I played the demo and I have to say: this is a pretty awesome project, if you want help I can be a GFX designer. ;)

Well, Maybe you could just set up a new one... And make the poll last for however many days you want it to.

I appreciate the offer, but I'm doing this project all by myself, and I like it that way.

EDIT: Apparently, the poll got removed by a mod. Don't know why, but there was probably a good reason for it. I'll lay off the polls for now, then.

Sorry for not explaining so well. It kinda seemed like an icicle though.

Interesting project so far, and you don't seem like the kind of person to give up on a project after you're like halfway through it, so that's even better! :3
I would like to suggest that you recolor the small ponds on the world map. They contain colors that don't fit the style of the SMW world map.

Don't you worry, I'm not giving up on this project anytime soon. I've got too many ideas for this little episode :D and those ponds will be fixed ASAP as well.

EDIT: I've added my prologue story to the main post. Check it out!

I have a bug to report. The death effects for the dark Cheeps are missing in the Hidden Alcove level. Speaking of that level, are you going to change it around at least a little bit in terms of level design? Because waterfall jumping isn't one of the best gimmicks in my opinion.

Ah, jeez, I still forgot that one? :| I might put a couple more waterfall puzzles in there, but I have no intention of changing the core gimmick of that level. I'll put the bug on the list.

Ok, trying a poll again, let's hope it doesn't screw up now :P it's actually somewhat important now, too. For those that played the demo, you probably saw that I only use SMB1 item blocks, never any other style. Same with SMB3 coins and pipes. Does this bother you much? I'm willing to change it around a bit if people are genuinely annoyed by that.

Yeah, I love taking inspiration from other games, like The Binding of Isaac and ESPECIALLY Donkey Kong Country. You can come up with some pretty creative level concepts if you just imagine 'What if *insert game here* was in SMBX?' As for the boss, seems I set the bar high for myself with that one, eh? I've got all the boss designs planned out already, now I just need to find a way to execute them :D

I also found a VERY little bug with a single cheep cheep in gloom harbor.
One of them gets stuck in teh corner while descending to the ruins!

That isn't a very relevant problem but... Ya know... Just for saying...
Ok i couldn't find any other bug

Rather than another useless one where you can glitch in a corner right on top of the door that takes you in the alcole cave.
You can reach that with the leaf.

Ok i'm done ^.^

Vinyl Scratch on Disco Palace? 10/10 The best project I've ever seen

Quite seriously, this project looks good so far. I don't know why I not commented here before.
I want to see it completed.

Even small hiccups should be fixed IMO. Both these issues have been worked out, but I don't feel this calls for uploading another version just yet.
