    Fun Fact: During DDLC's second act there's a random chance for the trigger warning that you see when you boot up the game to change into one of several weird quotes, one of which is "PM died for this." This is in reference to Project M, which may or may not have been C&D'd by Nintendo(it was)not long before DDLC's existence.

      @Local Head Dealer Project Melee was a mod for Smash Bros Brawl that mostly fixed general complaints about the game, usually ones from the competitive scene, as well as adding new characters, new alternate costumes, new stages and, new mechanics !

    Yeah, it's one of the reasons why Dan opened up DDLC for modding, as he wanted to give others a chance to cut their teeth on game modding as a path to game development too.

    When I was installing that mod on dolphin I couldnโ€™t believe my eyes when it said Dan Salvato next to it. I thought it surely couldnโ€™t be the same Dan Salvato and I looked it up and it really was. Wow

    Actually, Monika has a topic (one of the things she talks about near the end of the game in the room where only you and her are) about Super Smash Bros. She doesnโ€™t say it as of now, but Iโ€™m pretty sure you can see it by looking at the games script.
