Description: Be the wind and guide a beautiful sky lantern that spreads the powerful message of everlasting love, by bringing life and colour back to the world around you. Enjoy four beautiful Asian-inspired worlds, each with a different theme, nature and architecture. Spread vibrant, happy colours through gray and lifeless lands by flying over them as a red, light-emitting lantern.

The influence of the lantern’s light not only changes the colour of the world, but also produces various additional effects, such as turning other lamps on, bringing animals to life, and making windmills start spinning. You’ll ultimately succeed once the kingdom is full of colour and happiness has returned to the land.

Review: If you love your games slow and peaceful this might well be the perfect game for you. This is a game that can help you unwind and relax and while it isn’t the most detailed the worlds always seem beautiful and serene. Sadly the game being immersive and relaxing is also part of its problem as it is over way too quickly leaving to wanting more and feeling annoyed that there isn’t any more. While I did find the movement to be a little nauseating in VR I still feel happy to recommend this game, no matter how short it is. This is something to play to get away from it all, but nothing as full-on as a meditation app. For me this game is worth the asking price, but only just.
