The Gritty Adult Mario Game You Want But Will Never Get

Earlier this year, Splash Damage character artist Jon Fletcher crafted a magnificently twisted take on Mario for Polycount's Brawl contest. Now he gives us his twisted take on Mario's lanky brother and a splash screen for a game we'll never play but desperately want to.

With a full 3D model of large and in charge Mario in place, Fletcher set about giving the portly plumber someone to play with. Enter Luigi, long, lean and ready to get down to business with his half-unzipped fly and ghost-busting vacuum cleaner strapped to his back. Together the dynamic duo is ready to take down the evil forces of Bowser Petroleum once and for all.

I'll be playing this in my dreams tonight, Mr Fletcher. While our readers busy themselves visiting the Polycount link below to see how your work progressed over the past months, I'll be desperately trying to move Mario's massive arse through a tiny sewer pipe, while Luigi sits in the corner and cries.

Luigi W.I.P. [Polycount — Thanks TJ!]



    Holy crap do I want a Mario reboot.

    Reminds me a lot of Baginski's "Fallen Art"

    ...Uncannily so.

    The Bowser pipe symbols look like BP.

      Gulf of mexico not ringing any bells either? How about the oil stains on the pipes ;)

        Oh and the oil rig or bowser if you will in the background!

      congratulations, captain obvious!

    As awesome as this is, I'm fine I a "gritty" Mario never surfaces in reality. I love my Mario and Co reminding me of younger days :P Oddly though, I do want a gritty re-boot of Pokemon. Possibly because I always wanted to beat the ever-loving shit out of Snorlax. Seriously dude. Get out of my way.

    I want to see Peach!

    I don't want this at all. Just make a new different game about these guys. What is with people and reboots these days. It's always been and still is something you do from a marketting perspective, consumers certainly need not hate them, but clamouring for them?!?
