Second half of the 19th century. The Poet struggles to live through his fiancée's unexpected death. He finds refuge in writing.



Rated 4 / 5 stars


Somebody characterized this as "adult".... I would say "arcane" or "occult" or perhaps "self-indulgent" in the sense of being the artist's version of a Rube Goldberg machine. Less is often more, I think.

Four out of five stars for undeniably excellent quality and non-trivial style.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Fucking Awesome

This is one of the coolest things I've seen on Newgrounds since littleFoot. Fantastic graphics, amazingly stylistic, spot-on sound, creepy story. It's weird that something like this is actually on NG. It reminds me a little of the stuff done by that guy who did Objectionable Aparatus. This was great. Very good job.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Atmospheric, adult, cool

Very cool atmosphere to the piece, loved the characterization. The movie had a unique voice, idea and style. Confronting and thoughtful, good camera work and use of animation techniques.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Sweet Stuff

Wow, this is some pretty awesome Flash. The graphics were amzaing, the it had a deep story. I just have one thing to ask MAKE MORE. I love the work that you do.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Here's why.

Graphics: TO get a 10, you actually NEED to have graphics, with actual flash knowledge and skill, which you obviously have.

Style: You are you. Your story is new. Your style is unique. That's 10. Those who copy and copy and mimicand imitate are NOT stylish, but you, you have style.

Sound: No flaws, no messed up syncs, obviously the sound has had editing and it shows. Flawless, 10.

Violence: Well, yeah. There's violence. The violence is not overdone, is within the realm of physics, and looks pretty sweet. 10.

Interactivity: Well, not necessarily present, but. You provide a play button. You provide a replay. Good. 10.

Humor: I thought it was quite humorous when all the zombies burst from the grave. 10.
