Hypernova joined the MFGG mainsite on Feb 12, 2008 and the MFGG Forums on July 22, 2008. He made several engines from Saturn Mario Engine to Supernova Mario Bros 2 Engine. Hypernova is famous for making Mario fangames like Highway Trouble and Mario and Luigi vs the furbies, and several of his fangames are part of Supernova's Furby Saga. He used to have an addiction of obtaining as many MFGG forums badges as possible. Hypernova is responsible for creating the Game of the Month badge and porting phpBB themes over to MyBB forums.
Hypernova first started making fangames at the time he discovered Game Maker 5 in early 2007 using default Game Maker platformer engines. Later on in early 2008, he discoveredHello Engine 3 and started to make his first Mario fangame, SMB3A (Super Mario Bros. 3 Advance), at which point, he stumbled upon MFGG. His earlier posts deemed unintelligent and silly for getting attention, which was accounted for his language barriers and autistic behaviors.
Hypernova changed his name from Saturn to Supernova around Thanksgiving 2009. And then somewhere around 2015-2016, he changed his name to Hypernova.
Hypernova is a fairly active member and contributor on MFGG. He was part of Volunteer Technical Support Team and in charge of the MFGG DeviantART Group, but sadly none of these went far. As for now he's focusing on getting his life straight and making fan/indie games.
He also gained a temporary Tech Admin position for porting over themes from PHPBB to MyBB, although this seems to have become a permanent position. Hypernova and VinnyVideo worked together to build dashboard for improving the mainsite's comment moderation system. Also, on September 18, 2018, Hypernova became a mainsite comment mod. As part of the staff shuffling in November 28, 2018. Hypernova was promoted to Quality Control.
Hypernova created his original ref right before he left in March 2012. His character is a dark blue Kirby with combat glasses and a helmet with a rank of Captain. The whereabout of this ref is unknown since 2016.
In Christmas 2012, Hypernova announced another ref to represent his evil side: Roushi. A yellow Yoshi wears bandanna with a signature "X" who love doing bad deeds and mischievous activities. And he actually turned MFGGers including Nova into kitties. Roushi was killed in a ski accident at Japan in 2018.
And since late 2016, Hypernova created his third ref: Martini Dratini. Just a normal Dratini but later on evoled into Marty the Dragonair.

Saturn Mario Engine
Hypernova started work on this engine August 15, 2008 while he was still a rookie. However, due to the fact he borrowed GML code from various engines, his first engine came out very buggy and horribly organized.
Saturn Mario Engine 2+
Despite negative criticism he has received on his earlier engines, Hypernova has improved his coding ability over time, So far his SMB2 (Saturn Mario Engine 4) and Super Mario World (Saturn Mario Engine 3) engines received better receptions.
