Stardew Valley is one of my favorite stress relieving games of the last few years, but I’ve played it so many times, it just isn’t the same anymore.
I’ve tried other games and they haven’t clicked, for one reason or another. This includes games like Graveyard Keeper (overwhelmed by too many systems), Animal Crossing, Ooblets (may give this one a go again), The Good Life, and I only gotten a short way into Dragon Quest Builders (I’ve played both one and two).
I love the idea of Rune Factory, but I have the newest one and couldn’t get invested.
I think Slime Rancher is seen as one, right? I used to not care at all about these kind of games, but Slime Rancher changed that completely. Definitely check that out. There’s a Game Preview of 2, so see if that’s your jam.
New Disney Dreamlight Valley game is decent. I haven’t played Rune Factory 5, but I played through 4 twice and enjoyed it. If you have a particular type of brain that enjoys “number go up” or “goopy goblin brain” as my friend puts it, you might give Nobody Saves the World or Rogue Legacy 2 a shot.
Vampire Survivors is a very good PC game that I don’t think is too demanding hardware-wise.
I’m in Grow: The Evertree, but I have no idea what I was doing when I put it down, so I’m just wandering around. Is there a place in that game to go to get an idea what to do? I’d started building houses for people, but that’s all I remember.
I started Spiritfarer, too, but bounced off.
To the next responder, I beat Rogue Legacy 2 (main story, that is).
