Mario Factory was an internal software/game development program produced by Nintendo and Intelligent Systems circa 1994, which made use of the "Game Processor" hardware (used by students of HAL College of Technology & Design), as well as a special Game Pak known as the Game Processor RAM Cassette to edit the games. Mario Factory was designed to create games for use on a Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom.[1]

Satoshi Yamato, Satoshi Nishiumi, Toshiaki Suzuki, Toshiyuki Nakamura, Makoto Kimizuka take credit as inventors of the Game Processor.[2]

The concept of Mario Factory is similar to Nintendo's consumer software creation tools in video games, spanning from early games such as Family BASIC to later games such as Game Builder Garage.
