    This does look very interesting! And it's even got it's own music!

    See, this is the kind of project I'd like to compose for. Shame I procrastinate so much, lmao.

    Hi, I'm part of the project; I originally found it in the ICU Gigasoft forums. I'm doing level design and contributed some music as well. I think you could compose some tracks; I'm not great at it myself and have massive schedule slips. You can listen if you like to a beta I had:



    Edit: Also, why is everything in bold?

    Very nice but (and I don't mean to jinx anything) but how has Nintendo not put the hammer to this yet?

    Got the message!

    Nintendo is a heck of a lot more lax about fangames, and it's more original so it's not like that SM64 recreation in Unity that was C&D'd. It also needs to be much more popular to reach 'Project M' level. I am a bit worried that Epic Paper Mario, another fangame by a dev of two previous Mario RPG's, will be C&D'd because it got a lot more popularity on GameJolt, receiving about 150k views so far (crossing over to their other games as well). I'd want that growth only to happen after the game is released so if it does, people can modify it and spread it around faster than Nintendo can take it down.

    You know, I like how it follows the Super Paper Mario format and that it's not turn based. That's what I like more about Super Paper Mario, even though I missed the partners. I just don't have the time or attention span to do turn based rpgs. Unless it's Pokemon, but that's another story.

    This looks pretty awesome and I don't generally follow fangames so I'm excited to see where this goes.

    That is a weird reason to not play RPGs. Besides puzzle games, there is no better game for time or attention span than games where you can pause at about any moment :)

    Well, a lot of older ones I want to play use save points. Like Final Fantasy 7, Paper Mario, and a handful of others. I'm at a point where I need to be ready to leave at any minute so if I'm in the middle of a boss battle or I'm not anywhere near a save point, then I'm kind of screwed lol.

    I'd like to think I can mix between remixes and original content for that. I liked how Seven Sages and Starlite Worlds used remixes (covers in that case), but ideally I'd like as close to a balance as possible for that. I'm glad you actually remix the music instead of changing the instruments and going "Well that's about that!" Currently, I'm at the point where I can make melodies well, but the issue is coming up with many things and they don't fit at all. Looking at other tracks (the ones I listen to, anyway) gave me a lot of detail.

    Heh, I know that feeling. I recommend playing with savestates, but only using it to pick up from a previous playthrough and not to cheat deaths. After all, they are older games.

    I'm good at making melodies too (not THAT good), but I always like to insert some references here and there :D

    That is true. I try to get as close to how 'derivative' the thing I'm making is. Like Freezefrost Mountain has no connections at all, while Toad Town, you bet that's gonna have many. I was surprised that Penton would receive just that as a heavy source material. Even moreso that Benstar had nothing more to say about it.

    If I make a tutorial about the music stuff, I'm not going to dance around like the tutorials I see (I can't read sheet music, the only pitch I can recognize is C, I have no musical education, etc.) If you want me to go into more detail I could.

    I'm also gonna give up on this bold text. Gonna script it out!

    I believe I mentioned it before, but the track is good, but the placing I'm not so sure about. It'd be like, "Oh Rogueport that theme, I know, we'll use the SMB1 Underground as a base remix of that." Actually, I'm not sure about @ReWilfre's experience track with composing, so maybe he'd like to share. :)

    Ok, my experience? Oh, I have Musical Formation and Technology (MFT), Piano and Choir lessons. I only started composing a year ago... :p
