I don't think this is really necessary, but it's like they say, better safe than sorry.
This game project pokes fun at tSR members and tSR as a whole. The jokes included here don't mean to offend anyone. Don't take this seriously, and get along with the fun. If you don't like the way you're being represented in this game, PM me so I can remove it.

This game's purpose is not to reinvent the platformer genre. Its sole intention is to poke fun at famous games and tSR, while adding elements of our own. Thus, even if this game is being produced mainly by me and Ploaj, feel free to give suggestions and sprite/music help. DON'T FORGET NOT TO BITE OFF MORE THAN YOU CAN CHEW, THOUGH. This was all tSR projects' weak point until now, so don't go suggesting over-the-top stuff.
The fun of the game does not come from the gameplay alone; small details and witty designs can make this game even more enjoyable.

Backstory (Click to View)
This joke project's story is really weird and complex, so I'll do my best at explaining it.
All the elements in this project was planned in a chat with tSR people I frequent, and they were all originated because of random jokes that... were taken seriously by me.
First of all, I need to explain the 'genderbent' version of Gilbert. I designed her after people saying that I 'wasn't anime enough to watch anime' with them. I promptly responded with a sketch of gilbert with twintails, which caused some hilarious reaction and ended up becoming a running gag of the chat.
The genderbent Gilbert didn't have a fixed name, so people referred her as 'Girls', 'Girlsal', 'Girlbert' and other stuff. I thought that those names were dumb, so I settled up with 'Arisa' as her name. (Being an anime girl version of Gilbert, nothing more appropriate than naming her after a series of Japanese rifles and ammo cartridges, Arisaka). I also placed her definitely in the Bullethead cast as Gilbert's manga-loving, 'tsundere' sister.
This new name spawned some Touhou jokes (Arisa being just one letter far from Marisa). Sploder even went as far as drawing her and the whole chat's reference characters with Touhou clothes. This served as the base to make Super Arisa Land, a parody of the Touhou fangame Super Marisa Land.
At the same time, Sengir has told us a very... peculiar dream I'll spare you the details from, and that caused more jokes to surface. Then, we noticed that Sengir wasn't 'moe' enough for the chat, so with the members' help, I created Sengi~, the girl version of Sengirbug. Naturally, she got paired with Arisa and eventually, this joke project was born.
Super Arisa World is a parody game starring Arisa and Sengi~. As the name suggests, it heavily references Super Mario World, though it also takes inspiration from other games too.
Everyone lived in peace in the land of tSR. Unfortunately, for this game to happen, something terrible had to occur, so Vipershark decided to kidnap all the girls in tSR.
For an even more unexpainable reason, Crappy Blue Luigi is the only one who knows about this tragedy, and promptly asks Gors and Sengir, the local heroes, for help.
Unfortunately, a game starring both Gors and Sengir would be so radular, the player would never die, and they knew it. So they came up with stupid excuses, such as "working in TFR" or "coding this important stuff". Crappy Blue Luigi then shrugs, and wonders who could bring back peace in the spriter's land.
He then hears some happy chatter. It was Arisa and Sengi~, taking a walk without knowing they were in danger.
"Arisa! Help us! Vipershark has kidnapped all the imoutos in tSR! Please save them from being transformed into dakimakuras..." - Crappy Blue Luigi
I have no idea why he didn't mention Sengi~ in that line, but nevertheless, both girls decided to kick Vipershark's butt and save the captive girls from his clutches...
The game has 4 levels, and every level has three 'floors', except the last level (which is Viper's castle). The floors are as follows:
1-middle (MID): Every level starts here. It has a basic platformer layout, and can branch into TOP and BOT.
2-top (TOP): One of MID's branches. It can be accessed by entering an upwards pipe, climbing vines, platforms etc. As Mario's athletic levels, there are a lot of floating platforms and falling off them is a constant threat.
3-bottom (BOT): Another MID's branches. It can be accessed by entering a downwards pipe. It is the underground layout, with rocky surfaces, stalactites and lava.
Levelling system works this way:
1-Since this game has different stats for each character, it'd be better if the players could swap them before any level.
2-They have separate HUDs, except for:
5-Powerups work as follows:
1-You can't leave your partner off screen; the sides of the screen will act as walls.
2-Entering a pipe will make an icon with your face appear, pointing on the pipe. The camera will stop scrolling, either forcing the second player to enter the same pipe or the first player come out from the pipe.
Other Game Ideas:
2-The lying down sprite is when you lose a life. I thought it would be better than simply falling off screen, like Mario does.
3-You can't kill PK.
4-Popcorn is a 'stealth' enemy:

You can find the game's soundtrack by checking my YT channel, under 'Super Arisa World' playlist. It is updated somewhat regularly, and the new tracks are also shown in this thread.
Ploaj and Gors' idea talk 1 (Click to View)
1. That pose of Gatsby facing back, what is it? I assumed it was like when you try to jump on his head, he like sometimes he dodges or something. idk
2. Is the laying down pose like the dead pose when you run out of lives or like after a big hit or something.
3. Should falling down a whole take one life or just kill you.
4. Same for lava, does it just kill you or do you lose a life
5. What do these blocks do?: The block with the cross, The Thumbs up, and the one with flashing lights.
1. That is not an actual animation, it's just a beta sprite. You can disregard it completely.
2. That's when you lose a life. GAME OVER portrait will be different.
3. It'll kill you.
4. Same as 3.
5.The green cross is the Rep block:
There are 5 in every level, and hitting it will give you a rep point. Finding all 5 will give you a life (imagine SMW's Yoshi Coins)
It can also be activated when hit on the side with koopa shells, minecraft blocks, etc.
Thumbs up is the Thank block:
It acts like a ON/OFF switch. Can be used to toggle platforms.
I assume you're talking about the Gradius Red Capsule:
That's a powerup that will give the girls shoot-em-up abilities.

Here are the sprites I've been working on. I am doing then for fun, but I've already written some of the gameplay in my projects notebook.
the sprite style tries to barely mimic New Super Marisa Land, but nothing is very rigid. The blocks and sprites are made in multiples of 24 pixels. I am mostly thinking SMW for gameplay but only 4 different stages.
Huge thanks to Sploder since he made this 'project's first sprite, in the top left corner of the main sheet.
as usual, C+C and stuff
adding two more animations before going to bed

this is fucking hilarious
couple of issues, though: I see that you've addressed the main issue with Girlsal's legs (in that she was leaning too far forward because of their original placement), but the positioning still looks a bit unstable. I'd tweak it a bit more (maybe shift the right leg [our left] over another pixel). Second, the hair's just acting crazy in the run animation; what's the ref you're using for it? If you need one, I'd recommend looking at how Shanoa's hair flows in her animations for Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, or you could even mimic Miku's running animation from a pretty recently submitted sheet (this one has the added bonus of showing the double-pigtails that you have going for Girlsal)
Also, I know you're constrained for room and all that in the falling animation, but I would try to do something to compensate for the hair. It's not natural for it to shrink like that :F
And also also, when jumping, the hair probably shouldn't curl around like that. It should naturally be straight when it's being tugged into the air like that.

this was a secret!!!
omg now they'll know....

I see what you meant with the legs, I'll try tweaking it later. As for the hair, I didn't use any references and relied on memory instead. I couldn't be arsed to look up a proper ref for a joke sprite, so I just winged that quickly.
I'm afraid that the falling will need to be like that due to sprite size (I wanted to make it longer too), but I can definitely tweak the hair in the jump.
Thanks for the C+C!

Oh look, random maid. This is by far great, though Sengi's horn should be a bit brighter since it's facing the lightsource and poking out of the hair. Vipoomba is hilarious though, the nosebleed was a 'fitting' way to go. Who's Bowser's equal? Dazz?
RE: SUPER ARISA WORLD - Dream Fortress - 04-19-2012 01:57 AM
I'm guessing Starsock
RE: SUPER ARISA WORLD - Sengir - 04-19-2012 01:59 AM
It's Sengi~, not Sengi
If you're gonna genderbend my character do it right >:I
(also i agree with the crit, the horn(?) lighting is weird)
RE: SUPER ARISA WORLD - Gorsalami - 04-19-2012 02:23 AM
also it isn't horn, it is a conveniently placed ahoge
RE: SUPER ARISA WORLD - Vipershark - 04-19-2012 06:22 AM
Bowser is my konaghast
I think starsock is the invincibility powerup
