Neon Nights - An Upcoming Summer Hack by Rye_

Super Mario WorldStandardWork in ProgressScreenshotsVideos

hello!! i wanted to take some time to finally participate in one of these, so i want to formally introduce my upcoming hack:

Neon Nights is a small "for fun" hack that i've been working on for a while now, and recently condensed so it will be easier to manage.

the hack will be a hard/very hard adventure that features mario (unless i decide to make player graphics), and i honestly don't know what the hell he's up to this time LOL

here are early level gifs so you all can get a feel of how the hack will look:

these are all concepts, so many level design things are on my to-do list for when the real stuff starts

also have some submap sketches!!

any custom graphics were and will be hand-drawn by me (including the backgrounds / layer 2), so i hope you like them!!


i am hoping to have this hack finished before or during summer C3 so i can show you all the fun stuff i've been working on.

thank you for your time!

These are some beautiful graphics and gimmicks can't wait to see more #smrpg{<3}

You are challenged by Champion Daisy!

Ooh, this looks nice. I really like the cool color aesthetic with all the blues and purples. There's definitely a lot of style in this hack.
Check out my WIP romhack!
Wow, those screenshots are beautiful. I would love to see more of this hack!
There is something very satisfying about seeing all of these GIFs of your beautiful levels side-by-side, especially with all that autoscroll.

I think you've heard most of what I have to say about these levels already from my having watched you work on them, but I will say, I'm so glad to see the fairy light level being fleshed out, and I'm also glad to see that new death section for the water level-- it looks like lots of high-pressure fun without those Bullet Bills being too face-rammy.

I will jump on the hype train and make it known that the gorgeous aesthetics you see are matched by lovely music to go alongside it.

I'm excited to see the final thing!

Difficult, short and sweet, and spectacular visual design? Checks all the boxes of a hack that looks like it'll be a blast to play and experience. Great job on this so far, Rye. Hoping you'll finish this within the time you're also wanting to finish it.
thank you all so much!!! it makes me smile so much knowing you like what i have so far #w{<3}
This looks very nice, I love the vanilla+ aesthetics here and these levels look to have some fun concepts as well. Look forward to seeing it come out, good luck finishing #smrpg{y}
Shit, I love these aesthetics! It's really cool how just adding these black bars immediately makes it look cinematic. Some of the mechanics here also look really cool. This hack could turn out really interesting.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
It's always lovely to see progress from this hack of yours, Rye! The aesthetics look so pretty and vibrant as usual, including the levels here I haven't seen yet. New logo included!

I also love how engaging you make your autoscroller levels look and feel, especially that fast section in the water one (even if they're all subject to change). And of course, the trademark letterboxing helps keep any player on their toes with less screen space to traverse around.

Looking forward to witnessing your project in its complete form as well, good luck have fun!! #smrpg{<3}
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
Honestly, just by looking at that fuckin' water level screenshot my jaw kinda dropped lol, good lord that shit looks amazing; kind of makes me want to go back and play a SMW hack again since I haven't been too interested in a lot of what's currently on offer (at least with standard hacks anyway), but both this and shit like APFAS (still need to play it btw #smrpg{ohno}) is kind of making me reconsider haha, nice job man #wario{:peace:}

thank you all so much for the kind words!! i've never spent this much time working on a hack before so i feel honored to have nice things said about my work

i've updated the original post with 4 new gifs!

one of which is an updated version of the water level in the second row (now with wavy water movement)

this has been so much fun, but now my brain is fried from working nonstop, so this is all i've have in this thread until voting #smrpg{<3}
