It's a huge honour to have won the first NG Tank Award.
To be honest, Brackenwood wouldn't be what it is today without the generosity of Newgrounds and the supportive community here.
Thanks everyone for the years of support :D


Waterlollies: Bitey's short-sighted arrogance lands him in a world of hurt.

If you have a slow computer, you will probably experience severe frame-dropping throughout some actionscripted particle scenes. Flash Player 9 required, fast computer and Safari browser (the best for viewing Flash movies) strongly recommended

- - update:
- - if you're having trouble viewing it at 25fps, Waterlollies is now on YouTube. Check my channel:

edit: thanks for the Portal Awards and front page, and thanks everyone for the amazing score and all the great reviews!

For hardcore Brackenwood fans this will be nothing too new, apart from one or two new creatures. Anyone new to Brackenwood will find this is the most complete Brackenwood story so far. Still I have lots of work to do on my story skills so future Brackenwood movies will have greater depth.

Thanks to Newgrounds, this movie was scored professionally by Nathan McCree. He's the guy that did the music on the Tomb Raider games (!) so I'm grateful that he agreed to work on this with me. Thanks to him and Tom Fulp, this movie sounds amazing.

Thanks also to Michael Welsh for ironing out some actionscript bugs for me at the last minute!

Absolutlely incredible

You sir, are amazing at art/animating/story telling. Consistently amazing at that!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

A new standard for artists everywhere

What more can be said? Your amazing creatures and forest scenes play perfectly into your style of animation. Each scene flows into the next with incredible fluidity. Backgrounds that you give mere seconds of screen time show more artistic ability than many whole flashes.

I find this to be the most complete and best developd of the Brackenwood storylines, even if it does build much of its appeal off previous animations. Anyone who seeks clarity for the storyline should catch up on Chluaid's earlier works.

Fantastic music, a wonderful storyline, incredible animation, this is the current peak of what has been accomplished with Flash. I tip my hat to you, sir.

I return the hat-tipping. Glad you liked it, thanks for taking the time to review man. This story was intended to be one that could be enjoyed by fans but also didn't need any back-story, so that those new to Brackenwood would also enjoy it. I still have work to do on my story skills but all in all I'm pretty happy with it, so I'm grateful for your score :D

A spectacular movie. I'm sure that if you wanted to go professional with this, you'd have no problem. Great job.
