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!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Professionally well done and an improvement....

Not that that the original song and animation weren't great, but the original strong had some strange lyrics (geno rap mostly) and while the animation was good it didn't feel as distinguished as this one. The original felt like you were just for some laughs and this one felt like you were doing it because this game just deserved something spectacular.

The graphics are fairly good. All of the main characters are well animated in the places they appear. Everything follows the Mario theme, but is unique enough to differentiate between it. A bit more work could have been put into animating certain areas of the animation such as backgrounds and lesser characters. More details could have improved it.

The audio is good. All of the voice acting was terrific. The rhythm of the music matched the singing and animation. The animation kept up with the audio which meant the animation was fairly past-paced, but it was not too fast as to lose the viewer.
