Daily 3rd Place! Wow! Thanks everyone for the votes and views and reviews! And the TROPHY! Whoo! *dances slightly*

We started this series back in late November and have concentrated almost all of our time into designing the world, characters, voice talents, picking the right music, adjusting volume levels, animation quality, and story development. So we hope this flash is as special to you, the viewers, as it is to us.

Mark of the Beast Snacks

Episode 1 : Dreams of Beyond

Two young boys have always wanted to leave the confines of their village, however it is surrounded by a magic barrier that they cannot pass... However, with the sighting of a strange talking beast and the calamity in the skies, they might just get their chance at adventure...

We would like to thank all the test viewers and people that helped us along the way in getting this series up off the ground and making it a reality. We'd like to thank our girlfriends for sleeping all alone because we were up tirelessly working and pushing toward perfection and utilizing our skills to their full potential. There is always room to grow, but I am unashamed to say that this is our first flash that I feel we poured everything we have into.

About the upcoming Episode 2 : We already have the full script and story line and even the basic outline for Episode 3 and are currently working on the animation and voice acting process for Episode 2. We'll have it launched as soon as we feel it has gone beyond what we have accomplished here for Episode 1.. As they say, practice makes perfect.

Enjoy the flash and let us know what you think.

We hope you enjoy,

Nathan Gibson and Steve Garnett

Fucking awesome

This is what Newgrounds needs. A wake up call. This shit is orginal, surreal, and funny, and it actually HAS A FREAKIN PLOT! So you win stuff man. Or men. You guys are my heroes. This is the kinda stuff that Ive been wanting to see. Right up my alley. Ok on to the review. From the start, we get a run down of the plot. A central goal of the characters and the rules of the reality are laid down. The old man was great, always whacking people like Cranky Kong. I love the attention to detail. Every character in this, no matter how small, seemed well thought out, had depth, and was funny. Rarely do you see side characters, who stand out so much. The guy in the fields, "Your Grandpa's crazy man." awesome. That's side character thing is perfected in Venture Bros, but you guys do it well too. You guys deserve a following and if you have one already, well I'm joining it. It's good when you watch a cartoon, and you feel like you're in good hands. You guys are taking care of us. When you put all of your love into a work, it shows. And you guys love what you do. The writing was deadpan, sarcastic, over the top, crazyiness and I loved it. The moose was an awesome bad guy. Everything was so random, and yet it fit in with the plot. Unlike Family Guy which is just random with no plot. This felt complete, but the series is no where near done. We haven't even left the village yet. Tornado showdown next episode, looking forward to it. Keep up the good work, you guys earned a high place in my opinion. Guess Im a fan boy now.

Hey thanks, I think out of all the reviews this one made our little hearts beat a little faster. When we came into the flash animation we knew little to nothing about animation, but we've been doing comics and graphic novels our entire life. As we fell into the Newgrounds community we noticed a lot of "penis jokes" and perverted boobs flopping around everywhere, and a few far between original good humor. We made it our goal to stick with our original talent and help shape Newgrounds into a "Television Quality" website. And it took us almost 3 years to get a reward, but as I mentioned earlier we knew nothing about animation. Now our equipment is growing, our office is getting more professional, and we've learned a lot. So, thanks for the support, glad you enjoyed, and oh me oh my are you going to be in for a surprise on Episode 2! Hopefully done within a week or two. We'll see you then! And we love our fanboys!
