EthrA, an upcoming adventure RPG from indie studio StoneLab Studio, is finally available to wishlist on Steam after many years of hard work. While a release window hasn’t been announced, today’s Steam announcement promises to reveal “a proper trailer and videos” in the future:

EthrA was developed by a two-person team, making it an astonishing and inspiring passion project for indie studios. StoneLab Studio has been gradually releasing all of their major updates over the years, including steps like the cover artwork.

The team has been very positive, and always mentions the desire to improve with each update. StoneLab Studio gained a lot of attention after responding to the “graphics are finished first” comment that recently went viral:

EthrA’s new Steam product page drops a lot of key information, if you haven’t been following StoneLab Studio’s socials. Players will explore an open world filled with mystery and magic, following the roles of melee farm boy Bob and magic-caster Veil.

While many of these fantasy elements are pretty basic and familiar, the lore is still interesting enough, and it should be a surprise for most that EthrA’s Steam page mentions that it will support online co-op. Open world games emphasize exploration, which is always more fun with someone else, since you can sort of make up your fun in a free environment.

Updates for the game have been ramping up lately, so a full trailer should be coming up soon. Just three weeks ago, the devs uploaded a brief gameplay preview, which you can review on StoneLab Studio’s official YouTube channel here:

The gameplay has a certain top-down pixel charm to it, only with 3D environments. This game could easily mark a strong beginning for StoneLab Studio, who deserves a spotlight for their longtime effort.
