color and the screen will flash.

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.

The best artistic indy game of all time. The music is not just good, it is haunting. I am completely appalled that anyone would WANT to mute it as is the commenter below.

Like nothing else Edmund McMillan made. Or anyone else for that matter. Sure, he's got some ok puzzle games, but this is more than that. I am disappointed to look back and see that this came in 2008, time fcuk the next year, and the only things since are meat boy and the binding of isaac, neither of which I am a fan of. Too bad it wasn't 1 monolith of programming wonder every year.

I admit, when I'm stressed this is the game I always turn to. It's beautiful, the idea is great and the story just! ah I love it so much! the music is great, the controls aren't too complex, and the puzzles make you think but not too hard~!

As for a sequel, when do you think that will be made? Because I'd love to see more of this! It's absolutely fantastic!
