    This meme is getting ridiculous.

    What is a “Mario-like”?

    A platformer? 2D or 3D? Kart racer? A party board game?

    I don’t get why tech writers are afraid of genres.

      I think it fits, because it looks like it would feel exactly like Super Mario World.

        So it’s a 2D platformer?

        And it’s very different from Mario 64, which would also be a “Mario-like”…

        So this game is a “Mario-like”, and also not at all a “Mario-like”. And that’s not even getting into the Karts and the Parties…

          So the most accurate and helpful descriptor would be “mario-like 2d platformer,” but then you might have no reason to click on the link if you’re a weirdo who thinks “Oh, that might mean a game like Mario Party!” ;)

    I wasn’t sure what to make of ‘gay furry Mario-like’… But the gameplay actually looks pretty polished - clearly inspired by SMB3! I’ll give the demo a go.
