Hello, everyone! We at Team Visionary hope that you’ve had a great week. Today, we have a spectacular list of the most relaxing Minecraft Adventure Maps for Casual Play for you guys. 

Minecraft is a lot of things to a lot of people: for some, it’s a fun and casual pastime; for some, it’s a career and full-time job. Some players live for the adrenaline rush of competing against other players in heated, bloody battles. Others might spend their Minecraft days tilling away at wheat fields, and their nights huddled in cozy little farmhouses. 

For the community of creative content creators, however, this wonderful game and its flexibility is nothing less than their own personal universe, a platform to build and create where the sky’s the limit (and sometimes not even then). Adventure maps are one such medium, where content creators can mold a Minecraft map to their whim, making characters, goals, quests, and custom mechanics for the player to explore.

It’s been a rough year, and these unprecedented times have worn many, many of us down. Now that the year is coming to a close and holidays are starting, plenty of Minecrafters are looking for a reprieve from the daily hustle and bustle. And that’s totally okay! Today’s list will cover the most relaxing Minecraft adventure maps, for all of you out there who are tired of fighting the good fight irl and just want to chill out a little bit.

All of these maps involve getting your own little space and being able to raise or create something of your own, from adorable dogs to mystical creatures, from lush plants to tropical fish. Without further ado, let’s get into things!

Are you a fan of Pokemon? Do you enjoy collectible games, such as card games, where you get to build up your team or deck with powerful (or cute) creatures to fight for you?

Pets HD introduces over 125 (!!) amazingly cute and strong creatures, all custom-modelled and textured with beautiful, vibrant palettes. Hatch, raise and evolve these little critters into their next “stages”, with 4 stages per pet to run through. Soar the skies on a lithe dragon, or sit on the back of a robotic t-rex and rule the lands. This map comes with an expansive world full of secrets, quests and dungeons, its own economy, and a mesmerizing story that’s sure to keep you hooked till the end.
