About:

Becalm is a relaxing experience where you drift in a sailboat through magical waters. This is a special boat, you won't have to steer, worry about logistics, capsizing or pirates. In this trip the goal is to relax and... becalm!

  • A five minute journey.

  • Bright and dreamy watercolor aesthetics.

  • An awesome synthesizer ensemble cascading through field recorded soundscapes.

  • Every time you play it selects a different journey.

  • 3 destinations (more to come).

  • Endless mode, so you can leave it running in the background while working or relaxing.
