Default New Platform To Make Worlds?

I've been thinking, has every idea and concept of world building been squeezed to the limit and now nothing is left of SWC?? DUN DUN DUN!!

I've been thinking of other platforms to build worlds for, what are your choices?

No. There hasn't been a world that is entirely lava, and you must rely on constantly picking up health to survive. There hasn't been a world where you are completely defenseless, have one hit point, and must reach the end of the levels without dying to the enemies.There hasn't been a world where every enemy is invisible. There hasn't been a world set in 18th century Germany where you have to assassinate Bach. There hasn't been a world that randomly generates all of its levels through swap specials

You are right, OurEminent, the only problem which plagues world builders are getting their worlds tested!

Making worlds now is pretty much a hit and run hobby, a person makes a world, gives it Jamul, Jamul puts it in the ATC, and the person leaves Hamumu Software for the course of a year, comes back, and if lucky, gets reviews for his/her world.

That's how I see it nowadays. It's not so focused anymore, but I guess it's a good thing that people aren't so obsessed, but on the other hand, production takes 10 times longer.

Really the way to go nowadays is to self-publish worlds onto the forum. Make getting it released the first priority, then send it to the ATC for a possible official release. Heck, posting it on the forums might gander attention from the ATC if some of them visit, so there's a bonus.

Kinda seems pointless if you don't have at least some moderately good plot.

Mmmm, your negativity is just what the community needs.


I for one think a world about assassinating Bach could be interesting. Sounds like it has all the plot you could want, too.

Why would anyone want to assassinate Bach? What did the guy do wrong, is there something history books are not telling?

There's much potential for such a simple suggestion. You could really go anywhere with it, depending on how outlandish you want to make things, or how creative you are.
