A downloadable game for Windows
Steam Rating : 96% with 230 reviews
“What makes Playne interesting is that it uses gaming conventions and reward systems to encourage you to keep coming back. Instead of just giving you a notification that says, “Hey, it’s time to meditate now!” it lets you watch your world grow and evolve” - Sprites and Dice

FROM THE DEVELOPER
My goal is to create video games that are beneficial to our lives.
I want to create games that help my players live a more joyful life. I want my games to genuinely help players grow. Growth that helps us get a sense of fulfilment, freedom, relaxation, openness and wellbeing. In more practical terms, I want my games to reduce stress beyond just the playtime, provide tools that benefit the players outside of the game and to increase their insight of themselves. All while making games that are fun! TLDR, my goals are to create games that :
- Have a powerful, positive impact on our lives
- Bring about growth and change into the real world
- Ease our suffering, improve our well-being and mental health
- Mindfully encourage players to build positive habits
- Are engaging and fun
