First Level of Super Mario 64 Recreated Using Unity.

The next-gen consoles, including the likes of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, have undoubtedly provided us with high-end, graphically-intensive gaming experience. Until then, let’s enjoy the beloved video game company’s entry into the 21st century with Super Mario 64 in beautifully crisp high definition — courtesy computer science student Erik Roystan Ross.

Unfortunately, however, Ross himself doesn’t plan on developing this any further or making updates. “I currently do not have any plans to develop this any further or to resolve any bugs, unless they’re horrendously gamebreaking and horrendously simple to fix. Programmer and 3D animator Erik Ross never set out to accomplish such a gargantuan task, but he managed to recreate Super Mario 64‘s first level in 1080p on his own using the Unity Engine. When taken on a trip down the memory lane and reflecting on the SNES, Dreamcast or N64, though we’re not going to be stunned by their visuals, still the old-school games appear to be as addictive and appealing as ever.

Replacing them are crowd pleasers like giant springs and coin blocks. (Via) Ross built both the program and the “Bob-Omb Battlefield” level in Unity, a programming language popular with indie and multi-platform video game developers. All included code libraries’ previous licences still apply.” If you wanna give the game a go you can play here from Ross’ blog and if you have a controller you can plug into your PC it supports gamepads. However, if you want to rekindle the old flames by playing this greatest platformer, you’ll either have to set up that old Nintendo 64 (which most of you won’t have) or use some kind of emulation software. Apart from the fact that you can pick up and play the game in your browser using a Unity plug-in, the developer has done a sterling job in improving the visuals and accuracy of the classic platformer, while it looks and feels fairly smooth.

You can also download the desktop version from links as below: Per developer instructions, when playing the desktop versions, do not edit the input settings in the Unity input menu. He has a wide range of interests when it comes to tech but he’s currently spending a big chunk of his time writing about privacy, cyber security, and anything policy related.
