Ruya - A Meditative Puzzle Game About Sleep



Hello everyone!
I'm an Illustrator / Designer for Miracle Tea, an independent team of 4 based in Suffolk, UK. We've been working on this project alongside full time work for a while now and we're getting ready to announce our release date soon. Hope you guys dig it...


A game of tranquility through the art of matching cute characters in Ruya's world of dreams. Visit surrealist landscapes. Decorate yourself in flowers and introspect. A calming minimalist experience with juicy interactions and cool colour combinations to lower your blood pressure. The ethereal dreamlike soundtrack will tickle your senses and pull you into a state of peaceful flow.



The game features binarual beats allowing players to alter their state of consiousness into a hypnotic state of calm. A total of 64 unique puzzles with ever-changing mechanics sprinkled in. And 8 unique surrealist dreamscapes each with their own tone and mood.



A heartfelt illustrated narrative unfolds Ruya's memories as you progress.







- Out on iOS soon! -

Looks good and i am surprised that you named the game as "Ruya", is it "Rüya" meaning "Dream" from Turkish?

Hey thanks for the kind words. I apprecaite it. And yes! We chose that word specifically for a number of different reasons. The main one being that the meaning in Turkish embodies the diegisis of our game. Also we thought it sounded nice and looked clean typed out with our font.

Currently trying to figure out how to price it. We've got a 'try before you pay' model in place. But I worry that'll just frustrate people to throw that up after about a 20 minute play session. Can't help but feel that seems a little tacky too. A part of me wants have it just as a premium app but some people have told us they wouldn't expect this sort of game to be premium.
