Along the lines of Dear Esther and Gone Home, Ether One is a narrative-driven puzzle/adventure game that puts you in the minds of other people – literally.
As the trailer shows, your job is to enter and explore the memories of patients, with the goal of restoring these damaged minds. Particularly interesting is that the game is apparently divided into two paths with different ways to play and explore the world, depending on what you prefer to get out of the experience.
In a more traditional adventure game setting, you can choose to complete puzzles in order to repair patients’ memories. Or there’s the option to just stroll down a narrative-exploration path, and let the story unfold at your own pace without any puzzles to pad it out.
Ether One is due March 25 on PC.
