The mindful xp Volume is a compilation of eight games each attempting to achieve personal, intimate, and ultimately meaningful experience through game mechanics and play. Each game with its own unique mechanics, aesthetics, and narrative represents a different experiment with meaning and artistry through videogames. Through conventional mechanics like shooting and non-conventional mechanics like holding hands, through heavily linear experiences focused on story to freeform explorations of systems of play, each game strives to deliver a thoughtful experience. The mindful xp Volume is designed for players who are interested in looking beyond just fun and exploring games as a medium of communication and expression.
