this was really cute and I'm definitely going to try this with my partner, thank you for making this!
Tiny God: A Tiny Game of Two-Minute Mindfulness
A downloadable nanogame
You are bonded to a tiny god who follows you everywhere and is very interested in what you have to say. Your tiny god has a lot of questions--how will you answer them?
Tiny God is a very small LARP for one player. It is barely a game and has almost no rules, and fits on the size of a business card. Tiny God is about talking through your thoughts with a companion who is always interested in you, even if they don't always understand.
Your Tiny God intends to help you slow down when you need a moment. It is a small opportunity to work through your thoughts while envisioning the potential for beauty in space. This is a short game meant to be played throughout the day or whenever you need it.
This nanogame was initially designed as a folding business card but is now available digitally. It includes:
- a print-and-play version designed to fold and fit in your wallet/pocket.
- One vertically scrolling digital image.
- One horizontally scrolling digital image.

PDFs have a ton of overlapping text for some reason? Cannot read them effectively...
My apologies! I can't seem to replicate the issue but I will see what I can do to figure out what's causing it.
Tiny God is an adorable bookmark game about a tiny god that has adopted you as its parent.
The tiny god doesn't understand most of the elements of your life, so you explain them to it.
That's the gameplay, but despite being so simple, it hits hard. Trying explain what a blender is to a being that lives in a rosebush outside your apartment can be hilarious, but if your god asks "why are you sad?" and you just saw something on the news, answering honestly has the very real potential to be heartrending.
In a sense, this is sort of a mindfulness larp, but it's an unbelievably good one, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is okay with dropping their guard a bit around an imaginary creature.
cute! the title was very accurate. reminded me of lower school, it was nice to imagine like that. i like my tiny god very much
This was really nice! It made me realize that there's an object that I've had on my various desks since childhood, that always came along to a new space. Must be my tiny god's domain!
I LOVE this!
What a pleasant little game. The perfect spoonful of sugar to make me stop and think about my feelings and surroundings.
Lovely little bit! Thanks for making and sharing
I love this! Would it be possible to get a black-and-white foldup version so it's easier to read when I print it?
That's a great idea! I will talk to the layout artist and see if I can get that done--it may not be available soon but I will start looking into it for sure! I might jerry-rig something simple if I can't get a nice printer-friendly version done soon.
