Recommendation: Castles In The Sky
Windows | Mac
Sublime. Castles In The Sky is a very short game that makes up for its length with an injection of bliss and beauty and calm. The only mechanic present in the game is jumping higher and collecting music notes, with bits of heartfelt poetry popping in here and there. It could be argued that a video game is not the best medium for this experience but the jumping is sublime and even the lightest amount of interactivity forces you to pay attention and get sucked in. For a longer, better description that will make you absolutely run out and purchase the game, see Cara Ellison’s review over here.

Reasons You Might Not Like This
There isn't a whole lot going on in terms of gameplay. If you're not open to the gentleness that defines the game then it just won't work.
