Celeste [Official Site], the narrative-driven platformer from the creator of TowerFall is now officially confirmed to be releasing on Linux. It's actually releasing tomorrow, so you really don't have long to wait!

Well-known porter Ethan Lee confirmed this on Twitter and again here, as he is handling some parts of the Linux version, as it already used FNA. On top of that, the one of the developers also then confirmed it on Twitter after this.

About the game:

  • A narrative-driven, single-player adventure like mom used to make, with a charming cast of characters and a touching story of self-discovery
  • A massive mountain teeming with 600+ screens of hardcore platforming challenges and devious secrets
  • Brutal B-side chapters to unlock, built for only the bravest mountaineers
  • IGF “Excellence in Audio” finalist, with over 2 hours of original music led by dazzling live piano and catchy synth beats

It has a page up on Steam and it seems it will be coming to soon, at least according to the info at the top of the main website, but there's no itch store page up yet.

I love the look of this, but also, I'm pretty sure it's just going to be too hard for me. It looks Meatboy hard. Throw-your-controller-across-the-room hard. Die-so-many-times-you-die-inside hard.

Genuinely not sure I'd enjoy it...

This is one I'm definitely looking forward to trying out.

There's an "assist mode" that lets you change up the difficulty as much as you want, apparently. Make yourself invulnerable, have infinite stamina, skip sections, etc. No consequences to it, either, unless your ego doesn't allow you to accept the help
