Please wait up to 48 hours since the game is an approval queue for the new change:
UPDATE2: I've taken another crack at fixing the menu bug. I'm trying various things to try to fix it, but since I haven't actually reproduced it myself yet (I told you, it's a weird one), I can't confirm whether I've fixed it without feedback from you guys. Hopefully this new build fixes it!

UPDATE: I've just upload a new build! (August 24th). This build fixes some of the errors you guys were mentioning including the broken blizzard turret, and the broken menu (at least, it should be fixed! That was a weird one.) Thanks for the reports guys.

Alright, So we've gotten a LOT of feedback about MochiCoins, and we've decided to take them out of the game entirely. We hope that you will enjoy this new version.

This is a product of 8 months of juggling school work with production on the game for both the artist, Paul Wang, and the programmer Chris Fuller. I hope you guys like it! WE LOVE YOU ALL!

Aetherpunk is a steampunk, top-down shooter set in an alternate 1904, where aliens have invaded the Earth. Stepping into the shoes of an English country gentleman with a penchant for mad science, you have found your home to be the first landing zone of the alien invasion. Warned by prophetic dreams, you retreat to your fortified tool shed to defend yourself against the alien hordes.

The aliens themselves are equipped with weapons and implants powered by Luminiferous Aether, a fifth state of matter which can be used to violate the known laws of physics. Armed with a fully equipped laboratory and a trusty revolver, you must harvest the aether from the extraterrestrial attackers to create new and more powerful improvised weapons and hold off the alien onslaught as long as you can.

In addition to weapons, you may use a series of skills which carry over through multiple playthroughs. These include the ability to get more damage and range out of your weapons, faster reloads, more health and useful gadgets to boost your abilities.

Aim&Fire: Mouse
Reload: R

Couldn't stop playing!

This game is great. I'm going to rate it five starts everyday for about a week or two! I got to wave 17 on my first try, and I loved every second of it. I know what I'm saving on my flash game folder today :D.

Work of art

A very good game. The ending leaves something to be desired, since you are fated to die, but I do enjoy how you change the fate of Earth depending on how well you did. My personal favorites are when you discourage the invasion and when the aliens leave a monument to honor your battle.
It does get a tad easy once you have the best weapons, but thats not much to complain about.
Overall its a challenging game and a rather fun one at that, and Ill remember it for quite a long time to come.

Protip for people struggling:
Save your money until you can buy the Coil Pistol. After that, dont spend any cash at all until you have 2k. At that point, purchase the Impaler turret. Its a very useful turret and I personally like it better than the Hellburner. After buying the turret, save up another 2k for the Hedgehog Gun. Your accuracy drops considerably, but the damage output is worth it. Using a combination of your Hedgehog Gun and Impaler, a final 4k should be amassed for the Hellstorm Gun. At this point, youre pretty much unstoppable and can spend the cash you get and anything you want to.

Can't get past the main menu

I'm running firefox on ubuntu and this game has never worked for me, clicking everything except the link to more games accomplishes nothing, unfortunate, as I would very much like to play this game.
