Hello everyone! We of Team Välfärd, developers of Extra Mario World
, are looking to expand our team! We currently have me in the programmer seat, PercentN in charge of tilesets and backgrounds, Eminus as sprite artist, and Ruberjig doing the music. We're primarily looking for level designers
. If you're interested in designing levels with several new mechanics ("chocolate flavor", if you will), then this position is for you! Note that we are not looking for one person to design all the levels; we are looking for people who can contribute with good levels. It would be beneficial if someone could helm the level design aspect of the hack, but this is not strictly necessary, as our team work approach to this has been working quite well so far. We still have 6 worlds left to design, so you would probably have a lot of influence in the level designer position.
There is also room for a sprite programmer on the team. I'm currently the only programmer working on this, so someone else who is skilled with ASM could speed things up quite a bit.
If you're interested in either of these things, hit me up here on smwc on or Discord!
In case you want a shorter introduction to the hack, I'll say this: People have called it "the next Brutal Mario", and I find that this is quite accurate. It's meant to be Super Mario World with extra everything: more playable characters (with co-op), new enemies and bosses, new powerups, a new story (minimalist, but still there), and new music. We do have high ambitions and we are getting there, but we can do it both faster and better with a stronger team.
You can find more info in our WIP thread
. We have additional screenshots and gifs, trailers, and a demo.
Here are some examples of our current levels:
