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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This was an excellent game, I remember playing a few years back and being frustrated at what seem like simple puzzles now. I suppose it's easier since I'm a tad bit smarter than I was back then.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really enjoy art like this, simple yet deep. it really had nothing complicated in gameplay, yet it showed a deeper meaning. this is what artistic games are about. the music was very fitting, simple and nice, although i wished for a few more artistic levels...
