Mario has something to tell you

Want to know if I quit my job? Play this game, which I sent around my office earlier today.

Click to start the game, then use arrow keys to play.

Six weeks hence indie gaming love will gush from this site. I stayed up all night working on my resignation though, so I’ll have to take a nap beforehand.

    You sir are an idiot and an attention whore. You rank down there with two girls and a cup and the retard from Goonies…

    Just a quick question:
    What did you actually DO at 2K?

  5. meujoystick says:

    Parabéns pela originalidade! Tomara que seus projetos sejam tão criativos quanto a sua demissão. Que tal procurar a Nintendo?

    NICE JOB! I know your drama! Sometimes I make small things and I have capacity to do BIG things, and what I see is that I make just periferic things on my job. I just stay on it because I’m not graduated yet. One day, I will be! Nice job guy! Greetings from Brazil!

    Hi , i have an idea for a game that i think you may like never done before (i dont think anyway)if you do make any dosh from it i would like a little(lol). Anyway the idea for the game.

    The principle of the game is that the player has to figure all the controls / story things that you can do etc for themselves! no instructions pure gameplay they will have to figure it al out on there own. just think of it. they start as someone in an enviroment an strole around to figure stuff out an have a 2 or three path story like say Fable etc.

    I think this would be a really good idea dont know what you think . but i think if you just released the game trailer with just half a level an dont let anything slip then the game should(hopefully ) get alot of hype.
    all the best

    Greetings to Brazil!


    That’s an interesting idea sham-own. I don’t usually read instructions, so every game is like that for me :D

    Unfortunately I think a project like that would be much larger than the kinds of games I plan to make, but you’re right it would be interesting. You should try making a simplified (2D?) version yourself!

    Well done!!

  30. Good Luck in you new challenge!!!

  31. @Katie: I seem to recall that someone did something quite similar to that. He hacked a Bejeweled game so that when his girlfriend got a certain score, it would display a message asking to marry her. I wish I had a source I could point to…

    Sinceramente? Isso é bem coisa de Australiano mesmo, o cara tem um emprego bom, que é sonho de 99% das pessoas que trabalham com programação e amam jogos. Ai o cara se demite para ser “Desenvolvedor Indie”, a pro inferno doido. Não sei quanto os puxa-saco ai de cima, mas aqui na Universidade tu virou motivo de piada. Sem noção d kralhu
