Super Mario Bros. Online is a top-down Online RPG fangame based around the Mario universe. Play as Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, or Toad and fight enemies, collect items, play minigames with other players, and more!
This game was my first big step into game development, and I worked on it for over four years with my brother, Alex, in an engine called Eclipse Evolution 2.7, which was written in Visual Basic 6. We officially ended development in June 2012. I designed over 300+ maps in the game, created NPCs, Items, and Equipment, and interacted with players and held in-game events.

All map screenshots below were taken with a custom map viewer I wrote in C# and MonoGame. It’s not normally possible to see the entirety of a map at once in-game due to the window size set by the engine.
A one-map village in the island area of the game, called Koopa Islands. The shell statue in the middle is a custom recolor I made of a gold shell asset from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.
One map in the middle of a large area in the game.
A secret area in the Beanbean Kingdom region of the game.

An ability cave. The players use all of their current abilities to get through this.
A devilish portion of an area called the Poison Cave, an area players lose 1 health per second as long as they’re in the cave (outside of battles). You have to quickly run underneath the brown blocks to remove walls so you can move onwards.
