Mari0 Is a Super Mario Bros. and Portal Mashup

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 30th, 2011

Earlier this year we shared a humorous video focused on what Super Mario Bros. would be like if the brothers had Portal guns. Mari0 takes the idea and turns it into a real game.

Currently under development, Mari0 is an open-source platformer that takes the Super Mario Bros. and arms them with portal guns. The game supports map packs, has a built-in level editor, and supports simultaneous multiplayer. Normally we’d wait to highlight a game until a public release is available but the demo video of the game was too good to pass up. We’ll keep you posted when the game is released for public consumption.

If you’re itching to play a new game right now, you might want to check out another game from the same developer Not Tetris 2–a fun and goofy Tetris clone that sports a physics engine for realistic block stacking.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
