Following on from that, the developers at ASMB Games say that Nintendo had the game blocked. The indie devs also said that they didn't want to give up without a fight.
After receiving a demand to take down the game, a so-called DMCA takedown notice (based on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the United States), the developer made some small tweaks to the game.
By removing Mario they also removed Nintendo's basis for the claim, and the result is a game called DMCA's Sky. Here's their own take on the matter:
"No Mario's Sky has received a DMCA notice. DMCA's sky is our replacement.
"Help Spaceman Finn search for Princess Mango in an infinite universe (that may contain no Mangoes).
"Featuring crazy Moombas, An Infinite Universe, Muscle, Amazing Physics and a Radical Space Ship; DMCA's Sky is the hackneyed remake-gone-mashup you've been craving."
The game can be downloaded from ASMB Games, and it can be played on Windows, Mac, and Linux, but not a Wii U, just in case you were wondering.
