About this game

Traveller, set down your load and listen!
I'm going to tell you the story of Svetaketu, a warrior turned wise man who was at the same time the path and the goal.
His story begins in the thick of battle. But amid the slaughter, he was suddenly assailed by doubt.
And the story ends with his awakening and his oneness with all things.
Traveller, venture with him along the path that leads beyond the appearances of this world.
Take the path of no return.

By the wise, who are free from attachment, fear and anger
and who are well versed in the meaning of the Vedas,
this has been verily realised as totally devoid of all imaginations
free from the illusion of the manifold, and non-dual.
Mandukya Upanishad II.35

Each stage of the adventure is accompanied by a musical puzzle that will take you into a meditative state. Visual puzzles as complex as they are relaxing: connect the dots and draw symbolic constellations that will allow Svetaketu to fulfill his destiny.

Features :
A dreamlike art direction with the mesmerizing soundtrack of James Blackshaw
An interactive tale by web documentary pioneer Ana-Maria De Jesus
A poetic initiation to oriental spirituality and to the philosophy of the Upanishads: these immemorial writings that call us to focus on the essential.

Sadhana is an interactive tale by Ana-Maria De Jesus, produced by La Générale de Production. It is co-produced and published by ARTE, the European culture channel and digital network, with the support of CNC.

An honest review. This game has a decent potential and also needs more work. This game is lacking more sounds. Things are quiet while you're just walking through the scenerys but sound is important because it brings "soul" into a game and lets players immerse themselves. Also, the story telling had no voice over and so it was quite boring to follow along. There is ALOT of walking and there isn't much to see.. not even any animals on the screen. "Dead" would be the word to describe the feeling.

I want to like the game, but if I let the screen time out or go to another app, there is no sound when I return. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it still doesn't work. I feel like the music is a big part of the game, so this really makes it unusable. I hope they fix this because the game seems really interesting.

Hello Sara Hale, thanks for the feedback. So that we can improve your experience, can you tell us more about the glitches you encountered at (when they appear, the circumstances, ...)? Have a nice day !

This is one that is more focused on telling a story than being a challenging game, so you should know that going in. It's short, but visually really wonderful and the story has a meditative quality that I appreciated.
