The Official 2021 Reboot of Toad Goes to Outer Space, by yours truly

ABOUT

Captain Toad Goes to Outer Space is a SMW-styled episode inspired by episodes like ATWE, Return to Dinosaur Land, Frozen, Super Mario Zeal, and more! Join Captain Toad and the Toad Brigade in their big space adventure as they race to stop Mars from colliding with Planet Earth! More details will follow below after we get a brief history of its older iteration, Toad Goes to Outer Space!

HISTORY
Once upon a time, I worked on Toad Goes to Outer Space since December 2013. It had this old cliche plot of Bowser kidnapping Peach as per usual, but this time he has a space station in addition to using Princess Peach as a life force to power up a laser beam to destroy Planet Earth. Levels followed a Super Mario Star Expedition format, meaning you have to collect a star and return to the hub room to progress further. The hubs were also bugged, meaning you'd have to do the intro all over again after you quit and reopen the episode!

But in 2014, I lost motivation working on it. I left a lot of levels unfinished! When I looked back around SMBX2's time, it definitely didn't live up to the new standards that SMBX2 has set. And especially since this is a legacy SMBX 1.3 project that didn't follow up to new standards with SMBX2 on the horizon, I've decided to completely cancel this first iteration of the project and rework the entire episode into a SMW-styled adventure with SMBX2 content!

The original TGTOS thread can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=485

STORYLINE
After Mario saved Princess Peach from Bowser's wedding on the Moon, peace was restored to Planet Earth once again. Our fellow plumbers and princesses went on a worldwide vacation across several kingdoms, and it's no doubt they've been enjoying the peace that was seemingly restored to them.

Or so do they believe. The Rainbow Exploration Agency has sent out a public service announcement around the world, and it's nothing more than bad news! Turns out they discovered that Planet Mars was pulled off from its orbit and is set on a collision course for Planet Earth! Strange things started happening across Earth, especially in the Mushroom Kingdom, as Mars gets very close to the home planet. As a result of these strange side effects, the Odyssey malfunctioned and is unable to fly our plumber heroes back to the Mushroom Kingdom just in time to stop the apocalypse!

All hope is not lost, though, when our fellow treasure-tracking adventurer, Captain Toad, has stepped forward to save the day! Equipped with Mario's spare jumping boots that Toadette has found for him somewhere, Captain Toad teams up with the Toad Brigade to reach Planet Mars and stop it from colliding with Earth. The journey may be a long and dangerous one for them, especially when a mysterious force gets in the way of their plans and forces the spaceship to crash, scattering all the Grand Stars, its main fuel source, across several nearby planets! It's up to Captain Toad and his fellow Toad Brigade members to find all the Grand Stars, race for Mars, and uncover who's been playing these apocalyptic cards all along!

PLANNED FEATURES
Spoiler: show
- No more Bowser-kidnaps-Peach plot! Save the entire PLANET EARTH from a collision course with Planet Mars!
- Playable Captain Toad! Ready for adventure!
- All-new villains, inspired by The Gold Squad on ABS-CBN. Face them in all-new custom boss battles, alongside other space creatures and minibosses!
- SMW-styled episode, with a modern take on the SMW artstyle that has cues from games like Super Cat Tales, Super Fowlst, and Dadish!
- No more star hubs. Meet a new world map using SMWmap by MrDoubleA!
- Brand new HUD! (Coded by Marioman2007)
- Green Stars! There's one per level. Can you find them all?
- About 28+ levels in base release
- Eight planets, including Earth and some returning planets from the old TGTOS like Planet Spore (Fungiforia) and Mechanical Planet!
- I'm tossing out the NSMB OST... in exchange for a fun, variety-full OST! Featuring music from Super Cat Tales, Kirby, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, SMWCentral originals, Dadish, and more!
- Rise of a CTGTOS Devteam - there's a new devteam that's working part-time on this episode. More details to come!
- I hid a statue somewhere
- Planned accessibility features such as invincibility, powerup deployments, and screen shake reduction.
- And more!

Tubular Tunnel Fun is my Choccy Con entry, and my first leeway back into the SMBX level-making groove! With it being the first time I've learned so much about SMBX2 and the PGE editor, I've decided to include it as part of the level line-up in Captain Toad Goes to Outer Space! The level's Choccy Con counterpart will also get a standalone release as well in the Levels subforum, with some fixes that'll be prepared for its CTGTOS counterpart as well.

The screenshots look very good, I like the dark ambience of that level (it looks like all of the pictures are from the same level, am I correct?), and that storyline is very nice and different from the rest. Also, there's a part of it which is kind of similar to my old project's plot, Rosalina's Satellite! Best of luck with this.

I appreciate the feedback! Also, both Tubular Tunnel Fun and that Elite Koopa level are actually separate levels. More to come!

The episode looks really promising! The sizeable in the third screenshot doesn't fit in with the rest of the graphics, though.

Please don't use extended music tracks.
