Here on Her Cozy Gaming, my goal is to inspire older women who might be non-gamers to try a cozy game this year.

2023 is the BEST year for Cozy Games!

You heard it hear first, I’m predicting that in 2023 Cozy Games are going mainstream. Why? Because people want more games with kindness and care at their core.

With so many new cute and cozy indie games released in 2022 that cared about their heart-centered message – Coral Island and restoring coral reefs for example – more people are turning to cozy games because of their considerate and relatable themes.

Don’t just take my word for it, take a look at these new and upcoming influencers who choose to just play these types of games for a living.

Creators like Gamer Girl Gale, who went from a couple of thousand followers on TikTok at the beginning of 2022 to over 120K in less than 12 months, and YouTuber Eeowna who had the third-highest viewed video within the cozy games tag with nearly 300K views in less than 4 days.

Let’s take a glimpse at the coziest games coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, Playstation, and Xbox in 2023.

Bear in mind that it can take a long time to make a game and sometimes release dates do change. I will update this list throughout the year so you can keep track of your favorite games.
