If it doesn't fit elsewhere, it should go here

I found out Mari0 through IGN's YouTube channel (it was the first video on my customized YouTube homepage)

I found it in early development (>1 year before it was released) while searching for a flash version of super mario bros.

I'm pretty sure Maurice started making a mario clone over at the love2d forums, but then he decided to make mari0. Then he and saso met, and ... this happened. I'm not sure if I'm right, though.

I heard they met at a hooker-shooting safari.
On topic, I heard about Mari0 from these guys: http://insanedifficulty.com/

I was searching mario fan games. And got bored. Then I played Portal 1 and 2 (the flash version). And got bored too. So I though about mixing them together, and found it here. I actually found it almost a long time ago, but then I saw they were still making it, so I started doing other stuff, and never found it again, until that time.

I found Mari0 through Not Tetris 2. I don't remember how I found about Not Tetris 2, but I enjoyed that game. Somehow, it was deleted from my laptop, so I had to redownload it. Google led me to the Stabyourself.net to redownload, and I decided to look around the site while downloading Not Tetris 2 again. And the development of Mari0 is what I saw, and I liked what I saw. So I decided to keep the website bookmarked to follow the progression of the game.

I ran into Not Tetris 2 when I was on Google searching for images of "Realistic Tetris gif", then came across a person saying that it's an actual game. Then when I found Not Tetris 2, I found something called "Mari0" about 2 months before the completion of the game.

A friend of mine found Mari0 from stumbleupon or whatever about three-quarters of the way through its development. I saw it and came to see on my own computer, and followed it until it came out. She didn't stick around with it for too long.
Ironic, isn't it?

gizmodo posted one of the videos (maybe test 3) on facebook around august 2011 and it blew my pants off so I started being interested in stabyourself (In spent the following 4/5 months getting all excited each time my rss reader had an update, hoping it was for mari0)

It's only been a few months, but I don't remember AT ALL.

I think I was bored as hell and looked up a Mario clone or something.

I watched the video "How Mario should have ended" and in the comments I saw:
"And so Mari0 was born"

Then I looked it up and played it.

I was watching some video on YouTube before mari0 was out (I think it was by a user called dorkly and it was called Mario with a portal gun) and so I just got really bored and searched: "Mario Portal". Mari0 came up, I liked what I saw, I think it was when the 3rd video of it was out so I subscribed and waited for it to come out. The saturday it came out and I played it was probably the best day of my life.
