Super Mario 64 comes to the PC, thanks to a developer experimenting in Unity

New, 9 comments

If you're in need of a quick Super Mario 64 fix, look no further than this Unity remake of the game's first level, Bob-Omb Battlefield, playable on Linux, Mac and PC. The remake comes to us courtesy of developer Erik Roystan Ross, who built the project in Unity 3D.

"I originally built this to demonstrate the Super Character Controller, a custom character controller written for Unity, but I got a little carried away," he wrote. "The project is open source and can be downloaded by anybody and used for anything, outside of selling it."

I played the level on my Mac for a few minutes, and it works pretty well. Not only does it (obviously) look better than the original, but it's easy to play even with a keyboard and a touch mousepad — I took out some morning frustrations by stomping on a pack of Goombas. Your sacrifice was not in vain, friends.

Sadly, Ross said he has no plans to develop the game further. You can watch it in action above, or try it out for yourself by downloading it from his website.
