Welcome to Free Games Friday, posted two days late because I was out of town.
This week I’m only going to be highlighting one game.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Yes, this game is hardly an unknown title. Super Mario Bros. Crossover (which recently released an updated version, featuring difficulty levels and what can only be described as a “metric crapton” of characters) was the brainchild of one Jay Pavlina, ocassional LPer and now full time game developer. You can play the latest version of Super Mario Bros. Crossover on his site, ExplodingRabbit.com (for those of you who are eager to get straight to the game, here’s a direct link to the game).
With that out of the way, I’ve decided that for this week I’m also going to use my designated weekly article to get the word out on a project that is currently in the works, and as you might have guessed, it’s closely tied to this week’s featured game.
The Ladies and Gentlemen of Exploding Rabbit have been working on their own game, a spiritual successor of sorts for Super Mario Bros. Crossover, titled Super Retro Squad. After a modestly successful Kickstarter campaign, the team have been working quite diligently on the game, and from the screen shots and pre-alpha footage, I can personally say that my hopes are pretty high. My main purpose for talking about this is because work on the game is going slower than anticipated, and they have opened up a donation drive in order to help expediate the process of making the game. If you like Super Mario Bros. Crossover, then consider checking out their Super Retro Squad page and if you like what you see, then feel free to drop them a couple dollars if you are so inclined.
That’s all for this (late) edition of Free Games Friday, stay tuned for more!
