Ethereal is a multiplayer medieval combat game that explores what is FUN about a realistic simulation of medieval combat through a video game. Project Ethereal began as a Graduate Thesis Project. Much of our game design came from documenting the culture of modern medieval combat reenactments. A Beta version of Ethereal was published in Spring 2013.

I like to be really involved in everything that I do – the more I can get my hands dirty the better. My experience in learning live medieval combat with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) was a reference point in designing the Ethereal game mechanics for a visceral, gritty medieval combat. The SCA practices full contact martial sport – and it was such a thrill.

It was hot and humid from July through September as I wore 40 pounds of homemade armor, a shieldcam, and carried a rattan sword to learn what it felt like to be a medieval combat warrior.
