Projects: ROM hacks

In a nutshell, ROM hacking is modifying a game's data. It's an easy way to make your own game, using an existing one as a base.

The game I used to hack is Super Mario World for the SNES (or rather, emulators thereof). With a powerful level editor and tons of custom resources, it's among the easiest games to hack. Super Mario World hacking was easily my main hobby for over ten years. I'm a long-time member of SMW Central, the largest Super Mario World hacking community, and I made a couple of games ("hacks") in the past.
