Nintendo-style ‘Wholesome Direct’ highlights 75 future indie games

Nintendo-style ‘Wholesome Direct’ highlights 75 future indie games

Source Wholesome Direct will be broadcast June 12 at 1 p.m. EDT on the Guerilla Collective Twitch channel.

Matthew Taylor, a Wholesome Direct organizer and game developer, described wholesome games as “thoughtful, uplifting, and compassionate.” On the Wholesome Direct submissions form, the team elaborated more: “Low stakes, low stress, low violence, uplifting themes, thoughtful representation of marginalized groups” There are more “wholesome games” than ever; the genre has seen a boom, The Verge reported in March 2020. These games largely have “smaller, compact stories,” The Verge said, lending themselves to more “introspective experiences” than some massive, AAA titles — though, of course, games that are hugely popular can be wholesome, too. (Animal Crossing: New Horizons, anyone?)

“Every game we curate fits at least a couple of those criteria,” Taylor told Polygon. Wholesome Direct will feature announcements from some of 2021’s most anticipated indie games and updates: Making-the-band-style interactive series We Are OFK, chill fishing simulator Moonglow Bay, and colorful farming game Ooblets. In Wednesday’s tweet, Wholesome Games said more information is coming about puzzle game Unpacking A Life, gecko game The Gecko Gods, and highly-anticipated life sim Paralives.
