ASMB Games has been forced to take down its spoof game No Mario’s Sky after Nintendo sent out a request for it to be removed from their site. The title is the latest to fall under Nintendo’s recent attempts to quash all fan games.

Thanks everyone for playing and enjoying our little fan game. We would love to see an official Nintendo game in this style — a Mario Galaxy-style game in 2D within a procedurally-generated universe.

Keeping the spirit of its game alive, and not to mention a touch of that rebellious attitude, ASMB replaced No Mario’s Sky with the equally cheeky title called DMCA’s Sky. You can download it for free at the studio’s official website.

Help Spaceman Finn search for Princess Mango in an infinite universe (that may contain no Mangoes).

Featuring crazy Moombas, An Infinite Universe, Muscle, Amazing Physics and a Radical Space Ship; DMCA’s Sky is the hackneyed remake-gone-mashup you’ve been craving.

You see? He has orange overalls, not red! And he certainly doesn’t have a mustache under that helmet. Nope, no sir.

And just to point out, Nintendo does have the legal right and obligation to take these games down. Even superior products like the Metroid 2 remake AM2R don’t stand a chance in Nintendo’s attempts to protect its IP. It sucks, and I bet plenty of employees at Nintendo equally despise the idea of smothering fan creativity.

That’s just the world we live in, though. My guess is that if you are talented enough to make a game that can stand up to Nintendo’s quality standards, you’re also creative enough to whip up some unique characters too.
