I wonder what could be the final name for the final version of this game?

Many people at Omnimaga knows Project M as Mario, but when project M arrives in ticalc archive, people might miss out because Mario won't be in the title and people search for popular game names first (unfortunately for many other games).

Since the game incorporates some SMW elements but is still not a SMW port, my idea would be Super Mario World 0 or Super Mario World Z80

This raises an interesting point.  I vote for the program to be called "Project M" on calc, but on Ticalc, I think it could be "Super Mario World Z80: Project M".   On a side note, could some confuse "Project M" with Metroid?

My issue is that if we keep the word "Project" in the name, we should try to make sure it won't sound like a work in progress. Most people who see "Project Mario" will say "oh, another unfinished demo? forget it", and not everyone at ticalc visits Omnimaga or even know it exists at all. It's best to make sure the title won't sound like 1: a project demo, 2: another crappy mario clone.

How about "Project M - Not Another Unfinished Demo" :P Jk.

Seriously though I would probably say something like Super Mario: Calc Edition would be cool. I'm not sure though.

Another issue is making it not sound too much like one of those custom levels for Mario 1.2, heh

Yeah true calc84maniac.

I wonder if New Super Mario Bros 8x would work?

I like that one (or maybe just Super Mario Bros 8x, without the "New"). I don't think that sounds like a level.
Or, in the spirit of the version for the 68k calcs, Super Mario z80 (or 8x, I guess)

Maybe call some friends in high places and have it featured?  Problem solved.

Well if it made ticalc front page, it would sure be seen as a full Mario game, now, so that could be a solution, since it would have a green icon. Super Mario z80 seems good, except I think people will confuse it with Sam Heald's Mario, as some people already do with an older Mario game on ticalc.org

The "New" being part of the name could work too since it would be in reference to the Nindendo DS/Wii game of the same name and no calc levels are called that way I think

I can't see this not getting a feature when it's completed anyway as it is such a beast already. :D

true personally I am certain this will get featured even if there's already another Mario classic on ticalc. It usually takes quite a while before features come up on ticalc, now, though (generally a week or two, 3 sometimes)
