As for Extremely OK Games, that name may sound foreign to you. Matt Makes Games is being retired, and the developer will be moving forward with the new identity. The company says, “The success of Celeste has allowed us to set up a lot of things that will make our work better, faster, easier, and more fun.”
Finally, Extremely OK Games has started work on its next name, code-named EXOK1. The developer says: “We’re excited to share more about it when the time is right. Right now we’re still in a very exploratory phase of development, sussing out what this thing wants to be.”
