Available in VR

Playne has a free DLC that brings full VR functionality to Playne for all three game modes.

Few important points about VR:

  • Quest 2 and VIVE Cosmos are not supported at the moment.
  • You need to download the free DLC to enable VR mode.
  • If you are not getting an option to run Playne in VR after installing the DLC, you need to restart your computer or try running it directly through Steam VR.

It's not a bad program, it's just hard to recommend since there are better and cheaper apps for meditation and yoga type breathing training out there. There is a rather limited selection of exercises that don't have a lot of ability to customise them. Most cues are not audio so you need to watch the screen which can be distracting. The dialogue isn't always great. You get penalised heavily for not using the program every day but resetting progress back to the start of whatever level you were on. On the other hand it is pretty with some pleasent sound effects and a growing world theme, and the exercises I've tried seem suitable for beginers, so if that's what it takes to get you into meditation and you can put aside the time to use it every day, then perhaps this program might be what you're looking for.

This game actually teaches you effective meditation techniques. I've studied meditation and this game gives you real-time guidance on exactly how to meditate in a deep and relaxing way. All you have to do is watch the screen and do what it says. The breathing techniques in this game are very effective. It's not just yoga that uses breathing techniques, but religions and meditation techniques in China, Korea, and other Asian countries. It's a safe and popular meditation technique. I'm Korean and I learned a similar breathing technique and it helped me to control my mind, although I'm still not good enough. It's like exercise, you have to do it every day. I didn't, and I made mistakes in my life because of it, but with this game, I'm going to start meditating and controlling my breathing once again. Smooth, relaxed breathing allows you to calm your brain and look inside yourself. This game teaches it well and guides you as an advisor. It will guide you to breathe in a natural rhythm amidst natural landscapes and sounds of nature. The texts that appear will gradually relieve you of the fatigue and stress that has settled in your mind and body. I highly recommend this game. This game does a great job of showing you how to meditate. If you play this game for a long time, you will understand your mind and emotions better and be able to accept and deal with real-life situations. Amicable relationships and solutions come from your inner peace, calm, and wisdom.

Please note - this is not really so much a "game" as it is an accessible and easy to use tool designed for gamers like me as an entry point into mental health and/or creating healthy habits. Starting something new or unfamiliar - like meditation - or addressing mental health can be intimidating. Meanwhile, video games tend to be a place of familiarity and comfort, especially for those that may be struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression just to name a few. Video games offer a place of escape. Playne is just that. Your own personal "playne" of existence that grows with you. The world gets more beautiful the more you play, the audio is great, and you can play it in VR or on the steam deck. There isn't really much "game play" and oddly enough you can play most of this game with your eyes closed (literally that's kind of the point).. but it uses the feedback loop games are so successful with to entice the user to build healthy habits and continue playing. It's also a great tool for accepting and letting things go, like breaking a streak for the first time. Honestly this is a fantastic way of using a popular medium and I love that games are a way to reach out to people in different ways like this. 100% recommend!
