Indie showcase Wholesome Direct returns next month with more cozy games

The Nintendo-like presentation will have reveals and chill vibes

The Wholesome Games crew is back again this year with some more wholesome games. The Wholesome Direct will air on June 12 at 1 p.m. ET.

Last summer, the Wholesome Direct was a nice, relaxing break from the usual press showcases, filled with lots of cozy game trailers. This year looks to be more of the same, with even more on display: Wholesome Games is saying it will have exclusives from over 75 games, including new game reveals.

There will even be games that launch during the show! I have to admit, I’m a bit of a sucker for the “available now” thing.

Among the games already confirmed for the Wholesome Direct are Unpacking A Life, We Are OFK, Moonglow Bay, Paralives, Bear and Breakfast, Ooblets, The Gecko Gods, and Amber Isle. As we gear up for the big summer showcases, and especially with E3 2021 right around the corner from this direct, I’m pretty psyched to hear more about some chill games I can relax to.
