What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Going early access gives me the opportunity to get better feedback from the players early in the development phase. This way I can ensure that I am adding features that work.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Planning to leave early access in Autumn this year (2019)

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The last piece of functionality I am working on before full release is expanding the catalogue of meditations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Nearly 20 updates and 10 major new features have been added to Playne in early access and the game is now very close to enter full release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. The retail price will be more than the early access version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our wonderful community plays a central role in giving us feedback and letting us know what works and what doesn't. We've added a myriad of new features thanks to our communities input and feedback.”

Reviews

“There are any number of meditation aids out there: Books, free and paid apps, YouTube videos, etc. 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”

THE STORY


You are 417 years old and you’ve forgotten why the sun no longer sets, how the trees stopped growing and how everyone became immortal. That is, until you met a little fox who wanted to help you remember, who wanted to show you how to bring balance back to the world.

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 wellbeing and mental health
  • Mindfully encourage players to build positive habits
  • Are engaging and fun
