It’s only a matter of time before there’s an official video game version of Nintendo and Lego’s upcoming interactive Super Mario building sets. Using Media Molecule’s Dreams, master video game remaker/demaker Bearly Regal beat them to the punch.
It’s basically Lego Super Mario: The Video Game. Over the course of 60-plus hours, game designer Bearly Regal (who we’ve featured previously) painstakingly recreated Lego’s strange, blocky interactive Mario figure, down to its LED eyes.
Once Super Mario was made, he built the plastic plumber a world to explore. He’s basically building with Lego pieces within Dreams, snapping bits together, and then adding programmed behaviors using processes I could not begin to explain.
