Mon Samsara

A transformative game exploring our life habits.

By playing Mon Samsara, you get to gently orient the development of a human being and choose how to fill his or her life with objects and people to make it all worthwhile.

These bonds impact when and how it all ends. But what is the meaning of it all?  Only you can know the answer.

How to play

When an item is within your reach, just click and hold to capture it.
For the rest, the fun is in figuring it out for yourself!

Controls

Mouse pointer = Highlight object
Left mouse button (Click and hold) = Charge and drag object

Although I didn't quite get the way things lower (or grow?) your meters I still enjoyed it. We are needy creatures, aren't we? Très bien!

Thanks Traumaturge! Indeed we are ;-) As you stated, part of the experience is in figuring out the flow of energy in the game and see if we agree with what it tells us about our life. Cheers!

You may receive this error in certain circumstances: "It seems your browser does not support running Unity WebGL content from file:// urls. Please upload it to an http server, or try a different browser.", but you can get around it. You may be able to download and play from within the itch application on Windows, but you will receive this error if you try to open the downloaded files from your Windows file system instead. However, you will also get this error if you try to download and play from within the itch app on Linux, which is more inconvenient and is how I ran into it.

This requires having Chrome/Chromium installed.
On Windows, create a new shortcut to Chrome and modify its "target" parameters to something like this, but with your own path to Itch games:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" E:\Programs\itch\monsamsara\index.html --allow-file-access-from-files

This will also work from within a cmd terminal.

On Linux, I created a mon_samsara.sh shell script with the following and set it to executable:

chromium /home/my_user_name/.config/itch/apps/monsamsara/index.html --allow-file-access-from-files

These are all on one line in case that's not clear.

Of course, the other option is just to play from the itch.io website, but if you want to download the files, this is how to do it. This should also work for other Unity WebGL games.

Thanks for the head's up. The game is indeed meant to be played in a browser. Cheers!
