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.

As people have said this game has a lot of heart. Edmund brings a lot of thought and emotion to his games and it's incredible. This game really is a piece of art and I loved it completely save for the slight dizziness it caused :)
