I have been absent from the "scene" of rom hacking (do we even still call it the scene anymore?) for many years now. Recently, I played through FF1 again and it sort of rekindled my interest. My reason for creating this is just to ask a simple question:
How much interest is there in a FF1 rom hack?
I've written up a story, two tilesets for maps, and 3 maps (including the world) map for a Mario-themed FF1 hack. A lot of planning went in to what I have so far, and it has been kind of fun to do up to this point. With a full time job and school and a very hot wife all in my life right now, my time to work on the project is somewhat limited. But I still have interest in continuing the project, if there is interest in the project from the would-be players.
All you kids seem to be interested in somewhat newer games that weren't really hackable back in my day. That's the reason why I ask. I want to make sure that if I put this much time into something, at least a few people will enjoy it.
