Super Mario Bros. Crossover Developer Commentary #1 – Intro and Simon

Jay releases his first developer commentary for Super Mario Bros Crossover.

I recorded a short video commentary about Super Mario Bros Crossover. I give a small introduction and talk about Simon for a bit. I’ll probably do one for each character, and then I’ll do whatever you guys want. So please check out the video and let me know what you want me to do in the future by posting on the Exploding Rabbit Facebook Page (in the “Discussions” tab). Or you can just post wherever and I’ll probably see it. I hope you like the video!

  1. no the best song is overthere shrine Jay but yea that songs but you should add overthere shrine from super paper mario

  2. Now that I’ve seen all 3 video installments and heard that you went to filmmaking school, wouldn’t it be funny if you made a video in the same vein as bonus DVD dev interviews? Like in the Apple videos when they have the white background, the developer talks to an offscreen interviewer, and it cuts back and forth with other content, plus fancy titles for who those guys are!

  3. I honestly do not care what-so-ever about you “nostalgic ranting,” I’m doing the same to myself every time that I press the start button on Newgrounds. The fact that you took the time of your day to think “Hmm… What if instead of fighting, racing, playing tennis, and various other things that have absolutely nothing to do with platforming to the point of frustration all of the time, Mario and his friends worked together to stomp of Goombas and save Princess Peach, all in the same world?” The only thing extra that I could possibly have the audacity to think of asking you to do for me right now is to ask you to create a developer’s account on a website called “” and publish your game on that website because, for some reason, it keeps popping up on the site, but it’s as if people are taking all of the credit for your creation and/or Greg, the site’s owner, is not informed of the fact that you stated that anybody can publish that game on almost whatever website that they wanted, as long as they made sure that you were properly credited. Could you please at least take that into consideration?

    1. I posted the game on Kongregate around the time I released it. Nintendo requested to have it taken off, and so it was removed. For that reason, I don’t want people to post the game on Kongregate.

  4. Great work man, very creative way to infuse old favorites with new energy. HAL did something like this in Smash Bros Melee (“adventure mode”) but I like how you kept things as true as possible to the originals, and the character-specific BGMs were a very nice touch.

    Hope to see more from you in the future!


  5. Do you have any license issues during making this game?
    I’m afraid what will happen if Nintendo knows…

  6. Only an insane person can complete a project of this magnitude alone, and you are one of them. This is a great incentive for me to continue my work now. Thanks Jay!
