Stella in Adventure World [AKiMW mod]
Post Posted: Fri Dec 11, 2020 2:59 am
Hi everyone!

So... I started this little project last weekend, in order to learn how to use KiddEd.

Have in mind this is a beginner´s first attempt on KiddEd, thus, everything is still very crude. Hopefully I will make progress and finish it someday!

Here is the first “early-pre-alpha-test” demo video displaying level 1 and a tiny bit of level 2. I am currently working on enemies sprites, among other things.

The video was recorded with Kega Fusion.

Enjoy! =)

I really like your Stella sprites. They are impossibly cute and capture the style of AKiMW perfectly.

Hi tsp, your work looks very good. Have you thought about a plot?.

Thanks for the feedback, guys! =)

As for the plot, yes! It will be a prequel to The Lost Stars.

I will try to post updates in a regular basis.

Yesterday I tested it on "real" hardware (Analogue Mega Sg) and so far it runs perfectly.

Cheers! ;)

What a great hack! And for one of Sega's least utilized characters too. Nice to see Stella has her own proper adventure now.

Looking forward to playing this!

Good start!

You should move up the hoverboard of at least 1 pixel 'cause it look like attached to the ground. Like the followed screen.

Very cool ...
I tried to do this hack a few years ago but ended up leaving it behind.

Wait, those new Stella sprites raise a question: Is the red dot in Alex's face supposed to be his mouth? I always assumed it was supposed to be his nose, judging from the bigger picture of Alex from the map screen between levels.

It's a shame that it's discontinued. I like the graphics a lot!

Yes yes ... I just had a serious problem with the master tile program in compression and i still couldn't solve it. Ask some friends for help. There is little left but this bug has hindered the entire hack.

Already answered hahaha.

It's a hack I'm doing to improve the aspects of the modification made by tectoy.

The images have already been placed.

Tec Toy had very limited resources at the time, such as not using Portuguese punctuation and not translating compressed graphics, apart from the legendary Phantasy Star translation in which they used an English translation program that in many ways became meaningless to us as the introductory text. But in any case, they did an extraordinary job considering the situation of our country in the period, then they evolved a little.

Now that you mentioned... maybe it i his nose? Judging from the sprites of Alex falling in the water, I think it is. Anyway, my brain "fixed" that dot as his mouth, and I cannot see it other way! O_o

However in most japanese artwork, Alex appears with a big open mouth, and his nose is quite inconspicuous. So... maybe its his mouth? o__O

Hi folks!

So, here goes a new update on the development of Stella in Adventure World.

Level 2 is basically finished (check the gameplay video); I improved some of the enemies sprites and added more aesthetic and gameplay related enhancements to level 1.

The game plot is also fully delineated, but I will not spoil it too much. Basically, it will be a prequel to TLS, with ties to SW and HTW, and revolves around Alex not coming back home after visiting a certain arcade.

Revo> Thanks for the advice about the hoverboard. I’ve fixed it.

To everyone else> Many thanks for the feedback! I will continue to develop SiAW as I go on learing how to use KiddEd, and will try to post updates on a regular basis.

Cheers ^_^v

Congrats so far!
From a fan from Switzerland, been keeping up with all the various mods and whatnot. This one got me curious, and it looks great already! I just like the way you are playing with the colors.

Keep up the good work.
