Description

Etherborn is a 3D exploration platforming game set in a strange and exotic world, where the laws of physics behave in a completely different way than in ours. The main character experiences gravity in a direction perpendicular to the surface she’s standing on, allowing endless exploration possibilities in beautifully crafted environments.

The game offers a series of navigation-based puzzles; players will have to explore their surroundings in order to figure out each one’s underlying logic, find the correct route to advance and unlock it.

A voiceless being has just been born in a world where a bodiless voice awaits her arrival. Wandering through a colossal tree with multiple trunks, she will have to understand the meaning of what she sees in order to grow and reach her voice.
