"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-Ah

A word from the developer

I’m Krish, and I created Playne. This might be a one man team, but I’ve had the support of some wonderful people, without whom Playne would not have been possible. I am eternally grateful to you (you know who you are!)

I would ideally make Playne free - not because I don’t believe in capitalism, but because I want the benefits of Playne to be freely available to everyone. Unfortunately, this is my first game and I need to generate revenue so that I can spend my time building and developing Playne further. I’m also looking to develop a handful of other game ideas which find the synergy between mindfulness and video games. Unfortunately, to find time I need to find revenue.

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 #deep. 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 become better people and live a 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!
