Because of COVID-19, many people’s lives have been completely upended this year, and the list of things to be worried about just keeps getting longer, whether it’s the health of your family or the security of your job. All that stress can be overwhelming, so it’s important to find ways to disconnect and recharge when you can. PC games store Humble Bundle is hosting a new games sale to help you do just that: The De-Stress and Disconnect sale offers relaxing, contemplative games to help you step away and escape into another world for a while. It’s a sale worth checking out, as some real gems are included, and nearly all of them redeem on Steam.
There’s nothing like a good story to help you take your mind off things, and some of the best narrative-driven games in recent years feature in the sale. The complete seasons of Life is Strange ($4) and Life is Strange 2 ($14.79) are up for grabs, along with a prequel game, Life is Strange: Before the Storm ($3.39). All three are worth playing if you’re into choice-driven games where your actions have real consequences. Gone Home, a fantastic first-person exploration game, is down to $7.49. Other must-play games include the supernatural mystery Oxenfree for $4 and side-scrolling adventure Night in the Woods for $11.
Of course, sometimes you just want to distract yourself by performing everyday tasks or jobs inside a video game, and the sale has plenty of options for that as well. You can pursue your dreams of becoming a restaurant chef in Cook, Serve, Delicious ($2.49) or tear down and remodel houses in House Flipper ($15). If you feel like building up a successful farm business, Farm Manager 2018 will suit your needs nicely for just $5, or you can hit the lake to practice your casting game with Ultimate Fishing Simulator, available for $8.
