As this blur of a summer wears on, I've found myself drawn to wholesome games more than ever. Games that lift me up, give me something pleasant to focus on, and let my mind rest – if only for a bit.
Ooblets sits at the top of the feel-good list. It's a critter-collecting, crop-growing, townsfolk-chatting life sim with dance battles and afternoon naps. As soon as I got my first Lumpstump, I was all-in.
If you're susceptible to this laid-back genre, you're gonna love Ooblets, even in its Early Access state.
