Relax with these five hour-long soothing scenes in Minecraft

I'm all about the Rainy Swamp

I played hundreds of hours of Minecraft in the years after its original release, but hadn't returned again until recently. It turns out the standalone expansion I needed was a son. He's six years in development and today I introduced him to a private Minecraft multiplayer server for the first time. Exploring, building, and the vibes are all as wonderful as I remember.

Perfect timing: Mojang have just released a series of Minecraft "Soothing Scenes". There are five in total and each one is an hour-long video featuring a recreation of a Minecraft setting, from rainy swamp to cosy fireplace, to help you unwind.

Look, you don't need a lot of words from me to know whether you need this in your life or not. Personally, it's a welcome balm after wrangling with Microsoft accounts for half the day. I've embedded all five below so you can take your pick.

I've also been finding RPS soothing today - for example, our guide to Minecraft's The Warden was extremely calming the first time the terrifying beast crawled out of the ground while I was in a cave.
