paper mario is fucking terrifying to me. imagine someone tells you that you can turn a new way and suddenly you can perceive an additional dimension of space. all of mario's dialogue should be screaming.

The funniest part of that game to me is that luigi canonically goes to hell when he dies.

@HTHR @melt hey what the fuck you made me remember flatland that book was fucked up

@melt there's a reason that all his overworld powers in TTYD come from 'curses'


@melt remember that time a clown came out of nowhere and straight up murdered mario and he went to hell

@melt and then you have to escort a child from their mom's house to their dad's house. except mom is the queen of the underworld and dad is, like. an archangel or whatever.

@Sylvhem @melt Kinda... Gomez still stays in 2D, you just switch which two of the three dimensions he's in. Mario goes full 3D.

@melt Really, he should be screaming about the loss of the third dimension more of the time... He had one in PM and PM:TTYD and only lost it in Super.
Seriously, imagine waking up one day and finding the entire world turned 2D, and nobody else finds it strange in the slightest

@melt in his defense, this was immediately after he was mind-controlled into being a villain. that probably stains your soul a little.

mario, meanwhile, has no such excuse, and got into hell entirely on his own merits.
