Congratulations to EVERYONE mentioned because I’ve been watching you all throughout the year and it’s been wonderful to see you grow as creators and people.
2023 will be a HUGE year for cozy gamers as a whole as the niche is starting to be noticed by brands and platforms like this Tweet from YouTube Gaming.
