    It is quite easy to kick back with point-and-click adventures. Botanicula, Machinarium and other games made by that dev are good for atmosphere and general loveliness.

    Best Regards,

    As long as I have an FAQ to hand or it's just frustration waiting to happen.

    Machinarium has a hint system. It does require you to play a boring minigame though, to discourage you from using it too often. I seem to remember Botanicula having something similar, but I'm not sure.

    A golf game perhaps? I spent months chilling to PGA on the sega megadrive back in the day, and i'm sure you have some decent ones that are a bit more modern?

    There'll be no golf here. None.

    Orbital on the GBA was the most relaxing game I ever played... and also at times incredibly difficult and frustrating. Awesome game overall though.

    I used to play it on the GBA (with headphones!) while standing on a crowded tokyo train at rush hour.. and it was rather relaxing (except when I died).

    I've seen a couple of games on steam that seem to be inspired by it, but they mainly seem to have direct control, the cool thing about orbital was you controlled the whole game with just 2 buttons - increase gravity and decrease gravity.

    The boxed version also comes with an incredibly dense and tiny sketch walkthrough booklet (it's a bit smaller than my hand) that on occasion grants a clue, but mostly indecipherable gibberish. The writing on the left is in an alien language that likely says ‘Ahahahahaha! Ahahaha! Ha! Ahahahaha! Mwhahahaha! You need a walkthrough for the walkthrough!’ and so forth.

    Omigosh, that is adorable. The picture on the right hand side there is what the in-game hint system gives you.

    For me, loading Dredmor before bed is asking to miss hours of sleep. FTL, on the other hand, seems easier to drop at will. I tend to think it's because your doom is more certain than in Dredmor. In DoD, I tend to care a lot more about winning. Not sure why.

    I always lose both in DoD and FTL, so there's that. I've given up trying to win either of them.
