Watch the Wholesome Direct 2021 livestream here

Be sure to catch up everything wholesome coming to this E3 season and join us for Saturday's Wholesome Direct.


Not every game is (or should be) focused solely on violence or bloodshed. Sometimes, it's okay to enjoy a game that's just good, clean fun. If you're looking for a break from the usual violent fare, maybe take a look at some wholesome games. A crew of volunteers have come together with the man behind the Wholesome Games Twitter account to put together the Wholesome Direct and it kicks off today.

The Wholesome Direct stream will air live Saturday, June 12 at 10:00 a.m. PT/1:00 p.m. ET. The full presentation will be viewable live on Twitch Gaming, as well as the Wholesome Games YouTube channel, GameSpot, and the Guerrilla Collective's page on Steam. If you don't wish to click over to any of those pages, you can check out the helpful Twitch embed above.

The Wholesome Direct is expected to last roughly an hour. It will run practically a mile a minute, because the hour is expected to cover announcements, interviews, and exclusive footage for 75 game titles. That over one game a minute! These games include Moonglow Bay, Ooblets, Spirit Swamp, The Gecko Gods, Yokai Inn, and many more.

Shacknews will have an eye on Saturday's Wholesome Direct, as well as everything else unfolding throughout this weekend. Be sure to keep it here for the latest announcements.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
