Inspired: Mario Paint

Gentle Reader,

Mario Paint
Publisher:  Nintendo
System:  Super Nintendo Entertainment System
USA Release:  1992

One of the top comments on this video said it best:  "Nintendo preparing a genration for Photoshop."

I must have spent huuuuuundreds of hours with Mario Paint when I was about 12 years old.  It's probably a big part of the reason why I am still obsessed with game design.  The color palette was pretty limited, but even so, it was incredibly flexible compared to similar offerings like Art Alive.  It was also my first experience ever with a mouse.  I'm guessing this was so for many thousands of people my age.

Thank you, Nintendo!  Mario Paint was one of your finest hours!

Ever Yours,
