30-Day Video Game Music Challenge – Day 7

30 Day Game Music Challenge

Well, now I’ve gone and done it. I just haaaaad to go and break the combo I had going. Oh well, July has 31 days so as long as I don’t flake out on any more days I’ll still be able to get this done within the month.

Day 7 – Music From An Indie Game

Celeste / Resurrections

Composer: Lena Raine

Celeste very quickly became one of my all-time favorite games when it came out in 2018. The game was released during a time in my life where I was in the process of making some big changes, and struggling with a great deal of insecurity and doubt about what these changes really meant or if I wanted to go through with them at all. I desperately needed a game like Celeste at that time, and I am incredibly thankful that I was able to experience it when I did.

At its core, Celeste is a very mechanically sound and immensely satisfying — not to mention challenging — platformer, but it is so, so much more than just that. It is a deeply emotional journey with one of the most evocative scores I have ever heard in a video game.

As an aside, I also greatly enjoyed Lena Raine’s EP Singularity, which she released under the pseudonym Kuraine. Check out the rest of her stuff too while you’re at it!
