Rami Ismail, co-founder of Vlambeer and developer of Nuclear Throne and Luftrausers, has announced a new indie launcher called Meditations.

Meditations isn’t competing with the likes of Steam, GOG Galaxy or Epic Store. Instead, it gives you a small indie game to play every day. Each of these games was made in around six hours and take about 5 minutes to complete. The best part? They are all completely free.

But there’s a catch – every game is only available for 24 hours. The launcher is locked to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so the switch to a new day depends on your time zone. For example, if you live in LA, the move will occur at 4 pm.

If you miss a day’s “meditation,” you’ll have to wait a whole year for it to be available again, on the same day.

According to Ismail, the games available on Meditations range from “curious small puzzle games and challenging little platformers to personal games about life and loss and happiness and love and death and everything.”

The first game (which is no longer available) was Tempres, which, As PC Gamer describes it, was a game about “pressing the space bar and watching a meter tick up.” It sounds intense. It’s also the game that gave Ismail the idea for Meditations.

If you dig the idea of playing a different tiny indie game each day, you can download the Meditations launcher right now.
