Thanks for the second frontpage Tom!
The second installment of the series "Conditions".
PLEASE WATCH EPISODE 1 BEFORE WATCHING THIS.
NEWGROUNDS.COM/ portal /view /417311
A criminal took Red (Member of the Police Department using "The device") his wife as a hostage.
In exchange for his wife, he wants Red's device.
But Red can't release the device because of the conditions (His adrenaline level is too high).
Stay tuned for further episodes!
The whole idea is kind of ludicrous, with the ability to freely manipulate atoms (in a totally free and unrestricted definition such as episode 1's) in such a small package, with an (apparently) unlimited power supply is essentially having the power of God. There's no reason they had to try to negotiate with the criminal, they could have simply manipulated a few grams of anything around him to near-light speeds and killed him instantly, OR reduced him to air, or lime jell-o, or '68 corvette, you get the idea... Also, the whole drama and over-acted voices are kind of cheesy, I can almost see that the characters want to speak in Japanese so this could simply be a badly-dubbed kung-fu flick.
The whole idea behind it is pretty cool, i guess, but delivery is ridiculous, the animation is sub-par, the dramatic music is overdone, and the voice acting is cheeser than a block of cheesy cheese.
dude the way you described the device in episode 1 was awesome but if it has the power to move atoms freely then you could control someones body by controling the atoms within it. you wouldn't have a need to create weapons you could rip someones heart out or break there neck or something. the story line is pretty good but all i can think about is how quickly the cop could just remove the guys trigger finger with "The device". you need more depth
animation was fine
Great flash! It's really funny how these essay-writers are grumbling about lack of depth, plot what so ever like they would be reviewing a hollywood movie. This is a great sci-fi flash movie with developing story - of course if there will be more episodes. I like the idea about crazy scientist, super-glove and the 3 conditions - like from Asimov's robot stories. Keep up the good work!
There should be more depth.
I wasn't sure that you could pull it off at the beginning because of how weak the plot felt, and my suspicions seem to be right. The only thing you need is more depth. Since this is only the second in the series, barely anywhere in the plot and it says to be concluded in the next episode, it leads me to the conclusion that this series is lacking in story depth (so far that is). This appears to be the beginning of a story - a man embittered by the death of his wife due to the unbending rules of a device. The only thing is, he has to do something now or it seems almost pointless. I could be wrong though, depending on where you take this in the next episode, I'm just uncertain on how you will fit in a meaningful plot in the next one.
On the flash - great animation and graphics, voice acting was decent. Remember that the plot has to go somewhere, that's the thing you need most here as far as I can tell.
I make movies the way I feel like it, so wether there's a plot or not, I just want to finish telling a story I made up.
But somehow, I can guarantee you, the story of Red is to allow the story to grow towards the plot.
Can't wait for Part 3 :)
Don't you just love it when someone who hasn't contributed anything decide to write lengthy essays (see below) about how "bad" a brilliant flash is? It's like a homeless bum saying that Beethoven is no good because "EVERYBODY plays the piano".
Anyway, the animation and voice acting once again were very good, and the plot, while old-fashioned, never gets old. It's a shame our hero didn't flip out right then, but I'd love to see what happens in Part 3.
Detective Nwar troubleshoots a hyper-intelligent evil AI.
A magical, musical adventure for the whole family!
