Description

Breath of Light is a beautiful and meditative puzzle game featuring a hypnotic soundscape. Guide the breath of light through the puzzles and try to connect life to life in the most beautiful and fluid ways possible. This is done by rearranging stones in a serene and slightly dream-like Zen garden. These stones can gently push, pull, bend, reflect or shift the flow according to their size, shape and character. Don't worry, there are no scores or time limits. The breath itself has the feel of qi or life force and has a rhythm of its own; trying to rush it will only slow you down. Breath of Light is designed to take you out of the everyday. It is a relaxing puzzle game that's a little Zen garden, a little lotus flower and lot of flowing good vibes.

History

Many Monkeys: We wanted to build something peaceful, joyful and dead gorgeous. Many Monkeys has a strong background in interactive art installations using game technology and we really wanted to make something that just felt great. One of the first directions we took was far more comical. It was called Feng Shui Master and revolved around the idea of fighting through the mindful art of furniture arrangement. In a Zen move, as we built the game we pulled out the elements we didn't need. By the end of that process what we were left was Breath of Light.

Features

  • Beautiful and meditative puzzle game.
  • No time limits, no points, just connecting good vibrations.
  • A focus on feel and connection.
  • Step out of the bustle of the everyday.
  • Enchanting soundtrack by Winterpark.
