Super Mario Nothing is kind of a ROM hack of Super Mario Bros. for the NES. Except the hack is to delete everything while making sure the game still runs. There are two versions available. The (D) version (for Deleted) is a Super Mario Bros. ROM where all the data has been removed. The (Z) version (for Zeroed) is a Super Mario Bros. ROM where all the data has been zeroed out. Why? Because I needed an easy project, give me a break. Also I think it’s a way to think about destruction as creation, the copyright status of erased data, the relationships between process and outcome, and stuff like that.

Super Mario Nothing was created using VS Code to edit the hex code in a ROM of Super Mario Bros.. I referred to the wiki for an explanation of the header information in NES ROMs.

Would I like to make an actual cartridge version of this game? Yes I would.
