Cosy games with a touch of menace are perfect for getting into the Christmas mood

Some games are just December games. When the air turns biting, I hear their siren song in my bones. They Are Billions. Frostpunk. Phoenix Point. Factorio. None of them are exactly what you would call a Christmas-y game. In fact, they’re all pretty bleak and threatening in tone. But they’re also amazingly comforting.

Just imagine: sitting down in your favourite chair, electric heat pad on your back, cat on your lap, mug of hot chocolate or coffee by your side. Legions of undead roiling at the gates, trying to break through your cosy little town’s defences. Ahhhhh. It’s Christmas.
