Wholesome Direct 2021 promises tons of chill, feel good games

E3 is almost upon us, and developers and publishers are gearing up their own digital showcases for all of the great games coming in 2021 and beyond. Unfortunately, smaller games are often overshadowed by these events, but not for much longer. Wholesome Games has announced that they’ll be hosting the Wholesome Direct 2021 on June 12.

Wholesome Directs are reminiscent of Nintendo Directs, in which new titles will be revealed and exclusive footage will be shown. More than 75 indie gamers will be highlighted during the showcase, and several will launch during the show, too.

The event is being organized with online game festival Guerilla Collective, which will be held over two Saturdays in June, and thanks to Twitch, IGN, and GameSpot, Wholesome Direct 2021 is sure to reach more viewers than ever before.

Some of the games included in the showcase include the fishing simulator Moonglow Bay, the making-the-band style game We are OFK, and the cute and colorful farming game Ooblets.

If you don’t know, a “wholesome game” is a strange little genre of game that has risen in popularity recently. The games are traditionally easy-going and relaxing, often preferring to tell more intimate, introspective stories or offer gameplay experiences that don’t really have an end goal — Think Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Nintendo Switch has proven itself to be the platform of choice for indie games, especially those that fit squarely in the wholesome category. We’re definitely expecting some of the indies revealed to land on our Switches.

You can check out the Wholesome Direct when it broadcast on June 12 at 1 pm EST on the Guerilla Collective Twitch Channel.
