Open source Mario port to 030/060 Falcon?

This looks really good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jya5He7KFsE

I know nothing about programming, just asking the question... it says it's SDL, and from my knowledge there have been other SDL games ported over.
Falcon ct63e 060 - 256mb ram - phantom bus and dsp accel // Atari TT - Thunder and Storm IDE 64mb ram - Lightning VME - USB LAN - Ati Mach64 2mb

It uses SDL2 (which hasn't been ported to Atari yet) so you couldn't just take & recompile it. Also, SDL_Mixer routines would need to be adapted to Falcon hardware (IIRC, SDL_Mixer tends to be rather slow).

Apart from that it could be an easy ride, yes.
