I would be really happy if my presentation sparks a discussion and hopefully you can give me some feedback:
We are building an immersive smartphone game with 3 main building blocks:
- the gameplay itself conveys a spiritual way of focussing on and dealing with stress
- in the game you can find guided meditations with a background that visualizes smartphone dependence
- each meditation closes with a dark screen where players can stay as long as they want
Every time a dark screen has been gone through (no matter how long), the immersive world around the player grows with plants and music. In the future the total time spent in silence could be officially published online.
The idea is to offer a platform where the balance between dependence and independence can be reached through this gameful approach.
Our website will be hopefully released at the end of this year. We are on Instagram (Smagotcha). Check it out if you want.
I would be interested what you have to say about this project. We started in late 2018 and are a team of around 10 people. We are still open for more positions so if somebody is interested let me know.
But first of all, what’s your impression?
