Play a New Free Game Every Day This Year With Meditations

A new initiative through a new launcher.

If you’re looking for a nice, new, and small game to delve into at the beginning of 2019, then we have good news. Meditations is a brand new launcher on PC, and is offering a new free game every day, all year long.

"What if every day, there was a small message from the past with a small game or toy to play with?" reads the description on the Meditations website. "Meditations is a launcher that, every day, loads a small game and an accompanying text as a meditation, distraction, lesson, or inspiration for that day."

You’ll need to be kitted out with either Windows 7 or newer, OSX 10.12 or newer for Apple devices, and at least 500MB of free space on your PC to download Meditations. There's also a slight content warning for games on Meditations, which reads "The meditations launcher launches a wide variety of games on a variety of personal topics."

Meditations is entirely free, and will be for the upcoming year. Right now, there's a limited list of credits for the people behind the initiative, which include Rami Ismail, Jupiter Hadley, Adriel Wallick and others, but a full list of credentials for every single game will be made available on December 31, 2019.

As of right now on January 2, 2019, there's a tiny game about a small circle that expands. To "beat" the game, you have to hold down the mouse in small bursts to gradually increase the size of the circle, until it takes up the majority of the screen. Get the circle to the biggest possible size, and the game window will close.

It's worth noting that if you miss a game it won't be possible to play it until the same day next year. Each game released via Meditations is only available on a single day each year.
