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.

I got so frustrated playing this game, just swinging about forever and not getting anywhere. and the music just got so annoying after a while. it could be that I'm just not very good at these kind of games, but this one just pissed me off big time. but hey, the graphics were great and a really beautiful game. Nice job..

Neat, new concept, but could use a little more instructions - It's hard to figure out exactly what to do for each puzzle.

Pretty interesting and relaxing though, the visual style is very clean and relaxed looking and the idea itself is original and very good.

I'm sorry but I can't give you credits for the playabilité. The tongue is unreactive and controling the hero is really hard, especially on a macbook pad, with an azerty keyboard. You should have at least let us choose the controls.

Another thing is that I don't understand why in space th tongue always target backward or upward instead of targeting in the direction one's aiming at.

But anyway, I really like Art Game, I like the univers and concept, and it has great potential. Ijust regreat the playability.
