The way back to the essentials

Sâdhanâ preview image

Dive into Indian tales by following the spiritual journey of Svetaketu. Guided by his master, this young soldier undertakes an initiatory quest. But the path to self-knowledge is punctuated with inner demons to vanquish and puzzles to solve. Will you be able to triumph over them and finally reach wisdom?

Embark on a mystical quest in a dreamlike universe inspired by oriental mythology. You are Svetaketu, a fearsome and proud archer, a tiger among men. Tired of war, you want to detach yourself from the material world to reach the supreme wisdom. You will have to show perspicacity, the road to the flames of knowledge is strewn with trials: get inspired by the precepts of the spiritual master to cross them one by one and finally touch the essential.


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.


This original interactive experience alternates puzzle phases with narrative and contemplative scenes. Let yourself be carried away by the voice of Guru, the spiritual master of Svetaketu, and discover the philosophy of the Upanishads: these immemorial writings calling us to refocus on the essential.
