NEWEST VERSION: 0.4.4
This is supposed to be the last release of Version 0.4, if no fatal bugs reported, I will continue to develop on Version 0.5.
Mario Forever: An Unprecedented Expedition (abbr MF: AUE or sometimes MFUE) is a fan game of Super Mario and Mario Forever.
Princess Peach was disappeared one day, and Mario thought it was done by Bowser, so he started the expedition to defeat Bowser...
This game was developed on Clickteam Fusion 2.5+ with Rainbow Engine by lyh. The current version (0.4.0) contains first 4 worlds with over 40 levels.
Development of the game starts from 2015, and due to some personal reasons, it was suspended for years, and now I finally came up with this half-finished version. Thank you all who cares about the project and waited for years, now it's time for enjoy!

Q: So what's the meaning of the game title?
A: Well, the title is related to the story of the game. "Expedition" refers to the story of traveling to different islands. "Unprecedented" may not be reflected in current version, as the storyboard of first 4 worlds is just simply "traveling to next island". But from World 5 on, this will be different and... well I'd better keep it secret :P
Q: Why does the development of this game takes this long?
A: Mainly personal reasons. As a matter of fact, things do not always go on well for me, mainly in my personal life. Because of that, the project stopped for a long time. However due to the epidemic this year, many things have been stopped and I have a lot of spare time to work on it. This year does not go well, but for me the extra time is something to comfort me a little bit. And thanks to many technologies and methods discovered by other people working on MF fangame, many formal headaches are solved. So, I can release this version now.
Q: What's the relationship between this game and WSW Worlds?
A: I saw someone regard this game as a remake version of WSW Worlds. Well not that precisely... WSW Worlds is one of the games I made and due to some reason, I decided to stop working on them. Many levels of this game are adapted or mixed from levels of WSW Worlds and my other levels and I tried to make them more playable, but this is more of a tribute, I guess. The whole structure of this game is different, and inspired mainly from official Super Mario games like SMB3.
Q: What will be the next major version?
A: Version 0.5. There will be some online features like scoreboard. And possibly, some new levels will be added.
