A cool bit of news from the Japanese Nintendo Direct: In 2020, Nintendo will release Switch remakes of its Famicom Detective Club adventure games, originally released on the Famicom Disk System in the late 1980s. No English version planned yet, but who knows what’ll happen.

I did another Mario Maker. I wanted to try to do something non-linear this time. I was almost done making it when, while playing around with the parts in the editor, I hit on the idea to use it to pay homage to my favorite YouTube video ever. I really want to make a short level now. Maybe I should enter our contest.

My latest Super Mario Maker 2 level took me quite a while to complete. I might actually use this as an example to write a piece about what happens when you way overscope a project. I did a lot of trimming. As always, let me know what you think! [Update: Deleted and reposted the level with some fixes.]
