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.

WOW, Really nice

This is a great game. It's very relaxing and very very original.

The games graphics are really well done and the music is easy to listen to.

I just wish that planets that have been solved did not show up as destinations on the star field. I seemed to keep going back and forth between planets that I had alread done. Yes, the colors are different, but they are so muted and close in hue that it was sometimes hard to differenciate.

I still gabe it 5/5 10/10 though. It was nice to see something new and fresh

Reminds me of Flyguy.

I loved the exploration element to it, it really kept me edging on my seat to see the theme of the planet I'd just broke through the atmosphere of. It had a very orginial storyline, and was full of interesting things to see.
It is quite the experience. It has a simple art style, to reflect the mind of a child, and has an almost psychedelic cast of planets, most of which have faces.
I liked the control system a lot too. It was fun to plummet through purgatory using nothing but the tounge of a balloon like creature.

An utterly mesmirizing experience.
