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!

The best

I like both songs, the only difference between the two is that this one has a different type of style of music and lyrics, and also this one shows the improvement and progress into your animations. Everyone played their part and it was just awesome. =3

Dis I like.

This was a rather surprisingly good animation. I admit, I was rather leery at first of even giving it the time to watch; not because of the subject or anything, I'm actually a huge fan of SMRPG, it's one of my childhood favorites. More that your past animations have been less than stellar as of late. Basically the "Super Nintendo 64" animation followed by the "Brawl Funnies" thing kind of led me to believe that you were stagnating. But this? This I am glad I watched, it's quick, it's clever, it's well-animated, it's got great music, it sums up the game very well, and it's overall a very well-done piece. So, congratulations on restoring my faith in you, congratulations on making this wonderful piece, and congratulations on finishing college. I hope the terrible job economy right now doesn't affect you, I hope you've got something lined up, and I hope things go good for ya from here on out.
