Dreamlike games for sleepless nights
You’ve counted sheep to the moon and back, but you're still tossing and turning. The harder you try to relax, the harder you fail.
When sleep eludes you, try taking your mind off things with these relaxing games. Their touching storylines and calming environments may just do the trick.
The End of the World is a game of heartbreak and healing. You play as a man who flits between cold, empty days of solitude and the warm, colourful memories of his past.
It’s tempting to stay inside these memories, where the world feels right. However, as you explore the circumstances leading up to a break-up, you may also find a way to move on.

Celebrate the sweet, simple pleasures of life in Showa Candy Shop 2. Set in Shōwa-era Japan, you help run a small store in a quiet corner of town. You play as the owner, a kindly old woman.
The game brims with 1960s Tokyo charm: as your shop fills with children seeking sweets and toys, you’ll collect letters and mementos to piece together a life rich with love and loss, laughter and tears. Time flies. Slow down and let the good times linger, or you might miss them.

Peace of mind
This game shows how memories are more malleable than we think. In To the Moon, you are a doctor who is able to alter memories and make the wishes of dying patients come true.
One of your patients, Johnny, is in a coma and nearing his last breath. His final wish is to go to the moon. As you dig deeper into his mind, a story of joy and heartache unravels. More than a trip to the moon, the game reveals a journey of the soul.
