When you're a teacher, you have two options when summer hits. You can get a summer job for the extra cash, or you can try to read Harry Wong's First Days of School. I took the second option and was mostly successful...but you can only read professional development books for so many hours a day. Eventually, you need a break. If you're in a thoughtful mood, which many new teachers are after a long first few years of teaching, you might like FAR: Lone Sails.
It's quiet. Maybe it's too quiet. You are going to be tempted to boot up Spotify or listen to a podcast while playing, but you have to resist the urge. The quiet is all part of the experience. The game takes place after the end of the world, where you appear to be the only person left alive. Your goal is to take a massive hulk of a vehicle across the wastes to the ocean...at which point something you hope something is going to happen. The melancholy you feel through the game is of the sweet variety...as you use your old mailbox for fuel and gradually gather materials for your ever growing landshark.
My reasoning for not cranking your favorite playlist while playing is it takes you out of the moment. I finished the entire game in a night in a kind of meditative trance. When there is music, as long as you have let the game take you in, you are immersed in it to a shocking degree. When you explore the ruins of the earth, it is often done in quiet...perhaps with your radio trying to serenade you from a distance.
I found the game on Steam and would highly recommend it. Brew some tea, get some noise-cancelling headphones in, and let the winds take you.
Have fun, and happy trails :)
