Playne is a narrative-driven meditation game that helps you build daily meditation habits. With each meditation session, Playne's story begins to unfold and the life on your island begins to grow providing you with more environments to meditate in.

After completing your first meditation session, Playne gives you the ability to meditate in a more creative setting where you can choose to focus less on the story and personally customize the growth of your island with each session. With each session, you will receive a variety of seeds that you can plant where you want as you explore your island in a first-person mode.

Finally, if you show enough dedication to your meditation by completing the story mode you can unlock the Evolve game mode. This mode removes you from your small island and gives you a 4 sq km space to create your own forest as you continue to meditate.

"Care for your mental well-being, experience calm, and explore growth with meditation."
