Game Designer Quits Job With Custom 'Mario' Game as Resignation Letter

Australian Developer Quits Job with Videogame

Ever feel like burning some bridges when you quit a job? Shredding important documents or yelling at your former manager? No? How about jumping on a power mushroom and groping a princess? If that's more up your alley, you're not alone; a developer named Mr. Jarrad decided to quit his job at game developer 2K Australia by creating a game featuring just those sorts of antics, we learned from Joystiq.

His game (play it here), titled 'A Message for 2K Australia,' sports a few short levels featuring Nintendo's Mario. In them, you run, jump, and collect items, each collection displaying the message "I QUIT" in big letters across the screen. It's a bit brash, and, while it does go on to say that the team at 2K is excellent, we can't help but wonder just how this was received by Jarrad's now-former employer. We're also curious to know what Nintendo's legal department thinks of the thing. [From:, Via: Joystiq]
