congrats on Sony!!

Added - thanks sturmkoenig2k!
Definitely worth the buy, in my opinion. The sound direction was beautiful, the puzzles were interesting, and the way the story was told built such rich characters. Thanks to the devs for the wonderful experience!

Gameluster (9.5/10)

horror-movies.ca (4/5)
http://www.horror-movies.ca/2014/03/ether-one-game-review/
*By the end of the review they mentioned that the price of the game is 29.99$, whice if I recall correctly is 10$ too high...

gamrReview (7.8/10)
http://www.gamrreview.com/review/91164/ether-one-pc/

Vandal Online (7.5/10)
http://www.vandal.net/analisis/pc/ether-one/23819
or, according to Metacritic -
"No matter if you want a great story or a complex puzzle game, Ether One won't disappoint you. A great experience that, even though it has some issues, is worth experiencing."

Multiplayer.it (7.1/10)
http://multiplayer.it/recensioni/130266-ether-one-in-viaggio-tra-i-ricordi.html
or, according to Metacritic -
"Ether One is an interesting first-person adventure that explores human mind and the causes of dementia in a very original way. Technically surprising, considering the low-budget nature of the title, it deserves to be tried, even if the slow pace could distance action-oriented players."

DarkStation (3/5/5)

Eurogamer Italy (7/10)

Twinfinite (4/5)
http://www.twinfinite.net/blog/2014/03/28/ether-one-review-dream-within-dream/

and finally, SegmentNext with the lowest score I've seen given to this game, 6.5/10.
http://segmentnext.com/2014/05/12/ether-one-review-interesting-desert/

that is all I could find... It seems that the average score is ~8.162 out of 10, slightly above the current 8.0/10 metacritic score of the game.

I hope that this information helped, and keep up with the great work!

Oh wow! Thanks for going hunting for all of these yanivcogan. I missed a lot :) Another one just went up on Destructoid too - 9/10!!
Pete_Bottomley  [developer] Jun 2, 2014 @ 12:32am 
Thanks yanivcogan! Will get them added now.

I agree. This game is pretty good. I have to really think and reflect back to previous events and recall anything and everything that MIGHT have to do with whatever current puzzle I'm on. I'm still moving through it and making sure I fix every projector along the way on the adventure. As for storyline I'm impressed it doesn't give too much away as you go and so you end up thinking about what's going on here while trying to solve the puzzles which in turn makes it even harder to remember sometimes hahah XD. Anyways great game loving it so far!
Pete_Bottomley  [developer] Jun 17, 2014 @ 6:01am 
Thanks all! Keep them coming! :)
