Meditation 5 is a minimalist game about balance, concentration and strategy inspired by Taoist philosophy. The goal is to prevent the screen from turning red by shooting abstract enemies with two crosshairs simultaniously.

Since the difficulty increases the longer you play, you may need to sacrifice advancement to get yourself some air.

how to play????

Hello th7247, thank you for the question.

To start Meditation 5, exectue the file "med5.exe" which you can find in the game folder.

There is an ingame tutorial which explains the basic controls & mechanics but feel free to shoot us a specific question if something is unclear. A controller of some sort is highly recommended though.

Neat game! I was intrigued by how the vibes kept shifting from relaxed to frantic and back to relaxed over and over, after a while I really started to get into the zone. :) 

Thank you, glad you liked it.
