Platforming Modern Classic Celeste Gets a Surprise Semi-Sequel

The developers of 2018’s Celeste have released a surprise semi-sequel to mark the game’s third anniversary.

Celeste director Maddy Thorson posted the news to Twitter, revealing that Celeste 2: Lani’s Trek or Celeste Classic 2 is a sequel to the original prototype of the game, built in Pico-8.

Pico-8 is a “fantasy video game console” game engine that allows for its games to be played within a browser. This means you can play Celeste Classic 2 right now if you follow this link to the game’s Itch.io page.

According to the short description that accompanies the game, Celeste Classic 2 was built in just three days. The mini-sequel is a challenging aside clearly set within the Celeste universe. You play as a new character called Lani, who has a grappling hook.
