A downloadable Interactive Experience for Windows

Welcome to Interactivity: The Interactive Experience, an exhibition by Aetheric Games, featuring The Button. In the world of videogames, interaction engineers have spent years rigidly defining the specialised and determinate ways that you, a videogame protagonist, may interact with your world. Here in this guided tour you will find them all, glistening with promise, awaiting the click of your mouse and ready to edutain you! Please enjoy. Except for The Button. That's not for you.

Interactivity: The Interactive Experience is a short* meta-narrative experience about how our interaction with game worlds is limited by convention.

Originally created for the Jan 2016 Unreal Jam (the theme was "Don't push the button"), this version is updated with voice-over, an expanded and easier to find "true" ending, as well as a bit more polish here and there.

*In this case, short means 5-10 min if you run straight through, or 20-30 min if you take your time and see everything there is to see.

I had an unusual reaction to this game? Honestly I got really into it. I was inspired. The narrarator's voice is hypnotic. Here is a sample, perhaps someone can explain this...

Hey, thanks for playing. Not sure what was going on with that spooky interference! The original version of the game had that bug, but then I decided to completely remove ALL traces of The Button from the game, so it should be fixed now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Really interesting game and dialog from the "narrator"! I had to try really hard to break this game and get to the button! 

Great game! It was lot's of fun, and pretty tricky, but once I finally got to the button and pushed it it was so worth it. Great job with the build up. and the solution to finding the button made me think outside of the box multiple times. Very reminiscent of the stanly parable. Great job.


Great game. Build up was fantastic and all played out very well. Runs very smoothly and fun to play. Superb job. Well done... :)

Hi, thanks for making the vid - glad you enjoyed it. I'm planning to share your vid on twitter - do you have an account you that I can @ you?

Don't use twitter. Sorry. Thanks for sharing tho. :)


You made a cute little game! I enjoyed myself. Pretty meta, pretty silly, slightly educating, cheeky, etc. Good stuff! I'll follow you in case you make more rad stuff :P 

Enjoy the Lumps Play. Lumps Plays are pop-up commentary. Quite different from the typical let's play! I hope you like it, cheers.

This was fun ^^ I probably should've given this a playthrough when I wasn't sick though XD

Really enjoyed the game, Reminded me a lot of the Stanley Parable. I admit I was stupidly stuck in the third room for a long time though. The flashlight was a bit of a hindrance, but come to find out you really didn't need it. Short and enjoyable.

This game was super cool!
A neat little puzzle game that breaks the forth wall
which is a super awesome thing to do! :)
Absolutely inspired by "The Stanley Parable" so
if you like that game you will love this amazing
but short adventure. :)

Stay Rad Everybody!!
