June: Joyful June
Spread positivity and kindness this month by playing games that have positive messages and themes.
In honor of “Say Something Nice Day”, we encourage you to play games that promote kindness, empathy, and compassion.
Whether it’s a game about helping others or one that simply makes you feel good, we hope this theme inspires you to spread joy and positivity both in-game and in your daily life.
Some examples: Kind Words, Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, Littlewood, Florence, Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, A Bird Story.
You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for everyone’s progress to be tracked, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!
name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished total: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished
Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games - I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
