The 7 Most Relaxing VR Games

We all live busy, stressful lives which makes the brief time we have to relax all the more important. Whether you’re watching a quick episode of your favourite TV show or casually wandering through the latest open-world adventure, we all have our own ways to unwind. VR can be a great facilitator of this, combining meditation practices with gaming. So for those needing a quick destress, here are some of the most relaxing VR games.

Most Relaxing VR Games

When it comes to a relaxing experience, the general theme tends to be tranquil music and idyllic environments. Unless you find the likes of Ghost of Tabor relaxing, then it’s highly likely you want the complete opposite. You want to be able to sit back on your sofa or even lie in bed as you’re guided into a state of absolute bliss.

So in no particular order, the following selection will help chill you out (hopefully). Whether you’re on Meta Quest, PSVR 2 or PCVR headsets.

Guided Meditation VR

Guided Meditation VR

Looking to float on a cloud after a stressful workday? Guided Meditation VR is all about adding some peace and calm, with 30+ hours of guided meditations focusing on Anxiety, Depression, Maternity, Resilience, Sleep, or Zen. Featuring over 200 relaxing audio tracks and 40+ scenic environments, it’s the perfect escape.

Guided Meditation VR can guide you on this journey or you can customise the experience. Turn the music off, add a timer or test out Motion mode, like a lazy river through each soothing scene.

You can’t get much more relaxed than lying in bed, and that’s where the mixed-reality game Pillow comes in. Lay back and enjoy four MR dreams from the comfort of your bed, you don’t even need controllers as it supports Meta Quest’s hand tracking. Look up at your ceiling and Stargaze into an interactive night sky. Or how about a bit of gravity-defying MR fishing?

Or like others on this list, enjoy a nice mediative experience that uses your breath to transform your reality.

What better way to relax than with the ancient martial art of Tai Chi? Cubicle Ninjas created Guided Tai Chi a few years ago, but it’s still a wonderfully calm and tranquil experience. There are over 200 Tai Chi-inspired workouts across 20 beautiful nature settings to enjoy, helping your mind and body.

From quick 3-minute sessions to a full hour, you can tailor the experience how you wish. Or you can always try the Flow Mode, 100 meditative sessions which are perfect for Tai Chi beginners.

Maloka is a mindfulness app all about maximizing the “activation of low Beta and Theta brain waves.” Step onto your own personal island where you’ll find 100+ unique experiences guided by renowned mindfulness teachers. These can include Breathwork, Body scans and Sound baths, finding an approach that works for you.

Like most mediation practices Maloka is about the journey, rather than the destination. The more you try, the more your island flourishes into a vibrant oasis of plants, sculptures, and more. You even have your own personal Spirit who grows with you.

Probably the most well-known relaxation app is TRIPP. It’s a subscription-based app that gives you access to 100+ fully immersive meditation experiences, recently winning the Gamesbeat 2024 Game Changers award.

The regularly updated app features awe-inspiring worlds and landscapes to enjoy calm meditations, breathing exercises and multi-day challenges to support your well-being. Trouble sleeping? There are sleeping exercises that can help you drift off, just remember to take your headset off before you do!

Featuring six categories of emotional and cognitive states, Liminal provides its own unique twist on relaxing gaming. Whether you’re after something for Energy, Sleep, Focus, Calm, Relief or even Awe, Liminal is all about chilling out and having some fun at the same time.

Liminal VR’s team of neuroscientists and psychologists have designed an ever-growing catalogue with free experiences that rotate weekly.

The latest “playground for your mind” is Headspace XR. One of the few titles here that support multiplayer, Nexus Studios’ latest project means you can relax by yourself or meet up with friends and explore beautiful worlds. There are immersive guided meditations, mood-boosting games and physical exercises!

More of a mindfulness metaverse rather than a solitary game, Headspace XR can help release tension and build healthy habits. Plus it looks pretty too.
