Mario-themed No Man's Sky parody shut down by Nintendo's lawyers

An indie mashup of Mario and No Man’s Sky has unsurprisingly been shut down by Nintendo’s lawyers.

No Mario’s Sky allowed players to explore the 2D side-scrolling world of Mario before hopping into their ship and taking to space. The game lasted a week before developer ASMB Games was instructed to take it offline.

"Due to a copyright claim by Nintendo we've had to take the game down," ASMB Games wrote. "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. No Mario's Sky is no more-io!"

However, the developer has already launched a replacement, DMCA’s Sky. "Help Spaceman Finn search for Princess Mango in an infinite universe," the description for Digital Millennium Copyright Act's Sky reads. "Featuring crazy Moombas, an Infinite Universe, muscle, amazing physics and a radical space ship."

These tweaks should help it stay online.
