I was a massive fan of TowerFall (I clocked up the most hours on my PS4 in 2015) so naturally I was excited to see what creator Matt Thorson would make next. When I first saw Celeste, I wasn't too excited as I thought it was just a Super Meat Boy clone with a TowerFall look to it but all the trailers still intrigued me more as they were released.
I ended up picking this up yesterday on my Switch for my journeys to and from work and I don't think any game has clicked with me so quickly as this one has. Everything from the look, tight controls, the music and the story just feels right about this game. I can’t think of a 2D platformer that has felt this good since the old Mario Games. I know it is a busy time for new game releases with Dragon Ball and Monster Hunter etc. but I have a feeling I'll be clocking more hours playing Celeste by trying to better my chapter finish time or finding secrets in the various levels.
Anyone else thinking of picking this up during this busy release schedule? I'd say it's perfect for the Switch but I think pretty much most games are these days!
