Back in 2007, the last Flash animation I did as I was graduating High School and entering College was a music video based on "Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars" for the Super Nintendo, a game that I have over a decade of history with. Yoko Shimomura's music is a huge part of what's so amazing about this game, "Beware the Forest Mushrooms" (theme of the "Forest Maze" stage) being one of her most highly regarded compositions. DJ XBrav created a lyrical version of the song that took the internet by storm many years ago, evolving into a meme that fans of the game all know and love. Martin Hagwell later remixed this into the popular "Rawest Forest" song, which I later used as the song for the music video that has now received millions of views in the past several years.

Today, as the last Flash animation I'm doing as I graduate College and enter into the rest of my life: Myself, Blake "ShadyVox" Swift, Bryon "Psyguy" Beaubien and Musical Mike Patterson, have joined forces to bring you a new version of the popular Forest Maze composition from Super Mario RPG, paying tribute to both XBrav's and Marta's remixes as well as Yoko Shimomura's original piece. This animation was done over the course of two weeks, as opposed to the original music video that was finished in one week. I crammed in as many geeky references in there as I possibly could to show my appreciation for this amazing game and I hope everyone who's ever played Super Mario RPG will get a big smile in remembering all the fun stuff from Mario and company's adventures. Big thanks as well to my creative partners that helped in making this song and everyone who supported me during the animation process.

Follow Geno's route there!

amazing! nothing could top this! It's true about the miserable part as well. it definatley deserved its daily feature and weekly 2nd place.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Addicted, just like Rawest Forest. But this is better. Mario RPG is one of best games. I put it in 2nd place.

Honestly I catch myself watching this at least once every week. I agree about some of the rather rude comments about the gradients, but it's still appealing none the less. Animations were fantastic, and I enjoyed the music. I don't think another voice could make this video work, it fit. It's nothing amazing, sure, but it works here. Fantastic work, a great improvement over Rawest Forest.

And now. a quote from Nin10d0h! Ahem!
"What the... where's the-WHERE'S THE F*CKIN' PAUSE BUTTON?" But in all honesty, this is brilliant and I am so glad to finally review this... Then again, does it even NEED a review? It's brilliant enough already.
