Games are fun and challenging, but we can’t deny they are also a bit stressful. Most times you will need to go through pulling some hair before you get your dose of satisfaction, but Barmark aims to do things differently. Barmark is one of those aesthetics-focused titles with a high priority in finding inner peace.
This game features no deaths, goals or points. Instead, it allows you to alter your surroundings “in order to achieve harmony and personal perfection”. I know, it sounds totally weird, but the game is actually quite interesting, and design buffs will find it especially enticing.
The user will be dropped in one of 8 possible landscapes (selected randomly), along with a couple archanimals which will be chosen to live in your land. You can then travel the lands and activate certain machines that can alter your surroundings. Continue changing your space by finding endless machine combinations and planting flowers to keep your animals happy, as well as yourself.
Barmark is a very interesting concept; one I happen to like during stressful days. We know some of you prefer those action-packed, thrilling games, but Barmark will be there when it’s time to wind down and find zen. Of course, it’s not a cheap game, as all that design and balance is not easy to produce. The game costs $2.99 from the Google Play Store. Who’s buying?
