Key of Ethios is a 3D action-adventure game in the vein of modern Zelda titles. In it you play as a party of heroes, each with their own unique abilities that allow them to traverse the world and overcome a wide array of obstacles and enemies. The game focuses on this group as they face off with an organization that's dead set on capturing one of their companions.

A bit of a rough sketch, but Ethios consists of two segments; an enormous world tree whose branches hold up a good amount of the worlds landmasses, big and small. It controls the forces of chaos and form and is represented by the Archdeity, the Wysteria King.

Up top is an enormous mechanical clock-type thing that contains the celestial bodies and makes day and night happen, as well as making the rest of the landmasses stay afloat. It controls the forces of time and space and is represented by an as-of-yet unnamed Archdeity.

These two work together to maintain the world, as well as holding back the unfathomable void of nothing that is the Fell, which is also where the same-named Fell creatures come from, but more on that later.

A really early demo of the game to show off how it plays and looks! It's likely that there are a few bugs remaining, but I did manage to quash a good...

The former; you can wander about as you please between traveling to 'mission' areas, like modern Zelda games.

It's mostly just me. The only thing I can't do is the sound and music, so I've got some help with that; Sam English is going to compose, and Hyperduck Soundworks is going to handle the sound effects.

Ok this was unexpected ...only one guy?
Wow, my respect.

The textures look sometimes a tiny bit too low-res, but to think one guy did all this AND is coding the whole stuff is impressive.

I wish I could do the same for my project ...but coding is for me completely incomprehensible.

Thank'eh! Coding was rather difficult for me too, at first; I'd decided that I'd just start, and learn along the way using Unity's scripting resource. It's worked out pretty well thus far, methinks.
