So you guys may know about this My Little Pony-themed hack I'm working on called Super Alicorn Sisters: Return of the Tantabus
. Well, I'm not satisfied with the story I came up with, so I decided to cancel it. Well, perhaps "cancel" isn't the right word. I'm going to keep the levels and world I thought up of, but I'm going to completely change the story and make the hack far more ambitious. I'm not quite ready to reveal this hack yet.
However, here's one I am going to reveal. It'll be a My Little Pony-themed hack called A Night in the Dreamscape. A character named Princess Luna is one of the 2 rulers of the country My Little Pony takes place in. She's in charge of raising and lowering the moon every dawn and dusk. She also creates the night sky's stars and enters the dreams of the people in the country to get rid of their nightmares. This hack will focus on that last point. It will be a collection of levels with no story, and you'll be able to do them in any order. Due to the nature of the hack, it won't really have an ending. I could just keep adding levels until the maximum of 96 is reached.
The game's levels will be dreams, and you as Princess Luna will have to destroy the source of the dreamer's nightmare. However, because the game's levels will be dreams, dreams aren't really fixed. They morph a lot and are just your imagination. With this in mind, I'm going to use the SNES's mosaic registers to make the levels look like this.
(Mario isn't there because I disabled the player graphics routine.)
Do you guys like this idea? I discovered that on accident. I was working on a hack a year and a half ago and was having problems. That was what happened due to one of these problems. I loved that effect, so I'm deciding to intentionally invoke it for dream levels and other surreal levels in my hacks.
However, I haven't really been able to work on it because I've been waiting for anonimzwx to release his Dynamic Z update this C3
. This is because the player graphics will be HUGE. The player will normally look like this,
which could be done with the previous Dynamic Z version, but she'll be able to be powered up to look like this, which will require the new version he just released.
However, I do have a video of me moving around the over world.
So what do you guys think of this hack concept? Do you guys like it?
