Cozy, Relaxing and Cute Free Games You Can Find On Steam!

Everyone always needs more coziness and relaxation! I'm inspired to find lots of good quality free games in my favourite genres! Some are nice & short for when you don't feel like you've got much energy to get into something big, you can just enjoy a little story/experience! There's also a good amount that are very replayable or longer! I'll only be including the more positively-rated games, most are Overwhelmingly or Very Positive!

A cozy game can be a relaxing puzzle, an easier platformer, an atmospheric adventure, a thoughtful or sweet visual novel, a creative sim game or just something silly & fun! They're usually not difficult or frustrating and would have no elements of fear or chaos! They let you just chill out :) Some of these may be more on the cute/fun side than cozy so keep your preferences in mind!

Would love to hear your thoughts about any of them! Feel free to recommend more to the thread if you know any or give a simple bump! ʕ • ﻌ•ʔっ♡

I hope you'll find something nice and discover a love for cozy games too!

You're welcome! It was lots of fun, I found many more new ones for myself and I'm really happy to share them 🙊 You can go to Filter through your library and put in store tags like "Free to Play" & "Relaxing" etc to find them really easily! Don't worry at all if you can't find any :)

I’ve been playing A Short Hike every night for the past two nights, and it’s absolutely wonderful! It’s adorable, funny, and actually very fun to play. I’d been wanting to play it for quite a while, and someone was kind enough to send it as a gift. I feel like it is the perfect game for this list.

If you haven’t heard of this game, I recommend watching this one-minute overview. It’s what got me hooked in the first place!

You are an absolute hero for this. I thought I knew about a decent amount of free cozy games but I've just discovered so many more thanks to you! 💖

One I would propose adding to the list would be Resonance of the Ocean. Really short but still a nice, laidback sorta puzzle-y little thing.
Also, I know it's probably not everyone's idea of cozy, but I have to mention Emberfate as well because I love it and it really channels the nostalgia of hanging out with some guildies after school/work ^^

Hmm well most are horror related I'm afraid but i also have some VNs and some detective/P&C games left. I'll have a look this weekend and send them to you via Steam.

I love some light horror found in fantasy/supernatural or the kind in something detective, mystery, drama or adventure :) I watch a lot of shows in those genres! I'm gonna take a look at the kind of games you love to play and see what I have! It won't be too much since I'm obsessed with the cozy games and most of what I found is here :D

Thank you so much these are all so perfect! Almost every one has been added! I would've put in Cookie Clicker and Re:call but they don't appear free to me :( Inspired by all your lovely recs I created 2 new categories for Relationship Visual Novels and Arcade-like games for those soft artstyle/casual difficulty games :)

These are definitely my favourites!! They're so cute and unique!
TODO: today
Fayburrow (so pretty and I love the fantasy detective theme)
Fujiwara Bittersweet
GemCrusty
HoloCure (I don't watch vtubers but it does look very adorable and fun!)
Life After Magic
Little Man Has A Day (read some reviews and it sounds like such a sweet message)
Loading Story
Missing Pieces (love the alien theme)
Moose Lost In The Woods (so friggin cute!)

Runescape is something really special to me too :D Though I haven't played the newer version like this, a few years ago I was obsessed (again) to Old School Runescape! I'd love to try this one it looks beautiful 🙊 I also remember playing Peggle on my iPod Nano when I was like 7 lol! Thank you so much again and for helping me with the categories! ♡

Ohh my bad! I made this list at the top of my head and must've misremembered! Very glad I could be of help, though. 💘 Arcade / Danmaku games are so nice for casual 15 minute playing and turning your brain off after a long day. Especially if they're super cute on top lol.

Peggle is THE game that immediately takes me back to secretly playing video games during computer science class. :D

Oh that would have been a good idea 🙊 Too bad you can't edit a poll afterwards but I suppose that would skew the results! I would probably choose all too, like when people ask "dogs or cats" I want to say both cause I love them all :D I chose Adventure/RPG though :)

Thank you this looks cute :D Added it! From the reviews it seems like those 15 levels can be about 10 hours worth which is pretty good :)

here's another jigsaw, actually free, not just a demo with a ton of paid dlc or in-app purchases, like some of the titles (jigsaw or otherwise) above. also has online co-op.

and a few more excellent or good enough titles, actually free as well. they're all puzzle and/or adventures, some might've been mentioned already.

Thank you so much for all of these really nice puzzle recs 😊 I'm especially excited for Move 'n' Bloom, such a cute artstyle :) I really love all those colourful voxel ones too!

you can say I specialize in puzzlers, have reviews for most of these, and it's a real shame all those voxel ones (from the same dev) and move 'n' bloom (and forgot to link dawn of a soul, his other great game) were all paid, cheap and done well, but got zero attention and were eventually made free. and still nobody gives a fuck about them.

Yeah I'm part of your puzzle group! I added Dawn of a Soul too, hopefully they get at least a bit of attention here :) Maybe some don't think the cheaper/free games are worth their time, but they can sometimes have even more heart and creativity put into them! The bigger devs & publishers just have themselves in the door already, so they don't have to make them such a low price like smaller, unsupported devs do

pricing is very tricky and like most things, pretty much impossible to do right. if it's $1 it's still either too expensive (I played similar things for free), or it must be shit because price and quality famously go together. and one thing selling for x doesn't mean a similar one will sell the same or more for half price. look at dorfromantik and all the clones (with dorf itself a ripoff of islanders to begin with). the former is expensive and sells well, you could buy 5 similar games for the same price, yet none of them have the same numbers combined.

and of course content without context. why pay $5 for 50 levels when another game has 100 levels for $3, even if they're completely different things. free stuff often attracts more people but not if it's a niche game in a niche genre, though I don't think it's a bad thing. I'd rather have 5 useful(ish) reviews than 500 useless/ascii/meme ones.
