I'm the kind of person who plays a game for the story, not the difficulty. There's something that makes this game very special to me, and that's the Assist mode. I suck at most video games--it took me 91 hours to beat Hollow Knight, and I only finished it because of the immortality mod I added to the game. I turned on the Assist mode in Celeste, and not only beat the game, but had an incredible time doing so.
Another really awesome thing is the huge text in the game. I'm visually impaired, and I almost started crying when I saw how big the font in this game is--I can actually read it, without having to use my magnification program, or smashing my face up against the screen.
My game of the year, everyone should play this. Be it for gameplay, story, characters, soundtrack, replayability, level design, art style... you'll find a reason

I don't play hard games. I tried Dark Souls a few times, but kept getting dead by the big dude in the first room, or whatever. I love games, have been playing them all my life - but I'm complete rubbish at them.
At first I dismissed Celeste along the lines of other super-hard pixelart platformers, but the reviews convinced me it was something worth experiencing.
So now I'm four worlds in, and loving it. I'm even loving the challenge, and haven't bothered to use the assist mode once. I'm happy to persist (and die hundreds of times each chapter) until I get it right. The assist mode is a generous inclusion that I fully support, and I may yet use it. The generous checkpointing also indicates, to me at least, that this is not a game that's hard for the sake of being hard - it's hard with the intent of building up your skills and rewarding your progress, not punishing your mistakes.
Worth the moneys.
t's deforamer, a writer, a psychology student, and someone who's struggled with her own mental health, I have to say this game is excellent on all accounts. And if you're reading this, developers, thank you

I may not have panic attacks necessarily, but I've definitely had some anxiety problems for years. It feels like it's mostly under control now, but today something triggered it to flair up again. Normally I'd just keep fretting forever, but this game actually made me see my anxiety and some other aspects of myself in a different light, a kinder light.
It's definitely a bit frustrating at points, but it's a challenge I know I can make easier at any point, but don't want to. Maybe, like the main character, I have something to prove, something to gain from the struggle. There's this moment of catharsis when I complete a tricky area and I find pride in collecting all the strawberries I can, even the tricky ones. The gameplay is excellent, and honestly? Normally I'd get frustrated by repeated deaths, but there's a moment where it essentially tells you it's okay to fail because you're learning from it, and that really just put a lot into perspective for me.
The levels are gorgeous, the music is amazing, the sense of emotion is a little overwhelming at times, the gameplay is rewarding, and the characters and even the mountain itself flow seemlessly together into a good story and metaphor.
As a gamer, a writer, a psychology student, and someone who's struggled with her own mental health, I have to say this game is excellent on all accounts. And if you're reading this, developers, thank you for all the kindness and care you put into this game. The experience might be legitimately life changing.
at's so easy to learn the would have, adel should even learned to love the pixelated art style in this game. What a masterpiece! Do yourself a favor and experience Celeste, and join me and so many others in complet
by TheCpum on Steam
I was super skeptical about buying this game. I tend to not like super pixelated games (probably one of the reasons that I didn't like Dead Cells as much as I thought I would), games that are solely platformers turn me off, and I already had a few games on my mind at the time. I saw the glowing reviews, and after a few days of thinking, I bought it, ready to be disappointed. I fully intended to hate the game.
Yet here I am, with almost 70 hours on it, several save files, and every achievement accessible at time of writing.
It's so easy to learn the mechanics of this game that after a chapter, it felt second nature. Gameplay is so smooth, and the learning curve feels natural. But don't underestimate Celeste's difficulty! Every challenge is harder than the last, and by the last screen, I was so relieved to have conquered this game.
Or, I would have, if Madeline's story hadn't been so fun(?) to follow.
Madeline, the player's character, feels like a real person, and one whose feelings, worries, and aspirations eventually become shared by the player. By the end of the game, I felt like I was leaving an old friend (I then started up a new save file and whoops back into the fray I go).
Also, I should mention the soundtrack. It's so, so incredible. Lena Raine, you have seriously blown me away with the music. Absolutely my favorite part of the game.
I even learned to love the pixelated art style in this game. What a masterpiece! Do yourself a favor and experience Celeste, and join me and so many others in completing the upcoming DLC, Chapter 9: Farewell. I have 100% confidence that it'll be a good one!
Celeste p-dash? For ddlures wpnetty, just play s is the only Steam review I've ever written. Thanks for reading.
by Hazel is now playing Celeste on Steam
Celeste is just like programming, and here's why.
You start off slow. Hello world? Jump-dash? For gods sake, I thought this was supposed to be hard.
A few levels later and oh ♥♥♥♥, they weren't kidding.
Your failures will be many, and will come fast. You stop even thinking of them as failures and as part of the game itself. The mistakes will be of either the "I'm a moron" or the "WHY DIDN'T THAT WORK???" varieties. You die slightly later in the level, your error comes a little farther down the program, and even that failure carries a sense of accomplishment. Every single iteration, you get closer, gain more skills.
Eventually you're jumping and dodging with lightning-fast reflexes that you never thought you would have. You beat the level, your program runs, you bask in your glory for a moment, then immediately go on to the next one -- another behemoth of a challenge to overcome. A mix of excitement and dread. But you did it before, and you'll do it again.
Eventually once things get tougher you go online and watch tutorials, even though it feels like cheating, but every time you do, it makes you smarter than you were before. You see the experts doing way better than you think you'll ever do. How do you even begin to write an app like that, or scale the mountain in 45 minutes? There's no possible way to beat that B-Side, are you kidding me??
Sometimes it'll get so frustrating you'll put it down for days. But you always come back, because the challenge is still there, sitting on your computer, waiting for you to overcome.
Then, hours and hours later, you look back on Forsaken City, just play it again to see how much better you've gotten. Through no formal training, no tutorials, no guidance except maybe reading the forums, you've gotten ten times better, just through trying, failing, and trying again.
This is the only Steam review I've ever written. Thanks for reading.
t's 2018, and Celeste e game.
by oniplingz on Steam
In 2012, Bastion made me believe that the future could have better things for me that whatever was past me and my life. So, I went and moved forward.
It's 2018, and Celeste made me believe in myself, that whatever my objective was, I could achieve it with research, critical thinking, and tries. Many, many tries.
Thanks to devs. Awesome game.

A game about a girl who is depressed
Trying to climb a mountain due to unrest
This platformer game is very finessed
The myriad mechanics all coalesced
To put your skills to the ultimate test
The design is great, I do not jest
Secrets within add a lot of zest
All while you climb and push toward the crest
Although the peak is your true quest
You'll want to explore all the rest
The fruit, the tapes, at your behest
So I leave you with one request
Buy this game and you will be blessed
With a grand game, the very best
by Hatador on Steam
Truly a platformer masterpiece.
Undoubtedly of the same quality as Super Meat Boy, VVVVVV, The End is Nigh, N++, etc.
A must-play for 2D platformers lovers.
