Celeste Android Theme for KLWP

 

Celeste is a side-scrolling platformer created by Matt Makes Games Inc. The game was released on January 25, 2018, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux. It follows a young woman named Madeline as she climbs Celeste Mountain, facing opposition from both the mountain's natural obstacles and from within herself.

I decided to make this android theme after completing the game and thoroughly enjoying it. It has a fantastic story line and amazing game play. Not to mention a brilliant soundtrack. 

The screenshots shown above includeg a paid icon pack: Pix-bit. Which are not included in the .klwp file. You will need to purchase those separately.

How to apply this theme

Prerequisites

  1. You need an Android device with Android 5.0 or newer.  

  2. You need Kustom Live Wallpaper (KLWP) Pro version. (for you to import custom themes like this one.) Link.

  3. You also need a 3rd party launcher like Nova Launcher. Free version will work. Link.

  4. Pix-bit icon pack. If you want the exact set-up as shown. The .klwp file I have provided does not include the Pix-bit icon pack since it is a paid pack. Link.

How to import and set-up

  1. Download the .klwp file from the resources section below. The .klwp file I have provided does not include the Pix-bit icon pack since it is a paid pack. 

  2. Copy and paste it into your 'Kustom' folder on your android device. Paste it into :'MainStorage'/Kustom/wallpapers/ folder

  3. Open Nova Launcher, follow the on-screen prompts to prepare the homescreen for the theme.

    • Start Fresh.​

    • Choose Light or Dark.

    • Select swipe up.

    • Remove all elements on the homescreen pages by holding it and tapping remove.

    • Go to Nova settings: Look and Feel. Disable the notification bar and choose the icon pack to change all icons across the device.

    • Go to Home Screen and remove the page indicator. Keep the dock for now since we need it to access the app drawer. We will disable this later.

  4. Launch KLWP.

  5. Tap the top left hamburger to open the slide out menu.

  6. Tap 'Load preset'.

  7. Go to the 'Exported' tab and click on the theme to load it in KLWP.

  8. Tap Save on top right corner.

  9. Make sure to disable the dock in Nova Settings > Homescreen > Dock > Disable.

  10. DONE!

To change the applications

  1. Open KLWP.

  2. Scroll to "Apps" and open the group.​

  3. Tap "Apps".

  4. Now tap the desired app and then change the image. You can select the image from the icon pack, Pix-bit in this case, or any of your choice. Can even replace it with a png.

  5. Go back to Apps folder and rename the app you just changed. Do that by marking it and hitting the edit button at the top right.

  6. Go back to the root KLWP folder (The folder that you see when you start KLWP).

  7. Scroll right, to "Shortcuts" tab. 

  8. Change the particular shortcut to open your app. That is, choose the appropriate application for your icon.

  9. DONE!

Remarks

 

This theme is not perfect. (Hence not on play store). I do this in my spare time. There might be a few issues depending on device. Most probably not. But I'll be happy to help.

 

This theme was made using a Galaxy Note 9. So it should be compatible with devices with similar screen ratio. That said, it should also work with most modern phones.

That should do it. If you have any troubleshooting questions feel free to contact me via the website, or Twitter and YouTube comments. 

References

The images and gif used in the theme are taken directly from the game. The icon pack is pix-bit icon pack which you can find on the play store. I have simply assembled the files to build this theme. Most of the images are taken from the game's wiki.

Thanks to KLWP and Nova Launcher for their applications.
