An open source, smash style fighting game, it could use mascots from foss projects (just like SuperTuxKart do).

Since there are some SSB knockoffs being released (All-Star, MultiVersus), why not make one that is actually good? I think it would be pretty cool :)


Although not FOSS, I think you might be interested to know that there is also a serious up-and-coming platform fighter, Fraymakers, starring indie characters from the likes of Octodad and Bit.Trip Runner. Same-ish team behind Super Smash Flash 2.

It’d be interesting to see something that would be similar to it, but with FOSS mascots and especially with regards to “FrayTools”, which is a way to customize the game’s everything. Think like MUGEN ig? The main attraction would obv be that the theoretical FOSS platform fighter would be FOSS, so it would have a longer lifespan, customization that could spawn “tournament-friendly” or “story-mode” builds and not have to suffer a similar fate to PSASBR or Nick All Star.

Also with great customizability and freedom comes with great meme potential :).

Oh yes please do! A lot of people would like to contribute i believe :)

Also worth noting: that’s typically the kind of games where subtle physics settings change the gameplay a lot. It’s worth working on a customizable engine as a library (where you can set settings and import characters/maps) rather than a specific gameplay people may enjoy or not.


Yeah, make Tux brawl with… those annoying assistant mascots Win XP used to have (like that talking paperclip, if anyone remembers)



Really cool idea!

It happens to us all to have good ideas but unfortunately we don’t always have the time or the ability to realize them…

Instead of these ideas getting lost or dying we can share them and maybe they will be heard by someone in the free software community who is in need of inspiration but has the time and ability to realize them. 🤞

You can also share your idea and ask if people in the community are interested in helping you make it happen.
