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.

ASDW = Move and jump.
Mouse click = Shoot out your grapple tongue to grab onto clouds, swing around to throw yourself into

space, release the mouse to let go. Keep in mind with enough momentum you can swing all the way around.

Very Interesting...

Music: A fantastical tune that fits the dreamy game world
Graphics: Soft and Sweet (a bit to much white, IMO.)
Gameplay: Out of this world ( -_^)
Story: As others have said, it's quite thought provoking.

Artistic game

Was fun, but also artistic and told an amusing story. Usually games are done with entertainment in mind, and those that tried to be artistic often ended up not being fun, this one was able to balance the art with the fun factor, it managed to capture the interest of this gamer and in the process told a story and even provoked some thought and musing along the way.

Pure Epicness

The music is awesome, the gameplay is unique and fun. The storyline is one of it's kind :)

This is probably one of the best flash games I have ever played. Please make a sequel to this.

Keep up the awesome work.

in response to the walkthrough below

You don't have to swing out the mouth, you can just swing out of the planet anywhere and you will pop out.
