So how does the 2019 model stack up to the original?

We like to keep our eyes on up and coming indie games here at Gamnesia, and one I've been watching for years is YIIK: A Postmodern RPG. As an avid EarthBound fan, I was intrigued by the idea of a game partially inspired by the canceled EarthBound 64, but as I discovered when I went hands-on with a review copy of the game, YIIK is a solid and unique experience on its own. Acck Studio's latest game just launched on Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.

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.

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.
