These games will help you relax
An unconventional puzzler is the perfect way to chill.
Some puzzle games have stressful timers. Others, daunting difficulty. These games have neither. They’re relaxing, approachable experiences you can play at your own pace – and they’re all one of a kind.
In Furistas Cat Cafe, the charming little shop you’ve opened serves more than coffee. Customers can also order cuddle time with a cute kittie. Pair them with a feline that shares their personality – friendly, shy, playful – and they’ll be extra-happy. Watching your patrons hug cats may be heartwarming, but don’t get too distracted: You have other tasks to attend to, like wiping away paw prints and petting lonely kitties till they purr. Before long, you’ll have earned enough from your content clientele to buy more cats, plus lots of new cool decorations for your store.

Soothing in a completely different way, Flower transforms you into a petal on the wind, gliding gently through open spaces, searching for other flowers. As you find them and collect more petals, you slowly form a kaleidoscopic whirlwind that restores withered fields or lights up a dark valley in a burst of colour. There’s something wonderful, even moving, about bringing life to these environments. But as a purely sensory experience – the way blades of grass part as you drift through them, the musical notes that play as you touch new flowers – this game is pretty amazing. Your whole journey is so effortless, you’ll forget you’re solving puzzles at all.
Helping you unwind with a suitable level of playfulness, Hidden Folks challenges you to find characters and objects in dense scenes. Unlike traditional drawings, however, these locations aren’t static. Here you can part curtains, lift garage doors, and peek behind bushes. With the game’s adorable black-and-white art and hilarious sound effects, scouring a factory for a walking robot is as fun as combing a forest for a dropped hairbrush. Finding everything will take a while, but there’s no rush – you’ll want to take your time and savour all the amazing details.
