“First Person Goomba” is an animation made for the Machinima Interactive Film Festival by animator Filipe Costa. While it can seem pretty deep, I’m sure it’s meant to be taken in a light hearted fashion. Don’t worry kids, when you restart a level all those goomba’s are back again. The film festival even allows you to vote for your favourite at MachinimaInteractiveFilmFestival.com (the animation sections seem to be coming soon).
I wish I’d have known about this earlier since I would have liked to participate. Filipe’s animation shows what my friend Jason Nason has been saying for a long time, it’s a shame we don’t have more animation that looks like the in game 3D content that comes with Nintendo titles. If they made a series like this, I’d definitely watch it.
