Lena Raine rains down stars, hearts, rainbows, announcement of Celeste: Farewell (Original Soundtrack)

While the video game DLC it coincides with does not yet have an official release date, Lena Raine — composer, BAFTA nominee, and excellent interviewee — has announced her next contribution to the Celeste universe. Celeste: Farewell is set for release on maybe September 1 — the date is subject to change — via Materia Collective.

Celeste is a game that, when people find out you own a Switch (it’s also available on Steam, PS4, and XBOX One) they immediately go, “Oh you need to play Celeste.” They’re not wrong. The platformer landed a spot on many a “Best Of” list last year — including our own — its excellent action and story made all the more enjoyable via Raine’s great soundtrack.

Now, the game and Raine are coming back for one last trip up the mountain — literally and figuratively — with Celeste: Farewell. Right when you thought you dodged your last spike bed too.

Describing the release, Raine says:

It was only through creating something different, and adding to the existing sound of the game, that I felt comfortable telling one more story for these characters and world…The soundtrack to Farewell might be off-putting on first listen, and I don’t know if people will like it less, as much, or more than what I wrote first. It’s impossible to live up to high expectations, so I did what I always do: try to stay true to what kind of story I want to express, and what emotions that brings out. I hope that worked.
