No Mario’s Sky Has Been Taken Down By Copyright Claim But Has Relaunched

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.”

    1. That’s the changed description, after they relaunched the game under a different name.
      It’s all clearly stated in the article, actually.

  1. If they just would have gotten Nintendo’s approval, the game could still be out. Not only that, but they could have even been allowed to put the game on the Eshop, and charge money for it. Nintendo is very supportive of Indy games and with a few tweaks to the name and character this game could have made the creators some money. Some people’s kids, I swear.

  2. Still baffles me why they used Mario in the first place if they planned on releasing it to the public. Just use your own characters. Nintendo’s properties/characters are not public domain. My lord. It’s getting old hearing about all of these fan-games being taken down.

      1. I specifically said if they planned on releasing it to the public. Which they did.

        If it would have just been a video showcasing their parody game, that would have been fine. But releasing it is where they goofed.

  3. Thank you so considerably regarding giving me personally an update on this theme on your web page. Please realize that if a new post becomes available or if any modifications occur to the current publication, I would be considering reading a great deal a lot more and focusing on how to make good usage of those approaches you reveal. Thanks for your efforts and consideration of other individuals by making this web site available.
