I'm not the creator of yy-chr, we just have similar names.
I'm Y.Y., I'm a beginner artist, amateur hacker and also an enthusiast of learning about cultures and languages. My speciality is making weird levels that are kinda janky and feel like they're from 2008, I love having cool ideas that are too ambitious and then struggle to execute them. lol
I've been into SMW hacking since the late 2000s and early 2010s, but despite all that time and so many projects, I still haven't released anything!
Since I'm young enough to have experienced SMW hacks from the old days (mid to late 2000s basically) when I was kinda little, but also old enough to have played all the old Mario games as a kid (all the 80s and 90s games), my preferences tend to gravitate towards hacks that give off that vibe.
My favorite types of hacks are the ones that feel somewhat different than the original SMW, hacks try out weird and cool ideas. Because I'm kinda nostalgic towards older hacks, I have a soft spot for certain visuals and design choices that aren't too common nowadays (outside of the YUMP series apparently), I can be considerably generous towards pretty much any hack compared to a lot of people, as long as there's something I find charming about it, I'll probably like it.
If you're curious about some of my favorite hacks and you want to try them out, here's a little list!:
Alright, I'm updating this bio again because it has been a long while since the last significant change.
So... right now, while I still love SMW hacking, I'm trying to focus on drawing, writing and just practicing my art skills in general, and also studying languages.
This means pretty much all of my hacking projects are on hiatus for a while. I really want to be an artist and I can't wait to eventually share my stuff with everyone!
Currently, I have about 4 hacking projects or so, I'm struggling to find motivation to do them.
My focus now is one simple short hack, which I still have no name for. But even that has gone into development hell and left me without motivation.
Seems like I'm not able to make something truly simple and everytime I try something new I make even more ambitious project. Oh well, I'm afraid of starting out any new project at this point.
EDIT March 2020: Well, despite all odds, I'm doing it again! Oh, I really don't know how to stop.
Well, it's basically a vanilla hack, so I better get this thing done soon!
