Celeste is the second game from Towerfall developer MattMakesGames, which this time is Matt Thorson (Towerfall), collaborator Noel Berry (Skytorn), and friends.

Nominally a game about climbing a mountain, Celeste is a difficult story-driven platformer that surprised us by becoming one of the best games of 2018 so far.

Celeste is a fairly short game but play times will vary, with main story completion taking between 8-12 hours. A significant amount of optional, post-game, and bonus content is included. The game is available on Steam and Itch.io (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It costs $19.99 on all platforms. See the game’s homepage for links to purchase.
