The hardest boss I've ever fought. So...Here is someone making it look easy by taking no damage.

This game is really good so far. It combines my three greatest loves: brutalist architecture, Lovecraftian horror, and hurling benches at dudes from across the room with my mind powers.

A side benefit is that I can probably cook dinner on my graphics card while I'm playing, but that's the cost of beauty, I guess.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

Really want to play that. The fonts + aesthetic hooked me.
Its gameplay reminds me of Second Sight a little.

The combat is super fluid and satisfying, though it has the potential to get repetitive as you hone in on your personal play style. The story is... fine. The worldbuilding is way better than the actual plot, which is pretty forgettable. But the acting is mostly good, and the aesthetics are top of the class.

I did snatch that up. I only played about ten minutes of it, so too soon to say for sure if it's for me or not. There's a Super Meat Boy-ishness to it that I'm enjoying so far.

The rooms are full of secrets: even if it's linear, there's a nice Metroidvania feel to the game, too.  Some secrets are pretty hard to find and truly rewarding, if you like the game, because it keeps unlocking quality content.

A new and final chapter (Farewell) has been added to Celeste. I keep being impressed by the madly imaginative game design.
