Mario RPG: Rawest Forest

EDIT: To all billion of you upset about the volume of the character "voices" compared to the actual song, send your complaints to the original creator of the song. I simply animated to the MP3 I had, and couldn't alter it in any way. There's nothing I could've done to change it, sorry.

This was a little idea I came up with practically on a whim last Sunday. I finished the whole thing in a little under a week, and I think it turned out pretty well. Back in 2004, a dude by the name of Martin Hagwell, also known as "Märta" made a song out of the BGM from the "Forest Maze" level from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. Just recently, he remixed the song he created into a full-fledged professional sounding song, titled "Rawest Forest". After finding the song by chance last weekend thanks to a YouTube video, I took a listen, and got the idea for this movie. Mario RPG is one of my absolute favorite games of ALL time, and I know it inside and out. Those who know the game as well as I do will catch all of the references scattered throughout the animation. I also used this as a test to try out some new little tricks with animation. The good majority of the movie is frame-by-frame, and yes, I know the drawings're a little crappy (I don't have a tabley, unfortunately), but I enjoyed working on it throughout my last full week of High School (YAY), and it doubled as the final for my animation class, so that's even better! Anyway, hope you enjoy it for what it is. I certainly had a ball.



good video.
I played that game, but i never rly noticed that that forest was so hard.
I never got lost in it, and im not very good at games.

Very good

I need this gamn on the wiis virtual consal badly

People find this review helpful!

Love it.

Mario RPG was the Shiznit and this song was a great remix of an already catchy tune.

I do, however, agree that I couldn't make out what the characters were saying...

But anyways it was friggin awesome!



the song is fantastic

can i download a version where the lyrics are tuned a bit up and the music a bit down. it wasn't really balanced, which was a shame.

visuals cool.

keep it up.

Nice but BUT its about Luigi

Very nice the art could have been a little better though

Now about Luigi
Most people who played Super Mario RPG thought that Luigi wasn't in the game
On star hill there are some little stars with faces ONE of them has a wish from Luigi saying " I wish that I could be as great as my brother Mario " That is Luigi
Nintendo didn't forget about him he's just not a playable character

O and by the way I still play this on an ORIGANAL SUPER NINTENDO
I don't use a fucking emulator those are for gay people.
It's illegal to use an emulator even if you have the origanal game and system
