got 24 minutes all berries, what is gemskip and trueskip?
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)!
- 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.

Awesome mod I beat it with all berries and then tried gemskip but only got so far
you can hyper dash like in the original game just dash+jump while still being on the ground while before jumping
I had an absolute blast with this! I didn't realize that I had two dashes until - by accident - I hit the button again on screen three (I was like 'is there a trick I'm missing?'). Then I got to the end and saw there was a difficulty option, I realized that no, that actually was an intended other way to play! I probably won't attempt hard mode just yet, but in all, a very good way to spend an hour.
my up arrow pauses the game, is there any fix for this? :(
that's really strange, never heard of anything like that happening in PICO-8 games before.
make sure you're focused on the game screen by clicking on it, and if that doesn't fix it, what os / browser are you using?
is there a practice mod for foreverred?
Really cool Celeste classic mod! I enjoyed a lot.
342 deaths - 9 berries - 43min
After a couple of runs just found the snake minigame.
whats the golden redberry
NEW PB, 30 seconds off my previous best
Any tips for new people?
well, kinda, number 1 tip is try to be able to beat the original celeste classic, which you can find by just searching up celeste classic in search, its a much easier game and better for newer players to get used to the mechanics. some of the levels are kinda hard to beat, so i also recommend finding a video guide on the game or watching professional speedruns and seeing how they do things. this isnt really an easy game so even if you know what ya gotta do, it still takes some practice to be able to do efficiently. if you want to know some quick speedrun mechanics however, cause gemskip does require some speedrun tricks to do, you can wall jump off of spikes if you time it correctly. another thing thats possible is that if you space it correctly you can briefly, but i mean barely, get your dash back and walk on the top of spikes, however the window on where you have to land is extremely tight in most cases, and mostly this trick is only used in specfic secetions of gemskip. but yeah, those are my tips for a beginner. if you join the celeste classic discord (which you can find by literally typing celeste classic discord in google), there are people who are better then me to give much advice if you're interested tho.
Thanks for your advise stranger I'll take it to heart :D
Edit: I finished my first run thank you
nice, the game is really hard so seriously, congrats, so the next 2 things you should do is try to beat the game on normal but getting all 12 strawberry's (result is cool, trust me and isnt much harder then beating it normal, other then like 2 strawberry being semihard to get), then the next you should do is the pain in misery that is gemskip. ima just say how to commence it, you have to beat the first level without getting the gem from the chest to commence gemskip, also if you do it correctly the little gem in the top right by the timer will be green instead of the redish pink it is on neutral. gotta warn ya tho, gemskip is really hard so i recommend you pratice normal a few more times before jumping straight into the pain and misery that is gemskip. also, do
wall jump off of spikes doesnt work like that, first you must gain an odd parity by walking into a left border or a left wall, then you can jump off of left facing spikes/spikes on a right wall, hope this clears it up for you!
amazing mod, super fun, currently have a best time of 1 hour 15 minutes on gem skip and 5 minutes and 55 sec on normal. havent done true skip yet...
but also heres my normal pb for proof
new pb once againnn
now 22 seconds >:-)
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?
I am beginning to realize that trueskip is the supreme test of patience and skill
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
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
1400 m gemskip: is the berry possible? I think not, but please prove me wrong.
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
to continue the game with your changes made type
to make death work again type
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! :>
how do you enter console mode
this might be better than the original
Here is the trueskip mode found in the very first level
Yey! I did it for the 2nd time again.
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!
I just got an 11:33, but I made so many mistakes
i loved this its so much easier than the original and i suck at the original so ya :)
i stuck on second from begin
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!!!! 🕹️😎
