Engadget: ‘Tetris Effect’ is therapy for distracted, anxious minds

“As I got further into Tetris Effect, the music began to soar. The chillwave vocals warble about everyone being connected. And indeed, everything starts to fit. The tetrominoes fall and fill my matrix, and I clear them, and then they fall again. My worries melt away. All thoughts melt away. It’s manipulative, yes, but that’s the point here: To stir your emotions with synesthetic art; to distance yourself from the demands of your active mind; to inoculate you against the chaos of the 24-hour news cycle and to help you find your flow state, where everything has its place. If nothing else, Tetris Effect is a state of mind.”
