Mario, but completely covered in fur thanks to Unreal 4

More weird engine tests

Do you remember how many Super Mario Bros. recreations littered LittleBigPlanet? Mario is iconic. He is video games. So it’s not surprising folks messing around in Unreal Engine 4 continue to use the model.

It’s more fun in these context-free situations, I think, than the last one, which felt more like the commercial where Mario jumps into a kitchen to drink your family’s hard-earned milk. The more cartoonish setting didn’t look great, either. Tech’s one thing, art direction another.

Here we have Mario covered to the eyeballs in hair (above) and an even more random physics test (below) that may make you nostalgic for Super Mario Sunshine, depending where in that camp you fall.
