Celeste, the indie sensation, marks its 6th anniversary with a delightful gift to fans – a free 3D platformer that pays homage to the beloved N64 era

Did you catch the news about Celeste’s 6th anniversary celebration? The official social media account teased a surprise that’s bound to be both modest and impressive. The highly anticipated game has finally been unveiled as Celeste 64: Fragments of the Mountain.

This computer game offers players the opportunity to experience the enchantment of Celeste Mountain as they join Madeline in a charming 3D platformer. This game was developed within a short timeframe and takes inspiration from the Nintendo 64 era and the early days of 3D platformers.


Celeste has undergone previous reimaginings, as IGN noted. The developers took the game and gave it a new life as a semi-sequel for Pico-8, a virtual machine that faithfully recreates the nostalgic 8-bit computer systems.

If you choose to download Celeste 64: Fragments of the Mountain, players will be treated to additional dialogue that takes place after the original game, providing a follow-up experience. Unfortunately, this game is currently only accessible on the PC, leaving us longing for a Switch version. Nevertheless, it can be obtained for free on itch.io.
