THE MUSHROOM KINGDOM IS REACHING ITS DEMISE!
All hell has broken loose in Toad Town. The koopas have come to invade once again, only this time, they intend to lay waste on everyone and everything they hold dear, leaving behind no survivors. After marking their territory, they then fly away to Peach's Castle to come and kidnap her again, but this time, they intend on ending her for once and for all...
Rising from the ashes of the deceased Toad Town, Mario chases the koopas to the castle to try and stop them, but unfortunately, all is too late when he gets there to hear an airship containing the screams of the princess flying away. Not long after the princess is gone, Mario comes across a tall black tower with a giant star attached to it, in which he learns is named the "Star Keep", a tower which holds the power stars needed to unlock the gateway to the dark world, which is apparently where the princess was taken to be slaughtered. Unfortunately, after the invasion, the power stars ended up being scattered over 16 different worlds outside of the Mushroom Kingdom. Now, Mario must venture fourth across these worlds, on what is the most dangerous, most intense, and possibly very last quest he will ever venture...
Just so you get a taste on what this game has to offer, I've gone and released a demo. In this demo version of the game, we follow Mario's journey through the deserted and darkened lands of the Mushroom Kingdom, from the destruction of Toad Town to Peach's Castle and discovering the Star Keep. Intro level is pretty crap, but I'll improve on that for the full game. I will be starting work on the rest of the game as soon as possible.
Download and play, and let me know what you think of the story so far. The kingdom needs you more than ever.
Beta Testers (three positions remain)
The First World is just about ready to be tested so I need you peeps to help me out.
If you'd be interested to test it out and let me know if it could be improved then let me know either on this thread or via PM. You should then receive a PM within a day or two with the levels you've been assigned to test.
A couple of rules to help make people's lives easier
1. When you get the download link to the levels you will be given a deadline in which you need to PM me back with your critiques by. If you don't send me a critique by the deadline, you will be fired.
Exceptions may be made if you let me know it's not possible to do so by the deadline as long as you give reasons.
2. If I happen to find any of my levels up on YouTube, or if you post a download link somewhere, I will find you, and I will fire you. And if I can't find out who posted it, I will fire all of you.
So if you happen to post something online, be a decent person and own up so no innocent soul gets devoured.
That's about it, let me know if you're interested.
