해설' 없이 오로지 그 근처의 물건이나 노트 등으로만 파악하여 풀어야합니다.

또, 퍼즐 자체도 "이것이 퍼즐입니당~" 이라고 직접적으로 보여주지 않으며

"연구원과 수행원이 서로 나누는 나레이션 혹은 클라이언트의 독백"이나 그 간의 스토리로 연계해야만 볼 수있는 퍼즐도 많습니다.

(물론 그렇다고 아예 퍼즐자체가 숨어있다는것은 아닙니다. 어느정도 뒤지다보면 감으로도 보입니다.)

퍼즐은 총 각 맵마다 3개가량 있으며 1개가량을 풀때마다 해당 룸과 관계된 스토리를 들려주고

클라이언트의 트라우마에 관련된 물건을 보여주어 스토리의 단서를 점차 밝혀냅니다


스토리는 저도 아직 반도 못끝낸 입장이라... 뭐라 할말은 없습니다

하지만 메타가 81이라는걸 보면 좋다는게 아닐까요

사실 이겜 한글화됬으면 좋겠습니다. 시간만 있었으면 갠적으로 하려했는데...

Ether One is a first person adventure where you play as a restorer and it's your job to restore the memories of a patient suffering from dementia. There are two paths you can choose, one where you casually experience the story and another where you test your own mind by solving the many optional puzzles sprinkled throughout the game.

Puzzles became challenging (at least for me) which I loved. The pacing of the story is perfect and I never felt rushed through the experience. I was able to go at my own pace and fully enjoy the Bioshock meets Half Life art style and the triple A quality voice acting. I defiantly recommend checking Ether One out for yourself, especially if you love a good puzzle and a look inside the human mind.

Hands up, I never finished the game and to be honest I'm not likely to.
Gameplay in Ether One is frustrating and counter intuitive.I know there is a puzzle to solve because there is a broken projector on the floor, but in order to solve the puzzle I have to first uncover what the puzzle is.
To solve a puzzle I may need 1 of many items that I have picked up and deposited on the shelves of my "Base" because I can only carry 1 item at a time. But which one goes where? I have to teleport back and forth in the trial and error of finding the right item.
I quickly encountered some game breaking bugs with some items not fitting where they should.
I found the graphics diassapointing in their blockiness and flat lack of detail, and to top it all I found myself frustratinglly stuck in a toilet stall unable to get out!
Other reviewers seem to love the story and gameplay of Ether One, and I am sure I am missing out, but this game is not for me

I just finished Ether One. It's a brilliant game with an exceptional story. It reminds me of the Adventure games of yore where it is best to take notes, make maps, draw diagrams and exam everything. I took my time and I worked on a section at a time trying to complete it before moving on. The puzzles can be challenging, but your note taking efforts will greatly help. This also comes in mighty helpful when it is necessary to go back into an area. These efforts will help to complete the game as it should be completed and the rewards for doing so are three-fold. The story is in-depth with a lot of substance. It's also a teaching experience. I finished with tears in my eyes, a filled heart and a mind enveloped in wonderment. This is, by far, one of the best games i have ever played. Outstanding !!

Ether One is a rather ambitious game that falls under the ever-popular "walking simulator" genre. On it's surface, Ether One seems like another stab at an Amnesia game, and whilst it does borrow alot of key features from them, it is something so much more different.

I have never quite played a game like Ether One, but it is one I have always dreamed of. A compelling narrative that can be enjoyed without the need of puzzles (but there are tons of optional ones) and a story that just makes you want to keep playing and playing until you reach that ending. Despite the core narrative being rather short, you can get well over 10 hours out of this game.

Whilst the game begins off rather tedious, Ether One quickly grabs you in with it's impressive story. Impressive is an understatement. It's been a long time since a game made me think, not just about the game itself, but about the value of human life, and just how fragile a thing like life is.

For an Indie title, this deserves the AAA treatment. Buy this. Right now.

+ Amazing narrative. One of the best I have experienced in years.
+ Puzzles and optional areas are plentiful
+ Looks, sounds, and is overall great
+ A very ambitious project. I'm glad it managed to produce something so inspiring.

- Gameplay will be boring if you don't pay attention.

10/10
