Very sorry to see that downloading this project is no longer possible, but I've been reading through the thread and like everyone else, I'm genuinely impressed and I am looking forward to getting to play eventually!
Also, +1 to coming back to SMW hacking as a hobby after getting into professional game dev! I'm not out of school yet but have been working on a funded indie project full-time over this summer, and SMW hacking is a nice way to do game dev without feeling like I'm still at work!
I mentioned it a few posts back (which ended up being a few months ago now aaa @[email protected]
) but I will be putting a new download for the hack up once new improvements for the first week are finished, which are getting fairly close to now. What remains are a few music tracks, some level reworks, and obviously more polishing.
I love being able to realize my dream to work in the industry, but truthfully I find SMW more relaxing, if only because I don't need to deal with crunch haha... I don't foresee myself quitting anytime soon, though my motivation and mood are sadly very fickle. This is my passion project, and I plan to see it through.
Not really a new "update" with this by the way, but one of the things being planned for the hack are finally getting done-- cutscenes! There'll be a few spread throughout each world, but you can find a sneak at one below (sort of a continuation of my last post, and graciously coded by Sonikku):
