We flew too close to the sun boys! A big video game company who i will keep nameless obviously didn’t read my “be cool” note in dreams
no worries though have a back up plan. But for now Mario projects in dreams are on hold until i put said plan into effect pic.twitter.com/ifGDM0jFZ3
PieceOfCraft also stated that they can no longer edit the original creation as the Super Mario Character is taken down by Sony due to the complaint issued by Nintendo. Dreams players will no longer be able to find or use it in the game and it’s like a slap on the wrist, PieceOfCraft stated.
Even after all this happened, it didn’t really surprised me, the reason is Nintendo’s previous record. Nintendo is known for taking down the use of unofficial Nintendo’s IP-related use. But, this incident highlighted some serious problems for both creator and players of Dreams game. As most of the material used in this game is not owned by creator or Sony and instead most of the material is the intellectual property of the rival companies of Sony.
However, at the time of writing this article we noticed something. Even after taking down the Super Mario character. All the Dreams creations that are based on PiecesOfCraft’s Super Mario character are still live. We found Super Mario 64 HD which was created by Yoru Tamashi was live and with 11,400 plays.
As per the tweet below, it seems that PiecesOfCraft have a plan B for this situation. Let’s see what comes next.
That’s sucks man :/ I’m sorry
