Inspired by the true events of my own father's life and death. After his sudden death, a spirit must relive traumatic memories, avoid hounds from hell, traverse challenging puzzles, and guide other spirits to the afterlife.

Hey guys! Some awesome news for you:
1. Thanks to Wii U supporting HTML5 and Game Maker exporting to HTML 5, we should be able to get Ethereal on Wii U fairly easily! This means our planned platforms are now: PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, PS4, PSVITA, and Wii U! Not sure if we'll be able to get on 3DS yet. Maybe in the future.
2. Our kickstarter will launch on June 3rd!

In other news, I completely finished the cabin area. Here's the dead body on the cabin floor:

That's the main character of my game dead on the floor. Of course, the game is based on my own father's life and death so that's basically my own father's dead body in pixel art. Never thought I'd ever ask an artist to draw that!

Since the cabin area is complete, I decided to celebrate by making some wallpapers for you guys!

I was also designing and coding the "Credits" part of the game. I thought it looked neat so I made a wallpaper from it as well!
