Who doesn’t need a lil gator in their life?
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always hunting for the next cozy, relaxing game I can lose myself in. Based on the news I’ve seen today, it seems that experience is right around the corner in the form of Lil Gator Game. Wholesome Games is one of my favorite Twitter accounts to follow seeing as they keep me up to date on all of my wholesome game needs (of which I have many), so their endorsement means a lot to me. They’ve been thrilled about the upcoming release of Lil Gator Game, so I am absolutely on board.
As you may have guessed, you play as a lil gator who is exploring a beautiful island. You’ll make friends with other animals, complete little tasks like skipping rocks on the water, or shooting at little cardboard targets, and of course you can take things at your own pace to fully enjoy everything the island has to offer.

Only one more sleep until your Lil Gator adventure begins!! 🐊

As much as I’ve love the many excellent action-centric games that have come out this year, the idea of not having any fail state or time limit sounds like a dream. The Steam page advertises that you can “climb, swim, and glide” your way around, and it seems to me like we’re still seeing Breath of the Wild’s influence on open world game design — which I will take as a win.
Lil Gator Game is the debut for indie studio MegaWobble, and if the game lives up the trailers I’ve seen so far, I think they’re going to be in it for the long haul. Their publisher, Playtonic Friends, has also helped release indie favorites like Blossom Tales II, Demon Turf, and A Little Golf Journey.
