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 have no idea if i'm doing anything right or not.. i think i just killed all of these moons orbiting a particular planet

This game is amazing, but you should have seperate songs for each individual planet, but that's not to say this isn't amazing as is. Also, we should have a pause menu instead of just a pause so we can chart our progress through the game.

However, i enjoy the freedom this game gives. The graphics, physics, and artstyles were all amazing, and sometimes creepy such as when we're plummiting to a planet and there's this giant and mostly creepy face in the back ground.
