John Romero Reveals PC Version Of Super Mario Bros 3

If you didn’t already know then you might be surprised to learn that Doom creators ID Software created their very own Super Mario Bros 3 demo on the PC. The demo was created to entice Nintendo to bring the game to the PC. Obviously this never happened and instead the project turned into Commander Keen. This is the very first time we’ve seen footage of the PC build of the game created by John Carmack and John Romero and you can check it out, below

This is a demo of IFD’s (soon to be id Software) Super Mario 3 demo created for Nintendo on the PC. The demo was completed on September 28, 1990.

  1. I do like my Wii U but sometimes I think Nintendo could do better on PC.

    They could still create all the hardware they like as peripherals and not be limited by other parts of the hardware for their game’s performance

  2. THIS GOES FAR FAR FAR FURTHER DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE OF INDUSTRY VS NINTENDO

    THIS INDUSTRY HATES NINTENDO THIS WAS NOT ID HOPING TO BRING NINTENDO OVER IT WAS THE USA COMPUTER INDUSTRY TRYING TO STOP NINTENDO

    IT WAS ALSO A EXAMPLE OF HOW FAR BEHIND PC WAS TO DEDICATED CONSOLE TECH

    NES RAN IT FINE PC COULDNT RUN SHIT MORE AND MORE POWER AND NORE AND MORE ADD ON CARDS WERE NEEDED TO ALLOW PC TO RUN CONSOLE GAMES

    THIS IS THE INDUSTRYS EARLY “””NINTENDO MUST GO THIRD PARTY HATE CAMPAIN

    WITCH STILL EXISTS TO THIS DAY….WHY CAN PEOPLE NOT SEE THE TRUTH WAKE UP

  3. it took ID years and years of coding and ever increasing power on pc to try and match a nes like console TGE IDEA PC WAS ALWAYS AHEAD IS COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT….

    PC COULDNT DO SOUND PC COULDNT DO GRAPHICS PC COULDNT DO CONTROL

    A DEDICATED SYSTEM WILL ALWAYS BE CLOCK FOR CLOCK MEG FOR MEG MUCH FASTER THAN A PC…

    IT WAS NINTENDO AND CONSOLE THAT GAVE US CONTROLLER EVOLUTION TOO

    PC FANS ARE LIEING BASTARDS WGEN IT COMES TO THIS HISTORY
