The Making of Super Mario Bros. 3



Four scanned pages of an old Nintendo Power magazine describing how Super Mario Bros. 3 was made has been put up on the Internet. It's pretty interesting stuff, but it's also fairly basic. Perhaps back then information about how games were made wasn't very prevalent, but now with the coming of the Internet it's fairly common to learn about the process behind the making of games.

I did find it a little charming when the creators were talking about how hard it was to track the motion of falling block pieces.
