For most of 2020, I've been working on a Mario Maker clone built with the Godot engine. Today is the day I give away what I've built and beg for coins :)

Originally, I had plans to make this a commercial project but I kind of got obsessed with other things along the way (including updating, maintaining and releasing Godot Dragonbones) and have decided to move in another direction.

Namely, I am going to return to VR development in a big way – but I'll talk about that later.

Anyways, for now I present to you the Mario Maker clone that I've been working on. It's offered as an MIT licensed project that can be used as a learning tool for other developers.

Additionally, if you'd like to add features, new/better art, etc, feel free to contribute. I won't disappear completely :)

All donations go towards equipment, server costs and future development. If enough interest is shown, I'll likely follow this article (and accompanying video) with some more in-depth discussions on the various systems in the project.
