I'm not really a side-scroller-game kind of guy, but I know millions of people are, and this takes the biggest side-scroller and takes it into the FPS arena. The graphics are cool, and I wish the whole game was like this! There's also a behind-the-scenes video where the guy who made it (Brandon from the Freddie Wong channel) talks about how it was created. Enjoy!
A live-action re-imagination of Nintendo 8-bit hero Super Mario as an angsty, mushroom-eating, down-on-his-luck plumber was a big hit this week at the South by Southwest film festival in Austin, Texas.
"Mario" is a trailer-length short which filmmaker Joe Nicolosi doesn't intend to turn into a feature film. You can check out all two minutes of the project below.
