Part of the reason why I enjoy indie gaming so much is because of the kinds of subjects that their stories can explore, as well as the worlds that they can create. Which is why the familiar, yet ominous world of Ether caught my eye once I saw this trailer.
Developed by White Paper Games, Ether looks to follow in the footsteps of classic first-person adventure/puzzle titles such as Myst, with a dash of Amnesia: The Dark Decent for added tension. In Ether, the player will assume control of a "restorer," an individual who can enter the minds of others in order to fix broken memories. Unfortunately for you, however, you have become lost in your latest client's mind.
From what they've shown us so far, the art style of Ether is just gorgeous. The rough, dark pen lines on top of the hand-painted textures give the game a surreal quality. Ether will be releasing for both PC and Mac mid-2013, so keep your eyes peeled.

It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.Dreamweaver There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.
