Super Mario Maker is a wonderful celebration of everything that makes a Mario game special. It has the charm, the happiness, and the soul-crushing reality that Waluigi means nothing in a world of Mario. That’s right. Super Mario Maker has taken a much darker twist, one in which Waluigi has to come to terms with the fact that he is nothing and never can be. Heavy stuff for a game in which turtle shells are lethal weapons.
No matter how unfortunate it may seem, this is the reality that Kris (@themaplebeast) has brought forth in his level called Waluigi’s Unbearable Existence.
The level starts off simple enough with a tricky crouch jump mechanic, but it soon takes a turn into the dark void that is Waluigi’s brain. His inner demons manifest themselves in the form of messages written out in floating coins. Seriously, it’s really dark.
But don’t just take my word for it, check it out below. And for more on Super Mario Maker and Super Mario’s 30th anniversary, keep checking back with Gamespresso.
