Easy Allies Wiki

Mindful Games is a six-episode limited series hosted by Brandon Jones that analyzes how games consider and incorporate themes of meditation and mindfulness. The games selected take a look at how each can serve as an outlet for introspection.

$5 and up patrons gained access to episodes one week early before going live to the public. One hour after each episode went live to the public on YouTube, Brandon also streamed a Mindful Games Companion on Twitch featuring the game while doing a guided meditation.

History

The series first premiered on March 24, 2021 during EZX Digital '21, the five-year anniversary celebration of Easy Allies. The season finale was made available first to patrons on April 21, 2021 and made available to the public a week later along with the final Companion stream.

Premise

Mindful Games is a brief analysis of how a particular game demonstrates a heightened awareness or a calming place to relax your brain. Each episode concludes with a brief three minute sound and music montage that's there to take a breather and enjoy the scenery.
