Alright so all throughout the summer I went back in forth between ideas and could not stick to one main hack idea. Finally Aquamentus gave me the idea to not just stick to one main idea like I was doing. So then came the idea of a hack that had lots of variety and that no stage was anything like the other. The idea was to make them all unique, so that each level could be made into its own hack. A lot of the levels I put in this hack were originally going to be a lot bigger and its own 5 or 6 level hack, but I shrunk them into a single level in this hack instead. Mainly because I didn’t have enough ideas for the a full hack, It could of became repetitive that way.

Anyway I was going to work on this alone but then Aquamentus asked if he could help so it became a team/partner hack. We planned to each use ½ the map 16 space and create 7 levels each and then both work on the final level (meaning 15 total)

Fast forward to now we have all but 3 levels completed (includes final level) We are now getting a little slowed down by other work but hope to finish by the end of the year. We hope to find some testers to help us find any problems with the hack. If you want to test, just say so in this topic.

EVW stands for Extreme Variety World, it the best name I could come up with so far I may change it later.

I don’t want to spoil a lot of the level features but I guess I’ll mention a few of mine.

“Loss of Sanity” Mario explores a creepy mansion and occasionally loses his sanity and sees some weird things. I got this idea from the GCN game Eternal Darkness.(screen 6)

“Disfunctional” A level where everything is frozen and cannot be interacted with, then at the end of the level you claim a crystal that activates the entire level. You then must make your way back to the start. I got this idea from Legend of Zelda Wind Waker. (screen 8)

“Infection” A level where you enter a lab that may or may not get infected depending on how fast you move through the level (Made good use of time blocks). (screen 5)

This looks really interesting, with really creative level ideas. I don't think I'd be able to find a way to make them, had I thought of them before you...

Keep it up!

Yes, you could say I like Osaka.
This hack needs more recognition. It looks like you take some new advantages with the ExGFX given. I look forward to more.

Holy crap. This is amazing.
Everything you've shown here is unbelievable. I don't think I've seen a thread this awesome since A Strange Mission.
I love screen 1. Have Mario thrown into a 3-D game is great.
Screen 2 is okay, but smb3 stuff is eh.
Screen 3: Those graphics are great.
Screen 4: Aren't those YI graphics? That is a sexy way to use them.
Screen 5: One of the best recreations of Metroid I've seen. It rivals the one in Super Mario Omega.
Screen 6: I have no idea how you did it, but it worked. Really well.
Screen 7: The palette may be a bit too maroon.
Screen 8: That's probably the best screen you've shown. You can walk on everything like cement blocks, and everything is literally frozen. I have NO clue how in god's name you made that.
Screen 9: The flying segment looks sweet.
Screen 10: Hahahaha, wow. Just wow.

Awesome work. AWESOME.

Thanks guys we appreciate the comments!

Yeah I was wondering about that one palette, I'll change it up some.

Actually those graphics in screen 4 are from Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga.

Oh and for screen 10 that is my favorite and weirdest level creation, I hope you guys enjoy playing it when this hack is released.

I wasn't expecting this when i saw the thread, but this hack looks fucking great.

Great GFX, great level concepts, M&L Luigi dancing backwards and forwards... This could be one to watch!

This looks like it will be intresting.
Ow ow ow Pain? I don't think anyone would have came up with that idea.

This is looking remarkable. Keep up the good work. ;)
This hack is one of the best i've seen. Mario's GFX clashes with those super detailed graphics, though.

i just lurk sometimes
it looks real fun, andf really cool, if you need (and i hope you do) a play tester i'll test it for you :)


Will test hacks C[:
just PM me :)
Wow... Judging from the screenshots and the video you provided, it looks very good. I'm looking forward to it. I've personally never seen 3D elements in a SMW hack.

Much Overdue update wouldn't you say...

If you want to access the final level, Source of Variety, then you better activate 4 switches. At the end of each stage is the Aqua Switch Palace, where you get to choose between 4 switches. This means you only have to beat 4 stages to access the final level. You are of course encouraged to play them all.

Yoshi and Berries, not much to say as Aquamentus made this one.

Our OW is almost done as well expect it to be shown soon.

All 15 levels complete!

The hack is just about to the testing stage so I'd like to ask if anyone would be willing to help us test this 15 level hack!

If you are interested PM me or Aquamentus, or simply post in this topic. The faster I get this tested the faster everyone can play it!

This is one of the strangest hacks I've ever seen. I'd love to test this.

Good fucking bye.
This hack looks, based on the screenshots and ideas behind it, quite excellent, and I would love the chance to LP it, with your permission.

Since it's only 15 levels, I'll be happy to test it. This looks great and I can't wait.
Heh, this looks like a cool hack, some of the ideas are very creative. I would like to test it.

Your layout has been removed.
Wow thanks guys, I'd thought I'd be lucky to get one tester

I should have the Beta version sent to you guys by Monday or Tuesday.

Testers List

@ Lu-kaz:
Sure you can LP the finished version, but I'd rather you not LP the beta version in case it still contains embarassing mistakes!

I will test too, this looks really good, maybe even worthy of a featured hack upon acception. Sign me up please!
This looks amazing, I will be a tester also.

EDIT: although, I may not get back to you until Saturday or Sunday because I have school.
