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.

Damn, swinging around in space and exploring different planets could be a game all on its own. The fact that you added puzzles just put icing on the cake. Very atmospheric, very ambient, very cool.

The reason I'm giving it a 7 instead of a 10 is because although I understand that you were trying to create a very distinct artistic style, I feel like you've gone overboard and the result is the contrast of lights and darks is so skewed I couldn't tell what I was looking at half the time. only a minor complaint
