This dramatic reinvention of Super Mario Bros. by Cory Godbey is called 'Bit and Run: Mario's Ladder.' The web series is a delightful twist on the classic video game, with intrigue, drama, a piano soundtrack and even a death scene. Best of all, the entire short is done in 8-bit to honor the original.
Check out 'Bit and Run: Mario's Ladder' by Cory Godbey above. I don't know about you, but I like this version of the Super Mario Bros. far better!
