You've been asking for it (not really) and waiting for it (also not really). Now I have proof of it (NO GOD PLEASE NO).
Touhou Xtreme ~ A Scarlet Revenge
(Originally was gonna be called "Despacito 7", but with the story below the image, there's no way this game will survive with that title)
HISTORY ABOUT ITS MAKING:
After many years of playing a ton of Super Mario World / Sonic Trilogy romhacks, I wanted to get in on the action! I started my first real attempt in making my own romhack (and not some remastered version of the original SMW) in summer of 2017... but that was a failure. The level design was crap, the levels were short & unbalanced in difficulty, not all of world 1 was finished even though I started making world 2, and it had a terrible story for an RPG styled story sequence. I ended up losing all of my progress after that summer (Thank God!).
In December of that same year, I decided to give it another try... and it was better. I got done with three levels that were very similar to what I did previously, but the levels were long enough and have better design to it. I ended up losing motivation in January and gave up... for at least four months.
Later in April, I was watching so many hacks and playing so many more hacks, that I got re-motivated to finish what I started. Luckily, with school almost ending, I was able to finish world 1, so that gave me time for the summer to be focused on World 2 - 4. Most of the levels are similar to their previous counterparts in my old attempt except for one level (I made it a special one). During the summer, I got done with all the levels in the last three worlds (Worlds 2 - 4). I even fixed the story to be more like a dramatic one rather than your normal "heroic protagonist" saving the day.
Long time ago, there were heroes that defended the Mushroom Kingdom (you know who they are, but we expect you to act stupid and not know who they are). But now, in the year of 2036 A.D., all of them are gone, along with many other villains of the past disappearing. At that moment, peace was finally found within the Mushroom Kingdom for the rest of time. Young Talia lived after those events in peace, until one day.
One sudden day, when Apollo came to visit Talia (after so many years, but you'll know more about it in the game), they were invaded by none other than Gensokyo's
(she's back, my dudes). She took out everyone of the royal class, except Talia. While Talia and Apollo were escaping, Apollo gets caught by Remilia's chain and was dragged back. Talia kept running without looking back. She got out and escaped to an island far away and lived there since. During those years, Remilia took the chance to revise the kingdom to her liking. She renamed the kingdom to the Scarlet Kingdom
Seven years have passed and Talia still lives on that island. Now she wants to go back, put an end to Remilia, and save the Mushroom Kingdom... but during her adventure, Talia will find out some dark truths about Remilia.
This is just the beginning of the story... but the end of the peace. It's your job to restore peace to the Mushroom Kingdom.
> This is a much more darker, serious, and dramatic, than your usual Mario / Touhou / Sonic / Castlevania / etc. game.
> I wouldn't recommend tying this to the SMG4 universe / Mario universe / Touhou universe / Touhou Mario universe since it's own universe that features all these characters. Sure some references from other games are mentioned, but they're just minor details to make the game much more cooler.
THIS ROMHACK FEATURES:
> RPG like story that'll make you FEEL for the characters.
Hardcore gameplay that will test your skills and knowledge! I expect you to know some of your basic crap from the original Super Mario World and previous four Mario games.
> Two main characters and a special guest (each playable on a world-per-basis, but World 4 is different):
- The daughter of Daisy Toadstool (Who you start the game as). Very heroic in personality, but silly at times in some situations. (not a shrine maiden)
- Talia's best friend who was kidnapped and brainwashed by the main villain. He's just as important as Talia, if not, more. He has a very dark past with Remilia... it's one that's very important especially when halfway through the game. You fight him in
Secretly he's the son of
- Youtuber who owns a pyramid in
. He's a very special guy and more than just a palette edit of the original GFX32.bin. [Link to his channel is on the name] He has a weird personality and claims to be the LORD of the MEMES (yes... 21st century culture invades this game).
> Many characters that will make you hate this game.
> Memes that will make you rethink your life (You know I had to do it to them
> Remastered songs that makes Sonic Mania's soundtrack sound like it was made by a six year old! (NOTICE ME WAKANA SENPAI)
> References to some crap you might know.
> Four worlds of long levels that will test your skills (This isn't going to be your normal romhack that you're used to.)
> Throwbacks to classic levels in an all new experience.
> Minibosses in each normal level (Just like in Doki Doki Panic & Sonic 3).
> Praise the Mega Man X1 Override Guitar!!!
> The Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil II

- NOTE: Not all these levels have screenshots, even though I should've added them... I'll try to get them sometime in the future. Also, I have a tendency to change songs a lot, especially since I'm learning how to port my own without having them sound like crap. Just something I wanted to say.
This romhack includes profanity, sensitive topics, etc. If you find any of those to be considered offensive, DO NOT PLAY THIS ONCE IT GETS RELEASED!
I can't say I didn't warn you!
The beta is out for testing for those who want it. Grab it here
> Note that a newer update with the SA-1 chip in mind will be made in the future.
