We have started to get impressive results from Nintendo’s game creation kit, Game Builder Garage.
What should you do when the copyright holders of your favorite video game series seem to have little interest in making new games in the franchise? You can write a petition, or make as much noise as possible and ask the media to ask about it in an interview… But another answer might be, well, build one yourself.This is the case for a player who used Nintendo’s new Game Builder Garage to build a F-zero prototype.
Twitter user ZeldaBoi1 posted a prototype video, which is basically a fully-fledged 3D F-Zero track with the original SNES style, some of which were carefully rebuilt using Game Builder Garage’s clever toolset. See it running in the embed:

This is not easy to do, but it also proves the strength provided by Game Builder Garage. Sadly, there are restrictions. For example, it seems that split-screen mode is impossible because Game Builder Garage only allows one camera per game. Multiplayer gaming experiences can be built, but they must essentially be on the same screen.
However, the creation of F-Zero is a solid proof of concept and can be easily built with other elements in the future to provide a more mature single-player racing experience.
The F-Zero demo is actually a continuation of some similar works by the same user-they also appropriately reproduce the appearance of Mario Kart from the SNES era In a playable demo
Of course, Nintendo’s latest creative game is not just used by one person—in fact, a careful reading of the Twitter hashtag will reveal that the creator is making something truly impressive. A Japanese user even reproduced tengu in the game.

All of this appeared on a booming hashtag #GameBuilderGarage on Twitter-this is what they have to do, because the game does not have its own sharing feature, which seems like a huge missed opportunity. You can use Game Builder Garage internal links and download codes embedded in tweets to download these things-no matter what you do, these things are pretty cool. Game Builder Garage may not be as complicated as Media Molecule’s Dreams on PlayStation, but it still inspires incredible creativity-and we are only in the first week.
