The Supernova is a TKL by Charue Design that draws inspiration from our favorite consoles and video games growing up. As usual, we have a deep history with the themes and ideas and have great love for the GameCube, Super Smash Brothers, and Paper Mario. Throughout the design process we had an incredible amount of fun adding in the quirks and qualities that are nostalgic of that time in our lives. We hope you enjoy our design and remember those good times growing up.

Growing up, all of our cousins spent our summer days in the same house-hold while our parents were at work. There were 9 of us and at the time no console could ever allow us all to play at once so we found our own solution to keeping entertained. Story-rich single player games were an activity in which we could all be engaged and have input and stakes in. One of us would play while everyone not just watched but directed what was to happen.
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door was our absolute favorite and you can find a related easter egg in the Supernova. Some other popular games for us included Super Smash Brothers Melee, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Super Monkey Ball, and Super Mario Sunshine. While the GameCube is old, we still play these games from time to time, and our the GB Runner for Charue Design was a Tournament Organizer for Super Smash Bros Melee at university (shoutout to Smash@SCU and Wombo Wednesdays).
