Are you a Nintendo® Super Mario Bros.™ (スーパーマリオブラザーズ) fan? How about Valve®’s Portal™? Now imagine if you combine these two hit games – a 1985 and a 2007 game, together? What do you get?
Mari0 is powered by the LÖVE framework which allows creation of 2D games using the Lua programming language possible. A game crossover developed by the Stabyourself.net team, a two-man studio formed in early 2011 by Maurice Guégan and Sašo Smolej.
What are some of the features that comes with Mari0?
- Complete recreation of Super Mario Bros.™
- Elements from Portal™
- Portal gun that shoots portals
- 4-player simultaneaous coop via LAN or online (update: coming at a later date)
- Level editor that was used to create the levels in the game
- 33 different hats
- Downloadable Mappacks
- Game modifiers for extra fun
