A Maestro Has Made A First-Person Adventure Game In ‘Super Mario Maker 2’
I don't know about you but whenever I play games like Minecraft and Super Mario Maker 2 I think I've been pretty creative right up to the point I go online. At which point you see the next level that other people are working at. They've built functioning computers in the game, recreated famous settings from films, or, as in the case of Negi-san, turned Mario Maker from a side-scrolling platformer into a first-person adventure game.
Negi-san's 3D Maze House creation is dauntingly impressive. Using blocks they've made each room of the level into a screen similar to the old 90s adventure games. There's the main window that shows an illustration of the room you're in, and then the bottom of the room is made into an interface, giving you information about where you are in the haunted house. There's a simple navigation system, too, using pipes you make your character in the house go forwards, backwards, turn left, or right.
It's best seen to be understood (watch it below or here if you're reading on mobile):
Many things about 3D Maze House (which you can play for yourself with this level code P59-698-55G) are impressive, but I think what stands out the most are the illustrations Negi-san has produced for the first-person view. Using perspective, they've completely sold me on the idea that I'm looking at 3D space. It's all the more splendid when you remember that Nintendo made Super Mario Maker without this use of its tools in mind.
I can't wait to see what Negi-san and the community think up next. A Super Mario real-time strategy game? A Super Mario RPG? A fighting game? The virtual world is their oyster.
