Monterona is a casual building game set in cute little Italian streets.

Build and decorate cute little streets inspired by your grandma’s letters. Place colorful houses, trees and decorations, and my favorite part… you can even add little animated people! Once you’ve built your streets you can take a gentle stroll around and experience it the way your grandma would have done.

There are no goals and no pressure.

I went to Italy for the first time in 2018 with my mum and took an unexpected boat trip out to Murano which is famous for its beautiful glass. But by far my favorite island was Burano because it has these cute colourful houses and this game very much reminds me of them.

In Townscaper, you create charming towns on the water in a relaxing, sandbox environment. Its minimalist design makes it easy to pick up and play, perfect for a few mindless minutes of creativity. While I found myself wanting a bit more depth, it’s still a go-to for those looking for a simple and soothing building experience.

Dorfromantik is a charming puzzle-building game that invites you to create picturesque landscapes by placing tiles.

So here you’re not building houses, rather you’re building a landscape filled with villages, lush forests, and winding rivers. The goal is to connect tiles in ways that meet specific objectives, like forming a cluster of trees or a stretch of connected houses.

My husband stole my Nintendo Switch to play this game. He became utterly obsessed with it! Watching him discover tiles I had never found myself made me want to play it even more. It’s a must-try for anyone who loves cozy games with a creative twist.

Build your own street in this cozy, casual management sim.

Unlock and customize buildings, manage your shops, and maximize the happiness of your villagers. Build ramen shops, boba cafes, bookstores, and more, and customize them to match the aesthetic of your street.

There are several missions for you to complete which will take around 2-4 hours. But if it’s been a long day and you just want to relax there’s also a sandbox mode that allows you to get creative in the peaceful, cozy world without the stress of objectives.

Preserve is a puzzle, nature-building game.

The goal is to build a flourishing ecosystem by placing unique biomes and covering them in plants, rocks, trees, and animals to create the perfect symbiosis. Choose from alpine forests, arid deserts and even tropical reefs to build your beautiful ecosystem.

You’re given a variety of cards to choose from that will change your tiles. When you get enough points you’ll obtain a new puzzle piece. It’s very simple but looks overall complicated. I was put off at first but once I understood the point system all the puzzles slotted into place as they say.

It reminds me very much of Dorfromantic but with a lot more customization.
