Casual game

Game genre concept

Simple, family-friendly games that are easy to pick up and play for a short while but do not take hours of dedication to accomplish something.


The first video game about Casual game was released in 2006.

Secret Exit, Positech Games and PopCap Games has published most of these games

A lot of "casual" game portals exist that sell games that are far from casual, so the term has become somewhat vague.

The most important bit is the time invested on the game, not how easy it is to learn.
