It’s been more than 5 years in the making, but finally the emotional action adventure, created from the mind – quite literally – of Jason Oda has arrived on Xbox One and PC. Are you ready for Waking?

Available right now to purchase and download on Xbox One, Waking comes about via the development genius of Jason Oda, with the teams at ID@Xbox and tinyBuild helping things to become a reality.

Priced at £16.74, Waking sees you placed in a coma as you dream, to deliver a journey that is rich in self reflection, thoughtfulness and remembrance – all by combining in explorative elements and the chance to partake in a bit of real-world meditation. It promises to be a totally unique affair, one that will grip you from start to finish in your quest to survive, and your overall fight to exist.

If you wish to know more about how this all plays out, check out our exclusive interview with Jason as he divulges the secrets behind how this has come to reality.

Features include:

  • A true meditative experience – Waking blurs the line between fantasy and reality, taking you deep inside your mind both in-game and out. Third-person exploration melds with guided meditation techniques to create a new type of experience at the intersection of reflection, emotion and memory.
  • A uniquely personal journey – Battle the forces of entropy surrounded by the ones you love. Waking asks you to draw on your own experiences, fears and desires and bring them with you on your journey to wake. Here in the dream your memories are your protectors, your companions and your weapons.
  • A world of dreams and nightmares – The Mindscape is a treacherous place, a shifting, twisted maze of shattered thoughts and errant memory. Explore the procedurally generated halls of your mind and experience a dreamworld unlike any other, rendered in stunning cinematic splendor.
  • A fight to survive. A fight to exist – Trapped within your dying mind you face a choice: give in to oblivion or fight for your existence. Waking’s unique combat system provides a new breed of challenge as you confront your own personal fears and call on aspects of the world itself in your battle against the darkness. Use your memories and willpower to uncover the mystery of your dreaming, and return to the waking world.

Our full review of Waking on Xbox One is fast approaching and should be with you in the coming days. If you’re sold on the premise though and fancy taking in this trip into meditation, then head to the Xbox Store right now. You’ll also find the game available on PC.

Game Description:

Locked in the darkness of a coma, you dream. In the recesses of your mind, voices call you home, beckoning you towards the light and the void beyond. But it is not your time. Not yet. Waking is a uniquely personal journey of self reflection and remembrance combining third person exploration and real-world meditation. Traverse the twisted pathways of your mind in a quest to wake, and make choices that shape a uniquely individual experience. Along the way, face your fears and desires as you summon memories of loved ones, and do battle with those who would have you sleep forever.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
