Ether One, the indie exploration/puzzle title from White Paper Games that was released for PC in March 2014, is confirmed for a PlayStation 4 release, as studio co-founder Pete Bottomley reveals in a new PlayStation Blog post. More than just a straight copy, Bottomley notes that his small, Manchester, U.K.-based team is re-building the game from scratch in Unreal Engine 4 in order to fine-tune it for play on a gaming console.
Ether One puts players in the role of Restorer, a kind of future-world medical professional that is capable of entering the minds of mentally ill patients and restoring lost memories. It’s an angle inspired by experiences that members of the White Paper team have had in their own families with dementia. As Bottomley writes, “we hope a game like Ether One will help you relate to your own experiences.”
There’s no indication in the PS Blog post of when Ether One‘s PS4 release will happen, but it’s a safe bet that we won’t see it until sometime in 2015.
