Celeste is one of the most memorable games I’ve played this year. A brilliant masterpiece, it developed in me a profound appreciation of games as a vehicle for creative expression. Read more about my journey in scaling Celeste Mountain in this three-part series.

If you haven’t played Celeste, I highly-recommend that you try it out and finish the main storyline. Don’t be discouraged by its supposed difficulty— it’s part of the journey and the developers ensured that their game caters to both casuals and advanced players alike. For only 10 USD on Steam, you get access to its rich content and thoughtful narrative.
