A guy receives a mysterious letter from his girlfriend, arrives at a castle to find her missing and countless rooms full of monsters… that’s the classic 1996 setting Super Mario 64sure, but it’s also very survival horror, which is why this new fan-made project is a perfect fit.
Through the Nintendo Lifethis is Another princess is in our castle“one Super Mario 64 awe-inspiring horror experience” where you “decided to return to Peach’s castle a few years after the princess’s death, but something went wrong…”
While this looks like a first-person mod, it’s actually a completely fan-made project from the ground up, designed with a view in mind, and although it’s currently just a mod. short playable demo, its creator Claudio Mondin hopes to eventually turn it into something more substantial.
Here’s the trailer made by Mondin:
And here’s some gameplay footage, showing the main point of sneaking around the castle collecting items, while trying to avoid a Princess that’s definitely not a peach:
Like Mondin said, it’s mostly just a demo, so don’t expect too much of it outside of some sneaking (and its very interesting novelty). I’m going to play a few more games today just to see what the promised mystery really is (hopefully the ghost is just upset about it) her cake turned out to be crap).
You can download the demo and play it’s here. I don’t want to hear anything about lawyers in the commentsor, just go and enjoy something fun a fan makes.
