Each planet has a puzzle to solve, when you figure out what it is and solve it the planet will regain

color and the screen will flash.

- If you're stuck on a planet,take a break and come back to it later.


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.

spaced out

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

well um

ok well i tried and i cant figure out anything in this game
the gameplay is pretty awesome but as far as solving puzzles i cant figure them out at all
i guess what the little people say is sposed to help but i really have nothign

plus when i go to a planet i can never get off the planet and thats really annoying having to start over because im too dumb to figure out the puzzle

i think if i was a little smarter and more observant id love this game


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Stunning! An alternative non-linear adventure game. It's intuitive, progressive and fun! Characters make interesting suggestions about the real world too. :) The only thing I could wish to be improved is the characterization of the main character. Still, this game is fantastic.
