6 min readJan 30, 2024


Aether Games: Pioneering a New Era in Gaming and Entertainment

In the ever-evolving world of gaming, Aether Games stands out as a transmedia development studio, committed to crafting immersive experiences for both web2 and web3 audiences. With a vision to establish a comprehensive gaming franchise, Aether Games masterfully blends traditional gaming dynamics with blockchain technology and rich narrative content across various media.

Aether World: A Universe for Interoperable Assets

At the heart of Aether Games’ innovation is the use of NFTs, representing an array of in-game assets including creatures, adventurers, cards, crafting materials, consumables, and bloodline glyphs. These NFTs, securely stored on the blockchain, confer true ownership to the players, allowing them to earn, trade, and utilize these assets across various games within the Aether Games universe.

Aether: Trading Card Game — Redefining Collectible Experiences

A prime offering from Aether Games is the Aether: Trading Card Game. Leveraging blockchain technology, it is multi-chain but runs primarily on the Polygon network, supporting secure ownership and tradability of cards, tournament participation, and exclusive rewards.

Aether Saga — Venturing into Dark Fantasy

Aether Saga, a CGI 3D dark fantasy series, complements the gaming experience. It narrates the adventures of Holda and Einar, immersing viewers in the Aether world and demonstrating Aether Games’ commitment to narrative depth.

The Aether Games Team: Blending Diverse Expertise

The Aether Games team is a blend of seasoned professionals from game development, esports, entertainment, and CGI industries. Their collective portfolio includes work on high-profile titles like God of War, Far Cry 6, and Baldur’s Gate 3, as well as innovative Netflix shows like Love, Death & Robots. This diverse background positions Aether Games to craft a high-quality franchise.

AEG Token: The Bridge Between Web2 and Web3 Gaming

The AEG token is integral to the Aether universe, acting as a universal medium of exchange. This ERC-20 token, based on the Polygon network, serves multiple functions:

  • Crafting Material: Used to create customized in-game items. In Aether: Trading Card Game, these are used to craft plain cards into NFTs.
  • Staking in Aether Vault: Allows for token storage and management. Storing AEG tokens in the Vault provides rewards in the form of additional tokens, or exclusive NFTs.
  • Nesting within Heirlooms: Enhances heirlooms, a cross-game dynamic NFTs that grow over time, providing various passive benefits.
  • Payment Solution: Facilitates secure transactions within the Aether marketplace.

The AEG token not only connects traditional and web3 gaming but also allows for seamless conversion between traditional and web3 gaming assets.

Claiming Your Purchased AEG in Aether Games

Aether Games has established a straightforward process for distributing AEG tokens to its users. This involves the use of a wrapped version of the AEG token (wAEG), which will be airdropped to participants.

Following the TGE, you will be able to visit Aether’s Claiming Portal to unwrap your wAEG tokens in accordance with the vesting schedule, to receive AEG. This process will happen on the Polygon network.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through this process:

Receiving Your wAEG:

  • Airdrop of wAEG: After the sale concludes, your allocated wAEG tokens will be airdropped to your wallet on the Polygon network.
  • Unwrapping Your Tokens: During the TGE (Token Generation Event), you will be able to access Aether’s dedicated claim portal. This portal will allow you to unwrap your wAEG into AEG tokens. It’s important to note that the amount you can claim aligns with the vesting schedule outlined in the sale terms.
