The 30 BEST Cozy Games on Xbox Game Pass This Year!

Cozy Gaming has become increasingly popular over the past 3 years thanks to games like Unpacking, but coziness is quite subjective. So how do you find the game that’s right for you?

By picking up your controller and playing lots of games until one sticks, that’s how!

That’s what I love about the Xbox Gamepass. I don’t have to waste my hard-earned money buying individual games and hoping I like them. Instead, I can try out hundreds for one flat rate a month.

Though I do get that you might be short on time. Not everyone has hours upon hours to play video games every day. So if it’s short cozy games you’re after read 8 Short and Sweet Cozy Games on Xbox Game Pass first. 

The games featured on this list are from the Game Pass Ultimate collection which is a mixture of PC and Console, so not every game may be available on your preferred platform.

Side note

The selection of games offered on Xbox changes regularly. The games on this list were correct at the time of publishing.

Coffee Talk Episode 2

Dust off your coffee machine because it’s time to return to Coffee Talk in the second episode of the much-loved coffee brewing and heart-to-heart talking simulator.

Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly follows on from the original game where you, the barista, serve warm drinks to old and new customers. Immerse yourself in this relaxing coffee shop atmosphere by playing those lo-fi chillhop beats while the rain pours down outside. 

There is now an addition of a lost and found. Can you find all the storylines by returning items to their correct owners? And don’t forget to mix new ingredients for drinks like Pink Spice and more!

Unpacking is a casual, Zen puzzle game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Throughout eight house moves, you experience a sense of intimacy with a character you never see and a story you’re never told.

It’s a casual puzzle game that lends itself better played on PC than on console but as it’s free on Game Pass I do recommend giving it a play.

Superliminal

Superliminal is a mind-bending first-person puzzle game that will make you think outside of the box.  Originally released in July 2020 this game has grown in popularity but is often overlooked as a cozy game.

My fiance loved Superliminal and he highly recommends it to anyone who enjoys relaxing optical illusions. Take your time to explore as there are collectibles throughout.

Tunic

Tunic is an epic adventure about a tiny fox. If you’re looking for a Legend of Zelda-esque game with battles and deep legends Tunic will surprise you. 

Not a slow game by any means and probably not cozy to most people, but if you want more of a challenge I highly recommend this stand-out game release from 2022.

Little Witch in the Woods
