Heya, it’s been awhile since I posted on here.
So, a few weeks ago, I heard about this game that got released at the start of the year called Celeste. While it does have high difficulty, the relaxing music and encouraging words of the game help the player to persevere. But what really got to me was the way it handled dark subject matter such as anxiety and depression. Not just through the story and characters, but through the very MUSIC as well.
I’m not going to be reviewing the game in-depth here. Both because I don’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t played it. What I will say is that you should at least watch a playthrough of it. I came out of the experience feeling like I got to explore more of myself, and come to terms with the parts of myself that I don’t like very much.
Who knows, maybe some of you will find Celeste as relatable and personal as I have.
