It's always disheartening to learn that one of your cherished icons has passed on, but it's even more disheartening to discover their death months after the fact.

Randy Solem, creator of Video Game Director's Cuts and the "Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom" Flash series, passed away at age 36 on March 16, 2012, due to a negative reaction to his heart medications. He was one of the great legends from the early days of Newgrounds as well as the guy who almost single-handedly popularized "sprite films," Flash movies that use old videogame graphics, typically from the 8- and 16-bit eras.

Randy was an influence to many young Flash animators -- I myself was inspired to submit a few high school and college presentations in the sprite film format. Back in December, I even wrote an Video Game Director's Cuts retrospective, which will hopefully serve as an adequate memorial of Randy's legacy in the absence of a proper, timely article.

Sorry for your loss but your angry reply doesn't help your cause at all. Dont want my money even though you asked for it? Thats fine dude, and frankly many causes of death tend to be because of an overdose of some kind, unfortunately rarely these days about age or natural cause. I'm not a piece of shit because I question someone asking money from me too many do these days.

So you know what fuck you. This happens to a lot of people so being a dick about it wont make you feel any better, and turns me away from giving a shit. Dont ask money from random people off the net just comes off tacky.

After watching Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom again after like 10 years, I was so hyped to see what Randy Solem was up to and what he mayhaps had in mind. Granted, I've never met the guy, but I can say with certainty that the dude is a legend from the early days of combining sprites with flash animation.

I'm so shocked to hear the man has passed. I absolutely loved his flash animations, they were always something to look forward to in my teen years. I've rewatched his movies so many times, I've honestly lost count. What an absolutely cool dude.

I hope his family is doing well in his absence. Damn. I hope his family knows the man was an absolute beast. Especially his daughter that hardly knew'em.

RIP Randy Solem. The man, the myth, the legend.
