I really enjoy playing time management games: their casual nature helps me relax after a stressful day, but they are still challenging enough not to become boring. But with so many TM games launched in 2018, it’s difficult to know which are the best. That’s why we’re here today: to share with you the best time management games of 2018 for PC and Mac.
When talking about this genre, there are basically two different types of gameplay that you will get: first, we have the strategy-looking games where you have roads and build stuff; second, we have the store-management type of games, where you have to serve customers and make sure your business works smoothly.
In today’s articles, we have both sub-genres covered, so if you prefer one over the other, you will still have options. Great options, as these are the best time management games of 2018 (to play in 2019 if you haven’t tried them already). So let’s not waste and time and instead let’s check them all out below – in no particular order.
