Celeste: More Than a Game

My Favorite Video Game, Ever

Posted by Tori on January 25, 2020

I’ll elaborate my thoughts on the following aspects of the game Celeste if I have time:

  1. Controls: smoother than ever

  2. How new mechanisms are introduced

  3. Level design and embodied cognition

  4. How it encourages players: minimal death cost, collectibles, A/B/C sides, assist mode

  5. Plot: a gentle yet deep touch on depression

  6. Music: vibe, immersion and hidden details
