Sicari is the first SMW ROM Hack created by Eevee developed and finished in 2013, serving as (what was) the first installment Sicari Franchise, and later had a remake known as Sicari Remastered. The game was known for being one of the first completed overhaul ROM Hacks that uses 99% completely original graphics to create it's own universe.

For being one of Eevee's first projects and to show it off while still being a new user, it was unheard of for such a new user to start (and finish) an ambitious project. It also usually takes a few years to finish, whereas Sicari was started and finished in a little over a year according to the time-span and information provided between the first and last posts Eevee has made in the project thread. Immediately after release, K-16_-_Story_of_Steel would be started.

Story

A young Sicari, sick of her own life as an assassin, sees an opportunity of redemption when Niscura rises to crash the worlds of Paradia and Demonia together. Sicari and her "sister" K-16 decides to take down Niscura and her 5 minions before it's too late.

Development History

Originally started as a test hack of sorts, Eevee joined SMW Central to show off Sicari on January 17th 2013 showing off an early version of the overworld, a lot of levels, and in general the graphics style of the game. One thing is for sure, the "Castle Destruction" cutscene telling of Jerry the Jester's defeat that was shown was never used in the final game. The player graphics have also been changed many times, and also the overworld. In March 17th Eevee lost progress from a faulty computer, and thus lost 7 levels and many graphical bits, with Emerald Palace being one of the levels. On May 10th, the level list was revealed showing off 35 stages planned with every name of the level included.
