Just trying to relax here…

Meditative Anxiety was made over a weekend using my procedural music algorithm from Body Music building the notes within an octave to distort and subvert how we perceive and traverse 3D space in first-person games.

WASD + Mouse to control.

  • Catch the objects, avoid the objects.
  • Continue playing the game, stop playing the game.
  • Meditate. Relax.
  • Be anxious. Be disturbed.

Warning: Flashing lights and heavy screen distortion/glitching

Thanks for inspiring me to turn this into a harsh noise music-maker. I like myself some good auditory chaos. (Use Audacity to reverse the audio in each speaker at random for a 'Caretaker meets Merzbow' vibe.)

It would be great to have a support for webcams.

Plus, do you have any plan to share the project file to others? I am very interested in looking at how it works.

(I am planning to use this as a standalone art project which involves webcam, a kiosk computer and this...game, where it converts webcam's image changes to random keypress based on the most wide area of color)


The game's code is available on github. https://github.com/lightnarcissus/ActiveResistance

Please do share and attribute if you make something with it. :)

Cool concept. Strangely relaxing, for my ears at least. :P

How to play? I only see noise and scary sound.
