The holidays are over and done with for many of us, and it's time to get stuck in to 2024. Since it's no longer socially acceptable to sit on the sofa building a personal yurt from chocolate wrappers and a stuffing-gravy mortar, it's time to optimise our downtime. So let's help each other out and share the very best games for unwinding and chilling out.
Everyone relaxes differently. If at the end of a hard day you work out the stress with a physical or rhythm game, that's as valid as a minimal-input, unfailable game with a soundtrack of whale song and ASMR. What matters is the effect it has: soothing, restorative, tranquil, healing, and stress-busting are the magic words here.
Because others may not know about your nomination or why you find it relaxing, we're going to need at least a couple of paragraphs (say 80 words or more) of explanation: what's the game about, and why does it work so well when you need to chill?
