Super Mario Bros. 3 In An Awesomely Creative Animation

When I was a little kid I loved anything that required cutting paper, gluing pieces, shaking on glitter, and coloring crafts with crayons and markers. I remember once drawing this cute picture of a lighthouse and then making a frame decorated by seashells to go with it. That beautiful picture hanged on the fridge for quite some time until it unfortunately disappeared. Putting that aside, I just love seeing anything that attempts such a cool direction of art — including when it’s applied to video games.

Let me introduce smartkid82504, a Youtube user that made a fantastic video clip of Super Mario Brothers 3 out of cardboard, paper, glue, and colored pencils. It would be kinda great to see this type of animation used for a real game, but I highly doubt that the expense (creatively and financially) would be worth it.

I still think my lighthouse drawing with the seashells is better though. (Well not that much better.)

  1. I think it could be simulated. Kinda like South Park was done. The hardest part for the developer would probably be finding a publisher to back it.

  2. what are you talking about?

  3. “It would be kinda great to see this type of animation used for a real game, but I highly doubt that the expense (creatively and financially) would be worth it.”

    After having so much fun using construction paper and stop-motion animation techniques for the pilot, the animators of South Park began using software to emulate the look of paper cut-outs.

    The the look shown above could be done fairly easily by any development house, I imagine. What I don’t know is if the game’s style would attract potential publishers.

  4. I didn’t think about South Park. Good point. And as to who could back it? Sony has been kinda good with experimental stuff. A game like Flower for example.
