Tired of sifting through the same old Instagram posts and Twitter updates? As amazing as it is having less responsibilities over break, sometimes it can get a bit boring. That’s why we scoured the internet for addicting games, mindless entertainment, and everything in between. Check out our picks!
1. Find the Invisible Cow
This game is a bit ridiculous — we’ll admit it — but that doesn’t change that fact that it is a pretty entertaining way to kill some free time. Simply move your cursor around a blank screen and listen for the “cow” sound. The audio gets louder the closer you get to the invisible cow! Play here.

3. One Late Night
You may be more familiar with the popular Slenderman game, but that’s not the only immersive horror game that the internet loves — One Late Night is a fan favorite, too! Follow the story line, complete the tasks, and search through clues to figure out exactly what kinds of horrors are going down. Download here.
