A new gaming platform, called Endgadget:
According to creator Rami Ismail, each one is inspired by and will only be available on that particular date. Ismail, who’s also chief of Dutch indie game studio Vlambeer, said he played a short game in 2017 that made him wish he had one “like it for every day of the year.” He then enlisted hundreds of developers to make his vision a reality over the course of 2018.
Meditations will launch you a new game every day, inspired by that day, only on that day. There's all sorts of games in here, from curious small puzzle games and challenging little platformers to personal games about life and loss and happiness and love and death and everything.

Ismail says the Meditations launcher will offer titles from various genres, including those that tackle “culturally and personally sensitive topics such as death, depression, anxiety, violence, sexuality, and addiction.” Every game is only available on the day it was made for. That means that if you miss a day, you’ll have to wait until it’s again available for play next year.
The Meditations project keys off Greenwich Mean Time, the international zero-point for time. This means that, depending on your timezone, the switch to a new day (and a new game), might happen sooner or later than your local midnight hour. However, it will happen at the same time every day.
After initially running the app, it will require a download, and then will update its content, so it may take awhile to get ready to go the first time around.
