Cozy Gamers were spoilt for choice this month as dozens of indie games were released ahead of the winter AAA competition.
I apologize if you were trying to save up for Christmas but you won’t want to miss some of these amazing game titles.
Here are 8 of the Coziest Games released on Nintendo Switch this September.
Before you dive in I would like to just remind you that it’s okay not to play them all.
I’ve seen countless Twitter posts from gamers who felt overwhelmed with too much choice this past month. What with the start of the new school year for some and the season changing (it always affects my mood), it’s okay if you only pick one and stick with that.
I never want you to feel pressured to play every new release. Cozy games are there to fit your lifestyle, and they’ll be there for you when you need a break.
Kaichu is a dating sim about kaiju! You play the role of Gigachu, a gigantic romantic looking for love. Meet 6 other eligible kaiju and visit 24 famous landmarks where Gigachu will answer challenging compatibility questions to decide the fate of your relationship.
This cute game caught my fancy as I’m a huge fan of Pacific Rim (It was the first film I saw in IMAX and it blew me away!).
But mix a dating sim with giant monsters? This has to be played to be believed.
7. Wylde Flowers
Join Tara on a heartfelt journey to become a witch in Wylde Flowers. Farm by day, and cast spells by night as you craft your cottagecore life and bond with your coven. Come to know and love the fully voice-acted characters of Fairhaven, as you unravel a local mystery.
Wylde Flowers has certainly done the rounds of cozytok. I can’t swipe without a cozy gamer mentioning it, plus I know many of you have been commenting on my TikToks about it too.
I feel the classic art style and musical score give this game a beautiful blend of nostalgia and innovation.
6. Bear and Breakfast
Bear and Breakfast is a laid-back management adventure game where you build and run a bed and breakfast…but you’re a bear.
I got the opportunity to play this cozy game earlier in the year for PC and I adored it! Personally, I didn’t like the controls on Switch that much but it may be just because I played it on PC first. Let me know how you found the handling in the comments.
You play as Hank, a bear who has come across an abandoned shack and together with his friends decides to earn some money by turning it into a thriving B&B.
To begin with, you’re very much guided through as the story unfolds but eventually, you’ll find yourself left on your own to explore. If the Saturday morning cartoon art style doesn’t hook you in then the charming and witty characters will.
5. Potion Permit
Moonbury’s residents need healing, and you’re the best chemist around! With your trusty tools, a brewing cauldron, and a canine companion at your side, you’ll need to diagnose symptoms, gather ingredients, brew potions, and cure ailments in this open-ended sim RPG.
Potion Permit has the most unique storyline in a game I’ve played in some time. It’s also highly addictive and perfect for a cozy weekend indoors.
Dorfromantik is a peaceful building strategy and puzzle game where you create a beautiful and ever-growing village landscape by placing tiles. Explore a variety of colorful biomes, discover and unlock new tiles and complete quests to fill your world with life!
3. Please, Touch the Artwork
What happens when you DO touch the artwork? Part Zen-puzzle, part narrative-adventure, you’ll unravel the secret world behind iconic abstract paintings through over 160 puzzles. An aesthetic journey to the origins of modern art, set to a soothing jazzy soundtrack.
If you’re new to Nintendo Switch having only ever played mobile games then Please, Touch The Artwork should be first on your list.
The stylish soundtrack blended a hint of museum stuffiness gave this game a pleasant ambiance.
With an ever-increasing level of difficulty, you’ll never be bored..
Ooblets is a farming, creature collection, and town life game where you build up your farm, befriend townsfolk, grow ooblets, and have dance-offs.
Sounds quirky and it is!
If you’re waiting patiently for Puff Pals: Island Skies to release this may just satisfy your cute buds.
1. DISNEY DREAMLIGHT VALLEY
Explore a world filled with the magic of Disney as you discover rich stories and build the perfect neighborhood alongside Disney and Pixar Heroes and Villains in this new life-sim adventure game.
Disney Dreamlight Valley is the latest in life simulators to draw in fans of Animal Crossing New Horizons. It’s won my heart!
As a massive Disney fan, I was destined to love this cozy game.
You’ll adore making friends with Ariel, Wall-e, Moana, and even Mickey. Level-up your character to gain new rewards, shop, design, farm, fish.. what isn’t in this game?
No wonder it’s been crashing on Switch.
Dreamlight Valley is in Early Access until early 2023, when it will go free-to-play. But you can play it now if you don’t mind paying. I bought it twice!
