2021 surprised us with some really great games at the end of the year. We were able to embark on a mystically eerie search for a Christmas tree, deliver beautifully wrapped presents, take on the battle with mushroom, lizard and even furnace monsters, repurpose sea serpents as navigational aids, mimic animals and make pilgrimages through the innards of galactic fiends! That sounds like a fantastic start to the new year? Then we hope you will enjoy our eight recommendations for in-between, which we have collected on our Twitter account over the past month!
