This is incredible. Congratulations on everything you've achieved since the original release of Celeste.

P#86784 2021-01-26 00:49

Wow, so cool!

P#86785 2021-01-26 00:56

hey nice to see that the sequel comes to pico8 first :D

P#86786 2021-01-26 01:05

amazing!!! thank you

P#86788 2021-01-26 01:46

Wow! What a surprise!

P#86789 2021-01-26 02:14

It looks really cool! :D

P#86790 2021-01-26 02:20

I couldn't stop playing. Solid controls and it feels really polished overall. Love the feeling the graphics convey.

3 strawberries
630 deaths

P#86794 2021-01-26 03:11

The more I played it, the better it got. Amazing work once again! It would be really neat if this were to be remade into a full game like the original, but I know you guys are currently working on something new. Either way, I wish you guys the best!

16 strawberries
238 deaths

P#86796 2021-01-26 05:28

Awesome! It took some time for me to get accustomed to the rope as someone being used to Madeline's dash in the original Celeste Classic game. I haven't gotten all the strawberries yet...

P#86798 2021-01-26 08:32

Really solid game mechanics and graphics. It was a little too difficult for me sometimes, it is definitely harder than the original game!

P#86799 2021-01-26 10:08 ( Edited 2021-01-26 10:09)

This is phenomenal! You can clearly see the lessons learned from the "big" Celeste game. Wow. I have a sore thumb! I hope this gets patched into Celeste on the Switch :)

P#86800 2021-01-26 10:32

Celeste again,what amazing!

P#86803 2021-01-26 12:03

Amazing! Steam release when? ;)

I didn't know what I was supposed to do here, so I found a way to double jump:

  1. Grab a snowball and jump
  2. Release Grab while holding Down, so it doesnt fly away
  3. To slow down your fall and bounce off the snowball, press Grab again (it freezes you midair while the hook is out)

P#86807 2021-01-26 13:58 ( Edited 2021-01-26 14:02)

Well this is a pleasant surprise, wonderful work!

P#86814 2021-01-26 18:23

Managed to get my personal best under 10 minutes and under 100 deaths! I think it's a little more challenging to get all the strawberries, though.

P#86821 2021-01-27 00:39

This is actualy so weird, it feels like a dream. Dont get me wrong, the game is fantastic but my mind hasnt processed yet that "Celeste 2" just came out, and on the PICO-8. On the game itself it was great! The snowball mechanics were a little bit weird at times but it didnt inpact the game.

P#86823 2021-01-27 02:44 ( Edited 2021-01-27 02:44)

I'm not sure how @Scrubz got 16 strawberries, but I've tried getting as many strawberries as I could! The strawberry in the room with all the snowballs falling down was pretty tough. Usually I mistimed snowball jumps, and I didn't fall down at the correct time to bounce off the falling snowball, collect the strawberry, and wall-jump out.

I managed to get this personal best on 15 strawberries:

And improved a little more:

Yeah, a good chunk of the time on that one room.

P#86824 2021-01-27 03:24

Great! I had lots of fun playing this one.

P#86826 2021-01-27 03:33

Have been improving my personal best of 0 strawberries! I don't know what else to say.

P#86828 2021-01-27 06:00

'<3' love it. as a gamer, a newbie game programmer and an aspiring game creator, this game is just all types of amazing. definitely an Extremely OK game. '<3'

P#86829 2021-01-27 06:12

Incredible, thanks for this surprise :)

P#86830 2021-01-27 08:30

This gives me the feeling of an old megaman game, including both the things I would expect people who like megaman to like and all the things I really don't like about megaman. That first area having a fake platform, for example, is inconsistent. Falling as scripted leads to a new area, but falling just a little earlier into the same pit leads to death. Then, the new area has 3 different ways that the player can go off the screen but 2 of them (the first 2 I tried by the way) go nowhere.

I find it bizarre that the game starts off with the ability to turn around and find a camper off-screen, as if exploration is encouraged, but then gates the player later at arbitrary screens. I tried looking for something to help get one of the strawberries in "level 1" and suddenly found myself in "level 2" with no way back.

One other thing, the wall jumping feels insubstantial. It feels less like the character jumping off of something and more like the character jumping in mid-air but with an unrelated requirement to be next to a wall.

P#86831 2021-01-27 12:23

So does this mean we're getting Celeste2?

P#86840 2021-01-27 16:39

Imagine if there is DLC for the actual Celeste (that is on pc and consoles) that includes a new story mode with this character

P#86842 2021-01-27 16:58

Great game to speedrun casualy! Sub 3 is possible, but I wonder whos gonna get it first...

P#86846 2021-01-27 18:53 ( Edited 2021-01-27 18:54)

So close yet so far...

P#86847 2021-01-27 19:09

This run was amzing! This was a fun game to speedrun but im gonna stop for now.

P#86851 2021-01-27 20:09

Now under 10 deaths! Still haven't gotten a sub-3 yet. You sure did better than me, Mr. Human!

P#86860 2021-01-28 02:49

Ha! I can't get past the first level in 3 minutes! You guys got some talent! Also, I am so proud of you Noel for making such a beautiful sequel to Celeste. I've been loving your work since I started Pico 8 and you've brought so much joy to me! Thank you for being awesome!

P#86862 2021-01-28 05:39

Finally got all 16 strawberries! I can't believe I didn't know about the opening in the ceiling in Level 1 in that it actually took you anywhere.

As you can see, you need to use the rope/hook to get up here, after you jump off the upper-most 1x2 platform with the spikes on its left side.

Let me know if you found out this path before you saw this post!

P#86863 2021-01-28 07:26

Sub-3 run!!!

P#86876 2021-01-28 16:02

P#86895 2021-01-28 23:00

P#86898 2021-01-29 02:43 ( Edited 2021-01-29 02:44)

Better run! It didn't take me much time to get used to the changes in this new 1.1 update.

P#86915 2021-01-29 11:51

cool :)

P#86920 2021-01-29 13:56

P#86969 2021-01-30 17:10

"Nooo, there was a berry at the start"

P#87040 2021-01-31 23:03

Oh wow, I did MUCH better my second playthrough

P#87057 2021-02-01 06:28

Wooo I finally finished! I could have improved a lot, but I'm still proud of myself.

P#87173 2021-02-03 21:20

Not as good as some here, but I'm pretty happy with my second playthrough! I managed to get the last strawberry on my second attempt of that platforming section somehow.
