Man, I just sort of forgot about this thread and now I feel awful.
I do not have anything playable yet. =/
I keep hitting walls and having to switch to a simpler starter project. Currently I am halfway through the first level of a candy-themed Mario clone. It seems to be going a bit quicker than other attempts, so I think it will be the first thing I actually finish.
Oh, Brother will have to wait until I know what I'm doing. ><
For the Mario clone, I do have assets to show. Sprites, mainly (working with placeholder backgrounds/tiles until I get the level finished).
An in-game shot. Current title is Sugar and Spice.
Story is; Little bubblegum girl, Princess Sugar, battles her gingerbread sister, Princess Spice for control of Gumdrop Castle and all of Candy Kingdom.
Spice has stolen the crown, banished her sister to the Taffy Pits and now fancies herself ruler of Candy Kingdom.
Sugar must escape her prison, battle through her sisters cookie creeps and take back her throne.
When she banished her, Spice tore much of Sugar apart.
Because of this, Sugar is very small and lacks power. She will need to acquire new gum pieces to grow and regain her strength.

I promise to update when I have something playable. ^.-
