Game Review: Celeste

Put yourself in the shoes of a young explorer named Madeline, who’s on a mission to climb the mountain of Celeste.

What is Celeste?
Released in Early 2018 by Developer and Publisher Matt Makes Games Inc, Celeste offers an experience like no other. Help Madeline survive her inner demons on her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain.

Despite its appearances, Celeste is more than a game just about platforming. It’s not only just about being a challenging platformer, but also being a game that contains a powerful tale of recognizing, dealing with, and attempting to overcome the struggles of mental illness.

How do I play?
You might start the game with just jumping and running, but as you move on, you unlock more mechanics, the most iconic one being dashing. You can play using a controller or a keyboard, and the game is available on these platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch.
