Another Ludum Dare is over, number 23 to be precise, and my game is submitted. It’s called “Aether” and is a mix of an explorer platformer and missile command, where you have to run through a landscape to reach a mountain with a secret weapon, while at the same time fighting off alien spacecraft.

You can play it here: Play Aether. Have fun!
