Aether is a new collaborative effort by Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel, where players get to see the a small part of the universe through the eyes of a young dreamer as he ventures into space on the back of his newfound friend.
The game involves using your pet's tongue to grab onto clouds or asteroids, swinging from one planet to another in search of new locations to explore. Restore the color back to each planet by solving the puzzles unique to every location before returning to Earth to complete your journey.
A standalone version is available for download as well, which should work faster on older computers.
