This meme is getting ridiculous.

What is a "Mario-like"?

A platformer? 2D or 3D? Kart racer? A party board game?

I don't get why tech writers are afraid of genres.

I think it fits, because it looks like it would feel exactly like Super Mario World.

So it's a 2D platformer?

And it's very different from Mario 64, which would also be a "Mario-like"...

So this game is a "Mario-like", and also not at all a "Mario-like". And that's not even getting into the Karts and the Parties...

So the most accurate and helpful descriptor would be "mario-like 2d platformer," but then you might have no reason to click on the link if you're a weirdo who thinks "Oh, that might mean a game like Mario Party!" ;)

I wasn't sure what to make of 'gay furry Mario-like'.... But the gameplay actually looks pretty polished - clearly inspired by SMB3! I'll give the demo a go.
