One of my favorite games of the year is indie darling Celeste. With challenging platforming gameplay, an outstanding soundtrack, beautiful retro graphics, and an emotionally charged story, Celeste impressed gamers around the world. It even managed a Game of the Year nomination and took home Best Independent Game at The Game Awards.
As the year nears its end (and as Celeste nears its one year anniversary), Director Matt Thorson took to Twitter to share a major milestone. Celeste has now sold over 500,000 copies since it launched on January 25, 2018. Thorson also followed up on the previous teaser by officially announcing that new, harder levels are on their way to the game in 2019.
Celeste sold over 500,000 copies in 2018. Thank you everyone who played it. We never expected it to reach so many people.
