We're on kickstarter as well!
Description
Release date: Late 2015
You can support us on kickstarter as well! http://www.etherealgame.net/kickstarter

Based on the true story of my own father's life and death. After his sudden death, a spirit must relive traumatic memories, avoid hellhounds and traverse challenging puzzles.

Ethereal follows the protagonist through seven of his most traumatic memories. Hidden throughout each are mementos that help him let go of the past and move on. Through the memories, you learn about his life, seeing his worst days and helping him remember the good. The game has multiple endings based on the player's level of completion at the end of the 7th and final memory.

Other spirits wander his memories, confused, angry or sad, searching for their place in the afterlife. Hellhounds wander the memories waiting for the right moment to grab the player and drag him down to hell.

Throughout the game's worlds, the player must solve puzzles using his seven abilities and the help of other spirits. Along the way, he must avoid hell hounds lest he be dragged through a hell void! At the start of each world a new ability is added to your arsenal. As your arsenal grows, the puzzles adapt. This will keep the game feeling fresh and challenging without frustrating the player by becoming overly complex.

In Ethereal, there is no jumping. Instead, the game's main ability is Flipping. The player reverses gravity only for himself, allowing him to traverse puzzles. Other abilities include: Miasma (becoming a fog-like form), Haunting, Possessing animals, Guiding (Leading other spirits and using their asisstance), and more to be revealed later.
