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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Absolutely stellar. I saw way back in '08 and I just couldn't wrap my head around it. A little over 4 years later, I sit down, see this, and experience it in 20 minutes. In a way, the years allowed my imagination to expand and allowed me to appreciate this gem of a game. I sure as hell enjoyed Time Fcuk with all its wit but this creation was far more philosophical and thought provoking. Very well done.

I might just be my computer, but it takes forever to load. 5 minutes and it is STILL at 0%. I give five stars for the smiley face. : )
