Yes, it's back. The "Big Boo's Legion" saga returns, with full of life, more excellent story telling, different and exciting levels, and more!
So, what's done for now:
- about 11 levels (I plan 40-50)
- a very little part of the OW
- the title screen, intro, story developement
Probably I'll release the hack in 2010. It will take very much time, I'm sure.
- Many-many ExGFX
- Bunch of custom sprites and blocks
- Custom boss battles
- nice choose of custom musics
I'll post screenshots in this thread in these days. Check it out later for sweet new stuff!
What's the plot for now? Check out this epic trailer, and find out!
Please enjoy, and comment in this thread, or on the video. I'm really interested for every opinions!
I worked quite hard on this trailer. I hope it will win something, or just be in the top 3. I'd be very-very thankful, if you will vote for this!
Whoa, whoa, whoa... this is actually one of the most professional trailers I have seen in a while! The hack also looks quite promissing - it's nice to know that you intend to include more levels in this one, as opposed to the original hack which only had a few. And oh my, the levels themselves just look excellent. Really LOVING your use of palettes, as well as the graphics you're using. Nice use of custom sprites, as well - I especially like that green monster boss who throws hammers everywhere, heh.
I remember playing the original "The Big Boo's Legion" (as well as I remember accidentaly rejecting it when you first submitted it... my faught. >_<), and I must say that this looks like an impressive sequel. Looks even better than the original, which really caught my eye when I played it.
I'm really, really looking forward to checking out this one!
Looks awesome Hadron! The first one was really well made, and it's cool that you're making a sequel.
The trailer is awesome. Pretty epic for a Mario rom hack (Though so is my trailer) and all the graphics and level design and such looks great.
Tip: This is not a paradox but simply an illusion to keep you scratching your head.
The trailer was very awesome, I liked it. I could tell you put hard work into it. The demo looks excellent as well. I am looking forward to playing your sequel. The first one was great. And now you are making an awesome sequel to it. Well done.
Your trailer is absolutely amazing, it's like a real professional movietrailer. I guess those blue eyes are the villain's - the trailer is letting you want to know who that is. The music fits perfectly...
I'm astonished by this...
I definetely want to see this one completed.
Many thanks guys for the comments! I'm really glad that you like the trailer and the pictures.
@Jakester: it's really that good? Honestly, I didn't expect these good comments. By the way, that was my 900th post, but not a problem. ^^
@LPY: Thanks, yes, it'll be waaay better than the first part. And yeah, I know it's a bit similar (since I played the SMI series too), but I can't think on a better title. And I'm totally done with the hack story already, so I even don't want to change it.
You like the title screen too? That's great! Actually, the BG is scrolling automatic fast, so the title screen is a bit more exciting than you can see on the picture.
@TheDutchLuigi: Thanks, I'm really glad that you like it so much! Yeah, I think I did a quite good work with the trailer. Fortunately I'm a bit good in video editing, and I thought I could make a trailer, so why not? And I think I have a little chance to win something, maybe just be in the Top 3. ^^
Aaaand...here are more screenshots!
Inside the Pirate Ship!
The next level, Deep Sea. You can find this little bonus-game, if you're clever.
Another level, Sunny Fields. I hope you like the palettes! ^^
Iggwig's castle, exterior. If someone can guess, where is "Iggwig" from, gets a cookie!
So, that's for now. If I'll get replies, you can expect more screenshots (since I can't double-posting in 24 hours, eh).
I prefer a consistent SMW-SMAS graphics style, but this seems pretty nice too.
I really love that Wand in the title screen, it looks really awesome. I've never been good at making title screens.
So yeah, best luck with this project, I hope to see it completed some time, because it looks very promising so far!
Looks good! I noticed a couple of minor grammar errors in the trailer, but it was very well-done nevertheless. The title screen looks okay to me. The design seems pretty decent from what you've shown us. I don't care for the palette of those red and yellow spikes in Iggwig's Castle, but just about everything else looks nice. I haven't played The Big Boo's Legion, but now I just might have to; I'm looking forward to the full version of the sequel.
