Reviews"I never would have considered to practise meditation if it wasn't for this game. As someone struggling with anxiety disorder, I usually have a hard time controlling my thoughts and feelings, but this game actually helps me to come at ease whenever I need it and for that I am very grateful." - Senugia "the moment I started “playing” this game I changed my mind, and I will definitely use these methods to help myself not only in critical moments but also in everyday life, just to make myself feel better. I’d definitely recommend this game to everyone." - Aga I My, Steam Curator "Good choice for anyone that wants to start or re-start a daily meditation routine and feels the need for a little motivational aid" - 711 "before this app, I didn't meditate at all. Since I started meditating with Playne, I only missed one day over the last 60 days or so" - Drone-AhYou are the wanderer At your ripe old age of 417, you’ve forgotten what made the sun stop moving, how the trees stopped growing and why everyone became immortal.

I’ve had the support of some wonderful people, without whom Playne would not have been possible. I am eternally grateful to you early adopters, beta testers, friends and family. I would ideally make Playne free - because I would like the benefits of Playne to be freely available to everyone. But this is my first game and I need to generate revenue so that I can spend my entire time building and developing Playne further. I want to offer as much of my time and effort to bring about a happier world, even if its just a wee drop in the ocean. I hope this page tells you what my game can do for you, and I hope Playne can help you experience all the benefits of mindfulness.Why am I making Playne?I love meditation and I love playing video games. I think meditation is an extremely powerful tool that can help us live a better and more joyful life. You don’t need zufus, incense sticks or crystals to experience the astounding benefits of meditation. All you are doing is learning about yourself and learning how to cultivate awareness. But I also know that sitting down and doing nothing can seem a little strange and challenging. That's why I've made Playne, because it's more than a game, its meditation. Made with Love in Scotland!

PLAYNE: The Meditation Game reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review I'm absolutely thrilled. In large Parts I can join Doomjazzer's Review, but I would also like to formulate a par own Words about it again: For me personally, the Game is just pretty perfect. It's not even the case that I'm fundamentally inexperienced about Meditation, but it's been rather a bit schluiry in the last Few months to Years. I suspect that the Previous Experience has nevertheless helped me to find my way around Playne very quickly, after all, the Technique itself is at least known in the Back Of my mind. The Meditation is embedded in a calm but Beautiful Environment – The World Playne has gone off the Rails and transforms piecemeal back to its original natural Beauty through daily meditation. You will be Accompanied by Fox, who answers Questions, explains Meditation, repeatedly tells of Playne, etc. The Meditation itself is kept very simple – there is a Breathing Instructions, pleasant Background Music and an Idea of how to imagine the Meditation. So It is very simple, but I think the Purpose is very well done. Grade by simplicity. If this Part were full Of Animations and ever new Stories, I Think it would have shot completely past the Finish. The longer you meditate, the more everything around you transforms. Nature Grows, Animals come back, you learn how Playne could do so, etc. You Interrupt the Streak for the most part you start all over again. On the one hand, this worms, on the other hand, you play the Game (even more than other Games) first And foremost for yourself or to do something Good for yourself. On this Point, too, I find Playne very successful – on the one hand, it creates enough Incentives and Curiosity that one wants to make progress. As a result, and by clearly Starting Meditation, it is personally easier for me to think of it every Day. But on the other hand, it is just so little that you don't somehow "gamble through" 3 ineffective Days, then know everything and have no Desire. From a later Level, the Evolve mode will be unlocked. I am very curious – maybe the Review can be supplemented again. Even though meditation always talks about long-term Consequences, I also find the short-term Consequences very pleasant. Be it in the Form of pleasant Rest after Meditation, the Ability to meditate relatively quickly even longer periods and Deepen the Peace or Internalization, in the case of stress-/chaotic Situations, to breathe deeply. It is also easier to simply switch off and relax in a full and noisy subway;-) Absolutely recommended.
