"The corporations don't care whether we live or die. The gated communities con't care whether we live or die. We've finally stopped waiting for someone to come and save us. We're learning to save ourselves."

This is short animation that takes place in the world of the Fates Worse Than Death pen-and-paper roleplaying game.

Script by Brian St.Claire-King, Animation by SickDeathFiend.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


I don't know how this became 1st place... anyway, it's a nice animation (better than a plenty of "10 stuffs" I see around), but a couple things that makes me not-liking it:

1) the front cover (for instance, the loading art) was waaay more cool than the animation art itselfs.
2) people move their mouths and don't speak... it would be better (and more dramatic) if they didn't... if the movie goes mute, then go mute! midterms are strange
3) this is official publicity of the RPG release or a filme made by a fan? the doubt about this make me doubt about the quality of the roleplaying game itselfs...

anyway, besides de glitchy animation, the lifeless characters and the strange storyline, I kinda like it... just not enough

so great effort etc......
movement sequences were all very jerky and not smooth, especially the walk sequence, lots of proportions looked off and not in a stylistic manner, very unclear as to what exactly was going on, the character designs could have been a little more uniqe looking, and the end words seemed to relate more accurately to a differently themed piece than this one, something from disinformation or what not
but....great effort and clearly a lot of work put into it

Good animation, poor story

I'm giving this a 2 for the good animation. The story needed to be expanded on to deserve a higher score. What on earth did this have to do with corporations or gated communities? What was that frankenstein clawed monster person at the end? I couldn't even tell if he was friend or foe or why they were seeking him out. And what's with the helicopters with the military gunners? Even if there are answers to these questions on the the website you linked me to, that doesn't help the flash any. I shouldn't have to go to another site to figure out the purpose of a flash on this site. I'm reviewing the flash you submitted, nothing more.

Your amazing static artwork is horribly thrown off by the bad animation. A refresher in how human anatomy moves, perhaps? That's pretty much my only gripe.

It's a start.

I can't say that the animation or story--or lack thereof-- was very good in this and perhaps some more time spent would have produced something that made a little more sense. It was a good idea, though, and the drawing was well done. I can't say anything that people haven't already said. It's got potential but take the advise constructivly and keep working at the animations and it'll come.
