The Story of Super Mario
Miyamoto is one of the most famous people in the world in game design. It is also described as the father of modern video games. In 1980, he started working as a designer in Nintendo. After his success with the Donkey Kong game, the Mario character he created was used as the mascot of Nintendo.
Shigeru Miyamoto; He liked drawing, researching, traveling and reading comics. He could not have guessed that what he thought at a young age would lead him when he grew up and would work in a large firm like Nintendo, but his imagination was too broad. Born in Sonebe / Japan on November 16, 1952, Miyamoto’s place was a place far away from a concrete city architecture, giving peace and arousing curiosity. So he never lost his willingness to research and made hours of walks as a child. He even once discovered a cave he had never seen before, and then he wanted to go in with a flashlight and examine his structure, and he did it.
Miyamoto used his imagination a lot, devoting time to it. Miyamoto said that he remembered the things he did as a childhood as exciting experiences and entered the Kanazawa Munici Skills and Crafts University in 1970. He was a dreamer. After graduating from school, he went to his father and informed him that he wanted to meet Hiroshi Yamauchi. Yamauchi was an old friend of his father, and he was the president of Nintendo at the time. The interview was accepted and then the first work experience began. Miyamoto started working in Nintendo’s designer staff in 1977. Nintendo’s financial situation was getting worse. For Miyamoto, this was a turning point.
Nintendo’s financial situation has deteriorated and the last game did not get as much attention as expected, making things even more difficult. Miyamoto was asked to prepare a new game, but this game would be completely the work of his imagination. In this study, Miyamoto, who returned to his childhood, remembered many of his experiences when he was young and started to pour some of them on paper.
The Story of Donkey Kong
This new game would be just like this: A huge gorilla will kidnap a beautiful girl and take it to the top. As the girl’s girlfriend, we would act to save her. The character we’re going to check is called Jumpman, and he’s a carpenter. A character wearing a fat, pos mustache and a jumpsuit. The name of the huge gorilla is Donkey Kong. Both his story and the “Kong” part called Donkey Kong brought to mind the Universal Pictures’ King Kong. For this reason, even filing a lawsuit against Nintendo came up. Shigeru Miyamoto’s career was perhaps about to end before he started in the order he needed most. Fortunately, it didn’t. There was no obstacle to Donkey Kong, as there was no violation of copyright. Miyamoto completed Donkey Kong in 81, and this game saved Nintendo’s life. Donkey Kong made the fastest sales ever seen in the Arcade industry, surpassing 65,000.
This success meant that the name Donkey Kong continued, but it was also a sign that Jumpman should also take different adventures. In 85, “Mario Bros” was launched. Many changes were made to this game. Supporting from the popularity of Pacman, Jumpman name has been replaced by Mario. Our character is jumping into blocks, entering through pipes; he was trying to jump and overwhelm the enemies like mushrooms and turtles. When we got 100 gold, we were getting a right. Moreover, the job was changed. This character was no longer a carpenter, but a plumber. From the winds of change, the character’s clothes also got their share. Our character, who wore a red shirt and a blue jumpsuit in Donkey Kong, changed his outfit as a red jumpsuit and a brown shirt in the next game. Super Mario Bros. On the other hand, red t-shirts and blue overalls came and these standard clothes did not change again.
Preparing Super Mario
Mario is an American-born American plumber who migrated to Mushroom Kingdom in New York, USA. While preparing this game, Miyamoto received help from many childhood experiences, dreams and books he read. Miyamoto’s thoughts in his childhood were returning to him as invaluable opportunities for the future. For example, the underground platforms in Mario games were inspired by the cave, which the famous producer found in Sonebe during his childhood and then researched inside with a flashlight. He also benefited from the environments he constantly visited in other departments. Hidden items placed in some blocks are again based on childhood experiences. Mario’s growth by eating mushrooms can be explained by Alice in Wonderland, one of the books he read. Shigeru Miyamoto Mario is able to do incredible physical movements. It’s like jumping too high, but he’s not a super person. It can drown in water or die from the ground. “Shigeru Miyamoto”
