Unsure of your own identity or why you have been sent to restore this particular person your goal is to explore a physical representation of her memories and find the broken sources of each one. Through this you will build up an understanding of who you are, why you are here and most importantly what your relationship is with Jean. Ether One is the first half in a journey of haunting relationships and choices that are explored through carefully crafted game play and narrative in order to deliver an adventure game full of interaction and puzzles that will immerse you in the Ether world and story.
