If Super Mario Bros Had a Portal Gun

A little while ago, someone made a video playing on how Super Mario Bros. would be like if it had a portal gun. The video, as you can see, is very tongue-in-cheek:

But Stab Yourself is actually taking that concept and developing a game from it. Yes, it's still Mario, but he's sporting a Portal gun. Check it out:

From the developer's page:

* Yes, this is an actual game being developed -- it is not a mod of any existing one. It's coded with Löve (info at the bottom of the left menu) and will be released for free (so we don't get stabbed by lawyers)
* All the source code of the game will be available after release
* The game will have mappacks, which will be downloadable from ingame.
Users most likely won't be able to publish maps directly, but will be able to send them in and we'll add them for everyone to use.
* The primary maps will have a story and some portaly puzzles. What kind, well, we'll figure that out as we go
* Level editor will be embedded in the game so you can edit the level while you play
* Original SMB levels and Lost levels will be included
* Simultaneous Multiplayer
