It is the case of Light bluewhich, despite looking like a game from the early 90s, was released in 2018.

In Celeste we will control Madelinea girl with depression who tries to climb the Celestial Mountain to face his inner turmoil and isovercome your fears and panic attacks. Along the way you will find highly dangerous situations. She will also meet various characters, including a hostile version of herself, who has been created by the mountain.
The game was created in just four days in a Game Jam, that is, in a competition where video game programmers concentrate to create a title within a limited time. The creators of Light blue they managed to prepare 30 levels with a fairly high difficulty. They were mainly inspired by the classic Super Nintendo games, specifically the last levels of many video games that, back then, were much more difficult than they are today. Ultimately, the game was released for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and computers (Windows, Linux, and even macOS).
The game he succeeded in his nichebut it did it especially among that public that was dedicated to trying to overcome the craziest levels created by the community of Super Mario Maker. For a time, the plumber’s game had two types of users: those who dedicated themselves to creating levels that they considered impossible to beat and the experts in platform games who, just a few weeks later, uploaded a video to YouTube showing how they had achieved meet the challenge.
