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.

I found this game a long time ago and it was fun when I played then but now it's not quite as easy to maneuver. Before when I played it I had a mouse so it was easy to maneuver and now I'm playing it with a touch keypad mouse and it's a lot harder with using that and using the WASD keys at the same time.

Not complaining but just saying, anyways love this game!! The music goes really well and doesn't get annoying and I love how the colors fade into each other depending on where you are in the game.
