In the options menu for Celeste, there’s a setting to enable Photosensitive Mode. I tried enabling it out of curiosity, but I didn’t notice anything change.

What does Photosensitive Mode do?

  • Generally such modes reduce flashing lights & flickering. You may not have come across such an effect in the game yet. – CyberSkull Feb 7 '18 at 8:31

According to the developer Noel here:

It disables screen flashes and other visual effects that may bother people.

    It's nice seeing devs making games more accessible to everyone, this and color blind modes are probably one of the best things to add to help out users. – Codingale Feb 7 '18 at 16:50

    @StevenVascellaro Yes, this mysterious GrammerAngel chap is clearly very kind and courteous, and also probably very handsome and generous. Let's all be his friend. – user149305 Feb 7 '18 at 17:20
  • Having played further, a good example is the ending of Chapter 5. Several visual effects are toned down or removed altogether. – Stevoisiak Feb 13 '18 at 2:48
