Locations theme

A non-place somewhere (e.g. between dimensions). Often characterized by lack of any planet or other large firmament, but contains small islands, or even artificial structures, floating in a starry ocean without sun or moon.


Alternate name: Aether

The first video game about Ether was released on November 27, 1993.

Capcom, Blizzard and Valve has published most of these games

May give impression of something floating freely in space, but there's inexplicably breathable air and there may not actually be any planets out there (or even stars as science sees them), there's proper gravity (though may not match earth's) and so forth.

Often people traveling through dimensions end up in a place like this at some point in their travels as if it was a half-way station, the place between.
