    Interview With Mike Mika- Why I Hacked Donkey Kong for my Daughter:

    Finally, one day after work, she asked to play Donkey Kong, only this time she raised a pretty innocent and simple question: How can I play as the girl? I want to save Mario!

    It made sense. We had just played Super Mario Bros. 2 on the NES a few days before, and she became obsessed with playing as Princess Toadstool. So to go back to Donkey Kong, I can see how natural it seemed to ask the question. I explained to her that Donkey Kong, while similar, is not the same game. On this occasion, I really could tell that she was disappointed. She really liked Donkey Kong, and really liked playing as Princess Toadstool. We left it at that and moved on.

    But that question! It kept nagging at me. Kids ask parents all the time for things that just aren’t possible. But this time, this was different. I’m a game developer by day. I could do this. .....

    ..... I just wanted to keep that little grin lit up on my daughter’s face every time we sit down to play games together.

    Think it is good to get some visibility. I searched around on TGIS and didn't see it represented, yet.
    When folks see it on this pcb they have to try it, seems to resonate with culture right now?
    Bet it would go over great in Dave n Busters type restaurants if Nintendo would release and official version.
    Are you inspired to find the joy in gaming?
