Noting that Lazy Galaxy might perfectly fit into your relaxing gaming list.

I opt to lay off gaming and listen to some music. Puts me right to sleep.

You are the Mooseman and you have the ability to see all that is hidden to the mortal eye. You are about to visit three layers of this universe - the first one is the Lower World where the spirits of the dead reside.

Explore the worlds inspired by Perm animal style
Dive into the deep atmosphere of folk Komi music
Meet long forgotten gods and spirits
Learn the ancient myths of finno-ugric tribes
Don't expect an easy journey, there are riddles in the dark
Unlock new abilities and use them to get to the Upper World
Find all the artefacts that are hidden from the mortal eye

I was watching a stream with this game yesterday:

Looked pretty relaxing and couldn't remember having seen it before.

I have been playing a lot of Slay The Spire in recent weeks. (Over 30 hours so far.) It is a game you can take your time over, and play with just one hand on the mouse. I've been playing it at work, while eating my lunch. Also, for 30 minute sessions here and there.

I did wonder if it would be addictive and replayable like my experience with FTL. Happy to say that it does fill that niche quite well. Plays as good as a full release, even though it is still Early Access. Even more content should come (playing with a third different character) once the full game is released. Each different character reminds me of the different spaceships you unlock in FTL. And the Cards are similar to the FTL ship load-out.

Each play-through is very different due to the different types of cards you come across (and then choose which ones you want to add to your set.) Also the different types of Relics and Potions too. For instance, you can have a set of cards where you're favouring Poison as a way to deal with the monsters. Or another set of cards, where you're favouring Defence, blocking damage while chipping away at the enemy.

This game didn't p*ss me off like Darkest Dungeon did.

razing32I write this after a major DC I manage had a massive outage and I think to myself what I can play in the hour or so before bed.
And I realize I have no ideas.
What do you play when your eyeballs are falling out of your skull with exhaustion and you need to unwind ?

Dying Light
Alien: Isolation
Painkiller: Hell and Damnation
Serious Sam 3: BFE
