Q: What is SoundSelf?
A: Soundself is a shortcut to meditation. It’s a psychedelic journey to the center of the self.
Q: Is this a game?
A: SoundSelf is a deeply immersive and interactive experience. Instead of earning points SoundSelf invites you to a state of surrender.
Q: What's it like to play Soundself?
A: Start by relaxing at the base of a tree. Be guided to turn your attention to breath. Inhale fully and deeply, exhale with long tones. Each tone will propel you through strobing tunnels-of-light, impossible shapes, and into a meditative trance.
Q: What do I need to play SoundSelf?
A: You’ll need a gaming computer and a pair of headphones. A microphone is essential, any one will do. Lower the lights or don your VR headset.
Q: Why Should I play SoundSelf?
A: The experience can be emotional, peaceful, or transformative, each instance unique. It’s a powerful self-driven psychedelic experience, no drugs required.
Q: Do you have proof?
A: Hundreds of test players report feeling calmer, more at peace and better centered after playing even a short demo. Additionally, preliminary brain scans of SoundSelf players show activity consistent with brains on psychedelics. You can read the study here.
Q: Is this even Legal?!
A: Psychedelic therapies are already being approved by the FDA. Soundself is the first psychedelic experience legally available before these substances are proven safe.
Q: What inspired SoundSelf?
A: SoundSelf was inspired by a Group Ohm on LSD. It became an installation at Burning Man in 2013. Seven years of development later, it’s being released as a video game.
Q: Why did you make this?
A: Psychedelic states have had a profound impact, but are only accessible to a small fraction of people, we want to make these states available to everyone.
Led by Robin Arnott, the project attracted a handful of visual creators over the years, with work included by Topher Sipes, Perry Kroll, and Cale Bradbury. Evan Ballster created essential tools, including Imitione, which powers SoundSelf's voice analysis. Siddhartha Barnhoorn (Antichamber) was brought on to tackle the project's unusual score. Finally, Aequitas Luck (Desktop Dungeons) joined the team from South Africa to help wrap up the UX and game design as the project neared the end of its development journey.
