This is the story of Katan, a little aztec critter who works as a stonemason on huge pyramid projects. He's an eager, talented employee who beleives strongly in what the project stands for, putting in endless overtime to get things done.

When a less committed, self-serving employee hatches a plan to steal the soul jewel of the temple, the mysterious crystal skull, Katan finds himself under blame and attack from the very monument he helped to create.

------------------------

I started making this toon November 2008 and finally exported it in January 2010.
Various delays, injuries, graduations and jobs made it hard to focus on for a lot of the time- but it is fairly safe to say that it took a year to make... Which also accounts for the style changes and quality progression evident throughout the four mins of play time ;)

Thanks for watching- and thanks again to Newgrounds for letting me upload such large movie files

It took a couple of times and I'm still not convinced. All animation is really good. The quality is there, and it is Elite. The story, not so much. I really did try to associate and identify with the rodent characters, but during all the trials they went through, I didn't much care. The scenes started to build tension, then something silly would happen and I further disconnected from this flash. If it didn't end when it did, I'm not sure my attention would keep with it, and it seems nothing interesting would arise anyway that would entertain me. It seemed to plateau quickly and never peak beyond that. 4/10 for the stellar animation only. 1/5 for being well below the entertainment average (for me, anyway) on this site.

animation was ok

the storyline was the weakest thing ever and generaly made no sense, also, some of the mechanisms were both impractical (a few even being completely impossible) and very useless, here I could mention that the spikes which pop up on the corner of aplatform which is suddenly going to be blown away anyway by MAGIC MOONLIGHT LAZERBEAMS didn't seem to really serve any purpose.

And a fucking guy sawing stone with a perfectly ordinary saw, whitout water, what?
