Cozy Games: Bringing Wholesomeness to Kids' Games

Cozy Games: Bringing Wholesomeness to Kids' Games Cozy games is a genre of video games for all ages that is focused on relaxed, wholesome, feel-good, and clean fun no matter the content of the gameplay itself. With picturesque worlds, delightfully soothing soundtracks, and uncomplicated gameplay that is intuitive enough for everyone to master quickly, some developers view cozy games as an offshoot of the life-sim genre first made popular by The Sims in 2000. But instead of adult human characters, cozy games generally feature cute, anime-style characters, such as anthropomorphic animals or child-like humans, who engage in player activities such as farming, building, gathering, growing, and nurturing, with a core goal of fostering self-expression, creativity, and in-game social skills in outcomes that are often open-ended.

In this article, we list a couple of the best cozy games for all ages to enjoy, most of which can be found on the Steam platform. - rate
