We may be in a new year but that won't stop us going back to 2016 for one last time. We've already done it three times (1, 2, 3) with our end of year round-ups, and we'll do it once more here, showing you the highlights of what Warp Door unearthed this past December. Turns out it's several trips along the estranged periphery of society, a broken game, and a therapeutic morning routine.

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.
