Did you ever notice that Super Mario Bros. 3 has many aspects of a stage play? There’s several elements and situations along the game that may suggest that the entire Super Mario Bros. 3 story is actually a theatrical play. This are the elements that I remember: - The game starts (and ends) with a theatre curtain. - The bushes and color squares, among other elements of the game, seem to be flat (even made of cardboard) and cast shadows over the background. - Several elements of the game are hanging out with ropes, just like a stage prop. - Other elements are screwed, like fixed on the background. - At the end of each level, the scene becomes black and it cuts on zigzag. What do you think? Did the whole story of Super Mario Bros. 3 actually happened or was it a stage play?
I played Life & Death when I was but a child and its depiction of medical procedures frightened me far more than Alone in the Dark ever did. The fluids that spilled out of patients’ pixel-parts were far more real than the things that went bump in the night. The Trauma Center series has a more madcap take on surgical procedures than Life & Death ever did (it was the Police Quest of surgery sims) but it can’t match up to Surgeon Simulator 2013. Nothing can. Handsome Mike Bithell of Thomas Was Alone fame brought this to my attention. It was made for a Gamejam by folks from Bossa Studios. Imagine Octodad performing a heart transplant, then watch.
