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.

Absolutely fantastic.

Arguably one of the greatest games on Newgrounds. Art games are always fantastic, and this is just.. wow. The graphics are beautiful, the gameplay is beautiful, the story is beautiful.
I'm looking forward to the sequal more than the birth of my first born.
