Thanks so much for the feature! :)

@Drazile We were inspired in many games, including Ditto. But the main difference between both games, and something I haven't seen in any other game (I am not saying it doesn't exist) is the disconnect mechanic and also the passing of objects through holes (this could be compared to portal). So yes, it looks like Ditto, but in a very superficial way.

Thx 7even. Corrected the art credits.

Really good work! I think it will be a cool game!

Gameplay-wise, Etherial looks like VVVVVV, and Bonds looks like Nitrome's Ditto.

Murder is being made by Peter Moorhead lol (that was his halloween alias)

Pixel art is by me (characters) and midio (backgrounds)

I'm now addicted to japanese bug fights. Gotta watch all of them!

I read the "Etherial: Kickstarter" and I found there you can buy "Putty Squad", an Amiga game released recently!

Well I found a place where you can download it freely and legally: LINK
