Sashiko is a meditative sewing game based on the Japanese form of decorative stitching to reinforce or repair old and worn clothing, making it stronger and warmer.
Players have to physically sew using a needle and thread on a custom-made sewing circuit board, following the geometric patterns displayed in the game. There is no time limit and there is no right or wrong. Players can choose to replicate the displayed pattern, or create their own. The sewing board is an alternative controller made from cardboard, denim and the Makey Makey.
