Mario Forever Remake (previously known as Mario Forever REMAKE, often abbreviated as MFR, initially called New Mario Forever), as the name may suggest, is a complete remake of the game Mario Forever, developed by TheMarioVariable and the Forever Team (formerly Mario Forever Remake Group Team). This, like the original, is a PC fan game based on one of the most popular Nintendo games, Super Mario Bros. The game has been developed by using a heavily fixed version of a file found in the folder of a really old version of Mario Worker. This remake is intended to be an unofficial update of Mario Forever 4.4, which is the latest that uses the same layout as Mario Forever Remake. The game is made with Clickteam Fusion 2.5 (Multimedia Fusion 2.0 Developer until MFR v2.3)

Development

Development for Mario Forever Remake started in Autumn 2013, when TMV decided to make a proof of concept of Mario Forever World 1 levels, as well as the same Main Menu, Save Game Room and introduction, just like Mario Forever v2.16. Then, he decided to release this game privately to his closest friends as "New Mario Forever" v0.1. Syzxchulun, one of the people who got this demo, liked the idea, and asked to TheMarioVariable to expand this demo and fully incorporate it in a full game. The two then started remaking remaining levels, with some other Syzxchulun's friends contributing in level editing and beta testing.

Once 2014 has arrived, first version of the game was finished. Syzxchulun decided to release the game, now called "Mario Forever REMAKE", in two different iterations for each continent they are; TMV in Europe as PAL version, and Syzxchulun in China. Syzxchulun released the game for the first time on January 30, 2014 in China. In Europe, instead, for celebrating the tenth anniversary of Mario Forever v2.16 release, TMV chose to release it on February 4, 2014. Since then, the game had a lot of attention from fans' side, and with time incoming, it had more updates, and people wanted to help TMV with such project since v2.0.

Since v3.0, Mario Forever Remake has totally been recreated from scratch by TMV and Crist1919 with a better polished engine made by the former, which makes the game more playable and fixes many bugs and lags that were found in older versions of MFR. Credits for people who remade first the worlds and the levels remain the same, however.

Since v4.0, TMV applied a lot of drastic changes to the game and the team itself, now being completely apart from the Chinese iteration.
