Mario Maker: "Given The Choice"
Posted: Friday June 19th, 2015 by

I watched a video of Nintendo's World Championships 2015 last night, where two gamers (Cosmo and John Numbers) dueled it out for the title playing hellish Super Mario Bros. levels made by developers Nintendo's Treehouse. If you've not heard of Mario Maker, it's Nintendo basically giving you the assets and controls to make Super Mario Bros. levels of your own.

Well as I watched these two gifted gamers fairly quickly figure out these insane levels, I thought to myself: you know, if I was Mario, I'd be all "Nope. That's it. I'm out". I mean seriously, the map you see in the comic was basically recreation of a screen cap I grabbed from the WC15 stream. Well, as close as I could get with the sprites that were available to me. And, it's not even that crazy compared to some of the stuff in the video. I just needed a moderate amount of relateable monster clutter.

Here's the video I watched, if you're curious:

Mario Maker is currently slated for release on the WiiU this September.

Sidenote: Sorry the comic didn't get posted last night. I uh... well... I fell asleep at my desk working on it.
