Anyone been playing this game? I'd assume anyone who has enjoyed Super Meat Boy might want in on this game. Difficult 2D platformer with an engaging, powerful story and an excellent soundtrack.

Played on launch, really good game! It's interesting that for the most part it plays more like a puzzle game than a precision platformer due to the 8-directional dash, tight controls and level design.
Got everything besides the golden strawberries:



I'm also working on a Mirror Temple (Mirror Magic Mix) chart.

Another cool thing is the speedrunning element Celeste shows you by the time you start learning the advanced movement tech once you start getting into B-Sides.

Also dang, I've yet to complete 8-C. You have way less deaths and playtime than me lmao.


Been trying to learn to speedrun through the main story right now (any%), got a 1:30ish time with just Chapters 1 & 2 learned so far.

The advanced movements make even simple screens super fun to traverse and optimize.

I was intending to speedrun any% as well later on, with more time and after setting up a few things for my stream. I've only tried my hand at learning chapter 1 and some little tricks like the skip in chapter 5.

That death count & time is actually slightly inflated from doing extra stuff on the A-side levels, for reference my sightread time & deaths for the B and C-sides (minus deaths in the first screen):

Finished it up shortly after release through all the B side levels, getting all the hearts.

Haven't gone back to it to finish up any C side.

Amazing game overall though. Polished extremely well and very fun. Would have sank more time into it / speedruns if I wasn't so busy, as it looks fun as hell to run.

my game currently looks like:




my death count is a little inflated from when i got all strawberries/hearts (reference is the earliest ss i could find ), but playtime is *heavily* inflated from spending time doing golden strawberries
actual best death counts (i have golden strawberries from city and old site):




=================================

also, minor spoiler (just the strawberry count):

You guys are hardcore. I always struggle with these kinds of games.

I watched MacGravel play through some of it and I lost my mind FOR him

I have close to 500 deaths in the hotel on my first run through.

I'm awful at these kinda games, and that's part of the fun for it.

Dedicated a solid few weeks to the game and went a little crazy, but I'm pretty close to completion:



There are 200 strawberries in total: 175 throughout the game, then 24 golden strawberries for clearing each A, B, and C Side level without dying, and one more winged golden strawberry for clearing Chapter 1 without dashing. So far I've managed the no-dash and deathless strawberries in Chapter 1 and deathless in Chapter 2 (so this screenshot is a tad outdated).

Here's what you have to look forward to once you get to the C-Sides (a clip I uploaded yesterday of Chapter 7's C-Side):

Did some golden strawberries in the C-Sides.

21 attempts


24 attempts


52 attempts


250 attempts (gotten on stream)


196 attempts


Forgotten how many attempts this took because I didn't take a screenshot immediately after getting it, but I believe this was around 50ish attempts.


fuck 3-c and 7-c lmao

getting used to playing the game. Got through Chapter 2 relatively easy compared to getting 50+ deaths in Chapter 1.

So Iíve been practicing for a speedrun. Spent 8 solid hours chasing a sub-1:20 in Forsaken City, and my hands are still sore, but I finally did it.

That's a solid Forsaken City, good job.

Did my third "speedrun" through any%, got sub 1. Gotta put more practice in the later chapters.
