10 December 2020, Winston-Salem, USA - Today Wholesome Games unveiled Wholesome Snack: Holiday Edition which will premiere on YouTube at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT on Wednesday, December 16. Over the course of the twenty-five minute showcase, developers will debut new and exclusive footage of upcoming games while celebrating the end of 2020 with a bit of silliness, excitement, and holiday cheer.
Among the games on display will be:

* Calico, a slice-of-life simulation game that tasks you with rebuilding the local cat café
* Cozy Grove, a game about camping on a haunted island and soothing the local ghosts
* Venba, a narrative cooking game about a mother who moves to Canada from India with her family in the 1980s
* Kitaria Fables, a delightfully cute fusion of action, adventure, and farming
* and more!

Wholesome Direct drew more than 16,000 live viewers on YouTube in May. The showcases are unique in that they are categorized by the wholesome theme instead of the platform where they can be found. In addition, Wholesome Games is a community-run effort with no ads, no sponsors, and no cost whatsoever to the developers invited to participate. Since May, the community has grown to include more than 100,000 members across social media platforms.
Like Wholesome Direct, the goal of Wholesome Snack is to bring attention to games with little violence, low stress, low stakes, uplifting themes, cute aesthetics, and positive representation of marginalized groups. Once again, Wholesome Snack is an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of the developers and games that represent these values.

* Premieres on YouTube at 1 PM ET on Wednesday, December 16, 2020
* A joyful, holiday-themed edition of the popular Wholesome Direct indie game showcase
* Exclusive footage, announcements, and updates from upcoming wholesome titles
* No ads, no sponsors, no cost to developers. Every game was hand-selected by the minds behind Wholesome Games
