Five Relaxing Games

Sometimes you just want to slump in you chair, load up a simple game with calming music, and relax. While the game might be challenging, frustration is never around the corner, because you’re too relaxed to get worked up by the difficulty.

 

4 Differences

This game made a previous list, but its atmosphere is undeniable. Spot the four differences in each dynamic scene set to relaxing atmospheric music. Watch clouds drift lazily by and airplanes soaring slowly to their destinations.

Starlight & Starlight 2

Move the stars around as you try to find the right perspective to view each constellation. The first two Starlight games are set to relaxing piano music.

Armor Logic 2

Solve nonograms of while listening to cool jazz. Or just leave the music on in the background while you go about other things.

Echogenesis

While this is not a “game”, Echogenesis is a relaxing interactive experience. Modify the music as you explore different landscapes. Click, drag, and move the cursor mouse around. Listen and watch the flow of the music and the creatures and elements in the environment change.

Symphony

In a similar vein, listen to the music change as you get closer to solving each level in this minimalist game. Volumes rise as you fill the colored circles with energy. Your efforts are rewarded with the full song at the end of each movement.

The Armor Games team had an amazing time on our paintball day! From South Vietnam, to Baghdad, to Kuwait, SC Village was an amazing paintball park. I am sure there will be additional paintball days in the future. This was a very enjoyable experience besides that fact that all of us in office will be sore and bruised until the end of the week!

Some of you may be familiar with the disastrous floods that have been going on in Australia. Not only that, but the country was hit by a very intense cyclone having many fear for their lives. This was something Australia could have not expected nor been prepared for. Our good friends at Jazza Studios, who are located in Australia, have started a donation to help raise money for the disaster.  100% of the funds raised will be donated to supporting relief efforts.

Perfect K.O.L.M.I.A.M. Speed Run

Watching this made me so happy I could sing.

When I see things like this it really makes me feel great about what I do, this guy perfected the gameplay and his knowledge of the levels is legendary. I don’t even think I’ve ever completed challenge mode without dying at least twice, and I made the thing!

Well done Mr makspayne!
