What if you mixed Super Mario Brothers with a war movie? The two things don’t sound like they’d work together, but I think that’s exactly why Mario Warfare is interesting. The web series from Beat Down Boogie hits just the right tone. There’s humor, action, torture, and it all takes place against an intriguing backdrop. Their description:
Bowser’s airships rain destruction on the Mushroom Kingdom. The King is missing, presumed dead. The Princess is on the run. A couple plumbers answer the call of duty and sign up to fight. Now Mario, Luigi (and a team of old school video game characters) are thrown into the gritty new world of first person shooters like COD and Battlefield.
The production quality is top notch, too! I’m impressed with the sets and costumes. It looks more “real” than most web series I’ve checked out.
Watch parts one and two after the break.
