Super Mario Bros. Crossover to become Super Retro Squad

Posted on June 24, 2012 - 9:40am by Ryan Conway

The Exploding Rabbit developers want to make their incredibly fun flash game Super Mario Bros. Crossover a more profitable venture, so they can you know, make a living and survive and stuff. But there’s one big glaring issue preventing it from happening, it’s the fact that all of the characters, levels, and music are all copyrighted material.

However, the team has come up with a rather simple solution, or at least a solution that sounds simple enough. Exploding Rabbit is planning to give the game a complete make over, with original characters (which will be parodies of the famous characters used in SMBC), levels, and music, with the core gameplay remaining the same.

Creating the characters, levels, and composing the music for the newly dubbed Super Retro Squad will cost a fair bit of money, which is why the development team has opened a Kickstarter page and is asking for donations. The goal is to raise $10,000 in order to bring the game to PCs, Macs, Linux compatible computers, iOS, and Android.

The campaign has managed to raise over $6,500 thus far, with 25 days left to go.

If you’re a fan of Super Mario Bros. Crossover, be sure to check out the Kickstarter page to learn more about this original endeavour and maybe chip in a few bucks to help make it a reality.  

Here’s the pitch video, in case you needed some additional persuading:
