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.

Big error

You'd get 10 but you made a huge error which is that music doesn't stop playing when you enter or leave a plant, you get songs playing over each other.,
