As we traipse into the desert heat of July, you might find yourself crawling into exhaustion, perhaps slipping mind-wise into a hypnagogic state. But you're not alone, for our round-up of game highlights from June also features some radical hallucinations: Victorian ghosts, washed-out pixel landscapes, even a desert where you may bury crystals under a monolith's unrelenting gaze.

Have a browse through our entire selection below. And if you want to find more convenient collections of games such as this check out our round-up tag.
