Earlier than Celeste graced our screens again in 2018, we had, uh, Celeste. It was a simplified model of the sport created with the Pico-8 engine and launched in 2016. It options all of the air-dashing, strawberry gathering, and demand for good platforming you’ll recognise, however was extra dialled again in animation and as of late appears like a proof of idea. Naturally, although, having video games with the identical title is complicated, so the older of the 2 turned referred to as Celeste Basic – phew.
Now, although, to have fun the third anniversary of Celeste, the group at Extraordinarily OK Video games has launched a follow-up to Celeste Basic. It’s referred to as Celeste 2: Lani’s Trek and the group put it collectively in simply three days.
Because the title provides away, this one is a couple of new character referred to as Lani and never Madeline. There’s no air-dashing, both, as you’ll be counting on a grappling hook to get you the place you wish to go. I haven’t received correctly caught into the sport but, however it nonetheless retains every thing else that made Celeste satisfying – from the splendidly uplifting soundtrack to the demand for exact platforming.
Over the past 3 days we made a sequel to the PICO-8 Celeste Basic, which you’ll be able to play right here:https://t.co/wP8t6Pv0lg
