It takes a really special type of indie game to take the world by storm, but Celeste managed to be just that. Upon its release in 2018, it was met with overwhelming praise from both the public and the press. And when you give it a go, it’s not hard to see why.

Following the journey of Madeline as she tries to overcome her inner demons, you’ll be accompanying her as she treks to the top of Celeste mountain. Her journey is never easy, and there’ll be numerous obstacles in her way – but Celeste‘s effortlessly charming pixelated artstyle and touching narrative means it’s easy to get invested. If you love 2D platform games with a retro slant, Celeste is absolutely worth your time.
