Secret of Mana Theater is a guilty pleasure of mine. So, I made a skunkworks guest comic of it in SVG. This demo extensively uses SMIL animation. I really appreciate the work the real author puts into it now. I chickened out of improving the mouth movements or having dialogue bubbles because hand coding them would have taken forever.
This was initially going to be demonstration of clipping and masking but it quickly got out of hand.
