Description

Your name is Ethan, a rat that got touched by meteorites giving him the power of telekinesis: freezing time and moving objects around him. He is now looking for more meteorites that fell in his surroundings to get more power and his revenge against his neighbor who destroyed Ethan’s house! Freeze time and manipulate the world with endless possibilities: build the solution YOU want where nothing is scripted and levels can be solved in multiple ways. With its unique blend of precision platforming and time-stopping physics-based puzzles, you may die repeatedly and feel like a hero when you succeed!

History

We started Ethan: Meteor Hunter as employees at Hydravision and we had been working on it for about 4 months when the studio closed its doors. We decided then to bring the team back together, buy the IP and our computers to start our own independant studio. We were also able to buy the homemade engine used for this game have been working for 8 months on it as Seaven Studio.

About Seaven Studio

Boilerplate
Seaven Studio is a small indie french based studio of 6 people working on PC and consoles. We self-published Ethan: Meteor Hunter on PS3/Vita/Steam (and survived its bad sales), now working on Ludum Dare 23's jam winner: Inside My Radio! We try to engage and get feedback from gamers as much as possible, but it ain't easy every day!
