Release Date: 1992
You may have absolutely no talent with art or anything resembling it. But
you can make something of intrest with Mario Paint. Using the long-defunct
Super NES Mouse, Mario Paint was the one of the most sublime games to ever
be released for the Super Nintendo.
You were given
everything you needed, with the purchase of the game. All you had to bring,
was your own sick and twisted ideas (or happy, puppy dog and butterfly ones
as well, depends on you). First, you drew up your backgrounds, ethier by the
provided stamp templates (of which there were several), or by hand using
Pencil, Brush, Marker, etc. When that was all done, you would begin to draw
your masterpiece. Most of mine starred Mario and the gang. You could ethier
make one giant picture, or a small animation (just like the kind we do now
with Paint Shop and Photoshop).
When all that was
finished, it'd be time to compose a soundtrack. Because as any Hollywood
producer will tell you, even a movie that tanks, can be somewhat salvaged
from associating good music that has nothing to do with the actual subject,
with the finished product. Be it actual music, or just a really screwed-up
cacophony of slammed together sounds, your masterpiece would now have some
tunes to back it up.
All done? Save it to the
battery back-up, or even better, tape your animations using a standard VCR.
With Mario Paint, there was really nothing you couldn't create. One of the
most-sought out games in SNES history, and also one of the hardest to come
by,( especially complete with box, mouse, mousepad, etc). If you happen to
own this game, consider yourself lucky. ;)
