finished celeste except for the post game stuff and the b-sides. it's sooo good.

went in expecting to have to use some of the assist mode things at some point (had my eye on the 50% speed one in particular) because my secret shame is im really bad at jumper, but it does a really good job of being v hard without being frustrating, and everything feels surmountable even when you've planted your face in the same spikes 50 times in a row. i'm glad the features are there as a safety net though, and they're presented v non-judgementally.

definitely highly recommended to anyone here whos heard of and likes the jumpers series of games by helixgamesinc


edit: also the musics v good, and the way it's used in the game is v good.

Celeste is sooooo good. I 100%'d it last night (except for one type of challenge that's just absurd and probably has no reward, and an achievement I'm unsure how you'd get without Assist Mode, though I'm playing on Switch anyway). It's really designed in such a fair-feeling, "doable" way all the way through, except maybe one bonus level where it took me forever to figure out the consistent way of doing a thing with a certain gimmick, because in order to experiment with it you have to make it through an already-somewhat-difficult part every time.

Although there's also a Mystery no one seems to have solved.......... (Slight spoilers regarding some special collectibles.)

Oh, I know how you get it, I'm just not sure what the best place would be to get that many strawberries without landing. Off the top of my head, maybe the first section of Chapter 2, the area in Chapter 4 with all the optional passages, or the first part of Chapter 5? I haven't really tried yet since it's not recognized on Switch, but maybe it's easier to keep them from "collecting" than I think.

And I finished with about the same death count, so nice. I've also managed presumably the same golden strawberries as you, but I also got 2-C and 4-C - the nature of the C-Sides makes them surprisingly easy to do deathless, relatively speaking.

here I am trying to race to beat Demon's Souls before the servers shut down.

Apparently you have a better experience playing it offline.  Like you've always had a better experience with it offline.
