Another Princess Is In Our Castle is a goofy retelling of Super Mario 64, in which Nintendo’s plumber embarks on a horror adventure.
Super Mario 64 is a cult video game. Released in 1996, it is neither more nor less than the very first 3D adventure of the famous mustachioed plumber. Several decades later, he continues to fascinate fans, who compete in ingenuity to pay tribute to this master stallion in the 3D genre.
Another Princess Is In Our Castle delivers a completely different face of Mario’s epics: the project takes the form of a horror game in which the hero must escape the ghost of Peach (who died five years earlier). “It’s a horror experience inspired by Super Mario 64.” A playable demo is available here (we tried it and it works on Windows). The creator hopes to make it a full game.
Super Mario 64 as a first-person horror game
CM9_Animation was obviously inspired by the most successful horror games of recent years, with a hyper immersive first-person view (Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Outlast…). Equipped with a lantern, Mario must explore the iconic castle of the Mushroom Kingdom and investigate the strange phenomena that occur there. The gameplay is ultra simplistic and accessible.
In this replay of Super Mario 64, the goal is to collect all the statuettes bearing the image of the princess, without being pinched by the ectoplasm chasing after us (when you get caught, it’s game over). To do this, you often have to take to your heels (pay attention to the endurance gauge) or even hide in chests. The sound mix is sufficiently well worked to help us watch out for the enemy, knowing that the game immerses us in a scary atmosphere.

Luigi has made a name for himself as a ghost hunter, but why can’t Mario get into it too? That’s what developer CM9_Animation wondered, as they just unveiled their new Super Mario 64-inspired horror experience. any other atmosphere.
