TowerFall Creator Announces Mountain 'Em Up Celeste

Because it's there

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.

Given the airdashing of Celeste's prototype and the general zippiness of TowerFall, I'd expect something fast and bouncy and deathy? Also, mysteries:

Ooh folks can't get enough of mountains these days! Cyberheads are scaling Everest and larking about in the alps, and now Celeste is being expanded for a full game. But we all know what game is really behind this. My own little Mountain still lives, as far as I know, but I dare not look because it had gone all existential then a bit sensible and I don't want to be a Mountainmurderer like Pip. Fingers crossed that Celeste won't somehow force me to commit mountaincide - or, worse, break the Country Code.

Celeste is due some time in 2017. Until then, you can follow its progress on the devblog.
