views you, become a hero!

Each planet has a puzzle to solve, when you figure out what it is and solve it the planet will regain

color and the screen will flash.

Tips:
- Use the W and S keys to spin all the way around in a circle (A-S-D-W-A).
- Hit P or Esc to pause.
- If you're stuck on a planet,take a break and come back to it later.

Aether is an "Art Game" about personal childhood feelings and experiences. Please keep and open mind

when playing, relax and enjoy the game.

If the game is running slow for you, there is a link on the title screen to a standalone PC/Mac version

that will run a lot faster on slower computers.

What can i say...
I just saw The Indie Game The Movie cuz i already played Super Meat Boy (Braid i finished it before i saw it and i saved FEZ for the next week), also got The Bindind of Isaac for another time. When i was 11 or 12 (Cannot remember well), all my internet life was on Newgrounds. Certain games, simple and heart-touching games, caught my attention, my feelings and my thoughs in a way that i didn't knew to explain. I still remember rushing for doing my homework because of it. But no other game (Except maybe Majora's Mask) made me felt like it did Aether, i played literally once or twice a week since i played it for the first time. The time passed and i didn't knew who was the creator of it, (I thought that in Newgrounds there was just only one artist for all the games, which i loved the style) until i saw this movie and my heart stopped and exploded when i saw Edmund games and explaining how he got the idea of Aether... When i heard it, i paused the movie and played Aether again... I just cannot express my real thoughts with these words...
The game itself it's wonderful, the music it's excellent, the graphics, just cannot rate it 10 of 10 because it's too low; the story it's warm and really simple, but it means so much... The gameplay it's well made, it purpose was fullfilled, make an epic journey to other worlds and see for anyone like you. The game at least made it for me.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING EDMUND (YOUR TEAM ALSO), KEEP EXPRESSING YOUR IDEAS, EITHER THE MOST OF PEOPLE LIKE THEM OR NOT, BECAUSE IT'S GREAT.
