Ever wondered what it would look like to mash up Portal and Super Mario 64? Well, your wish has been granted.
Prolific modder Kaze Emanuar uploaded a video showing off a new creation, Portal Mario 64, which you can download here. It basically combines the portal mechanic from Valve’s Portal with Super Mario 64. The video from Emanuar’s channel is pretty self explanatory:
As you can see, the mod allows players to set portals wherever they want to on stages in Super Mario 64, and use them to teleport from one place to the other. They’re even recognizably the portals from Portal, with their blue and orange color scheme. Most interestingly, you can use these portals to trap other characters within them, like Emanuar does with Koopa the Quick at the end of the video.
Emanuar’s on a roll: earlier this year, he created that an online multiplayer romhack for Super Mario 64 that got shut down. Before that, made a number of impressive, ambitions romhacks like this one, which adds the possession mechanic from Super Mario Odyssey to Super Mario 64, and this one, which adds a number of new levels to the classic game. He’s also made this mod, which adds some sounds from Big Shaq’s comedic “Da Ting Go” rap to Super Mario 64. In short, the dude’s a genius.
