This War of Mine is too depressing for me to ever play.

I sincerely would not call Limbo, INSIDE, This War of Mine and Lifeline relaxing, having played all of them. Limbo's challenging, especially if you're going for full completion. INSIDE is a wonderful game, but set in bleak, depressing and, some times, disturbing dystopia. This War of Mine is angst-y and involves too much survival and sad subplots. Lifeline conveys the feeling that it requires some kind of urgency, gets your heart pumping.

Overall: just don't play games before you sleep... haha

Not listed but I highly recommend: Small Viridi iconViridi

Alto's Adventure and the next episode Alto's Odyssé are really beautiful games (I have a preference for the soundtrack of Alto's Adventure however). When you hit the Zen mode and have a headphone... It's kind of magic.
I don't know how it is on App Store but on Android Alto's isn't commercial but freemium.

all apps are commercial. Only one freemium and that is not in android. Any free ones for android?


Seems like the freemium one, is new on android.
