St. Clair Publications, sometimes nicknamed "The Pubs", is the personal production company of User:Alexs23743, whose real name is Alex St. Clair. While Alex has been artistically inclined for the vast majority of his life, he didn't really begin to assign a "production company" to his art until the first or second grade, so that puts the company's "founding" sometime in between 1994 and 1996. It was originally known as Groovy Publications and went through a bevy of name changes between 1997 and 2000; the name "St. Clair Publications" has been in use since mid-October 2000.

"In-universe", the company has existed since July 5, 1972 (with Alex's mom running it until May 1996).

Video game production

While St. Clair Publications' video game production arm was officially founded on November 20, 1990, it did not announce its first video game until April 1992 and ultimately didn't release it until that November. Even then, with the company's primary art medium being TV production, St. Clair Publications didn't really take off as a video game producer until 1999.

Media produced by the company

NES

Super NES

  • Super Mario All-Stars: Second Quest (1997): What essentially amounts to a ROM hack of each game in the Super Mario Bros. trilogy.
  • Yuki's Adventure (2020): ROM hack of Super Mario World 1 in which a Koopa tries to overthrow Bowser, defeat Mario and Luigi, and conquer the Mushroom Kingdom! The Koopa is not to be confused with Yuki Sakura despite being an obvious Koopa double of her.

Nintendo 64

  • Pokémon Golf (1999): A Pokémon-themed golf game, obviously.
  • The World of Nintendo (video game) (2000): A game based on the 1996 TV series mentioned below.

GameCube

  • Mario Football (2002): An American football-themed Mario sports game.
  • Pokémon Golf: Hoenn Tour (2005): A Pokémon-themed golf game, obviously, now for Generation III!
  • The World of Nintendo 2 (2005): Sequel to the original game that takes the series in a far different direction.

Wii

  • The World of Nintendo 3: Nintendo Generations (2010): Essentially Nintendo's answer to the then-pending Sonic Generations (and released in advance of the show's 15th season premiere), this is an RPG where you travel through all then-seven generations of video gaming to save the Nintendo universe from an "ancient demon" who's trying to rip it apart.
  • Land of the Lost Pubs (2011): Released in advance of St. Clair Publications' own 40th anniversary, this is essentially an Epic Mickey clone that features the stars of "lost" TV shows from the company.

Wii-U

  • Koopa Troopa (2013 game): Grand Theft Auto-styled game in which you, a Koopa, unseat Bowser and try to take over the Mushroom Kingdom yourself.
  • Tropes vs. Women in Pokémon Training (2015): Parody of the Pokémon franchise starring a "feminist" villainous team.
  • Anita Sarkeesian vs. the World (2015): 2D platformer in which an infamous "feminist" by that name gets into a fight with Yuki Sakura just as another, with an intent to kill all men, separates our world into male- and female-only worlds. Now, with Anita sentenced to "community service" that amounts to being Yuki's lackey for the whole game, they must re-unite both worlds and hopefully, in the process, gain a greater appreciation for both genders.
  • Super Mario All-Stars X (2016): Celebrates Mario's 35th anniversary by re-releasing a bunch of classic Mario games onto the New Super Mario Bros. Wii/U engine.
  • Donkey Kong Country DX (2016): Released at the same time as the above (as Mario and DK both debuted in the same game...), this is the same game, but re-releasing the Donkey Kong Country trilogy onto DKC: Tropical Freeze's engine.
  • Pokémon Stadium X (2016): Released on Pokémon's 20th anniversary in Japan, this game starts out as a straight port of the original game until you unlock Round 2, at which point the mechanics of later Pokémon games come to life.

Switch

  • Super Mario Kart DX (2017): Remake of Super Mario Kart on MK8/Deluxe's engine.
  • Life in FCHS: The New Old Video Game (2018): Donkey Kong 64 style collectathon 3D platformer that features nine new levels and nine re-creations of old levels.
  • New Super Life in FCHS 64 Advance Deluxe (2019): 2D sidescroller that's a parody of the then-recently-released New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.
  • A remake of Mario Football (2019)
  • Mario Kart: Ancient Circuit (2020): Mario Kart game that involves competing to put a broken ancient relic back together. Intended to be far more competitive than existing games.
  • Mario Football: Mushroom Blitz (2021): The third entry in the Mario Football franchise.
  • Tropes vs. Women in Pokémon Training Deluxe (2022): Remake of the original TvW that adds Generation 8 elements.
  • Super Mario Sunshine Deluxe (2022): On its 20th anniversary, a Super Mario 64 DS-inspired remake of SMS.
  • Pokémon Golf: Galarian Masters: (2022): A third entry in the Pokémon Golf series, updated for Generation 8 (and up to Pokémon Legends: Arceus) and with many new gimmicks.
  • Super Smash Stadium (video game) (2022): An actual video game of Super Smash Stadium, listed below, released on the show's 50th anniversary, that's probably more well known for the epic beatdowns Alex and his fandom gave the Smash Bros. fandom, including cease-and-desists, DDoS attacks, doxings, hacks of SmashBoards, and even a few lawsuits and prosecutions!

DS

  • Donkey Kong 64 DS (2006): On DK's 25th anniversary, an attempt by Alex to apply the Super Mario 64 DS formula to another N64 classic.
  • Paper Mario: The Temple of Time (2007): Outright sequel to The Thousand-Year Door that expands on its gameplay.

3DS

Other games

  • In 1982, St. Clair Publications tried to make a video game of its then-wildly successful show, Biker Chicks, for the Atari 2600. A combination of the show's cancellation that October and the eventual Video Game Crash of '83 caused it to be cancelled.

TV shows

Unless otherwise noted, these shows are currently self-aired on the cable channel SPTV (short for "St. Clair Publications Televsion").

  • Super Smash Stadium: Game show that has been active since 1972. Originally produced by Suburban Sprawl Entertainment; SP entered the fold in 1977.
  • The World of Nintendo (1986 TV series): Prototype to Captain N: The Game Master that lasted two seasons and 60 episodes.
  • The World of Nintendo (1996 TV series): Far more successful crossover series that ran for nearly 17 seasons and over 200 episodes.
    • The World of NEXTendo: A "next-gen" spinoff that only lasted one season and 20 episodes.
  • SP Bowl XXXIV (2000): Super Bowl parody in which Ash's Pikachu took on Team Rocket's Meowth.
  • SP Bowl XXXV (2001): Similar to the above, but now it was the "Nintendo Good Guys" vs. the "Nintendo Bad Guys" (billed as Mario, DK, Kirby, Ash Ketchum, and Banjo/Kazooie vs. Bowser, K. Rool, Dedede, Giovanni, and Grunty).
  • SP Bowl XLVI (2012): This game featured the Koopas against the Goombas.
  • SP Bowl 50 (2016): Mario and Luigi took on Sonic and Tails in this game.
  • Alex's Game Shows: Technically an unrelated series, but it was titled "Super Smash Bros. Game Show Mêlée" at the time of its debut (summer 2006), then went to "...Game Show Brawl" before assuming its current name sometime in 2010.
  • Gamer Girls' Garage: Attempted PBS series that reviews video games and has been active since 1991. St. Clair Publications only funded this series starting in 1995, and didn't outright produce it until November 9, 2020, when the company took over following the death of one of the show's original producers.

Other stuff

  • Indigo Girls: Cheerleaders seen on Indigo Plateau that represent each Pokémon type.
  • Kooper (grocery store): Infrequently-recurring Kroger knockoff.
  • Koopvid-19: A running gag, obviously based on Covid-19, that has been seen on a few 2020's works by "The Pubs".
  • Nintendo News: TWoN's "show within a show".
  • Unova Shore: Incredibly trashy TV series that was made to mock Jersey Shore.
