Metroid: The Post-it VersionPosted: June 24, 2010 | Author: Doug | Filed under: Nintendo, Photography, Technology | 2 Comments »
Something I wanted to share, since I have been recently on a Nintendo nostalgia trip (with some Buddhism mixed-in). I work in a certain office in Seattle, and on a different floor, someone made this image out of post-it notes:
No joke. I was stunned when I saw it years ago before I moved to Ireland, and when I moved back, I was happy to see the picture was still there. I finally decided to take a photo and upload it, since no one seems to have done it already. For those not familiar, this is a very accurate representation of the original 8-bit Nintendo game Metroid. On the left is a “bird statue” holding a power-up while on the right is the main hero. Here’s another angle:
I was a true Nintendo kid, having grown up in the 80′s, and Metroid along with Final Fantasy One were two of the few games I owned and enjoyed countless hours with. So, seeing this mural made out of post-its decades later rekindled many fond memories.
Still, the mystery remains, who made it? I really don’t know. I may never know. But if the original creator is reading this, thank you. However, for all you Nintendo fans out there, enjoy, and I hope this photo inspires your own “office Nintendo art” as well.
