Been getting pretty good responses, so I touched up a few things added a saving feature and a small story so now the official first beta release is ready!
Made from a custom engine, Mario Masochism involves the hero we know and love in an impossibly cruel, very very unique platforming adventure.
The Beta includes the complete first world (a few hours of gameplay), including a boss, and an autosaving feature. Click the link below to download and try your luck against the game.
