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.

UNIQue head hurts.... >> LOL. Yes, indeed, one of a kind. Always wondered what happened when you actually solved all the puzzles....but so far i only solved one. :[ WALKTHOUGH plawks. :] That'll be nice. BUT, other than that, that was pretty fun to swing around like spiderman. :] Very unique indeed. LOL using the Squids tongue as a robe. :T Nice job. I hope to see more of this from you. :D Good luck and i certainly had some fun with this game.

This is one of a kind. I have never seen another game like this and never thought that a flash game could be so emotional.

The artwork is great, and the music gives it an eerie, sad kind of feeling.

Its also incredibly fun to play.

It is just perfect in every way.

Wow amazing game. And very intuitive. I'm surprise there are people who don't get it. Maybe they are better off digging garbage for food as their life objective. Seriously how dumb can you are to blame the game after not being able to figure out what to do within 30 secs.
This was by far the most creative game and the coolest way to dig my imagination in all my life. Beats anything Wii throws at us :D

I can't get it to work for me

Beautiffuly done I must say btu I have no idea how to get off of the home planet. I get how to fire the tongue and I can build momentum but i don't go anywhere. I've circled teh planet and that makes the coulds disappear but I'm lost. I get to a height where the sky cahnges no night, and some arrow looking fly shaped things show up in pink and blue, I even tried ckicling on them. I even tried holding up once I reached the sky. Nothing!

PLease help! This game is in desperate need of a tutorial!
