Today’s Meditation, by june, is a cute little game about wholesome flirting.
The intro text is simply “a flower starts to bloom”. And it does. A flower, in a pot on a windowsill, grows throughout the game. It marks the passing of time and the development of a relationship between a figure sat on a bed with a laptop, and the person they’re messaging.
Press space to type, and the character on the bed will send forth a stream of emoji. And this is where the wholesome vibes come in: no eggplants or peaches, just smiling faces (and, okay, some winking faces) and flowers and hearts and musical notes. And yet, as more messages are sent back and forth, the person on the bed begins to blush. Eventually, they type without your input. The flower is blooming. The sky outside the window is dark and dotted with stars. And the game fades away.
