Kirby makes climbing Celeste mountain look easy in Ingeste

It's the middle of the week, it's time to unwind a little, so let's take a stroll back up the spike-lined paths of Celeste mountain, but this time as Kirby. Ingeste, by EX.ULT VIDEOTAINMENT is a free, browser-friendly mod of the original Celeste for Pico-8 starring HAL Laborotory's famously friend-shaped pink puffball. It's a cute little subversion of a Matt Thorson's tough platformer, letting you float…

The makers of Celeste have shared a big slab of the platformer's code, letting everyone dig down into the intricacies of its movement. "Maybe it'll interest you if you're curious how some part of that works!" game director Matt Thorson said. Given how secretive the games industry can be, it's nice to see a game with such great-feeling movement spill its guts for all to…

Watch 9 minutes of mountain-climbing in Celeste

As someone who recently spent 10 days trekking through the French Alps while trying to figure out what to do with my life, I think I can empathise with Madeline. She's the main character in Celeste, the upcoming platformer from the Towerfall devs which releases on January 26th.

TowerFall Creator Announces Mountain ‘Em Up Celeste

TowerFall creator Matt Thorson has announced his next game, a mountain-climbing platformer named Celeste [official site]. Together with Noel Berry, he's "re-imagining" the wee prototype they made last year in only four days - which you can still play online. Unlike the local multiplayer murder madness of TowerFall, Celeste looks like quite a chill - though certainly not easy - solo adventure.
