That was very well done. It feels like a real SMB story of sorts. Great job.
I like that. Good Job
The scene from The Godfather was a nice touch too, I didn't expect that.
You rarely see tragic sprite animations... and they often suck. Not this one, however. Great use of the 8-bit sprites, and I like the flashback plot device, even if it is a bit cliche.
It must have taken some effort to make the file size so huge, though. Dial-uppers have probably been chewing at your vote score because of this, mainly by judging your entire movie by the preloader (which sucks, I'm afraid). Excellent work overall, though. More! More!
wow. that was great. you gotta finish this soon.
