First off thanks to everyone who voted for my little Bob-omb in the last sprite comp! And thanks to SP for letting us over at Minus World know about the competition so I could enter it in the first place. I think between our two forums we can really Make Comps Great Again.

For this competition, I will ask you to stretch the bounds of your creativity in order to create something truly unique.

Imagine for a moment: what if Mario and Luigi never found the secret warp zone while workin' on the drain? In other words, what if they never came to the Mushroom Kingdom, and just remained disgruntled plumbers for the remainder of their lives? No Princess Peach, no Bowser, no magical power-ups or abilities - just two brothers running a (likely failing) plumbing service in New York. In such a sad reality, what would the Mario Bros look like today?

That's your job to figure out, and to depict in the form of a sprite sheet or pixel art! The following rules apply:

  • You can sprite Mario, Luigi, and/or any supplementary characters you choose to invent - but no characters from the Mushroom Kingdom. Remember, in this reality, Mario and Luigi never left Brooklyn, so they would never have met any wacky characters.
  • We're looking for examples of action here - don't just sprite a grumpy-looking Mario. Show at least one example of something "regular plumber" Mario would do, ideally through animation, but non-animated poses will work too.
  • No power-ups, magic blocks, super jumping, or any other wizardry. Welcome to the real world, kiddo. However, feel free to repurpose plumbing supplies and other ordinary objects as "power-up parodies", as long as no magic is involved.

That's about it! If my calculations are correct you have until Wednesday, August 2nd at 11:59pm to submit your entries. Hope this will be a fun one.

Speaking of supplementary characters; here's a question: Would we be able to create anything from Mario Bros. or the three Donkey Kong games that came before Super Mario Bros? (Pauline, Stanley, the original Donkey Kong, etc?) Albeit in a more typical/realistic fashion like DK just being a regular gorilla.

Nice seeing a new comp up so soon. Love the theme, though I see we're operating under the dreaded new sprite rules. I suppose that means I'll just have to... *gasp* challenge myself!

Yeah this would be fine as far as I'm concerned.

Pixel art should still be fine, I'd just like to see non-Super Mario actually doing something instead of simply existing. If you can show that without animation and/or multiple poses, I'm not aware of any rule that would stop you :thumbsup:

Oh, okay. I was thrown off by the "depict in the form of a sprite sheet" bit. Am I interpreting that wrong?

Nice to see competitions active again. Sounds like a fun concept. I may or may not be able to enter this one though probably not.

Here's my WIP in case I don't have time to do more.

It looks like we'll have to extend this one anyway until we get 5 entries

...Yes they are.

They just can't pick the next theme if they win again.

Yes, I believe the runner-up picks in that case.

A better question, am I allowed to pardon myself? Asking for a friend

I didn't get to join the last sprite comp, but when I saw the theme of this one I knew couldn't miss it.
Spoiler:

I just hope this will be accepted since I didn't really animate it, but if not oh well it was at least fun to make it.
Also this is sort of a wip because there is still stuff I should fix like Luigi's height.

EDIT: THIS ONE IS BASICALLY THE COMPLETE VERSION, and the version I want to be used for the voting phase.
Spoiler:

Sorry for the caps, but I just wanted to draw attention to it, so the right one gets submitted. Plus I am keeping the old on just so I can at least have it somewhere I mean who knows I could need it some day.

Wow, two weeks already! Since we have 5 entries now, I'm pretty sure that means the comp doesn't get extended, which means anyone who's been thinking about entering will have all of today and tomorrow to get their entries in. I guess we just skip the top 5 voting since we have exactly 5 entries, assuming nobody else sneaks in.
