I'm not entirely sure what got me into kaizo hacking exactly, but I've been inspired by a lot of people over the years. I was really inspired by JustinTAS's (SoulJester726/TheFinalBoss726) works in my early days of hacking. Later on I got inspired by Sokobansolver's hacks (mainly the original Mario Must Die). Now I'm mostly inspired by Sokoban, TheAbusefreakhacker0, and a few others inbetween (ft029 has come up with some really cool stuff).
worldpeace and his C|C hack, basically. When his updates became less and less frequent, I decided I might as well contribute, hence the final stages of my first 2 Kaizo hacks being loosely inspired by Forky. Eventually I found myself not consciously trying to be inspired by anyone in particular.
As for maintaining interest, that's kinda been a roller coaster. Item Abuse 3 has kinda helped with that. Then another boost of interest happened when it sucked away whatever small interest I might have had in regular hacking, like a Pokemon using leech life.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level I will ever make in SMM2 will be easier than Ultra Necrozma.
Oh yeah, I completely forgot worldpeace. The dude is a god.
The original kaizo series and the other weirdo hacks ProtonJon played.
Back then I already made Kaizo Levels just for fun (Munchercastle 1 No Name Hack), but after I lost my first channel and then the second channel on Youtube, I had no desire to Kaizohacking.

Someday I found Sokoban and worldpeace on YouTube and thought to myself why I'm not doing something like that ?


Yes Sokoban and Worldpeace are my biggest inspirations, MMD / C|C are masterpieces. PangaeaPanga and Katerpie is also one of the reasons why i started with Kaizohacking.


Too bad that Panga has canceled SMW Hack - World of Pain

I have many plans.

--------------------

I was, firstly , inspired by the original kaizo mario's creator. But other kaizo hackers have inspired me too. These hackers are: Gbreeze, TAFH (TheAbuseFreakHacker66) and Sokobansolver. Undertaker had some influence too. (Is my English correct? I don't know what I'm writing)
TheAbuseFreakHacker66 ? You mean 99

Thanks for the compliment. But this picture shows the truth:

I'm actually really flattered by this.

This was just a small, quick diagram with a general laconic concept, not really intended to be an encompassing database. There may be some hacks I wouldn't know 100% if they were inspired by anything in particular. I think a much bigger tree would be beyond the scope of this thread and too ambitious (could be an interesting art project).

Anytime I feel even remotely responsible for a thread going off on a tangent, I always regret it. I'm sorry for doing that here.

I gotta be unoriginal and say C|C lol. That mushroom-juggling sequence made me inspired to make puzzles of that insanity. It's hard to say if I ever truly accomplished that, but maybe I'll come back for a final Kaizo one-leveler and do what I always wanted.

Hey its you! How've ya been?
PangeaPanga, TheFinalBoss726, KaizoMan666.
Item Abuse and Glitch Abuse series.

A lot of people got me into Kaizo hacking over the years, such as worldpeace and Sadistic Designer, and also AzureBlade49's LPs. I was so fascinated with how the creators can think of creative usages for objects and sprites in harder ways and even whipped up an equivalent to Forky once, but I later dropped it. Looking back at it nowadays, I would say that it (as in, the level I made) lacked a lot of originality, and I went on to make a series of projects that went nowhere after releasing their demos (as of this moment, I'm secretly creating a hack that I presume will feature no inspiration whatsoever from any people in particular, and I hope it actually goes anywhere, but it depends on how motivated I am).

Right now, maintaining interest has been kinda mixed due to that. When I watch videos of upcoming hacks - no matter what genre they fit in - it comes back, but then it becomes more trouble than it's worth putting the ideas on paper and it ceases almost completely.

Yeah that looks pretty accurate to me! :D

Well, obviously my Kaizo hacks are inspired by the original Kaizo Mario World. My pit hacks were all inspired by Item Abuse.

Actually, the way I was first introduced seriously to kaizo and inspired to make my own stuff was by Dainegai and Panga like 6-7 years ago. Dainegai's TASes of item abuse and pit of despair really intrigued me, and resulted in me figuring out that they were not in fact single playthroughs, but tool-assisted movies. I had seen the Kaizo series before that, but it never awed me enough I guess to get me interested.

Now, most of my inspiration comes directly from the original three Kaizo hacks.
dainegai's Item Abuse TAS was the first thing related to Kaizo or even Mario ROM hacks that I saw, back in 2011.
