After teasing some farewell levels for Celeste late last year, one of the game's co-creators, Matt Thorson, took to Twitter yesterday to detail exactly what we can expect from the upcoming DLC. Coming free to all platforms, these additional levels will be leaving the iconic strawberries behind, but they will feature a few new items and mechanics to make up for it. There's no word on when this DLC will be available, though they unfortunately won't be ready in time for the game's first anniversary on January 25th.

This makes it an attractive place for indie developers, but AAA teams are getting in on it as well. Epic just got their biggest win yet with some strong support from Ubisoft.

Super Mario Odyssey was one of the top games of 2017, and it was an especially big hit with retro gamers. The Switch exclusive is a brilliant tribute and follow-up to the classic 3D platforming adventures of the late 1990s and early 2000s, reminding its nostalgia-loving fans of games like Banjo-Kazooie. In that spirit, modder ItzSka decided to take the classic Clanker's Cavern level from Banjo-Kazooie and insert it into Odyssey.

If you're anything like me, you were probably ecstatic when Celeste got a Game of the Year nomination for The Game Awards 2018. It may not have won, but the team at Matt Makes Games did go home with two other notable awards: "Best Independent Game" and "Games for Impact." The latter, according to the Game Awards site, is "for a thought-provoking game with a profound pro-social meaning or message." If you've played Celeste or are at least familiar with its themes of struggling with depression and anxiety, you'll know this award was very well deserved. As someone deeply touched by the game due to my own anxiety, I wanted to talk about how Celeste brilliantly blends this story with its challenging gameplay, and why that hands-down makes it my game of 2018.

Since then, several groups of fan developers have attempted to recreate it at various times, and yesterday a completed version was released for free.
