Does anyone have a good suggestion to a (PC) game that is quick to fire up, runs in a window and offers some distraction for 5-10 minutes at a time while I wait for docker builds to complete, deployments to finish etc? Just braindead shit, like Clash of Clans on mobile for instance.

    Any online flash like mini game?

    Or maybe, just maybeeeeee, optimize the build to take less time, or change your work flow to not requires full docker image builds?

    @magicMirror not too much I can do about our AWS CI/CD deployment time. But this is not just to fill those minutes, it's nice to have a break now and then too.

    Knightmare tower is my sugestion. It's not free, but it's brain dead fun.

    Could try Kingdom New Lands or Kingdom Two Crowns (but the last one is only on steam due to multiplayer implementation)

    Youtube. I like videos about world history. They're kind of thought provoking, but ultimately brain dead.

    You are basically searching for any game that is window-able and has short levels
    or any non-realtime game of any genre which supports saving.
    There are millions of options. So what games do you like?

    @Oktokolo Yep, there are so many options. I don't really have a preferred game genre (except rally games on console..), so I wanted to leave it a bit open. Some good suggestions so far, I'll look into them!

    Try roguelikes - they are good for ad-hoc gaming, most often turn-based and almost always very lightweight.
    They are also the definition of generic - so you can't get hooked on any story.
