What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe the only way to make the best game we can is to work closely with our community. Isles of Etherion has not only a large open world to explore but also a number of unique gameplay mechanics. Working directly with our players allows us to receive instant feedback as well as valuable suggestions and ideas. Early Access is a great way for you to participate in IoE’s development, and together we strive to make this a game that you can play for a long time to come.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It’s hard to predict exactly how long it will take to incorporate player feedback and polish the game to its final state. It also depends on the amount of new content we decide to add and the number of community-generated ideas we choose to implement. We estimate it would be at least one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We’ll be adding new content and incorporating player feedback in the form of updates throughout the Early Access until the full release. What we have in plan includes:
  • New enemies and bosses
  • More dungeons
  • More mounts
  • New spells
  • New items
  • More crafting recipes
  • More harvesting resources
  • Improved performance and overall player experience

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of IoE already has a large open world to explore, and most of the core features and mechanics are implemented and working well. There are 7 playable races, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. You start on Crystal Island which is made up of around 100 smaller islands. Each smaller island could have a lair/dungeon with different monsters. We currently have 200+ monsters, 50+ spells that you acquire, more than 10 obtainable airships, and a variety of quests and dynamic events.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We haven’t decided for sure yet, but the price is likely going to increase for the final release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We welcome bug reports, player feedback, and suggestions in our Steam forums. We’ve been using our Discord server to communicate with our community since Kickstarter and will continue to do that. We will also be active on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, and Bilibili.”

About This Game

Early Access Disclaimer: Isles of Etherion launched into Early Access in order to invite constructive feedback and suggestions from the community to help us polish and mature the game to its final state, which it is not in right now. If Isles of Etherion looks interesting to you, but you're used to playing games at their finished state, please consider adding it to your Wishlist. If you would like to contribute to the polishing/improvement of IoE and see your constructive feedback and brilliant ideas help make it into a game that we could all be proud of, please consider joining us in Early Access!

Isles of Etherion is a 3rd-person ARPG with physics-based magic and fast-paced combat against hordes of enemies, set in a large fantasy open world with 100% destructible floating islands that you're free to explore. Enjoy a tremendously vertical exploration thanks to rudimentary flight and gliding systems with which you will reach the most inaccessible places. Face all kinds of creatures and warriors using different types of weapons and spells that you will find throughout your adventure. Wield powerful magic and combine them in different ways to achieve a variety of effects. Dig tunnels to find hidden treasures, commandeer enemy airships to add to your own fleet. Prepare yourself to face the Elemental Bosses and Demigods. Choose from 7 different races -- Human, Elf, Dwarf, Gnome, Fairy, Angel, and Demon, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Dynamically Destructible Voxel Environment

Explore a world in which everything, including terrain and structures, are dynamically destructible by players, monsters, or natural happenstances.

Airships for Combat and Transportation

Traverse the isles with your own airship, which could be acquired through purchase or battle.

Floating Islands with Dynamically Changing Seasons

In IoE, seasons change dynamically in front of your eyes. Like day/night cycles, seasons add another layer of complexity to gameplay dynamics and strategy.

Natural Disasters

Natural disasters, such as Earthquakes, Meteors, Volcano eruptions, Tornadoes, occur randomly throughout the Isles.

Voxel Combat and Spell Weaving

Voxel environment can be altered to your advantage during combat. IoE not only offers a variety of spells but the possibility to spell-weave as well!

Elementally Attuned Cause & Effect

Everything is elementally attuned and the Elements are at war with each other. Casting spells of a particular element will imbue the environment with that element, attracting monsters of the right elemental affinity. So your every action has the possibility of changing your subsequent gameplay experience!
