Hello Games

Here are 7 chill games on Xbox Game Pass you need to play ASAP

6. House Flipper

The real-life housing market is a mess right now. But House Flipper gives you the experience of renovating homes to sell for profit without all the real-world hassles.


5. Stardew Valley

In Stardew Valley, players are tasked with running a farm, while also forming relationships with the townsfolk. The game does include light combat, but it’s optional.

4. Unpacking

There isn’t anything quite like Unpacking. In it, you unpack the contents of boxes and place them into a new home, while learning about the main character’s past. It’s certainly a clever way to tell a story.

3. Coffee Talk

Technically a visual novel, Coffee Talk places you in the shoes of a barista who completes orders for customers while getting to know the game’s fascinating cast of characters.

2. No Man’s Sky

While No Man’s Sky certainly has its stressful moments, you can avoid them entirely by simply exploring. Making your way through a planet to gather resources is just as satisfying as it is soothing.
