It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had a challenge on the blog. Kris and I have decided to do another challenge for the rest of the summer. Now that Super Mario Maker 2 is out and there are a boat-load of courses, we figured we’d challenge each other to a few – including some homemade courses of our own.
As creative as we are, I feel like Rachel and I tend to play others’ courses more so than make our own. I remember creating just a couple with the original Super Mario Maker game, having never really taken the time to fully explore all of the options the tools gave us. Super Mario Maker 2 has a lot more to offer, so I’m eager to really play around with it. Rachel, you can decide how many courses we should make for each other — two or three should be good, in my opinion — but I believe part of the challenge should include creating each course in a different game style.
I think we should make three each for each other. Creating the levels in a different game style won’t be a bad idea either. Also, we should totally have one auto side-scroller, one-speed run, and one general level. Or at least choose a variety and not have three general levels, you know?
I’m all for variety, although I’m not sure about my abilities to create a speed-run, haha! Maybe a good puzzle, though, or one with lots of twists… We shall see what I come up with. Going along with a variety of levels, perhaps we should try to give them different terrains, like having a level up in the air, one underwater, a dungeon, the plains… Try not to repeat anything.
That’s fair. I’m not too confident in my skills either. A puzzle would be good if we can think of it, for sure. Having different terrains is also a good idea. Not repeating anything is sort of what I meant with my last statement, you just worded it so much better! We’ll try to make these courses as unique as possible.
