AetherStory is made using a custom engine built on top of the amazing Starling Framework and Adobe AIR. The server is created using TypeScript and Node.js. We also are proud users of the Tiled map editor.

AetherStory is being created by Phanxgames, an Indie Game Dev Studio. All programming and artwork is done by Henry Price. The story and mapping are being lead by Mark Hudd. And game's original sound track is composed by Gregg Rossetti. Additional team members may be found on the Phanxgames website.

We plan to release the game through our website giving us full control to update the game. The game will be playable on Windows desktops, Mac OS desktops, and eventually on Android phones/tablets.

In the future we plan to release the game on Steam, and other market places that welcome us.

We currently are in a closed Alpha. The gate to entry is to simply donate at least $20. Doing so you not only are granted access to the Closed Alpha, but you also are pre-ordering the game, and you will have access to all future alpha and beta tests. Thank you for your support!

We have attempted to make guesses on this in the past and we have always failed. Its extremely difficult to estimate a project of this scope with such a small team working on it.

But what I will tell you: we plan on releasing a large patch every month adding new functionality and features. And slowly but surely we will get there!
