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.

- 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.

Feels magical and nostalgic,music reminds me of a song I cant remember

I honestly loved playing this game.. It's really calm and fun to swing around (which I found kinda hard to control at first but once I got used to it it was great). Had lots of trouble on the small snow planet lol, but other than that the puzzles were really good.

how this game is so fun, it was a bit hard at first but after i got used to the controls, it was really enjoyable. i love the game play and the art :)

Here because of the Vsauce video on "How many 5 year olds can you take in a fight", but it's a good game

I remember playing this years ago all the time just flinging myself through space loved it then and still do.
