color and the screen will flash.

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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Good work.

The technical realization and the gameplay are done perfectly. The only thing i can suggest, is to make the graphics a bit darker. Especially on the planets they look a bit washed and are strenuous to look at.
