Over 150 Facebook employees built 40 levels of the new Super Mario Maker game, which is set to be released to the public this September.
After building a level, the participants played them. Here, Mario runs around a Facebook logo surrounded by coins. Make it rain!
Judges Dan Morris from Facebook's Oculus team and AJ Glasser from its games partnerships team then went around the room and played every game.
Facebook didn't getting paid by Nintendo to do this. It was a "mutual love exercise" between Facebook and Nintendo, Glasser said.
A team named “Ship Love” won and the guy in the Mario costume got so excited he started fist pumping like he was back in the Jersey Shore.
Mario parties hard, but so would you if your day was spent slamming your head into boxes for prizes and dying repeatedly at the hands of merciless level bosses.
