General Commentary and Game Overview
In an era where Game Maker is the most popular choice for making Mario fangames, said games often aiming to provide polished experiences that feel just like the official Mario games, Wario vs. Windows is like a time capsule. It lets us take a look back at how fangames are like back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when Clickteam products are everybody's picks and fangames are usually quirky and absurd.
Supertoad2k worked on this game back in 2002, but eventually scrapped it for being as buggy as a summer picnic. You could've said that Wario vs. Windows has joined the realm of fangames that are never likely to see the light of day, but luckily, Supertoad2k finished and released the game at 2013, making a surprise appearance at MFGG! He didn't stay for very long, but it was an event that should never be forgotten!
Wario vs. Windows is a sequel to Yoshi vs. Windows, a classic fangame that is known by everybody around here (and if you somehow haven't heard about it until now, you should go check it out!). Yoshi vs. Windows brought Yoshi (of course) into a computer, while poking fun at various aspects of Microsoft. It also had quite a few follow-ups from fans of the game (a fangame of a fangame; that's something you don't see everyday, eh?).
I didn't play Yoshi vs. Windows until a couple months ago, when I played the remake that actually came after this game, but I've played Wario vs. Windows multiple times ever since maybe a year or two ago! It is very fun and it, along with Birdo vs. Macintosh, even inspired me do a follow-up of it, although it isn't really a Mario fangame and is instead more of a mod of a classic DOS game.
