What have you been playing lately? It's chat time

Wow, the end of another week over here in the surprisingly hot and sunny UK. Perfect weather to be sat inside playing games and there's been plenty of that here.

Thanks to the news of Celeste coming to Stadia, I was reminded of the fact that Celeste was in the recent itch.io charity bundle so I've been able to give it a thorough go after only previously playing it at a friends PC. I already liked it a lot but now I've sunk plenty more hours into it I'm totally blown away by it. It's truly no surprise to me now why it has amassed such a following, like on Steam where it has over twenty thousand views an an overall Overwhelmingly Positive rating.

For the Linux version, Celeste appears to be another example of a finely tuned experience with no issues encountered for me at all. If you've not tried Celeste yet, do give it a go. Getting those darn Strawberries has become my most painful mission, like the time I caught a particularly tricky one after 30 minutes of failed attempts only for my thumb to slip off the gamepad stick at a vital step afterwards…

It really does get intense and actually managing to catch each one feels so good. Difficult? Absolutely. However, it's pretty much the perfected experience of challenging platforming with lovely pixel-art and beautiful audio to top it off. If you don't own Celeste you can grab it from itch.io, Humble Store and Steam.

Over to you: what have you been gaming on Linux recently? Have a chat in the comments.

I've racked up many hours on ShellShock Live since picking it up on sale last week. It has got a real Las Vegas slot machine vibe with all the bonuses, power-up items, tons of fun weapons, quick victories (or losses), and big mostly-friendly multiplayer community. Just one more level-up....

The original Dying Light. This style of game usually isn’t my cup of coffee, but this one seems above average so I’ll try it a bit longer.
