Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley, released by Concerned Games, is one of my personal favourites because its so simple to play.

It is an open-ended country-life RPG with a storyline that begins when your character inherits their grandfathers overgrown farm.

Your mission? To turn the overgrown farm into a thriving home with healthy animals and growing crops.

To make it even better, you can choose from different mods and, if you play the game on PC, you can even change the look of the game.

Good Pizza, Great Pizza

Developed by TapBlaze, Good Pizza, Great Pizza is a really exciting indie game where you fulfil pizza orders, unlock fun ingredients and are given tips and tricks to running your business.

Due to the stunning art and relaxing music, it is truly hard to not play this game.

If you require some genuinely nice people and good (or great) food, then this game will be the ultimate stress-relief for you.

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure

While this game only takes around 4 hours to complete, it is completely worth it.

During the week duration, you, Alba, are visiting your grandparents in Spain while on a quest to conserve the wildlife by stopping the construction of a hotel in the nature reserve.

To complete this game, you will need to identify creatures around the reserve, repair anything you find broken, and pick up trash around the island.

This is truly a heart-warming game that carries an extremely important message – that a young girl can do whatever she sets her mind to.

Alto’s Adventure

If you’re more into endless runner games, then Alto’s Adventure is perfect for you.

Your goal is to catch all of your escaped llamas in the snow – with your only form of transport being skies.

Along the way, you will find small villages, ride through woodlands, and explore ruins with beautiful ever-changing backgrounds.

The way this game keeps you both challenged and entertained will engage you for hours!
