In this episode Sachin, Don, Fai (mental health doctors), and Hammy (medical student) discuss:

– Celeste: how does it portray anxiety in main character Madeline and how is the game’s attitude to mental health reflected in its design? (Check out this article that describes how a tough game like Celeste can be soothing: www.polygon.com/2018/2/8/16961386/celeste-stress )

They also discuss difficult games in general, and how “easy modes” are sometimes viewed negatively.
