No eyes were found with the body...MARIO, appropriately made by a man named M A R I O (yes, with the spaces) is a Super Mario World hack detailing an unknown point in Mario's life. Some theorize it is Mario turning evil, while some think it is his suicide. It was posted on the SMW Central forums by the user Adam, detailing his experiences with the hack in Creepypasta fashion. But unlike most Creepypastas, the hack actually exists.The hack's levels are strange and empty, and the message boxes weird and unsettling. The game progresses through weird levels until you defeat the boss, after which a gruesome description of "Victim #1" (Princess Peach?) is shown. A text file that comes with the game can be decoded to an image, turning into a very, VERY Nightmare Fuel type picture that fits the description of the victim.Read about it here and download it here... if you dare. There's also a sequel, here.There's also a related music... morse code... thing... here.The author appears to be done with this, as he became a "normal" forum member on SMW Central before getting banned. The ARG portion of the hack that was seemingly going to be a thing will not be done. The original game still stands on its own, though.
This monstrosity contains examples of:
Victim #3, the victim was found slumped over his computer reading an article on TV Tropes about a creepy Mario rom hack...
