"Lost Mangroves" is the 25th video game painting by Mal on MalMakes and is the 2nd painting based on the Donkey Kong Country series.
Mal was inspired to paint Tropical Freeze, because she found the game fun and very innovative. She particularly liked the loading screens, which had beautiful color choices that fit each world in the game. She mentioned that she might paint more of the loading screens if her audience was interested in seeing more.
Mal has done a full playthrough of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze with Stephen on StephenPlays, which is when she first played the game.
