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.

Couple of little annoyances

Don't get me wrong, absolutely wonderful game, the graphics, music and concept are great. and I liked the way you brought colour to the world when you completed the task, whle a tutorial would spoil the mood of the game, I found it frustrating rather than exciting to explore the worlds, the controls for me were just not very precise. May be it's the gravity engine, to build up a good swing is annoying because of all the slack that happens in the tongue.
But those niggles aside, loved the story, the rhyming of everything, the cute and soft graphics, even the fact that you can download a copy, big brownie points for that!
Would love to see you guys create another game like this, maybe not a sequel, that'd spoil this game, but maybe a spin off!?

Nice game.

Nice artwork. Nice puzzles.

Here are some small tips.

Green planet: Swing around in circles on the small planets with faces which grow a bum when you swing onto them. There are 4

Blue planet: Duck under the water and eat.

Pink planet: Jump in the mouth and swing on the crystals

Yellow planet: Swing up and hop up on top of the moons that say things. There are 4

Earth: Not too sure, I did this one last. All I did was fall back to it and hit into something.

I hope this helps to those who have trouble.
