EDIT: This is "The Forever Woman: Prologue Episode" otherwise known as Episode Zero. The next episodes in the series - in which I hope to address some of the reviewers' complaints - will be episodes 1, 2, 3 etc. This is my first ever full length flash movie. It started out as a college project, and this remastered edition was designed purposefully with newgrounds in mind.
Here is a brief plot synopsis:
The Forever Woman is an immortal cyborg whose body has been through decades of enhancements and augmentations. An unknown group of scientists, funded by the sinister Valkyr Corporation, are responsible. After receiving a mysterious letter from the Valkyr CEO, she heads over to the Valkyr Building to meet him. This episode depicts their meeting and the events that result.
It seems that people think I was trying to make a serious horror/action series. If that's the impression they got, something is very wrong. Since she has no real weaknesses and simply cannot be killed, I realised that all dramatic tension would be abscent. So all future episodes - while keeping the dark sci-fi art design - will be played up for comedic value. There will also be a lot of fourth wall humour/games references (since the character is herself a walking games reference).
Taking the model of Monty Python's Life of Brian, this kind of comedy only works if you have a "straight guy" (in the film it was Brian himself) who is the only sensible voice of reason in a world where everyone is batshit crazy. The Forever Woman - although she never will speak - will fulfill this role (note: I have made backstory explaining why she cannot speak, to be revealed later). She will play the straight role in her actions.
