Thanks Newgrounds!

Posted by Bluebaby - October 13th, 2008


Just wanted to say thanks to newgrounds for voting Aether as the top game for last month and helping us each the million plays mark last night! Its not the most accessible game in the world, but with your support we have not only been able to get a ton of press from word of mouth, but are also currently talking to Nintendo about taking the full version of Aether to wiiware late next year.

If you havent played it yet heres a link:

Again thanks for playing, it was a very fun game to make and im glad our vision came through.

Fine job with the critics!

I wish I understood Aether. Then I'd probably love it.

Aether is a great game!

By the way I have tons of fun playing sumo on Gish with my friends =P.

I wish someone would review my stuff :(

I sometimes understood Aether, sometimes didn't. I couldn't piece it all together to form one big picture.
The parts that did make sense though- Very much DID make sense.

Holy Shit!
Aether on WiiWare!!!
That is win!

I think I like meatboy better mainly cause I want to get with Band-Aid girl.

Congrats nonetheless

awesome, ill be sure to pick it up if it gets on wiiware..

i liked meat boy more....

I like the game, like all others that you make. "playing with physics".

But, a full verion, for a console? The game will actualy become bigger with advetures and such? And how long have you actualy been working on this game?

I was really impressed when I was first playing Aether, the mysterious and dreamy music really got you into the whole world and it made me wanna go and explore it all and it's weird inhabitats

Would be awesome to see a full version of it. Great job

YAY! at last, a reason to not sell my wii!

no, thank you bluebaby.

Lol @ My screen is 640x480 so I voted 0.
