“It was the springboard to me meditating a few times a week.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“So many videogames focus on bringing powerful emotions out in their players with large flashy scenes, dramatic stories, and intense action. In comparison, the calmness of Playne stands out, offering tranquility and personal growth in lieu of external validation.”
Super Jump

“While mindfulness and flow can be achieved through a variety of games, certain video games, such as Playne, have also been developed with the specific goal to improve mindfulness.”
Video Games and Well-being, Dr Rachel Kowert

From the Developer

My name is Krish, and I created Playne to explore how games can help us build habits that leave a lasting positive impact on our lives. Playne was born out of my love for video games and my interest in helping others learn and build a practice of meditation & mindfulness.

Playne is what it is today largely thanks to the feedback from the wonderful players who gave it a chance in Early-Access. I am incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for helping me make Playne what it is today.

Krish is a solo game developer who works out of his micro-game studio in Edinburgh, Scotland.
