There's something quite lovely about having an oasis of calm in my pocket at all times. I've tried so many apps in the past to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, a disorder which I've struggled with for over a decade.
I stumbled on My Oasis by accident as I was browsing for games to play. It promised a calming experience, so I thought “why not”. Just a heads-up, it's better to play - a word I'm using loosely here - with headphones, as the music and sounds are soothing.
These add to the stark floating island that makes up the heart of the game. It can be rotated and moved, letting you watch as flora and fauna bloom all around. In the middle of the island is the source of all life, a pool of water. Surrounding that, a few trees and patches of grass.
