I’m getting a Steam Deck soon and would like to buy a stress-free relaxing yet fun game to play on it while they are on sale. I was thinking about Littlewood or Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles. Which would you choose? Or would you choose something else? I do already have Stardew Valley and My Time at Portia. I’m thinking something along the lines of Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon, but on sale for <$10.

Here's a relaxing and not at all stressful game giveaway for your trouble.

I can't believe there is a game for that too. 🤣

I still remember the original Watch Paint Dry come to Steam by vulnerabilities in their spaghetti code. Steam has lowered standards that exploits aren't necessary any longer.

Yonder is something my wife played. She enjoyed it as it's 100% stress free, but it does get you longing for some combat at times. I don't know much about Littlewood, but it's a game I personally wanna play.

Between the two, I think Yonder is the better choice for a stress-free game. Both games have you gathering materials to craft useful stuff, but Littlewood seems to lean more towards city management while Yonder leans towards exploration and viewing the beautiful environment. I did briefly consider buying Littlewood myself as a simpler city building game, but decided to go with the game Settlement Survival because it is similar to the game Banished I really enjoyed.

Abzu is quite relaxing, and it's only $6.99. That's a very nice number.
Spring Falls is an especially relaxing puzzle game, and it's currently $4.19 [$5.92 with OST, which is a must]. I recently played through that and was quite pleased by my time with it. It's quite lovely and the music is wonderful, too.
Little Inferno is a pretty good game to just chill with. You burn things that react to fire in their own unique ways, and that unlocks other stuff to burn. I really love this one. $3.74 is a stellar price for it.
The dev also makes World of Goo, another relaxing game that costs only $10.04.
A Mortician's Tale is a very laid back and positive look at the death industry. I've only played a little bit of it, but it's a beautiful game so far. I highly recommend getting it with its soundtrack at $3.36.

A Mortician's Tale is very underrated. Very short but very calm.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/351030/Pixel_Puzzles_Ultimate_Jigsaw/ is a very stress-free game, and it is also FTP with purchasable packs that are on sale. I don't know how it plays on Steam Deck, though.

Audiosurf 2 is an awesome game to relax to after a long day. It has also been updated to work on Steam Deck.
