Short back story: The snowman's child has neglected him, so he takes us on a journey through the last chapter of his memoirs.

Please submit this to the Winter Flash Off.

This is the original ending. I finished a new ending, but every time I tried to export to .swf flash would crash to the desktop. Hopefully I'll be able to release a directors cut with the alternate ending. Please enjoy. This is my first flash submission and my most ambitious flash project to date. I spent about two weeks working on this (excluding breaks) and all of the work was done using the touch pad on my laptop. My kingdom for a stylus.

Enjoy.

*EDIT

Well, I appreciate all of the people who checked this out before the close of the Winter Flash Off. However, I am upset that it was not recommended for the collection. Come on, guys and dolls. It's wintery. In any case. Thanks for watching, and once again, I appreciate that you took the time to check it out. Perhaps I'll have better luck with the next contest. Plus, I am almost done with my music video for Sky Eats Airplane, so keep an eye out for that. Much love.

Impressive

Wow this actually made me really sad. Damn you. Yeah, great artwork, weird perspective, nice sound effects. Damn, that's sad.

It took me ages to find a good "fwump" noise... Thanks for the review.

It's sweet, but...why?

Is it because the kid isn't playing with him anymore? I thought the sounds were really interesting, pretty clear you recorded those yourself, or at least the snow crunching underfoot sound. They lent a unique flavor to this flash. It was sweet, but something holds me back from saying it was great. Maybe a little too sweet. . . a bit more plot would be nice. I was wondering why he was hanging out in the diner at the beginning.


CyanideBreathmint responds:

Yeah, the kid started to neglect his existence after he was built. If I have a chance, I'll add more plot. I actually didn't record any of the sounds, I am just diligent to find exactly what I need. He is supposed to be in a bar, drowning his woes. And, last but not least, thank you for taking the time to watch and review.

Amazing

Although the mood is pretty depressing and negative for the holidays, it's a pretty good flash. I especially like the music choice, fits well. The colors for the snowman was nice too, instead of pure white; it kept my eyes on him. Good job.


CyanideBreathmint responds:

Well thank you. I wanted to steer away from the generic "happy" holiday flashes and bring something different to the table.
