Rheia is the mother of gods in Greek mythology. Her name translates to the verb 'to flow'.

In the 1975 the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined the term 'flow' for a frictionless state mind which is best described by an intellectual rush of joy, creativity, challenge and total focus.

Rheia Games develops games with the intention to let its players experience and cherish this particular state of mind.
