First Level of Super Mario 64 recreated in Unity
Roystan Ross released a in browser version of the first level of the gaming classic Super Mario 64 on March 12. Faithfully recreated using the Unity Engine, and with gorgeous updated graphics, it gives players a chance to see what an HD update of the video game classic could look like.
Ross has stated he has no plans to continue with the project to recreate the whole game saying, “I probably am not going to expand on this project any further, since it would be insanely time consuming to continue any further, and my primary motivation to build this was to drive development on the Super Character Controller and provide a demo project for it.”
With controller support and a downloadable copy available for free this is a treat of unrivaled nostalgia for many gamers and gives some of the newer ones a chance to get their hands on what could arguably be considered the grandfather of all modern games.
Info about his project and a copy of the game can be downloaded over at his blog at the following address:
