Super Mario Bros. Crossover is an amazing game that allows you to play through the original Super Mario Bros. with one of several NES heroes, such as Mega Man, Simon Belmont, Samus, Ryu Hayabusa, and others. As fun as it is, its nature doesn't leave developer Exploding Rabbit many options for making money.
To that end, Exploding Rabbit is working on an original title called Super Retro Squad, using the knowledge gleaned from Super Mario Bros. Crossover. In a way, Super Retro Squad will be sort of like a re-skinned version of Super Mario Bros. Crossover, featuring characters directly inspired by their NES counterparts. It's not a straight-up copy, though, as the characters will have additional abilities that can be upgraded, music and art will be wholly original, and so on.
To ensure that Super Retro Squad is a success, Exploding Rabbit is asking fans to donate to a Kickstarter fund. With just shy of a month left, the team is already nearly halfway to its $10,000 goal. The game will appear on PC, Mac, and Linux machines, with the possibility of expansion to Apple and Android devices down the road.
We already know these guys can make a solid game, so there's no harm in giving 'em a leg up for what's sure to be another fun piece of software.

Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too. OverlordZetta Huh.

Hype!Avoclefo Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?Niero Desu Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.OrochiLeona Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?Nathan D After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now. Pixie The Fairy When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.Confuseddalek I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.Solar Pony Django Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.
