Investigative thriller The Occupation breaks its story October 9th

First-person thriller The Occupation (from Ether One devs White Paper Games) looks like an exciting spin on the immersive sim genre. Playing as a journalist in 1987 England, there's sneaking, talking and even a bit of Deus Ex-ish crawling through vents to be done in search of the truth behind a (presumed) terrorist bombing. Unlike most games, the entire story plays out over the course…

The Occupation looks an interesting first-person reporter

The makers of Ether One have announced The Occupation [official site], a fascinating-sounding new first-person investigate-o-adventure game. Set in the wake of a terrorist attack in '80s Britain, it'll send a reporter to investigate an impending oppressive government act, poking into the story as events unfold in four hours of real time. Quite how it all works is a little unclear for now but I'm…

Deep Breaths: Here’s An Ether One Launch Trailer

Oh, those sneaky monkeys. First-person adventure Ether One hasn't quite launched on its journey to the centre of a dementia damaged mind, but they've released a launch trailer anyway. That's a good week before the game is out. I'll allow this: they've just added the review version to my Steam account, so it's technically out there, and I am the most important person in the…

Head Games: Ether One Only One Month Away

If you've forgotten - perhaps because some malevolent soul infiltrated your mind and mixed up all the wiring - Ether One is an extremely promising-looking first-person adventure about spelunking dreamy brain caves in hopes of unraveling a giant techno-countryside mystery. It looks gorgeous, and its thin film of cyberpunk static sizzles with intrigue. Think Myst meets To The Moon, and you're basically there. It's finally…

Reality Isn’t Real: Ether One’s Bonkers ‘Restorer’ Trailer

I've been intrigued by Ether One since time immemorial. However, if someone were to leap in my head, run around its ominously dark docks that might be some kind of metaphor, and eventually put together all the pieces, they'd find that it's been a few months. And also that I have a really bad memory. The latest trailer for the brain-bending, reality-warping first-person puzzler continues…

Ether Devs On Mature Game Stories, Taking Risks

I quite like leaping into people's heads and spelunking the deepest reaches of their brain caves. And in the game. Or games, rather, seeing as Psychonauts and To The Moon are two of my absolute favorites. So when Ether emerged from the woodwork promising mind-opening mind-exploration with a more personal, intimate focus, I sloppily salivated in the most attractive of fashions. And then I asked…

Restoration Man: Ether

Ether is an independently developed first-person puzzler with a psychological mystery at its core. We saw the first video footage of its Cornish delights back in July and should be able to uncover more details soon. The plot involves mental illness and 'ethereal projection', an ability whereby men and women known as restorers can enter their clients' minds and attempt to repair them. The game…

To Serve And Project: Ether

Ether is an indie adventure game set in an alternate history where "mental disease and illness can be cured by individuals who possess the unique gift of ethereal projection". Sounding a little like a first-person To The Moon, the game plants the player character in the mind of a client, traps him, and asks him to explore, solve puzzles and delve into memories. The trailer…
