Yes, you read that correctly. The widely anticipated project returns - with a twist! It's a community project.
*jazz music stops*
Yeah. Since last time worked out so well, we're taking a different approach this time.
Below, you can claim levels from the original SMB1 and give them your personal make-over in SMBX. The only rule really is that it needs to at least somewhat resemble the original. Other than that, go wild.
For the castle levels, it'd be cool if we could get some people who are talented with lua to make some sick ass custom bosses. If it'll be custom Bowser battles or maybe the Koopalings or the like, we'll discuss in a group.
I will provide rough themes for the worlds that it would be nice if you guys could stick to. They're not mandatory but if all levels from one world had a vague common aesthetic, that would be cool.
When you're done, submit the level to a staff member for a review and I'll get back to you on if it's fit for the episode and if not, we'll work on it together to make it fit.
I will give a timeframe of a month for you to provide me with a proof of concept or a rough draft for your level. If you can't provide that within a month, your claim from the level will be removed. Multiple claims are also not going to be allowed for now, we want as many different people as possible to participate in this.
Claims not posted in this thread will not be accepted.

Of course you need to believe in things that aren't real. How else can they become?
