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.
