I've been listening to those while I was browsing through the C3 forum again just now and they are all very catchy! The game seems to have a very bouncy and nice soundtrack and you have captured that very well. Overall a bunch of very sweet and lovely ports!
I go away for one evening to play Minecraft and there are so many replies suddenly. Apologies in advance for this late response!

Is the unmasked Taijna a complete redraw of the hooded version, or are they two forms that can both be accessed?
Initially I have made the unmasked version to replace the old one, yes. But some people have said that they liked her more with the mask on so I decided to have it be an unlockable feature at some point in the game.

If there's one criticism I can give, it's that the background of the level shown in the video looks a little barren in the top. I thought the level had a weird "empty" feeling, and I believe decorating that area somehow would make it feel a lot better.
Yeah the lack of decoration has been annoying be for a while too. I think when I find the time and motivation I will go on a big decoration spree because I definetly have the space to fit some.

Although I do have to ask, why does the timer continue to decrease when the "Level Clear" message appears?
This is one of those bugs that is so harmless that you keep on unintentional procrastinating about fixing it and it never ends up happening lol. Ideally the timer would stop as soon as the transition to the Level Clear message happens.
Overall I am really overwhelmed with the sheer amount of feedback and impressions I have recieved with this hack reveal. I'd have never imagine that my little green girl would get as much attention as she has gotten now. A massive Thank you! to everyone who has left their thoughts on this here, it means the world to me.

First off, I've been wanting to make a full drawing of Taijna to celebrate the proper hack reveal this C3.
It's a slightly bigger Image so
Secondly, I have uploaded a video of another level! Please take a look and let me know what you think about this level as well!
I have also added the drawing and the video to the original post.
Alright so I usually try getting some resources done between each C3 which I can release, but I've been too caught up in my hack this time and don't have any resources to release. However I didn't want my little C3 series to miss out in only its third iteration. And since this series also usually worked as a way for me to showcase random junk I've been putting together sometimes, I figured I could use this thread this time to showcase some Music I've made.
I began toying around in FL Studio since late 2019 and since early 2020 now I have actually shared some of my creations on Soundcloud! I have shown off the first 2 tracks at the very end of last C3 already but I'd like to post them here again just to have everything together.
My first "full" track I have finished. I had no real goal with this song, I mostly wanted to mess around with Pokemon DPPT samples in an interesting way. It ended up sounding like a kind of mysterious and grand song for a really strange place..
First new song! This one actually has some background for once. Earlier this year in late spring I've went to a nearby lake with a friend and the feeling of "spending a nice evening on a lake with nice people" made me want to make a song fitting of that feeling. Also I just so happened to have watched a video on Bossa Nova music before and I was really wanting to make one myself. Two birds with one stone!
Alright this last one is a little different. I sometimes spend a full day messing around with random game soundfonts and the Crash Bandicoot samples really caught my attention. So after the usual bit of messing around I decided to turn this into a full track for an unused Crash 1 level. Specifically the Waterfall stage. This songs cover also comes from this exact unused level. I really hope I could capture the Crash Bandicoot-y feel nicely with this one!

I know this is quite the unusual and messy thread for C3 but I hope some people can enjoy this still.
That's a lot more replies then I would've expected for some silly music. And a lot of kind replies at that! Even though I don't have a big goal with what I am composing currently (beside maybe some character motifs), I been really enjoying just coming up with stuff. I really appreciate the positive feedback on these!

pick your poison and I can send you the FL files or whatever you may need!
This has to be by far one of the most ambitious and unique SMW hacks that I've seen show up recently. The dedication for this project is unlike anything I've seen before and I'm looking forward to all the new and interesting craziness that can be found in this hack.
The level you've shown here is very sweet imo. It's hard making water levels fun but I think you've definetly succeeded with that here.
Keep it up!
I was 100% sure I've made a post here but apperantly I forgot?
Pincito my friend I could listen to your music over and over and over. Your compositions hit just the right nerve for me. You're a perfect choice for Heragas BS SMW project. Through the Mountain sounds like a mid-game Kirby stage, I can imagine how itd look really well for some reason...
And Good Morning is just incredibly pleasant to listen to. It's like a mixture of SMW and Kirby Samples alongside some Genesis-y sounds and with a Sunsoft feel. And it's incredibly bouncy!
Really, really great work! I am always looking forward to new compositions you're making.
