The Celeste Strawberry Jam mod allows players to climb a new summit ...

Celeste, which was released in 2018, immediately became a critical hit, topping dozens of lists of excellent independent games and demonstrating how developers could combine gameplay and narrative in a tight, concentrated package. For the most avid gamers, however, that hasn't been enough to satisfy their hunger for platforming action. Many have even created mods to enhance the game.

Strawberry Jam is a collaborative effort that has been in development for over two years, and appears to include a few new abilities for players of all skill levels. One scene shows Madeline ascending through the air with an umbrella in hand.

Over 8 hours of original music will be included in the mod. All proceeds from sales and streams of the mod's soundtrack on Bandcamp will be donated to Trans Lifeline, a nonprofit that helps trans people in crisis. As such, the mod — and the original game — are a solid choice for anyone who wishes to play a game that is actively supportive of the LGBTQ+ community at this specific time in time. Keep an eye out for further delicious platforming fun.
