You can't really just do the Beatles as a sprite hack. At the very least, it needs custom music.

This is such a high concept idea, it's just begging for someone to knock it out or the park.

Yes, I totally agree. like I said, this is not finished.
I really like to nurture this brain child of mine but I'll just have to wait until the launch of the SMB2 music editor by dtothefourth.

So,still now news on the music editor. But now I've managed to get some time to start working on level design. I got to take inspiration from the film.

There's still much to do with the graphics as well. The bosses need to be replaced with characters from Yellow Submarine.

I'll get by... with a little help from my friends.

PM me if you're interested in helping out with this project. I've started a discord and I can send you a link if you wish to help or want to see the process.

Ok, I've learned a whole lot during these weeks!
I'm pretty proud of the sprite editing, I think it's a good representation of The Beatles.


A distant concern at this point, probably, but those should read "Pepper's" and "Colors".  (Possibly "Colours".  But not "Coulours".)
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I can almost hear the narrator's voice and it would be cool to have that introduction but I can only fit so much text and I like it to explain why The Beatles are the Lonely Hearts Club Band all of a sudden.

The vegetables should change into something. Hearts maybe. Or musical instruments? 

I'd love to discuss ideas with anyone who may be interested. Like I said I could use a little help with level design, if any one's interested?

Here's my newly started discord for those who want to help or discuss the hack:
