Previous C3 thread:
If you don't know what the challenge is, I'm making a hack that is meat to be very difficult, and by this I don't mean your average hard hack, I mean something that will give you a hard time no matter how experienced you are. However, I'm not crossing the line of kaizo here, so with a lot of patience you will be able to beat all these levels savestateless.
What's new? Well, here's the story of the hack: there's no story, at least not inside the fourth wall. Yeah, that's right. I was planning to make it about Bowser or some other character issuing a challenge on Mario, but since the focus of the hack is difficulty, I thought the best person to issue this challenge would be myself. Mario won't take part in the story, he will just be your tool to clear my levels, instead I will be the one speaking directly to you in the hack through dialogues and message boxes, the story takes place outside of the fourth wall and you are the main character.
As always here's a small status update: I barely touched this project in 2014, but this year I started working on this again, I've done five levels since the summer 2014 C3 (that a lot, I know), and I have been working in the overworld too. I was planning to give you guys a playable demo, but that will have to wait until next year because I still need a lot of ASM and bosses to be done. In the meanwhile, enjoy this
Note: as always stuff may change in these levels, also if you see the status bar has weird colors, don't worry, I won't even use it in the final version.
