You need to unpack the archive and then launch binary installer file from it:

cd ~/Downloads
wget https://www.aescrypt.com/download/v3/linux/AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install.gz
gunzip AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install.gz
chmod +x AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install
./AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install

Then enter your sudoer password after prompt

[sudo] This program requires administrator privileges.  Please enter your password: 

and the installer will be launched.

After installation you will have three new commands: aescrypt, aescrypt-gui, aescrypt_keygen. Consider to read their documentation to determine how to use them.
