Key of Ethios


The Project:

Key of Ethios is an Action-Adventure game that takes inspiration from games like The Legend of Zelda, Okami, and The Lost Vikings. It focuses on Ellie, Gil, and Van: of a party of companions, each with their own unique abilities that allow them to traverse the world and overcome a wide array of obstacles and enemies.

The game begins with our heroes discovering a mysterious young girl resting within the ancient Wysteria- A vast forest said to be as old as the world itself. They then become the target of an organization knows as the Court, who is dead set on capturing the girl for unknown purposes.

Gameplay focuses on combat, exploration, and puzzle-solving, all of which center around controlling the party members either as a group or individually. You must utilize each heroes’ abilities in tandem with one another to defeat cunning enemies or traverse perilous obstacles.

The Team:

I’m Keith Farnsworth and I’m currently going solo on developing this project. I’ve always been interested in making games, and figuring that application is the best way to learn, one day I simply decided to start. I’ve since spent the majority of my free time planning out Key of Ethios and honing my skills to their current state.
