My Hack in production! SMW: The Chaotic Halloween

Standard

What's up guys! My name is Antonio, and some here already know that I'm producing a hack, I showed it in this winter c3. But anyway, the purpose of this topic is to show my project and receive tips and feedback to make this project even better! But without further ado, here's an image of my overworld:

Are you reshaping these tiles to look more consistent or something?
Guys, I know this is getting redundant and repetitive but I didn't even present my project properly and I didn't show many images here.

--ABOUT THE PROJECT--
SMW: Chaotic Halloween is my first hack being made and it's in production. I've been working on it for almost 5 months I believe, and I was going to release a demo right away, with 8 outputs. It's just that it's very boring for me to keep moving and arranging the same levels all the time. So I decided to expand the demo, and I don't know yet how many outputs this expanded demo will have. It's a hack that I'm producing with a lot of love and affection, there have been times when I got angry, but it's part of it. I really sometimes can't deal with certain frustrations, for example I insert something in the hack and it goes bad. There were moments when I was questioning why I was doing something on top of something that already exists, but even so, I want to and continue in this project, because even me and everyone else doing something on top of something that already exists, it takes a certain amount of work. I expect some comments here, I'm not forcing or forcing anyone, but know that a nice, positive or constructive comment from you, I'll be very happy and grateful. I really hope you like the hack.

--HISTORY--
Bowser begins to remember his bad pasts, Mario always defeating him, always the same litany, he always won, and Bowser starts to feel very bad about it. Bowser goes into a great fury and realizes that Halloween is close, so he has an idea that instead of this date being a trick and treat party, he decides to turn it into a real terror, where everything will be ruined. He begins to have an intense and heavy routine of strength and resistance, he also begins to prepare the koopalings, making them much stronger than normal, Mario is alerted about this and will have to save the day. His adventure starts on the 29th of October, and he will have to go through extreme challenges.

--THEMATICS--
Halloween, obviously.

--DIFFICULTY--
Very Hard.

--AMOUNT OF WORLDS THE HACK WILL HAVE--
7 worlds and 1 special, totaling 8.

--NUMBER OF EXISTS--
I don't know very well, it will depend a lot, but I believe around 75, 80, 85.

--NEW THINGS IMPLEMENTED COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL SMW--

-Mario starts with 25 lives.

-More dynamic retry system.

-Walks 4x faster in Overworld.

-Mario in 8-bit (for some reason I like this mario)

-Various improvements, trying to make the level design as good as possible.

--INSPIRATIONS--
-The Quest of The Candies.
-Mario World Super (DEMO)
-Hack de Madeira.
-SMW: The Crown Tale & SMW: Quest for Gaming.
-SMW: A Super Mario Adventure 3.

--SCREENSHOTS--





Note: Yes, there are some glitches but I'll fix them. And I didn't show more screenshots because a lot needs to be fixed.

Heitor Porfirio, I remodeled these tiles that will be used in some phases, I did this to leave them with an improved gradient.

Oh yeah, I'm pretty excited about this hack! #smrpg{y}

And, I can even make a video of it when it releases! (and if I'm not too lazy, right?)
Thank You Very Much!
I'm very happy when I see threads of other hacks being praised, and I remember that mine is being too! And I'm also going to redo this cape phase, I didn't think it was so good, I think the cape was introduced too soon, but rest assured, I'll try to put in an interesting twist!

I like the art style but the old mario font clashes with it. Consider a recolored version of the SMW Mario, maybe use a nice yellow to stand out over background:



Or if you can have the SMW sprite redrawn as a cat.



I think that would really fit the aesthetic you're aiming for while looking different.

First, I really appreciate your comment and also about Mario's art, the idea of ​​Mario being yellow or the cat suit, it's not going to happen because I want something really traditional. I wasn't exactly thinking about leaving only Mario and Luigi in 8bit. I wish I could switch between normal Mario and Luigi and 8-bit Mario and Luigi, that is, I could switch between the 4 characters in overwotld.

Thats fine, its your hack just inspiring. To me the mix between the 8/16 bit art styles is very jarring. Even a redo with a hybrid style like this:



has more harmony. From a design perspective the characters visibility is crucial in terms of contrast and being eye catching. Personally I don't like the cat mario but added to illustrate. I do think your art style is cool though and deserves a main sprite that matches. Food for thought:



A repaint of the SMW sprite in a zombie style above fits your theme perfectly. I genuinely thought you were using the 8 bit sprite as a placeholder until you made a custom. Everything else screams lots of effort.

Your idea seems cool. I'm wondering if I edit Mario 8 bits, to make it look nice, or if I leave the original Mario. Again, I appreciate your presence here, and if you want to follow along, feel free. This goes for everyone, each comment from a different user here makes me very happy, but I also appreciate the presence of the same people, I'm happy that I'm not left in a vacuum and there are people supporting me!

Cool man, try it and see. Post up the edits of both and see what other people think but most of all use what you like best.

Well, I'll look into that yet. Maybe a mario with a pumpkin head, or your most saturated costume?
