2015 IGF Winner: Excellence in Audio

Ephemerid is a rock fairy tale about a paper mayfly.

Lean back, relax and enjoy it as a whole, as you would a favorite album. Ephemerid is part rhythm game, part point-and-click adventure, and part rock opera.

  • Ephemerid’s beating heart is its original soundtrack, rock guitar with a classical flair.
  • The world of Ephemerid is faithfully handcrafted out of cut paper, glass, and paint.
  • Each setting introduces intuitive challenges which play in harmony with the music.

Ephemerid: A Musical Adventure reviews and comments

After just under three-quarters of An hour, so play 1x through, I think I can already say something about this Game. It's a very recommended Game in my Opinion. :) In the Beginning I didn't quite understand what was going on, but after the first Task was done, you are quickly in the Game. It has, as I find with Headphones a beautiful Atmo And I also like the Music very much. It fits the respective Situations and you can put yourself more into the Game. You have to have a pretty fast Hand or Mouse in some Places to catch everything. I Haven't managed to do anything before. xD The Graphics are designed to be fairly simple, but they think they are really nicely done. To switch off, relax and enjoy beautiful Music, this Game is just the thing. For 1.50 in the Sale definitely worth his Money. Of course, it Doesn't need much Memory, which is why it is also worth not deleting after playing. For the small Tension of everyday Life. :D

This game is a little gem. An adventure, the time of a big hour and a half, sold for pennies. I say yes! Its graphics are quite astonishing, a style that is scattered a bit (between comics, abstract painting, Naif art... and what else do I know?). The music is really nice, with a pretty mixed style too. Between the piano and the metal, my only regret is the side a little too synthetic for my taste. The gameplay goes no further than a series of clicks in the right places. At first I felt like I was being taken for a moron, but after a few seconds we quickly realize that we have to make a small effort of concentration despite everything. If you want to enjoy the effects and other animations, you have to be particularly keen (or I may have spent the age of these games, it's possible too!:)). In short, a story that I would describe as poetic, almost sensual. For those who are easily transported by music and a nice drawing, go! For the septics, the best is to try. I hasten to order the soundtrack in DLC!

Ephemerid is a good game. Play music and rhythm, without the possibility of losing, so without really challenge (unless you want to complete all the challenges). So you play a Dragonfly (? Or a butterfly... Finally a flying insect....) throughout his life. All in rhythm games. I say no more so that you can enjoy the adventure. It is a poetic and beautiful game, with cute and magical graphics and a great musical atmosphere. The +: _ the musical and graphic ambiance. _poetry. _ the challenge if you want to complete the whole game (without it being unfeasible). So a good ratio between challenge and fun. _intuitive play phases. The-: _ too short (to finish the game a first time (without succeeding all the challenges), it took me less than 1 hour). _ a few sets of rhythms that repeat (pity on such a short game). In conclusion, it is a good game, which even if it is too short allows to relax in this world of Brutes while listening to very good music. The story is cute, the gameplay intuitive. I recommend it, even if given the duration, it is better to buy it on sale.
