Five Relaxing Games
Sometimes you just want to slump in you chair, load up a simple game with calming music, and relax. While the game might be challenging, frustration is never around the corner, because you’re too relaxed to get worked up by the difficulty.
This game made a previous list, but its atmosphere is undeniable. Spot the four differences in each dynamic scene set to relaxing atmospheric music. Watch clouds drift lazily by and airplanes soaring slowly to their destinations.
Starlight & Starlight 2
Move the stars around as you try to find the right perspective to view each constellation. The first two Starlight games are set to relaxing piano music.
Armor Logic 2
Solve nonograms of while listening to cool jazz. Or just leave the music on in the background while you go about other things.
While this is not a “game”, Echogenesis is a relaxing interactive experience. Modify the music as you explore different landscapes. Click, drag, and move the cursor mouse around. Listen and watch the flow of the music and the creatures and elements in the environment change.
In a similar vein, listen to the music change as you get closer to solving each level in this minimalist game. Volumes rise as you fill the colored circles with energy. Your efforts are rewarded with the full song at the end of each movement.
