There seems no end to the level of creativity exhibited by the Beat Saber modding community. Given that the launch of the popular VR rhythm game back in 2018, players have been having an area day making their very own custom beat maps set to a directory of unlicensed music. This consists of every little thing from a Fall Guys-inspired map that replaces the tinted blocks with bean individuals to a personalized track readied to the whole Shrek film.
Earlier this month, Virtual Reality and mixed reality material developer Mawntee upped the stake even further with a custom Beat Saber map inspired by Super Mario Bros. that transforms the game from VR rhythm slasher to Virtual Reality platformer.
In a video uploaded to YouTube, Mawntee shows off the carefully-crafted map in all its 8-bit splendor. Ready to the track “DADADADA (kidnun very mario mix)” by Wuki, the designer can be seen speeding through a neon-infused performance of a timeless 2D Mario program, jumping from pipeline to pipe as well as slicing through multiple Goomba’s along the road. TougeVR uses an alternate angle of the map, making use of blended reality capture to produce a timeless 2D perspective comparable to that of the initial video game. The outcome is a hilarious homage to classic 8-bit video gaming unlike anything you’ve seen yet in Beat Games’ immensely-popular Virtual Reality rhythm experience.
That being stated, there is some hoax being had in the history. Jumping, for example, occurs immediately as you make your method via the map. You can, nonetheless, damage the Goomba’s with your sabers as if striking basic note blocks.
Those thinking about attempting the map out for themselves will certainly need a duplicate of Beat Saber As numerous extra mods, including “Chroma” as well as “Noodle Extensions.” These attachments are available solely on COMPUTER Virtual Reality headsets; sorry Quest and also PSVR users. The custom map can be downloaded and install here.
