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.

Nice to see you making something that isn't bloody disgusting for once.

Either way, my bias against you aside, this ain't half bad. It's a bit time consuming and extremely easy to get lost, but it's got that "weird-but-awesome-game" feeling.

Good game

Really well done game, the music and graphics were really good... just dont know if you can "win" on this game.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


The graphics were really good and it all looked great, but the music was not really fit with the game, it was way to depressive, and it was just alike midnas lament. This made the game a little... rip-offy.

Overrated game is overrated

fast, easy game, but well done


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


The game was probably pretty good, but after I played it once, it messed up on me and wouldn't load any more. I only got to one planet and hadn't really done anything.

BY THE WAY-- Aether is not an original name. It was the name of the planet you fight on in Metroid Prime 2. I just wanted to let you know, in case you're copyrighting this idea or anything.
