There’s a lovely subsection of the games industry that just makes lovely stuff. Whether it’s the type that’ll feature in the Wholesome Direct 2022, or just some titles designed to be cute as heck, there’s a lot to choose from. So, whether it’s kawaii, wholesome, or somewhere in between, there are a lot of games that tick the box.
Cute games can involve all manner of things – loads of cats, little chibified characters, or weird fantasy monstrosities (see: Captain Toad). Because of this, it can be pretty hard to pin down exactly what the special sauce is that makes a good game. Either way, there are a bunch below that definitely have some magic.
Once you reach a cuteness overload, we can offer up all manner of alternatives. Check out our art games guide if you’re the creative type, our gardening games guide if you’re the outdoorsy type, or our flying games guide if you’re a bit of an adrenaline junky.
