Nintendo’s lawyers have been out in full force this week and have taken down No Mario’s Sky due to a copyright claim. However that hasn’t stopped the team of four who were behind the game as they have cheekily relaunched the game as DMCA’s Sky. The team have also changed the game’s description to the following:
“Spaceman Finn search for Princess Mango in an infinite universe.”
“Featuring crazy Moombas, An Infinite Universe, Muscle, Amazing Physics and a Radical Space Ship; DMCA’s Sky is the hackneyed remake-gone-mashup you’ve been craving.”
ASMB who created the game in just 72 hours also put out the following statement due to the takedown notice. The game is free and is available to download, right here.
“No Mario’s Sky is no more-io! Due to a copyright claim by Nintendo we’ve had to take the game down”
“Thanks everyone for playing and enjoying our little fan game. We would love to see an official Nintendo game in this style – a Mario Galaxy-style game in 2D within a procedurally-generated universe.”
