This past weekend, while I was at FujoCon, Wholesome Games dropped their 2021 Direct, spotlighting over 70 amazing upcoming indie games! For those of you that don’t know, here’s a bit about Wholesome Games:
“Wholesome Games is a community that started on Twitter when indie game developer Matthew Taylor began curating games according to their feelings of comfort, compassion, and coziness.
One of the goals of Wholesome Games is to change how we think about which games are taken seriously. For many years, the most critically acclaimed titles have been the ones with the darkest themes and grimmest depictions of life, but there’s also a whole world of hopeful video games with rich storytelling, innovative gameplay, and beautiful art and sound. We want to be a part of showcasing the breadth of experiences that games can have for players.”
Wholesome Games is out here adding a bit of sunshine and happiness to the world one game at a time, and that’s something I can really get behind! So, I took a bit of time between panels to check out their lineup and there were more than a few games that caught my eye… so I figured why not spotlight some of the games I’m most excited to play! Nothing fancy, just a quick little list of games from the direct that I am definitely adding to my wishlist!
