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!

Difficult to find the right word...

I'm blown away by this. The visuals are not only highly stylized, but very impressive as well. In addition the overall song is impressive as well. The combined elements psyguy, shady, Musical mike, and kirb leaves quite an impact. The most impressive part about this flash is how much thought was put into it. There were several great refrences to the game and I personally felt compelled to pick up the title again after watching the film. Great job. Certainly an impressive film for completing college. (Congratulations by the way )

When I find a song I like

I listen to it over and over again, till I get bored of it. But since getting the song as an MP3, putting onto my iPod, and listening to it every chance I get, I can't help but feel like I'll never get bored with it. It sticks with me and is very catchy. Waltz of the Forest deserves all ten stars.
