After finishing up Zelda II - Amida's Curse
and Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers
, I started work on my third extensive ROM hack. Today I can reveal my new project:Ember of Mana
Ember of Mana will be a brand new Mana adventure for Gameboy. This Rom hack is based on Final Fantasy Adventure (also known as Mystic Quest or Seiken Densetsu). This will be an extensive ROM hack with a new world, new graphics, new music, new dungeons, new gameplay, new story, custom events and a full colorization.
This hack is still in its very early stages, so planned release is somewhere in 2023. I will use this topic to share progress and new screenshots. Would be great to discuss ideas with you all!

Arathron123 and Xenophile did an amazing job mapping out the ROM. This makes it possible to change a lot of things. Colorization is currently being worked on by Xenophile, MojoDodo, KKzero and Daid. If people are interested in joining them, feel free to let me know!
We are able to extract all music data from the game to a MML format. With some patience it's possible to change the music. I'm very interested to get in contact with people that worked on music hacks before. So if you are that person, let me know!
Feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions on how to improve upon Final Fantasy Adventure!
