Heyyo! Welcome to our sometimes bi-yearly update on Super Mario Strugglez!
I know I have stated multiple times on my Twitter (and probably elsewhere) that we have set hard dates, and blah blah whatever for when we are going to finish the hack. Every time has been a lie. There are many things that have impacted our progress, but most of it comes down to laziness. However, it is finally actually looking like this hack will be finished! (famous last words)
We are nearly approaching 7 years of working on this hack, and basically every puzzle has been completed! There are still some things we need to make, but for the most part all that remains is break testing, decoration, music, and all that practically irrelevant junk.
Our new goal, which probably won’t happen based on our history, is winter c3! So fingers crossed, but things are looking good for the hack.
In the mean time, enjoy a comparison to how levels looked originally vs now that we have made them pretty (hopefully you agree).
Because I am lazy and am running out of time, you only get the following images.
Lastly, in case you are interested, nathanisbored has been busy trying one of the last levels in the hack. So far he is about 12.5 hours in and has only solved the first step. Check out his stream here to watch him struggle!
Levels Nathan has tried:
The Long Way Down – World 2-1, ~5-6 hours to solve.
Green Switch Palace – World 3-Switch, ~5-6 hours to solve.
Blind – Bonus World, 10 hours to solve [this level is only 1 screen long]
I Lava You – World 4-4, 12.5 hours in, 1/3 solved.
If you would like to try Blind yourself, we released a demo you can download here
