The Epic Mario Project Lives On
Dear Supporters and Fans,
Well we didn't hit our goal but I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for your contributions and efforts to get the word out about this project. Over the next couple of months I will be retooling, redesigning, and recommitting to get Epic Mario off the ground. The next phase of development will be to get just the basics put together to complete one full "TV Screen" worth of Super Mario Bros. After that I will be acquiring the bricks needed so that I can complete a run through of the level using just the TV screen worth of imagery at a time. In approaching the project this way, I will only be building about 1/7th of the level at a time and consequently will need fewer parts as I can reuse the certain elements over and over again. As an added bonus structuring the project this way will lend itself to creating a stop motion animation of the first level. The labor involved will be significant but so will the rewards.
Thank you all again for your support. I promise to keep everyone posted as the project moves forward.
