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. Madeline sets out to climb Celeste Mountain for reasons unknown – though I reckon it’s got something to do with ‘brooding’.
Whatever her reason, it’s a good excuse for some promising looking platforming that evokes a less frantic Super Meat Boy. After watching the 9 minutes of game footage below, I’ve got high hopes for it.
