SMBZ Officially Cancelled - A.J. Nitro - 03-28-2012 03:58 AM
Alvin Explains it all here: http://alvin-earthworm.deviantart.com/journal/I-m-sorry-292397725
He did post the first scene here, however: http://alvin-earthworm.deviantart.com/art/SMBZ-ep-9-Scene-1-who-saves-Mario-292622644
That's such a shame. I was looked forward to seeing how the rest of the series would go.

I thought that maybe SMBZ stood for Super Mario Ball Z before I read that first link. Pretty close, though.

The only thing that kind of disappointed me is that he didn't consider using a different style of animation before he decided to cancel it.
I mean he said that he got tired of using sprite animation so I feel like he could have considered learning how to animate on flash to put a new twist on things. Still it's sad to see the series go.

WHAT?! Crap... well, at least Luigi was awesome.
RE: SMBZ Officially Cancelled - puggsoy - 03-28-2012 08:40 PM
Luigi is always awesome.

I'm sorry to say this, but the way he quits is weak in my eyes.
Not that I cared much for the series (because of the long waits for starters). It really bugs me that people just cut the project halfway. The least he could have done is wrap the series up in a final episode.
You simply cannot have an attitude like that when you're doing this for real.
I'm not trying to come off as a raging fanboy, because I'm not. It's just that 'lack of motivation' is a lazy reason for leaving a project unfinished.
I lacked motivation several times to work on a game project at Basegames several times, mostly because of the radical changes the client demanded that we didn't agree on, but because it was for a paying customer, I soldiered on, even knowing I wasn't getting paid because this was for our sister company, the one that made the Neko website.
Not getting paid for something I should get paid for is a damn good reason for lack of motivation.
So in conclusion, I don't care if the project doesn't furfill your big, ambitious promises, but please have the decency to wrap it up.

Oh good, now I can look forward to more of his furry porn art.

What a world we live in nyao.. I'd say good riddance, at least, I can concetrate on other things, heh. How quickly he became a furry, the world may never know.

Yeah, that's all he does now and then bitches when people don't like it. No shit. That's not why he had fans. He had fans because of Mario and Sonic. We don't all want to see humanoid cats grabbing their tits.

Thought this was a joke.

While Mario and Sonic were already a "must see" on their own as seperate flash films, this flash had a story to tell, rather than a constant furfight between prostitute vulpins with minimal to no character development at all, even IF the story was borrowed from the Android Saga portion of Dragon Ball Z.

I agree 110% with NICK. Maybe he should've found more people to help him with it, then he wouldn't burn himself out and quit.

Its a good thing i gave up on the series ages ago. It was enjoyable, but took forever for the next one, only to be cancelled yesterday.
Reading that he wants to continue THAT shit is only gonna make fans hate him more.
RE: SMBZ Officially Cancelled - Sol - 03-29-2012 12:47 AM
how dare he go off to make furry artwork and betray the infinitely more fulfilling and noble pursuit of making fan videos of game character sprites fighting each other
the charlatan, what does he know of the arts?! we MADE him. what would he be if we hadn't watched his free fan animations? NOTHING. he's NOTHING
if he won't play ball, there are plenty of other WORTHWHILE things I could be watching at work instead of working, if he wants to stop entertaining me because it isn't "fun" to go do something that makes him happy then he can do it WITHOUT me, THANK you very MUCH.
RE: SMBZ Officially Cancelled - Rosencrantz - 03-29-2012 01:30 AM
Personally, I'd rather watch two sprites with clashing styles fighting each other instead of looking at fox tits, but that's just me
