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 3.5 / 5 stars

Very Great

While it was a good movie have sat and watched waiting, and waiting, and waiting for years just for a second tar boy I just wish you would make one i know you probably have schoolwork or what ever, just, just, please. okay?


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


hard to hear at points, good over all!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Rather good.

This animation is rather good, but it definitely doesn't deserve the rating it's got.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Overall... good.

I hate to say it, but the plot was awful. It really made no sense whatsoever. There are a few too many plot holes, but that's not what this video was about.

The animation was perfect. I literally cannot think of a better way to execute the scenes than you did. The style was beautiful. I absolutely loved every aesthetic aspect.

Would have been a ten if not for the incoherent story.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

pretty cool

Pretty good animation and concept, but it's not the most original thing i've ever seen. the world being over industrialized and robot slaves fighting back is a very common plot setup. I don't mean to be a total asshole by being one of the first people to give it a low rating. I have to admit that it was well animated and that the plot was executed well.
