Until recently, I had no real idea of what Forest bathing was. I had heard of it in passing, and that was about it. I started thinking about it more when I was looking up at the underside of trees and thinking about how happy it made me.

My partner and I have been using Agape fairly regularly for the past few months. I wanted to use it for a sustained period of time before writing a review so that I could see the longer-term effects of using it on our relationship.

The slower pace of the game gave my nervous system more of a chance to relax while also being able to be immersed in the game. I tend to find that the more immersive games tend to have a sense of urgency or danger which can be a little stressful when trying to use gaming as a way to relax.
