Serenity is meant to be played as a meditation game. You are in control of the mouse and you will usher the swimmers into the whirlpool in the center of the screen. There is no winning or losing in the game. The makers of this game designed it with the idea of the player using it for relaxation and visualization. There are four different music choices that are all very serene. Even the water background and ripples were chosen with the idea of soothing the player. This is great to play after a long day at work or even better, before you plan on going to sleep for the evening.
