I thought I'd repost this video, it was our "teaser trailer" that we put out early last year, before we actually even started development...
The video was made by a friend of mine James. There wasn't much direction on my part]. I said, "something like those early 90s MTV bumpers or early video game commercials that made no sense but looked awesome" and he just went nuts with it.
I'm posting this video again because I don't think many saw it and also because James is currently working on another that he claims will be way more nuts then the 1st
SMB is has a very early 90s vibe to it, from the humor to the retro throw backs and even the name. Everything about SMB screams that era, pulling a lot from Ren and Stimpy, Liquid Television, Beavis and Butthead and the Spike and Mike Sick and Twisted festival of animation. 91-94 were vital years for me when it came to the impact they would make on my creative career and I'm trying my best to recapture the unbridled and totally bizarre artistic freedom of that time.
I'm planning a big post all about the music of Meat Boy next week but till then, back to the E3 crunch!
