Cozy Games On Xbox Gamepass April 2023

It’s the beginning of the month, so you know what that means! That’s right, the time of the month where I recommend five cozy games you can currently play on Xbox Gamepass.

This has been a staple to my blog now since I started in January, as I’m someone who lives practically paycheck to paycheck and as I’m quite budget conscious, splurging on new Nintendo Switch games every month, isn’t financially possible for me at times, and I know plenty of you can relate to this.

If you want to know why xbox gamepass is perfect for cozy gamers on a budget, then you can read my article.

Soccer Story

Now even if you’re someone who’s not into soccer (aka football), like myself, you will still enjoy this game. In this world, football has been banned since something called the calamity stripped apart the foundations of football. So no one is allowed to play it, let alone even look at a ball, until now, when a magical soccer ball finds you and you’re tasked with essentially being the saviour of soccer. It’s a physics- driven adventure RPG, which I’m sure plenty of you will love.


I know people might not associate Valheim with being strictly a cozy game as such, however, it kind of reminds me of Minecraft, where you can gather materials, build your base and just survive. In this survival sandbox game, you play as a slain viking, having to prove themselves fit for Valhalla. To do this, you must survive the many monsters and bosses set loose in this world.

You can take this game at your own pace. Defeating bosses in any way you see fit and craft your own base as per your specifications. Also I will go on the record to say that this game has one of the best soothing soundtracks ever in modern gaming!

A Memoir Blue

If you’re looking for something that is a little more story driven and only roughly two hours long, then you may enjoy A Memoir Blue. I reviewed this recently (click here), so you can read a full review here.The game revolves around a swimmer, who, depressed, seems to be reliving moments of her past of her and her mother in very fantastical settings.

The Sims 4

Do I really need to tell you what The Sims is? The base game is now free to play for all gamers, including Xbox owners, who can get this via Gamepass. You can enjoy your own narrative driven story, playing out the lives of sims in whatever dramatic fashion you see fit. Me, I’m what they call a ‘black widow’ simmer, marrying rich sims and killing them off in the most dramatic ways. Also available on Gamepass at the moment is the ‘Get to Work’ expansion.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion

I’ve added this game to the list as a reminder that I really need to get around to playing this! From what I can see, Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a cutesy action-adventure game where you play as a turnip boy who gets convicted of tax evasion and must go on an adventure to stop the corrupt mayor. It’s a top down game that almost feels reminiscent of old school Zelda titles. The game looks adorable and I could definitely see many people snuggling up on the sofa to this!
