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.
Ah man, this takes me back. Great job with the stylized Paper Mario style, it's simply amazing. I love the movement and energy in the pic. Lady Bow is definitely one of my favourite Paper Mario partners and she looks great in here! Keep up the great work!
I remember when this game first came out for the n64, I thought it was some kind of joke game nintendo made up. But after playing it, I was soooo glad I was mistaken. One of the best n64 classics ever!
Aaaah, this is amaaazing. ;u; <333 They all look so adorable in your style! (Especially Lady Bow, Parrakarry, Sushie, and Kooper, eeee. 8D ) I love how you coloured this, too, something about it gives the picture so much depth! : o Wonderful job!
Iīve never played Paper Mario, but this is plain impressive. Even though I barely know that characters MarioWiki helped me a lot
I really like how everyone ended up, and I absolutely love the coloring. I really like how you did a paper-style shading in the picture even if itīs done with your own style. I also love the theater-like background, and Lady Bow is absolutely adorable. The pic is enjoyable overall, well done. Your style is really pretty
