Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition – Vater moddet Game für Tochter

YouTube: Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition

Schöne Geschichte, passend zur ersten Episode von “Tropes vs Women in Video Games”: Ein dreijähriges Mädchen zockt Donkey Kong und versteht nicht, warum sie nicht Prinzessin Peach spielen und Mario retten kann. Daraufhin moddet ihr Vater das Game für sie. Als nächstes Spiel empfehle ich Gender-Bender Zelda. [Update: Gender-Patch als Download (.zip)]

My three year old daughter and I play a lot of old games together. Her favorite is Donkey Kong. Two days ago, she asked me if she could play as the girl and save Mario. She’s played as Peach in Super Mario Bros. 2 and naturally just assumed she could do the same in Donkey Kong. I told her we couldn’t in that particular Mario game, she seemed really bummed out by that. So what else am I supposed to do? Now I’m up at midnight hacking the ROM, replacing Mario with Pauline. I’m using the 2010 NES Donkey Kong ROM. I’ve redrawn Mario’s frames and I swapped the palettes in the ROM. I replaced the M at the top with a P for Pauline. Thanks to Kevin Wilson for giving me the lead on the tools and advice.
