#meditationgames: a project by Rami Ismail (@Vlambeer) “One morning in late 2017, I stumbled upon a small game called TEMPRES. It is a simple minimalist puzzle game, and it might have taken no more than five minutes of my time to figure out. I left the game both impressed by developer tak’s clever design, but also by the feeling of having played this short game early in the morning. Since that day, aided by an amazing crew of curators, developers, and support, I’ve collected custom-made games by over 350 developers – one for each day of the year. Every developer was asked to pick a day that means something to them, or just a random day, and to make something inspired by that day. The idea was to create a meditation of sorts, a reflection, or to capture a particular moment. Meditations is a launcher that, every day, loads a small game and an accompanying text as a meditation, distraction, lesson, or inspiration for that day.”
How does Meditations work?
The file you download is a launcher that will allow you to access today's Meditation. To do this, the Meditations launcher occassionally downloads files of up to 500MB containing the required files.
What kind of games are in here?
Meditations are free games made in approximately six hours. They're often small, experimental, and minimalistic - and can frequently be personal. Many of these games have been inspired by the day that they're available on, and will relate in some way to the creators' life or interests. In general, they will feature no text, and should take you approximately five minutes to complete.
What happens if I miss a day?
Every game is only available on the day it was made for. That means that if you miss a day, the Meditation will be available again next year.
