Hi everyone,

I've made this introspective game called "Reflections at Sunset". I'm proud of the things it explores and would be happy if you played it.

In it, you enjoy watching the sunset, listen to the sound of the waves, and allow your thoughts to wander towards the things in your life. It was inspired by my experiences while meditating and the process of going from innocuous thoughts to more personal ones.

As such, there are multiple different conclusions you may reach in your thoughts. Will you think of past pain? Great joy? Love? Loss?

There is no single answer. There's only you and your thoughts.

Feel free to reach out with any questions on development or of any feedback you'd like to give.

And remember, your thoughts are yours and yours alone.

Awesome game, I love the concept and themes you worked with. Your words paired with the vaudio-visual component make for a transfixing experience.

Thanks! I tried making it work together and I'm glad you noticed!

Thanks very much for the comment! :D

This is an interesting use of the branching narrative style of "game". It's kind of like an aid for meditation. The text entry field makes the experience very personal.


I had the idea that choices in games don't have to necessarily be choices by an avatar but a choice by the player themselves and could be more personal.

I didn't have the text entry at first, but when I found Twine supported it, it seemed like a natural way to make players' choices become more personal.

I also realized realized that meditation is kind of an interactive exercise (for me at least) so when I was thinking of this game concept, I drew from those experiences.

Thanks for the comment :D
