I sat down over a few nights last week and destressed by playing through a large chunk of Rollercoaster Tycoon, and it’s been a really great experience. The first level, Forest Frontiers, was a real doozy since I haven’t played this game in literal years, but you can watch the very chill videos and listen/watch me learn how to make the rollercoasters again.
There’s something really beautiful about this game, and I can’t quite put my finger. You have to be on top of the numbers of the game constantly, but it also kind of just moves forward at a direct pace. You can only react and build in response to the unnameable forces that are operating on your park, and I think that strangeness from on high to be really engaging.
