Awesome Games You Need To Play If You Loved 'Wattam'

Updated April 10, 2020 35 votes 9 voters25 items

Wattam is a one-of-a-kind game created by legendary developer Keita Takahashi. According to Takahashi, the game’s overarching goal is to help make players appreciate life a bit more. That might sound strange for a video game, but we’d expect nothing less from the man behind the Katamari Damacy series.

Wattam is popular with fans who are looking for a wholesome escape from the world in the form of a video game. However, finishing a game like that can leave the player wanting more, because a virtual pick-me-up is just what they need. If that's the case for you, too, you're in luck! The best games like Wattam feature the same aloof gameplay sans all the violence and drama of most modern games. They’re enjoyable, intuitive, and insanely original.

From classics like Animal Crossing to indie darlings like Untitled Goose Game and more, vote up all your favorite games that are similar to Wattam, and add your own picks if they’re missing from the list.
