Here we are, 2017. What a first month it has been. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we've got a bunch of games about the degeneration of reality and escaping into other ones, such as dreams or virtuality. There are also a couple of games that look into memories of previous years: drunken nights, subway commutes, and hard times. But we also have games that should help you along with their simpler pleasures: solving puzzles, leaping over spikes, and shooting baddies.

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.
