A friend Michael Highland has created a minimalist interactive video game intended to “evoke feelings of being a child. There is no way to win, and likewise, no way to lose.” It uses East Forest music (with Thacher Schmid on strings) and is even named after an EF song off Music Meditations! Play and download via the link or watch a video of game play below (but resist watching the video if you want to download and play!).
