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!

Yay its by Kirbopher!

I saw this on the frontpage and I was like...this is gonna be by Kirbopher, isn't it? And I saw it and I was like, YES! WIN! Also, I saw this and now im playing an ROM of Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars! I hated that level, Geno was too fast for me at the time, but I got him now! I loved the flash btw, and it just-so-happened that I played this EXACTLY when I entered the forest, so it played with it! EPIC WIN! Thanks for the awesome flash and wonderful experience of randomnicity!

A simply great video

The remix to the music is nice and the only possible downside to this move is that some of the images while appears in SMRPG, it has little to do with the infamous forest. Still you quickly stop caring with the amazing animation and song. It just came out a beautiful remix and reminder to the fans of the series why the game was so awesome.

Catchy tune, great animation- AWESOME VID!

Kirbopher has done it yet again with his talented flash work and great knowledge of Nintendo games. He has taken one of the most obscure, yet still extremely addicting Mario games- and made a kick-ass music video to make those of us who have never played th game realize what we're missing. If only I had a credit card or something to buy the game off of the Wii Store.

Why not a 10 you may ask? Well, I guess the animation isn't 100% perfect.... don't get me wrong, it is remarkable and very detailed. It's just that there is still a bit of room for slight improvement here and there.

Overall, another awesome Kirbopher video, and a song I may want to download onto my iPod.
