Here Is the Wholesome Direct 2023 Game Roundup

Each year among the various game showcases, there’s the Wholesome Direct. It’s a presentation focused on titles designed to be cozy or pleasant. The 2023 installment aired on June 10, 2023 and fell under the Summer Game Fest umbrella. While the official Twitter account teased many of the trailers that would appear and titles that would be present, here’s a quick roundup of some of the more notable games that appeared during the presentation. Four titles were shadowdrops, with Frogsong, Life After Magic, Smushi Come Home, and Toaster Ball available now.
