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

May 1st, 2014



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! :)

Reviews

“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

About the Game



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.

  • Accessible gameplay with additional controller support for players that aren’t as skilled with complex controls.

I now write this review as I finished the game (main story). Gotta say: mind blowing. Without trying to spoil anything, let's just say the game puts you on somebody's shoes living a terrifying experience, one impossible to picture, unless it actually happens in your life at some point (hope not). It's an indie game delivering completely different experiences, the ones you don't find in most AAA games. Great adventure.

Stunning visuals, incredible audio and a genuinely moving narrative

Whether you play only for the main plot, ignoring the games many puzzles, or you take it slow and uncover all the mysteries Pin Wheel has hidden behind its spooky and unsettling atmosphere, Ether One will impress.

An independent studio boasting a triple A quality game, highly, highly recommend.

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.

Great game. The enviroment has a great feel to it, the graphics are good, and the music and sound just play out perfectly. Very fun adventure game, its nice to take a break from the constant fast paced FPS games of today. Although for me some of the puzzles were on the more challenging time, I never felt hopeless like I do in many puzzle games, and the game seemed to keep pusing you along even if you coulden't figure a puzzle out. I really do like this game, and I will definately reccomend it! Can't wait to see more come from White Paper Games!

This game has everything an adventure puzzle game needs. It has an engaging story line, great aesthetics, and challenging puzzles. If your not a fan of the puzzles or get stuck, you are able to continue the narrative and come back later if you choose. I found this game to have great pacing (go the speed that's comfortable for you) and to be nonlinear. Some elements of this game have qualities found in triple A titles (i.e. voice acting). I highly recommend this game to anyone interested in narrative focused or puzzle games.
