Despite being one of the most anticipated games of 2016, No Man’s Sky just didn’t meet the overhyped expectations that were liberally applied by gamers everywhere.
And we guess it would be naive if we said we didn’t see it coming. You see, one dick-shaped monster shows up and the novelty kinda wears off.
Even if it does resemble a glorious steed.
If you too were disappointed by a universe of infinite blandness, you can try your luck at No Mario’s Sky. Yep, it’s exactly what you think. A glorious mashup of both worlds in a blaze of 2D glory.
Astonishingly, the game was made in a mere 72 hours by a team of four designers at ASMB Games and is available for download on their website.
But don’t let us spruik the delights of an infinite Mario universe, take a look at the maker’s description.
“Featuring 10s of Goombas, An Infinite Universe, Muscle Toad, “Original” Music, Amazing Physics and a Radical Space Ship; No Mario’s Sky is the hackneyed remake-gone-mashup you’ve been craving.”
To be perfectly fair, you had us at “Muscle Toad”.
Suss some of the exceptionally strange gameplay footage below. May all your Goombas be mightily crushed.
