Foreverred is a mod of Celeste Classic that's been in the works for over a year. Starting as a update to my first mod, Everred, it grew into a full reimagining, and eventually into the biggest Celeste Classic mod ever released (and potentially one of the biggest pico-8 projects).

The mod is over three times the size of the original game, and features brand new levels, mechanics, sprites, and music (huge thank you to my friends Augie745 and RubyRed for the absolute bops they made)!

Controls:

  • Z - Jump
  • X - Dash
  • Arrow Keys - Move
  • E - Toggle Flashing Effects

Lots of credit to Maddy and Noel from EXOK Games for the original game, and to the Celeste Classic Discord for all the help and feedback. Extra special thank you to Gonen and Meep, who helped optimize, compress, and fit everything into one PICO-8 cartridge. This project wouldn't have been possible without them.

Really nice mod. As a casual player I enjoyed it a lot.

Cool mod. I got a 24 minute time first try. Gonna improve more hopefully!

This is probably the best Celeste hack i have ever played. I also love that you included the snake game like the pico 8 in Celeste.

maybe someday I'll speedrun, but I would have to be very desperate. now, just trueskip and speedrun

LETS HECKING GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally beat gemskip!!!!!!!!!! 1:55:02, 11 berries, 1137 deaths. LETS GO

YEESSSSSSSSSS I DID IT I BEAT 1900 GEMSKIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! am I supposed to somehow skip the second gem or do I just take it and do the rest with two dashes?

there's no way to skip it

oh wow this is tough

I am beginning to realize that trueskip is the supreme test of patience and skill

(1 edit)

three questions about trueskip: has anyone ever beaten it (other than taco360)? how long did it take them? how many levels are there?

quite a few people have done it, you can check out the speedrunning leaderboard here and click the "trueskip" tab to view the runs! https://www.speedrun.com/celestep8mods/full_game#Foreverred


also, i cleaned up some of your comments, as they were starting to flood the section, sorry. i'd highly recommend joining the Celeste Classic discord if you wanna keep chatting, link is in the game description

Oh that's really cool! I didn't know there was a speedrun page for this. I'll be quieter from now on. Now, what have I gotten myself into with trueskip?

hmm. what is trueskip? I know what gemskip is of course but what is true skip?

trueskip is AMAZING OH MY GOSH

How to do: on first level, open chest then go back right through the wall. that will open the way

but don't get the gem

1400 m gemskip: is the berry possible? I think not, but please prove me wrong.

(1 edit)

congrats on getting through 1100! yeah all berries are possible in all routes

Well unfortunately the page reloaded now and I have to start all over again . . . someday. (btw, on 1400 I ended up having to do the glitch where you can get your dash back from a spike. I thought this was cheese, but there's certainly no way to get the berry without it. Thanks for such an amazing mod!)

I love it but the screen should shake when you dash.

Played this on pico8 and this was so good. The levels were very well designed.

If you are trying trueskip etc and want to see the levels if you cannot beat them, you can increase your max jumps in pico8 in console mode

max_djump = 100

you can also disable death by spike by

aaa=kill_player
bbb=function() end
kill_player=bbb

to continue the game with your changes made type

resume

to make death work again type

kill_player=aaa

Back to comments - I know you only have 56 pico8 symbols left but it would be cool to use the pico8 persistent save functionality to allow save/load of runs so you don't have to complete all runs in one go.

yeah, a save / load system was planned for a long time but it didn't end up happening due to space limitations


also good tips for people who want to check out the trueskip content! :>

this might be better than the original

Hi this is the hardest but challenging mod and there is a secret when you are in "Graveyard of the fallen'' room you will see a gap if you go over there you will see a computer if you tap jump button while standing on the computer you can play a penguin snake game have fun!

VERY COOL THANK YOU

Amazing. A worthy successor to the original PICO-8 Celeste.

I liked this game, very well taco

Normal mode: 0:14:30, 12 berries, 73 deaths

Gemskip mode: 02:21:47, 8 berries, 1403 deaths, I suffered a lot with this mode

Man this game is addicting, I love the way you traverse in this game.

I love how you can choose to do it without the starting upgrade if you want more of a challenge. I'm trying to do a gemless playthrough now, but I'm stuck on 1200m :P


(0:37:02, 11 berries, 268 deaths on normal mode)

Great job!!!! 🕹️😎
