The Tarboy SOUNDTRACK is now available for download here:


Whoa! We're totally blown away by the response Tarboy's had so far :O We can barely keep up with all the incredible reviews, notes and emails! Thank you everybody for the daily feature and front page!

It's taken us a long time to finally upload Tarboy, so thanks to all the people who've been waiting patiently. We hope you enjoy it :) Check out the Bonus features too, we put a lot of work into it!

The score was composed by Newground's own Hania Lee.

Now that we've got this one out we can focus completely on Tarboy II.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

10/10 For production value!

... unfortunately, a couple of points are lost for the implied endorsement of communism.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

pretty cool

pretty awesome story a little too kiddy for my taste and the animation though awesome isn't really my style I'm sure your next one will be awesome too.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


Pretty cool i guess


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This would make a great pixar film

The story feels a little clogged and dense, and if you expanded on it it would totally work. You could totally make this into a full length movie. I'd see it.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


The animation is amazing, but the plot needed work. Seriously there is only hardened tar and melted tar and since he could already moved he seemed to already be melted. I wonder why heating him up would make it so he couldn't move/stopped him, not to mention why he never hardened in the first place.
