I'm in an art appreciation course, and our final project is to recreate a piece of art in another medium. Oddly, as soon as it was announced, I thought of Rene Magritte's "Treachery of Images" (the painting of a pipe with the words "This is not a pipe" in French under the pipe) and Mario. Originally, I wanted a wild, psychedelic video to play when Mario entered the pipe, but I opted for the Negative world with some eerie text like in the finished project.
The original "Treachery of Images" seemed to lack TREACHERY to me, so I made the cyclops-demon-antagonist to add some mischief. I also thought it would be interesting not only to play with the "This is not a pipe", but more so playing on what players expect. This is why I tried to copy the original level set up as close as possible.
This is my first completed Flixel project, I have another larger one that has been in the works for a couple of months, but I'm relatively new at Flash and Flixel. It's a lot more intuitive than I thought it would be - I've never been very good at coding.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
[EDIT] I accidentally uploaded a version of the game with the super secret bonus as the default scene! The cats out of the bag! Sorry for the mistake!
