Now that the vaccine for coronavirus has started rolling out globally, there is a ray of hope, however, the year should stand in our memory as one to remember and learn from. For the very same reason, an indie game developer Max Garkavyy has developed a web game similar to Mario, called 2020 Game.

2020 Game: What is in it for the future?
Garkavyy stated that it took him over six months to develop the game during the global lockdown. At the end, he leaves a possible sequel of the game to be released in the future. The teaser shows 2021 with zombies, alien ships, dinosaurs and more.
At the end of the game, due to Garkavyy being an indie developer, there’s a donate link to help him further develop more such interesting short games. The donation is not mandatory and you can leave the game immediately after it ends if you do not wish to donate.
