SMBZ 14th anniversary!

Posted by Alvin-Earthworm - 1 month ago


Hard to believe it's been 14 years since I released the first episode on Newgrounds. I am honestly surprised my little fan series has had such a lasting impact in the spriting and animation communities. It's been quite the rollercoaster. A lot of ups and downs (mostly downs) but I am always grateful to everyone who has continued to follow and support me over the years.


I was aiming to release episode 2 of the reboot today, but I am not even close to finishing it yet. Be sure to follow me on Twitter for updates on my progress. Hopefully I won't keep you guys waiting for too much longer. Thanks again and I hope you stay tuned for the next exciting installment of Super Mario Bros. Z!

Can’t wait, and happy 14th anniversary!! Hard to believe it’s been that long. Hope you’re doing alright!

Happy 14th anniversary, SMBZ!

YAY!

It really has been that long, hasn't it? That puts me back in high school. Time really does seem to speed up as you age, doesn't it?

May many more anniversaries be celebrated!

I'll predict the futue.

Take as much time as you need. We're happy to hear from you again and are excited for what you got in store.

14 years of awesome animations! Dude, I can't wait to see what you will bless us with for the anniversary!

Man, 14 years is a long time. Glad to see you again. Keep it up!

Its been a wild ride, hope you're doing better now dude.

Ah that's hot. That's hot.

Just hearing you say that you're working on it has me geeking out in anticipation.

God, has it really been 16 years? I feel so old all of a sudden.

Now all we need is a reboot of Bowser's Kingdom

Happy Anniversary ^^

You wanna know something kinda ironic? Super Mario Bros Z is as revolutionary in the sprite animation as Dragon Ball to manga and anime, You have become the Akira Toriyama of Newgrounds, and the internet in general... And hey, it's not like Dragon Ball didn't have long periods of no content for a while, so don't feel guilty about not putting out an episode for a while, I just want you to be happy, and be proud of the masterpiece you've made, Happy 14th anniversary, and keep up the good work, Mark....

14 years...….making me feel old, man. :)

Just came from randomly jumping back into episodes 5-8 of the OG series, randomly noticing for the first time that the secret to this series' success is that you are an amazing writer, and randomly wishing the reboot was still a thing. Hallelujah, the show goes on. You are the effing GOAT, Alvin, we're all rooting for you.

Also, Jesus H. Christ, I really want to know what happens after that Baselisx fight and where Shadow went! XD

Alvin I just had my kid watch SMB-Z rebooted for the first time and he loved it, we plan to watch back through the series soon. I've been following you since close to the beginning and I still look back fondly at this as one of my favorite flash series of all times. Thanks so much for the content you gave us back then and today.

I hope you've been well man. :)

Love you man I hope everything has been going good for you I almost can't believe its been 14 years! Where's the time gone am I right?
