Tip: Avoid "item babysitting". Do not force the player to drag P-Switches or springboards all around the level. This is not fun, nor does it make for interesting "puzzles".Not logged in.
Taijna and the Mana Seeds - Update!

Hey everyone! I'm really happy to finally be able to properly present my hack this Summer C3 2020. Some people may have seen snippets of this Hack on the Discord server already, but now, after roughly 5 months, it is time for a proper reveal with details and all!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

What is this about?

In this hack you take control of Taijna. She is one of the last remaining people of the Floszilles Tribe and their sacred artifacts, the Mana Seeds, have been stolen! It is now her duty to travel through the entire Heartrone Kingdom to bring back the Mana Seeds and stop whomever stole them.

According to my current planning the hack will have 5 worlds/chapters with 4-5 levels each. While this won't add up to an impressive amount of levels, I hope I can still manage to deliver a fun and original experience.
Mechanic-wise the key feature that differentiates this hack from SMW is its use of the Spinjump. My attempts for an original hack always had way too ambitious mechanics that required an immense load of custom ASM made, which is why this time I have decided to focus on an already existing SMW mechanic and expanding on it in ways SMW hasn't done.

Screenshots and Videos

And what's next?

For the hack? Well hopefully I can find the energy and motivation to eventually finish this. It is really hard for me to work on this. And for this C3: I hope to record and post a video of another level I have finished recently. Depending on the interest of this thread I may also go more in detail with other parts of this project that I have barely touched on so far.
That said I hope some people enjoy what I have planned with this project. A lot of effort went into this so far. I hope you guys can appreciate this project for what it is (and what is to come!).

It is beautiful, I want to know more about the project#smw{:peace:}
Aside from the Coins in the first screen this does not really look like SMW at all which is crazy.

The level of detail you've managed to create with the tilesets is pretty spectacular not to mention that insane Book Overworld thing you have going on.
Really hoping to see this be finished. Having like 4-5 levels a world is pretty reasonable in terms of it actually getting finished so I really do wish you the best of luck with this project Tob. #smrpg{y}
Wow! I've never seen a Mario sprite replacement that has moved so smoothly. Everything is looking fantastic and fun. There seems to be a lot of love and effort put into this thing. I like when people try to make something that doesn't even look like a SMW hack. Looking forward to more! :)

Looks very nice. Like the whole atmosphere and where this is going. Keep it up!
That character does have smooth animation.

As I've said before mr Tob this is really pretty looking and cool! Definitely looks like a whole new game than just a reskinned SMW. Everything is coming together nicely.

I hope to see more on this #tb{^V^}
Your hack look very cool.

I like hacks that change the game graphics and looks to something like a indie game so am very interested for this hack

Wow, this hack has Really Good Graphics

Great Project! #smw{:TUP:}
Hello I'ts a Me Kirbo.
I think I've only seen the character sprite before now, but all of the graphics look great! I really like the storybook-style overworld, too.
Working on stuff again đź‘€
I'm certainly on board to play this when it comes out.

Please pardon the eye.
I love all the graphics you've drawn! This hack is looking very nice aesthetically Tob, great work!
Is this even SMW anymore? I mean, the SFX are different, and the graphics are different, the player seems to control differently than Mario, the only thing that gives this away as not being an indie game or something is the Sonic music in the BG! Great stuff.

Currently working on:
Super Kekcroc World 3
With all those changes, I expect this game to be quite far from the regular SMW.

It seems that over the past few years, there's been quite a few hacks starring women who have lots of animation. No complaints or nothing, I appreciate the trend.
Is the unmasked Taijna a complete redraw of the hooded version, or are they two forms that can both be accessed?


Currently working on Æther: The Infinite Library!

That looks very nice tob, I hope to see more about Taijna's Quest
To know more about the backstory of the character and what will happen for Taijna need to go out on an adventure #smw{;)}
Wwwwwwow!! Those are some really good graphics! I wanna see how this hack ends up.

What-A-Blast has been cancelled...

I'm really liking how this hack looks thus far! The graphics (as well as the aesthetics) are so pretty, and I find the story set up to be quite interesting. Speaking of story, the way you've incorporated that into the world map is very cool too. Taijna herself seems to be a neat character, her color scheme is especially pleasing to look at.

I definitely hope to see more of this project of yours down the line, Tob. Keep it up!

What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
This is some really beautiful stuff. The presentation's not something I've seen before and it's pretty cool.
I think I saw this on discord. It looks really interesting just please make it so that its fun to play. A lot of hacks are way too hard and not enough fun.

It should be like 80% fun 20% challenge.
