EDIT: looks like this got popular again :) For those of you who are not pleased with the lack of stop/start/volume control on this there is a YouTube version. <[link]>



Thank you all for commenting and everything! I'd love to hit you all back but there are HUNDREDS of awesome comments here and I just wont be able to keep up. Just know I really appreciate all your comments! :D

Note: You will need flash 9 or higher to view this. I also put a video of this on youtube. The quality isn't nearly as good but I figured, why not. [link]

This is my first big flash animation. It's based heavily on a dream I had that was caused by a long day of playing NES, SNES, and Genesis. A lot of the animation is true to the dream with a few changes to keep it interesting.

In the dream I was moving through different levels from many games. In each level the music was wrong and my sprite (while fitting the bit style) didn't quite work with the game. During the dream I was abusing a cheat ability to use different weapons from pretty much any game (of the same bit type) I wanted at any time. The game itself behaved as it should, with my actions being the only aberration.

I wanted it to look as "real" as possible, as if it was actually happening in the games. Everything looks, animates, behaves and moves as close to the real thing as I could manage. Because of this it might not be as exciting and action packed as the flood of DBZ style sprite animations out there.

Big thanks to the guy who made the deviant art preloader. Mine all sucked. Thanks also to my friends and the crew on the ElysianShadows forums for the input.

And HUGE thanks to my girlfriend for putting up with me during the creation of this animation. I love you.

Dedicated to anyone who has ever loved video games.

The live action stuff? Just a camera on a tripod. Everything else I animated in flash.

I remember when I first saw this, I was on my beginning account, and man was I amazed at the amount of time you put into this animation. When I had moved to my new account in 2010, I lost all my favorites and was pretty sad I forgot the name of this animation. For over 6 years I have been searching everywhere on DA for this, and now I finally find it. Funny thing is was that there were a couple of video game references I didn't get when I first saw this in 2009, and here I am finally recognizing them. XD

I cannot remember if I said this already on my old account when I saw this, but well done on this animation. Watching this really does bring back good memories. :p

That was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I admire your homage to many of the 8-bit and 16-bit eras' greatest classics, the mashups of various sound effects and music from other games, and a constant, smooth animation for a very long video.

I think that you could make an amazing flash game akin to Abobo's Big Adventure solely based on the content in this video. I make 8-bit sprite work myself, but you definitely are of another caliber over my skills! Thank you for such an awesome masterpiece, fellow retro-gaming connoisseur! :D (Big Grin)

I'm a big fan of retro games, and also was doing a 16-bit version of a 2012 game, but just gave up on 60%.
You're doing a great job!! (y)
