“Afloat, upon the surface of a smooth and silent river...
…slowly breathing, you observe the shifting currents as you float downstream…
There is little much to do, but let the river take you...”
Surrendering to its flow, slowly you realise that perhaps there is no separation between surface and sky, between your mind and the river itself…
…and if your mind is the river and the river your mind…perhaps if you can balance the thoughts and feelings and sensations that arise…you may have some say in where you are taken…”
Navigate the river's currents, balancing your mind against the thought forms that arise...Death is inevitable, but how much of life's poetry can you observe on your journey to the river's end?
36 cards build an immersive, poetic, solo play experience, ideal for quiet calm.
Carefully decide your way forward as you float downstream, attempting to achieve a clarity of mind, uncluttered by dark and weighty thoughts that threaten to pull you under.

"The game draws on meditation just like Gentle Rain does...and float downstream does that meditation thing really well, I would even say it does [it] in a slightly better way."
"The theme works really well here...a very interesting theme - this game is doing something unique and different."
"The game is [initially] quite complex [...] but once you know how to play the game it has a really nice flow."
"It's really well done...you really feel like you are going down river and you can really be one with your thoughts because the game becomes intuitive after a while."
"I really enjoyed this game, the theme is really nailed here, the meditation aspect works really well and once you learn the rules you really get into the flow and that's really nice."
"I think this is a really really unique game."
"The artwork of float downstream really tries to help you reach a meditative state. It’s quite abstract and feels ethereal...[...]It fits perfectly the theme of this game."
"As it is, the game creates a rather addictive solo experience. When you get to the end and count up the river cards you have traversed, subtract bad thoughts and add good thoughts to arrive at your total points, you want to play again straight away and beat your own score."
"I’m not much of a solo player myself, but even I enjoyed playing float downstream a lot."
"If you’re after a game that gives you a little bit of distraction and helps you relax and clear your mind, float downstream is definitely worth checking out."
