How many snowballs would you store under your cape if you were an alligator (who also happens to be an astronomer) walking through a snowy forest at night? In Lost Constellation, from the team behind Night in the Woods, that figure is seemingly limitless. You can throw the snowballs at bottles that hang from trees and make ethereal, chime-like music. You can use them to build snowman after snowman. You can also use your snowball stash as a metaphor for Lost Constellation as a game; it only takes an hour to get through the forest but, considering its beauty, who could blame you for hoarding moments like they were snowballs?

Perfect for: Lovers of bedtime stories, owners of central heating.

Playtime: An hour or a long, beautiful night.
