Reddit is great for so many things with so many cool subreddits. An unassumingly awesome subreddit is MapPorn, which is exactly where we found an incredible map of Europe in the style of Super Mario World, and it is glorious!
The creator of this nostalgic and detailed map periodic lunchbox posted the map saying "Well, it's finally done. My map of Europe, inspired by Super Mario World! It took a couple of months, had to take some breaks because some of the work was incredibly tedious. I'm really happy with the results. After making a map of Iceland and The Netherlands I couldn't decide which country I wanted to do next, so I did them all."
It looks like a massive undertaking, and they said that while they don't know exactly how long it took about a hundred hours went into creating it. There is even a time lapse video of the entire process. We weren't the only ones impressed with the pixelated map, user offensive_noises commented saying "Impressive! So detailed. You should get this printed, cause I surely think people want to hang this in their room." Yes, we are those people. Another user darwinpatrick said "This is mesmerizing! Incredible work. I agree with the other commenter; people would 100% buy this."
We have to agree, we are the people who would buy this and hang it on our wall. What do you think of the Super Mario World Inspired Map? Would you hang it on your wall?
