I Dream In Retro

It's a year old but several people have convinced me to upload this to NG. This was my first big undertaking in flash animation. It's based heavily on a dream I had that was caused by a long day of playing NES, SNES, and Genesis. A lot of the animation is true to the dream with a few changes to keep it interesting.

In the dream I was moving through different levels from many games. In each level the music was wrong and my sprite (while fitting the bit style) didn't quite work with the game. During the dream I was abusing a cheat ability to use different weapons from pretty much any game (of the same bit type) I wanted at any time. The game itself behaved as it should, with my actions being the only aberration. So basically a retro video game mashup and tribute.

I wanted it to look as "real" as possible, as if it was actually happening in the games. Everything looks, animates, behaves and moves as close to the real thing as I could manage. Thanks go out to my friends and a HUGE thanks to my girlfriend for putting up with me during the creation of this soul crusher. I love you.

Dedicated to anyone who has ever loved video games.

Oh yeah. Sorry I didn't jump through the doors, I just didn't think of it while animating...

Not sure why anyone would want to watch a lower quality version but it's on my youtube page as well. http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=ERzNf9PzvEA


Why is this UJ?!

This was Awesome. It had nice animation, and some good flashbakcs for me ;). I liked how you merged SMB3 with MegaMan and used SMW final boss music. Then, used mario paint ending :D. Amazing Job!
