Relaxing games? Anonymous 03/05/2021 (Fri) 18:45:30 No. 3036
Do y’all know any games that are relaxing I’m getting bored playing apex legends and hitman 2 and 3
Machinarium and any of the Samorost games are super comfy.
Slime Rancher Stardew Valley Journey Factorio
(235.32 KB 1920x1080 3wTer55.jpg)
Osmos. pretty relaxing with the background music, and the ability to slow down time.
>>3055 Late is comfy, no bulli go back wherever you came from. >>3036 OP, look up flower on steam. One of my all time favorites. Originally came out on ps3 and has that 2009 calming psn vibe to it.
>>3039 Factorio can get pretty stressful if you like to take your time with stuff.

yume nikki, the visuals give it a weird but comfy atmosphere imo Although it is a horror game, it's very slow-paced and you can choose how you want to play. The story line is very chill to get through. It always manages to suck me in for hours
Minecraft Terraria Starbound Sims (2 & 3 are my go to) Little Big Planet Zelda
>>3115 Like anon said Yume Nikki or other Yume Nikki fangames like LCDDEM and Yume 2kki. Minecraft in peaceful or creative mode. Journey and Abzu, beautiful games Freddy Fish (point and click from my childhood with fishes in the ocean) Sam and Max (funny point&click) Grim Fandango Tiny & Big; Grandpa's Leftovers Boku No Natsuyami (Japan only games where you're a kid on summer vacation, finding bugs, talking with other kids and people, swimming, riding your bicycle, just chillin. >>3121 Not this tho, that's not relaxing man
>>3036 Super Mario Odyssey Animal Crossing Minecraft Valheim Also these as well >>3116
>>3167 Ah so you think youre the normal one in here, well I can really rest peacefully knowing that the masterrace's latest warrior is a rat that posts dicks on a website visted by not more than dozen people, all because he got his shit handed to him before. Stay mad
>>3135 >Freddy Fish (point and click from my childhood with fishes in the ocean) I remember those Humongous games too. I had Spy Fox in "Dry Cereal", and it came with demos of the some of the other games.
>>3171 This games where the shit when i was a lil kiddo. Loved playing them.

satisfactory slime rancher bloons TD 5/6
I'd recommend Outer Wilds. (Not Outer Worlds, common mistake) It's 90% relaxing and fun to explore, solve puzzles, and travel around in your wooden spaceship. The other 10% is a bit stressful, but you can do those last. It's a great game.
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne Shenzhen I/O Stardew Valley Terraria
Any input on space games? I'm looking for something where I can fly around planets and in space just to relax, no combat.
Corruption of Champions loli mod
Puzzle games are always a fun one
>>3523 I like tile-matching ones especially. I love Columns even though I'm not very good at it.
crayon physics deluxe
>>3502 The only thing I can really think of would be Space Engine.
replaying dead space late at night was a...weird experience. It was relaxing in a strange way, though...
(10.72 KB 320x200 pipeshot1.gif)
Pipe dream is pretty comfy.
>>3590 I remember playing the Windows version as a kid. I don't think I ever got that good at it. I think I played Rodent's Revenge and some Snake version more.
The Witness is pretty chill, frankly.
I really like synthetik and starsector but both might not be not relaxing for you.
(117.21 KB 1024x768 peaceful.jpg)
just finished Refunct, pretty relaxing game that you can play at your own pace. others i like: minecraft(obvious choice) Proteus Retrowave(by RewindApp) Grow Home Firewatch
>>3763 finally! some love for proteus. that game is beautiful.
(3.28 KB 640x480 0.png)
Found this Linux version of Taipan, an old BASIC game from the TRS-80 and Apple II days. It's pretty fun! Basically you have a ship and sail between cities to trade goods, run from or fight pirates, that sort of thing.
VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssDoRFu6CsM A surprisingly chill and funny game. Try opening a letsplay of it while overflowing with rage, you should be calm in a hour. Drunkards will probably like it. You work as a bartender in a futuristic city, and you chat with various people and listen to their problems. By the end of the game you are probably one of the most informed people in the city, simply by chatting a lot. News sites are garbage there.
>>3036 I just started Red Dead 2, really fucking good. I pulled my Xbox One out of storage to play it (3 years late) and it's really immersive. crazy
(149.68 KB 1080x1335 Kek.jpg)
>>3036 It may not be /comfy/ in the traditional sense, but Fallout 3 is one of my all time best escapist games. You can basically forget your life for a minimum of one week if you binge it.
>>4409 Hello, Red Dead guy here. I played half way through and put the Xbox back in storage at the end of the summer. I will get back into it soon, but still a good game.
>>5938 I just can not get into Todd's version of FO. To me canon Fallout is FO1&2, and FO:New Vegas.
(322.73 KB 1900x1069 im-anfang-zumindest-in-gris.jpg)
Gris is short but incredibly atmospheric. For something free online check out Universal Paperclips, it's a fun idle game for a lazy afternoon.
>>3502 Astroneer is fun, comfy and slow paced.
Cloudpunk is a really nice game I've been playing recently!
(504.50 KB 1920x1080 806257.jpg)
Hollow Knight is comfy as fuck and dark as the night. Love this game (I'm not into vidyas, playing 1 or 2 hours a week).
(848.76 KB 794x924 il_794xN.1673191856_3jlp.png)
>>5938 Damn, need to play it again. Liked a lot playing it all nights doing heroin when younger.
Powder Toy is pretty fun to mess around in. basically zero stress
100% orange juice.
Old-ass JRPGs. Dragon Quest specifically. Gonna go on a grand adventure to save the world and defeat the king of evil, but first I'm gonna spend 20 minutes stabbing slimes until I have enough money for a copper sword or something.

I learnt today that the upcoming rts game 'Sanctuary' is going to have naval units, which makes me really happy since I wasn't sure if we'd see any. I haven't been so excited waiting for a game to release since I was in elementary school, the rts genre desperately needs a spiritual succesor to SupCom FA and I'm pretty sure this is it >>3036 'Spybotics: The Nightfall Incident' is worth checking out, you can play it for free using Flashpoint. It's an old turn based strategy game from the early 2000s, actually I think flash games are super relaxing in general

Lately I'm playing Heretic, just the shareware version. It's pretty easy and fun.
>>6945 >the shareware version Never copy that floppy, anon.
>>6911 actually just read their FAQ and it seems they're not sure if they'll get naval units in, the scope of the game in general seems to depend on how well their kickstarter does this august, it honestly really sucks that developing an rts game is this difficult in [current year] otherwise I've just been playing diablo 3. turning my brain off and mindlessly mowing down demons is therapeutic. it hadn't occured to me just how dead this game is until today, when I hit top 1000 on the this year's solo wizard leaderboard (almost top 500!). I'm a really casual player so it's probably like 1000 people total have logged in to play as a wizard this year in NA, especially with that pay to win mess that is diablo immortal out

>>7136 can u imagine a /late/ doom server that would be cool. where people can just play the solo campaign together and the extras over and over
(3.37 KB 640x480 sw.png)
>>7165 The main problem is nowadays there isn't any single Doom engine, and they all got their own networking code and different servers. It was a lot easier back in the day when everyone was running DOS and connecting through DWANGO (which also allowed them to play other DOS games). But I never got into that, just did the basic modem play where you just dial your friend's house directly and then you drop back to a DOS prompt from your terminal software (most commonly Telix or Qmodem) and then start up DOOM.EXE with the correct command line switches for 2-player serial comms game. I also played some LAN games too, later on when I got a network card. That was fun! But the only way I played Doom over Internet was with Odamex around 2010-2013. That was nice, but when I tried to build Odamex a year ago or so, only the client compiled, the server browser didn't, so I gave up on all that. Anyway I found all these cool shareware games already installed on my computer. What's fun for me now is making my computer more oldschool, as close to back in the 90's as possible.
>>7169 There's always Zandronum/Doomseeker but I believe it needs modern software to run (aka; not DOS)
>>3036 I used to play firewatch. The art style there is just too comfy
Definitely CaveStory. One of the few indie games to actually understand the retro 8/16-bit style, even if it's not 100% authentic.
(196.90 KB 952x802 7fgmmhqndek61.png)
>>3036 OldSchool Runescape is peak Comfy Kino. >>7169 Can you post pics I like retro builds
(212.06 KB 1920x1080 cubietruck.png)
>>7272 My computer is actually just a little ARM system (pic related), and not an authentic retro computer. About the only "retro" thing about it is the 32-bit processor. So it's not very fast, and doesn't emulate x86 that well, which is why I'm using those game engine ports instead of running the original programs in DOSBox. Oddly enough Amiga, Atari ST, Sega Genesis, and emulators for other old 8/16 bit systems run pretty well on here though (except SNES for some reason). Yeah in fact even Sega 32X games run ok in PicoDrive. At one point I tried to buy an old Amiga computer from someone in a nearby city, but he wouldn't send me pictures of the mainboard or even confirm that it runs at all, so I gave up. Also I think at this point you need to have electronics repair equipment if you're even thinking about buying an old 80's computer. I'm betting a lot of people buy old stuff on ebay and such, then one day it doesn't turn on or work right and they just throw it in the closet and forget about it.
>>7279 I wish you well in your adventures to finding an authentic and working Amiga I personally really want one for the music trackers and such, the downsampling cannot be matched on any modern daw, at least as well as the Amiga can do.
(116.17 KB 828x828 spaz.jpg)
mfw got stuck on a game I already beat before, but can't remember how I did it
>>7279 SNES should run fine, which emulator are you using? bsnes being cycle accurate might be a bit much for the processor, but less accurate emulators are usually good enough for most snes games. How does the GBA fair considering it's also an ARM system?
(95.12 KB 647x340 dialup.jpg)
>>7417 I tried mednafen and some of the SNES retroarch cores (can't remember which), but those were all pretty slow. The GBA games run ok in mednafen, but the audio cuts in & out unless I'm using the OpenGL drivers & Mali userspace library. But I don't like to load those because they don't work reliably, and sometimes a game or emulator doesn't "detect OpenGL" even with all those drivers loaded (visible in "lsmod") and the LD_LIBRARY_PATH env var set to the directory where those Mali libs are. So I just gave up on OpenGL for this board, and run everything in software rendering, which is enough for all the other games & emulators I got. As it should be, since all these things used to run fine on the hardware I had 20 years ago. I even played through all of Quake II on a Pentium 120 with plain old SVGA card, and that was plenty good enough to run the game at the lowest resolution (320x240) in software rendering mode. On that same computer, I could run the original Quake game at a slightly higher resolution with good framerate (not all the way up to 640x480, but somewhere near the middle of those two resolutions), but Quake II only gave you that one option if you didn't have a 3D card. And when Doom ports started to appear, I could also run them at somewhat higher resolutions, like with Quake 1. I think lxdoom (from http://games.moria.org.uk) was the first one I tried, around 1999 or 2000. Looks like the download isn't on that site anymore, and I doubt it would compile on modern systems anyway, but they still have all their old level reviews and other stuff (and also that puzzle game "Kye"). I played through The Darkening II reviewed on that site earlier this year and that was a lot of fun!
(2.51 MB 960x720 wads.png)
Hehe found some of my old wads on a backup drive from 2011-2012. Only one of these ever got finished and released. And one of these was my very first attempt at making Doom levels!
>>7428 DOPE!
>>7428 These look like actual genuine attempts, all i remember doing with makeing my own doom levels is like drawing squares in like whatever doom map editor/maker i was using.
(1.06 MB 640x480 e2m9.png)
>>7442 Yeah that's pretty normal for first attempts. But once you get used to the editor and the kind of stuff you can make, it gets a lot more interesting. For a really comprehensive guide/tutorial, you can grab the Tricks of the DOOM Gurus CDROM from https://archive.org/details/doom-cds Also here's another level I forgot. This one was made blocky on purpose, just a challenge (being constrained to arbitrary limits).

On second though, I don't even see the book in that ISO file, weird! Well I didn't get it from there myself, but rather from cd.textfiles.com (which is currently not accessible for me). Oh well, have this cool 1970's picture of the Oregon Trail authors instead. The dude in the middle is holding the entire BASIC source code listing for the game (it was pretty small, since this was only a text version, long before the fancier graphics remakes).
(3.83 KB 640x480 basic.png)
Yeah, only 576 or 618 lines of BASIC, once you trim out the REM (comment) lines.
Going to try to mentions games people haven't said yet. Kentucky Route Zero Stacklands Little Witch In The Woods CloudPunk Tunic Zuma/Zuma Deluxe Cat Goes Fishing
>>7443 >Yeah that's pretty normal for first attempts. its just an old habit, to start things and never finish them, i've been getting to break this, but whenever im depressed it always comes back to bite me, so i just don't attempt to do anything that requires effort and just attempt to chill, whenever im depressed. I know its not the best but it works.
>>7447 >Kentucky Route Zero loved this game, I thought about suggesting it earlier, but decided against it - it takes a lot of inspiration from 20th century literature (and art in general) which lots of people flat out hate
