Epic Games continue to give Santa Clause a run for his money with all the free gifts, and today's freebie is Celeste, a lovely platformer by Matt Plays Games. Rumour has it that tomorrow's gift is Totally Accurate Battle Simulator.
If you've just tuned in, you should know these are not the standard Epic freebies that rotate weekly - 12 Days of Video Games event is meant to keep gifting at least one game a day until the end of 2019. In other words, you have until tomorrow at 5pm to pick it up Celeste.
Interestingly, Epic already featured Celeste in their free offer back in August, so if you forgot to pick it up, now's your chance to atone for that. Besides, Celeste is so great that it deserves to be downloaded twice.
"Help Madeline survive her inner demons on her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain, in this super-tight platformer from the creators of TowerFall. Brave hundreds of hand-crafted challenges, uncover devious secrets, and piece together the mystery of the mountain", the description reads.
Celeste is well suited to just about every age and it starts off easy, eventually immersing the player into a memorable narrative and visual journey. it won't be long before you and Madeline learn that Celeste is not an adversary to be trifled with.
Should you crave even more challenging gameplay, Matt Plays Games made sure to include a rich selection of unlockable B-chapters, and they're sure to make any masochist happy. Hold on....whatever, go download the game, it's free.
