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!

That was by far the most beautiful video I've seen on here. The characters are adorable and show so much feeling. The quality of the movie was amazing. Awesome job!!

Brilliant. Again.

When I saw you'd produced another episode of Brackenwood, my expectations were high, especially with your other work which features on Newgrounds.

This was by far the best of your submissions, and with your artwork and Nathan McCrees score to accompany it makes for a fantastic production.

You've raised the bar yet again and I watched the episode over and over, simply to see how much detail you've put into your work, fantastic effects and some awesome action sequences really makes you one of, if not the most appreciated artist on Newgrounds.

I really can't wait for you to make another.

Damn my crappy computer D:

It ran pretty laggy like on my computer, but on low graphics it was ok.
Very very good animation, intresting storyline and better animation again.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Holy shit

Without a doubt the nicest animation I've seen in ages. The effects were insane, too. It never really looked like shortcuts were being taken. On top of that, it was surprisingly longer than I had hoped for. The story was great and did a good job linking itself to all the other episodes, while still broadening the scope of this little world. As if Phillips hadn't already solidified his title as the best author on Newgrounds, he pulled no punches to make the best short this site has ever harbored. It will only be succeeded by Phillips' next endeavor.

I agree with Senti

The story line you have created is very magical and amazing. It is a nice escape for a little while just to watch the animation. I would love to see this world you have created implimented into a 3-D platform for a game but...Idk. I just really love your work and thankyou for sharing it with us. :}
