by Rainier on June 11, 2019 @ 1:59 p.m. PDT

Etherborn is a gravity-shifting puzzle-platformer where you play as a voiceless body in search of your meaning as you explore dreamlike, Escheresque levels.

Altered Matter’s Etherborn is a story of self-discovery, encouraging players to forge their own paths and uncover the meaning of their own existence. In Etherborn, players navigate their way through an expansive landscape of shifting gravity and mind-bending perspectives, guided forward by a mysterious and ethereal voice.

Etherborn is an elegant leap in the 3D puzzle platformer genre that lets players explore surreal, dreamlike levels with a unique spin on gravity that anchors them to any surface they touch.

You play as a voiceless being, born into a mysterious world where a bodiless voice calls to you, patiently drawing you to its location. You must take this blank soul on a journey to find its own conscience. Widen the limits of your perception and find the paths that are hiding before your eyes.

Traversal is built around your unique sense of gravity that anchors you to any surface you touch.  Moving through the world becomes the puzzle in itself as each level acts as a sort of environmental Rubik’s Cube that you need to explore, manipulate and shift perspective on in order to decipher the way forward.

  • Mind bending gravity-shifting-puzzle-platforming
  • Perspective, exploration and navigation-based challenges using gravity manipulation
  • Surreal, atmospheric 3D levels inspired by 20th-21st century artists
