VERSION 2.0 OUT NOW! | The Epic Quest by Unknown68D ~ My First SMBX Episode!
Posted: Mon Mar 30, 2020 4:12 pm
I, Unknown68D, am proud to announce that my first-ever, long-awaited SMBX project, The Epic Quest, is FINALLY completed! In this episode, join Mario, Luigi & Toad as you partake in this traditional, yet benevolent epic. Essentially, it's an episode that takes great inspiration off of the NSMB series in terms of world layout and level progression, heavily incorporating elements from many of the classic 2D Mario games you all know & love! It features the classic 8 world themes, as well as a secret 9th world!
In terms of the story, it's about what you expect from many of the mainline Mario titles out there, in which you rescue Princess Peach. However, Bowser has more of a... scientific... motive for kidnapping Peach this time around. You'll meet various friends, learn more about the history of the Mushroom Kingdom & embark on various challenges as you traverse your way into Bowser's Darklands.
With over 100 unique levels, 90 stars to collect, 20 secret exits & a variety of boss fights both nostalgic & innovative, it will certainly be an epic to remember!
I have been a long-time player of SMBX for many years to date, and I've been working on this episode on and off for as long as I can remember. This has been BY FAR my most pressing passion project to date, spanning for almost an entire decade! After rekindling my motivation for Nintendo level creating after 2-3 years of inactivity in between, I set out to finish what I've started. I've been intensively working on completing this project ever since! Now, I am both proud & ecstatic to finally release this project to both the SMBX community & my online community!
I hope that you will all enjoy everything that this episode has to offer! I certainly enjoyed pouring my heart & soul into every last object placed. I wouldn't change this journey for the world, as it ignited a passion for creating & game design within me that I never would have obtained otherwise.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed, whether directly or indirectly, to this project's completion!
