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.

Superb in every single way.

Absolutely a great and touching game, together with the video about Edmund McMillen's life-story, this was a very unique experience. Although the game was rather short, it's still one of the better games I have played.
On a more down to earth note, the coding and art on this game were amazing, T. Glaiel did a extremely well job on coding this, I have no idea how he did it, but it left a great impression on me. The art style is a lot like Gonzo's, but with a refreshing, brighter taint.
In my opinion this is better than all your other games, which I all own and have played and I am very much hoping that it will be continued as it has said at the ending.

Everything's nyan-nyan

The game really belongs to a very rare type. It doesn't only consist some puzzles to solve but also some nice ideas and thoughts (e.g. why not think that the one who dreams a lot can change everything if he/she is eager to).
Although the graphics don't seem to be very complicated, the game has a very cute appearance.
The music is also very pleasing, and, what's more important, calming.
What concerns the game's puzzles, they're not too hard nor too easy. Though, they sometimes seem to be very alike.
All in all the game is well-crafted and enjoyable.

Cute, creative, charming, piece of art.

Green fix: Swing around the polluting moons
Blue fix: Eat all the fish inside planet
Yellow fix: Bring the nearby moons down into the planet
Red fix: Swing around the crystals inside and make a full octet.

Love this game, really :)
