Meditation by Emiel Kampen
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Meditation-game originially created for- and published on https://meditations.games/ on Februari 22nd .
It was created by Emiel Kampen. This is an artistic expression. As a player you don't have to achieve a goal, your only goal is to turn on your sound and screen.
When you are surrounded by friends and family it’s not hard to imagine feeling special on your birthday. There is positive recognition for the fact that you age. Whether you like the attention or not: it is likely people congratulate you, sing for you or even give you presents. It can transform what would have been an ordinary day into a special event that is to some extend all about you.
This game (or: vignette) is not about that special day. It is about the day after your birthday.
It can be weird getting up and realizing that everything is like it was before your birthday except… you are now one year older. There can be a certain mix of positive and negative emotions (depending on your new age) and you might be aware of the fact that you have entered a new phase in life. For me, this new phase always triggered all kinds of existential thoughts.
What does it mean to age? What does it mean to be older? Am I maturing and developing enough? What are other people doing with their lives? Does any of that even matter?
