Playne Grows With You

The Story


At your ripe old age of 417, you’ve forgotten what made the sun stop moving, 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 name is Krish and I developed Playne to solve two of the most common challenges of mindfulness: understanding it and building a daily habit of it.

In Playne I've integrated a meditation technique, which I learnt from decades of practise, that is simple to practice and very effective in getting you mindful. Next, I've carefully developed gameplay elements that encourage you to meditate daily so that you can build a habit of it. I think games are a great medium which can be used to help us grow.

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 an income so that I can spend more time building and developing Playne further. I want to offer as much of my time and effort to bring about a more joyful world. I hope this page tells you what Playne can do for you, and I hope Playne can help you experience all the benefits of mindfulness.
