It's a Paper World by Versiris It's a Paper World by Versiris
I think this is my first piece of Paper Mario fan art. Surprisingly, since it's one of my all-time favorites! :0

Will be available as a print for Anime North 2011.

That game was way ahead of its time.

I'd say that Paper mario for the Nintendo 64 was way ahead of its time.

Well, what I mean is that even though at the time, you had Sega with the Dreamcast , Sony with the original Playstation,and Square having Final Fantasy. Nintendo was able make roleplaying game that no one had ever seen before, with the concept of the characters appearing as though they've been drawn on paper. So techniquely the turned based system style of game play wasn't ahead of its time,but the concept of the characters being made out of paper was.

I don't agree that an art direction like this makes a game ahead of it's time. That implies it uses advanced techniques that didn't look like it was possible at the time. Paper cutouts aren't a new thing and certainly nobody else used this afterwards. It was more a fun gimmick.

Well that is true. I guess the art direction was what really made it seem revolutionary, even though the use of paper cut outs wasn't entirely new. However, to an extent the concept gave the game a more 3 demensional look for it's time and even if the concept of Mario being on paper was just a fun gimmick, it's still a must play.
