Venture into space! Exploring distant planets and solving their puzzles to change the way the world

views you, become a hero!

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.

- Use the W and S keys to spin all the way around in a circle (A-S-D-W-A).
- Hit P or Esc to pause.
- 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.

".......And the Worlds of Tomorrow....."

I mean wow, that was a gamn. It really reminds me of a old Mac game call Cosmic Osmo and the Worlds of Tomorrow(which will soon be ported to Win).
The only thing I could think of would be: 1) the physics. Really as smooth as they can get for a first round but could be a little cleaner like the return for a swing, if you have any gravity around could suck up the slack on the tounge and make the next swing actually have momentum. 2) little bit harder of puzzles that actually solve problems on the worlds. Finally, 3) You could throw secrets in there like little moons or stars that you could visits for laughs or bonuses........ I lied 4) new abilities or different things you can do with the one you have.
Good game though and I would like to see another one.

Great game

sweet graphics, nice music and an over all good experience. The only negative thing i can say is that it wasn't to intuitive, both in how you are supposed to start getting off the planets and in what you are supposed to do when you get off them.

i finished it though, so it wasn't to hard ^^
