Even if you’re not in the US this weekend, there’s always time to learn how best to support your peers and yourself. I can help you with the latter – here’s my short list of five fun, completely free games on Steam.

fishing planet

Maybe poking dinosaurs in the eye with spears is not your thing. You may prefer to hook an ignorant freshwater fish right into its poor adorable snout. To this I say, try fishing planetalways free fishing simulator.

Like American Truck Simulatora game that is not free on Steam (it costs $5), fishing planet it’s a surprisingly mundane, objectively worst interpretation of the real things people do in their real lives. Unlike real fishing, you won’t be able to fry your prey in crispy fritto misto or watch the river reflect and finally feel at home, made by nature. Instead, you should be staring at your screen and gaining XP for reeling in some writhing catfish. But isn’t that wonderful in itself?

No barriers to entry fishing planet– you don’t need a boat or a buddy – all you need is a computer and the willingness to let the free repetitive game get you into a meditative state. This weekend is the perfect opportunity to do it, you will have plenty of time to relax with the fish.

Wordplay: Episode 0

Typically, the games I play most on the weekends are word games, usually wordle as well as in New York Times spelling beewhich I am very mildly obsessed with. Wordplay: Episode 0free demo version, takes the word puzzles literally and you play as the puzzle solving character “I” in the concept is very Looks like Baba is you.

It’s a bit of a wannabe, but still a fun puzzle game, though you might not want to play at full strength. word game for $34.99 if you don’t know Chinese.

If you want, Episode 0 It can be a good way for a monolingual child to discover new language horizons, or to spend some time immersing themselves in Chinese grammar.

Virtual cottage

Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a weekend without work, so if you have a few projects to work on, Virtual cottage is the perfect companion. It’s more of a productivity companion than a “game” – it involves setting your goal and time frame, and displays a cozy, musical cottage with controllable rain sounds and a girl typing on a computer in solidarity. While it’s still running, the timer cannot be paused or stopped unless you exit the game, so Virtual cottage is a more exciting and more motivating version “lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study” YouTube stream that seems to draw inspiration.


That’s all for my list. What will you be playing this weekend?
