May 17 Meditation (Alvaro Bermejo)

At first glance I thought this was going to be another jigsaw Meditation.

No, this is an inventory management game, the perfect representation of travel anxiety. You have to arrange belongings – all clothes, I think, though they’re made up of blocky pixels – into a grid. The grid is more generous than it could have been, so it’s not too difficult to fit all those items around each other. The catch? The screen starts to shake, to the sounds of a train or some other kind of transportation. It might not make perfect logical sense, because usually one packs before getting on the train, but it definitely gives you that sense of anxiety and of being rushed no matter how much time you give yourself before you have to leave.
