(Demo 2 is out!) Super Mario & the Star Prisms

Welcome everybody, to the official thread of my SMBX project: Super Mario & the Star Prisms! One of my main inspirations while making concepts of this project is a fangame called Power Star Frenzy and also inspired from 3D Mario games as well! Now without further ado, let's begin to talk about the project:

GENERAL INFO:

- Super Mario & the Star Prisms is an ambitious project made in SMBX 2.0 which is basically the remake of Super Mario & 7 Grand Stars, one of my first projects that was never finished, but ingame concepts will be used regardless. This episode will have levels which are based around exploration and backtracking rather than going forward and finish the level, as collecting Power Stars will unlock future worlds and the final world, which will require about 60% of the power stars in the entire project. (For the post-game areas, you will need more)

- This project will contain 9 worlds that will contain more than 10 levels each, which might exceed the amount of levels up to near 100. But of course, this project will not be a solo project; I will be looking for some level designers, beta testers, spriters for certain stuff I might need it done and of course, a logo designer!

- But the game will not end at defeating the final boss! There are going to be post-game content, like stages that are scrapped from the story but will return as individual stages, a boss rush and even 100 Pit of Trials-styled level planned! (Of course at the end of each demo, there will be some teasers of future levels which will only contain 1 star each, as they will be WIP)

STORY:

Mushroom World is in great danger again! Bowser had teamed up with a mysterious hooded person, and they have destroyed stellar altars which were the homes of Star Prisms, that were also snatched and guarded by Bowser's elite minions! Their goal is to break the seal of Prismatic Gate, which is a barrier in between the reality and a realm of discord and chaos. If opened, not only the Mushroom World but the entire universe will be shrouded in chaos and anarchy! It is up to our heroic brothers, along with their allies to stop Bowser and his ally to use the stars for their own good!

While going through Viridian Grasslands, Mario meets a spirit whom he named it Signote, once a sage but killed by the main antagonist, and became one with sign posts before death. He will be giving tips and help to Mario and his friends during this journey! Even during this journey, you will learn more about Star Prisms and their creators, once a fallen kingdom slowly rising. (This kingdom will be more important in the sequel)

PLAYABLE CHARACTERS:

There are going to be 3-4 playable characters which will be added as game progresses as well:

- Mario
- Luigi
- Wario/Waluigi (Likely to be added in a later demo/update, but will be added)
- Toad (Not sure yet)

WORLDS: (+Progress Chart)

This project will feature a worldmap, which you can unlock levels as you progress! However, to access other worlds, you need a certain amount of stars! Some levels have secret exits which lead to secret levels that also have stars! Here is the planned world list: (Also there is a progress chart of the project, you can take a look at it and claim unclaimed levels and ask questions about certain planned stuff as well)
Spoiler: show
World 1: Viridian Grasslands (Grass-themed World, has 3 subsections) (Current Progress: 13/13)
World 2: Dryrock Dunes (Desert-themed World) (Current Progress: 1/12)
World 3: Tropical Beach Island (Beach/Underwater-themed World) (Current Progress: 1/11)

World 5: Sylvan Woods (Forest/Jungle-themed World) (Current Progress: 0/12)
World 6: Ghastly Graveyard (Graveyard-themed World) (Current Progress: 2/11)
World 7: Volcanic Lavalands (Lava-themed World) (Current Progress: 0/13)
World 8: Restless Metropolis (City/Techno-themed World) (Current Progress: 0/13)
World 9: The Prism Trials (Mixed, one level per theme) (Current Progress: 0/9)

TOTAL LEVEL COMPLETION: 19/106 (Total amount of levels can change depending on activity)

Edit to the recent post: (News about the project)

Since there weren't much votes were done, I have decided to release the first demo after I finish my own levels for World 1. (Which will contain 9 levels and a worldmap hopefully)

Also, still looking for team members for extra help! Either PM me through the forums or join the project's Discord server to get whichever role you want. I'll be waiting! :D

UPDATE NEWS: (19/11/2020)

Adjusted the forum page by changing screenshots and images to Discord attachments! Now it should look more lively and much better! From now on, I will showcase 5 levels from each World and 10 screenshots from other areas!

Also, a small patch to Demo 2 is in progress, some levels got minor changes and all music ingame are now .ogg instead of .mp3 files. A new cutscene level will be added as well, featuring the main antagonists in action!

UPDATE NEWS: (28/11/2020)

The development on Demo 3 will begin in 5 days! So, there's an announcement about urgent jobs!

There's an urgent need of coders and spriters right now. Because we will have a bunch of custom bosses who need function with codes and sadly, I'm not that adept at coding! :( So, if you can code/sprite well and if you are not busy with a contest, a project or real life business, contact me in Discord so I'll add you in.

Also, one of our level designers is inactive for a long time. So, if you can design non-linear levels pretty well, (Themed around exploration and backtracking) contact me on Discord. This applies for beta-testing, we need one more beta tester as more testing means more progress and feedback.

Thanks for your attention, and see you when development for Demo 3 begins!

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.
