Hi,

Last C3, I showed some screenshots from my upcoming hack (here). The project is still codenamed Epic (and that might very well be the final name lol).

Unfortunately, progress those months has been slow, mainly because of work constrains and because I want to make sure the hack will be unique and polished. However, I still have some gifs to showcase from some asm resources of the hack:

Remember the hot lips from last C3?



A boss has been added to that stage... the

Hot Lips king



As you can see, it has a lot of different attacks that he learns as it gets hit, and at low HP it will also move from side to side before attacking to throw the player off. Beating it will involve a certain degree of disco shell manipulation: as you can see in the gif, you have to direct the disco shell towards him with the correct timing.

Sand Hands



The Sand Hands from Wario Land 3 made it into the hack! They will come out from burning sand (lava) and a single touch will suffice to kill Mario. They use up to 4 extra bytes to control speed, frames of "rest" between up and down movements and height, among others. They will appear in a pyramid level alongside other custom sprites.

Ravens



The ravens from Paper Mario and YI also appear here. They have their own gravity: the sprite uses some extra bytes to control speed of movement, frames between jumps (and if they jumps at all) and also direction of gravity!

Final words

Although the style of the hack is not pure kaizo in the sense that there might be more than one way to overcome a setup, it will still prove a lot of skill to finish, given that there are no free powerups in the hack, so expect some sort of genre-blending here.

As I said in the last thread, I don't really had any kind of deadline for the project, but hopefully I can have this finished for the 2022 Winter C3. It will probably have around 12 stages (each with 3 sections, evolving and combining gimmicks centered around one or more sprites. I have experimented quite a lot regarding design) and 5-6 custom bosses that are hopefully fun to battle (3 are already coded).

For people interested in the sprites, all of the asm resources (except from the bosses) will hopefully be released in due time after the hack is released.

I'm also looking for some playtesters for the bosses and the levels, so if anyone is interested, send me a PM on the site or a DM in discord.
As someone who also likes to design around my own ASM creations, I can tell it's one heck of a challenge to come up with fresh ideas to start with, and a second one to actually execute them. On the other hand, I really appreciate hacks that introduce fresh new resources (which are pretty rare).

Everything looks neat. I especially enjoyed the boss gifs. Looking forward to playing the hack! I'm sure the community will appreciate the resources a lot too.

--------------------
From the gifs you've shown, this looks like a lot of fun! I certainly love a good Custom Boss so that has me excited. Those Sand Hands look deadly haha

I wish you luck on the rest of this project!

Yooooo, more Wario Land sprites. That's sick. I remember how these hands gave me work when I first played Wario Land 3. More people should play the Wario Land series, they have a lot of fun sprites that would be neat in SMW. Also, finally, ravens in Super Mario World, I'm in joy seeing these small guys in action, I love them since I first played Yoshi's Island. So cute and charming.

Overall, I love your sprite ideas, Darolac. Keep up the good work in this hack. #smrpg{<3}
These are very creative nice gimmicks

There is something very original and interesting.
This is one of the hacks I'm most curious about.

I couldn't find anything to write :| By the way my Youtube channel
Your latest hack (Of jumps and platform) is absolutely incredible and has been a great source of inspiration for my projects (mainly my OLDC and "of springs and 1F0"). Can't wait to play this hack of yours when it's complete!

I suck at ASM and AMK

I love this style, and I applaud you for doing so many custom sprites and bosses. Keep up the good work!

Alright, maybe I should play this when this gets released. Because, now I can see it looks fun! I especially like the Sand Hands level. It's really creative!
Oh man, this looks awesome. I really like the overall style this hack has. Also, PLEASE keep the name as just "Epic" because that's incredible

--------------------
Check out my WIP romhack!
Am i late to say this is absolutely Epic? xD

Jokes aside, this hack is looking great!
You have a nice style of working with your own custom resources to create evolving platforming challenges thoughout a level (as has already been shown in Of Jumps and Platforms), and this hack is certainly no different!
I also like the mix of some different styles this hack is going for, which differs it from OJaP that was purely platform focused.

And of course, the fact you're doing all the ASM for this is impressive on its own. As a playtester, i can say i've seen you put a ton of effort into making all this stuff the best it can be. The Hot Lips boss is top notch quality ;)
This hack has been a lot of fun to playtest, and i look forward to what else you have going on for it, as well as the eventual full release!

Also how did i not know about those Ravens until now?!
The Ravens are probably one of the most unique things i've seen in a while! Each of them having their own gravity direction changes things up a lot!
Reminds me of Naro's KLDC2020 entry.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

I probably will, unless I can think of something even better.

I actually used another rip of yours for the ravens level. Glad you like it Anorakun, I try to keep things fresh with the hack.

Thanks a lot Nerdose. I'm glad you liked the hack. This one is going to be a ton more chocolate-like and also hopefully even more fun.

That reminds me that the ravens actually had an additional gimmick where hitting the ON/OFF switch would make them change gravity. It was a bit problematic getting it to work with the despawns/spawns of the same sprite, so I scrapped it, unfortunately.

I'm also looking for some playtesters for the bosses and the levels, so if anyone is interested, send me a PM on the site or a DM in discord.
These levels are awesome! Perfect for me

Ravens and hot lips king are my favorites out of what you've shown. SMW can always use more bosses.

That poor raven on the throw blocks though, I know it's just gravity but he get's yeeted right off the screen.
The sprites you've made are EPIC. Just sayin'!

Also, can't wait to see more of the progress soon...

Sprites and levels look so well-done. Really nice work Darolac!
Really digging how customizable these sprites seem to be, and from what I can see the levels are using them in some pretty clever ways as well. The Sand Hands are probably my favorites out of the ones shown. Keep up the good work!
