January 23 Meditation (Nick Kaman)

If you step away from Nick Kaman’s Meditation about drowning for long enough, the song ends and all you hear is panting and periodic submersion.

I’ve left this one until late in the day because it didn’t work on my Mac so I had to load up the PC, which I was reluctant to do in case I found myself accidentally playing several hours of The Sims 4 again. I’ve got that post-lunch, pre-supper slump, so maybe that’s why it took me so long to realise that you can actually make this person whose drowning experience you’re witnessing from a first-person perspective swim towards the island with some old-fashioned left-click-right-click-repeat. Or maybe it’s because some of these Meditations require very little from the player.

Maybe I would give up this easily in real life, if I were ever swept out to sea.

People on Twitter are loving this one! I cannot for the life of me imagine why you would want to remember nearly drowning, but maybe it’s a way of closing some kind of memory loop, like writing down an angry letter and then screwing it up. This game is only playable for today, after all.
