Sorry Mario Bros!

sorry-mario-bros
In Sorry Mario Bros! wartet Prinzessin Peach nicht auf ihre Rettung, sondern nimmt ihr Schicksal selbst in die Hand und macht sich auf die Flucht. Das Freeware-Game hat zwar nur drei Level und ein paar kleine Bugs, macht aber trotzdem Spaß und ist mal wieder ein schöner Beitrag zum Dauerthema* „Geschlechter-Stereotypen in Videospielen“. Den Mario-Klon gibt’s für Windows, Mac und Linux zum freien Download. (via Superlevel)

Scott and I took a short break from The Wild Eternal to make Sorry Mario Bros, a free 2D platformer which gives Princess Toadstool the ability to jump, and thereby free herself from King Koopa’s castle. The game spans three of Super Mario Bros’ original levels, this time from right to left, as the Princess jumps, stomps, floats, and warps her way from the dark castle dungeon up to the bright and wonderful Mushroom Kingdom, proving that female protagonists can be just as awesome as male protagonists.

Keep in mind that the game was made over the course of 2 weeks and won’t be perfect. You’ll find bugs, but hopefully you’ll still be able to enjoy stompin’ stuff as the best princess the Mushroom Kingdom ever knew.

Why’d We Do This?

Mostly for fun, and for exercise. We thought it’d be a fun else-worlds sort of story to tell, moving backwards through the mushroom kingdom. The idea was floating around long before we’d heard about the @iamagamer_ca game jam, which was based thematically around strong female protagonists.
