Retro-style indie platformer Celeste is perhaps one of the best games I’ve ever played. On the surface, it’s a game about an aimless millennial trying to climb a mountain. As you play, though, the game slowly reveals a (slightly supernatural) story about a young woman coping with what appears to be an anxiety disorder. Her struggles, exacerbated by the strain of the climb, also manifest in a dark shadow that hounds her every step. I’ve loved everything about the game.
Well, everything except for those $#%@in’ strawberries.
