Later, around 2010, he made a game called Mario Builder. It was a game about making a Super Mario Advance 4-like game. Since Mario Builder was a fan game and TingThing didn't own the rights to use Mario elements in his game, Nintendo forced GameJolt to remove it alongside other games in 2014. In 2015 he revealed a new game: Platform Builder, a successor to Mario Builder
