About the Game:

Discover who you are

You wake up in a strange, dark Construct, without any memory of who you are. Soon, through the intercom, the voice of Doctor Cornell calls you “The Aethernaut”.

Explore a series of rooms and solve the experiments as you discover who you are. Will you be able to escape before it’s too late?

Philosophical and intriguing

Choose how the story unfolds based on your answers to Cornell’s philosophical questions, as he seeks to better understand your nature and personality.

Learn more about your past and your connection to this strange world, and understand why you are the only one who can survive the deadly aether. But beware, as the doctor may not be who he claims to be…

Can you trust the voice?

As you navigate the dark experiments, new voices manifest themselves, warning you not to trust Cornell and pleading to be saved from his tyranny. But in this world, the reality is not so simple.

As the truth is revealed, who will you choose to trust? The choice is in your hands.

6 possible endings

With 6 possible endings, depending on your answers and how you solve the puzzles, Aethernaut will unlock the depths of your soul and you will discover your true self.

You can play it here!
