Minecraft? What's that, sounds stupid to me.

5 months ago I did an improvised voice recording about my initial reactions to Minecraft. Well, I finally got around to animating it. So here you go!

There's also a hidden Easter Egg cartoon by Sam Green (the artist formally known as MasterSamus). So yeah, find that thing.

Also, thanks to jarrydn@newgrounds for the awesome new logo tune.

Good for a nice laugh.

This was a nice flash, it wasn't "knock my socks off, fantastic." But it was good for some chuckles that I laughed at all through the day. A nice Flash with some very funny points to it. But first let me start off by saying, to some of the knuckle heads who are ignorant enough to actually think that you don't have a unique style, you're dead wrong. I've followed the Gamer Tonight series a long ways and I love the way you animate, don't change one thing.

The parts of humor I enjoyed most were the excellent use of facial expressions. I loved how one minute it looked all cartoony and the next "It's Glorious!" (that part killed me) Your animation was excellent and the shock humor at the end was way unexpected as shock humor should be. A very good job on those parts.

I can understand the audio quality as you recorded the audio while you were intially playing the game and your intial reactions were pretty damn funny if not but a little exaggerated. (but that's understandable) So I can let that slide.

Regardless of the material you were working with, you managed to be funny all on your own. However, regarding the material for the jokes which was obviously, "Minecraft observational humor" it fell pretty flat, I mean, you should know the creeper jokes are getting old. So that lost you some points. Other than the weak humor regarding the creepers, I loved all the other parts.

This is what a good animator does, even in the face of using old audio which you had to animate around you still made it work for you to an extent, good animators can limit themselves and still be able to be humorous. A valiant effort rewarded with a damn fine flash. Thanks for the laughs. (I also enjoyed the easter egg :3)

Thanks for the review! Yeah I'll admit the start might have been a bit bland. The main reason for this was because the entire voice recording was improvised in front of a microphone. I was making it up on the spot. I know that's a poor excuse for not taking my usual route of writing a solid script.. But the original recording was not intended to be animated. Glad you enjoyed it though!

Not Your Style.

It was a great animation, and pretty funny, I enjoyed it.

Unfortunatly you know how much you've taken from egoraptor. And it's pretty astounding how much you've managed to completely copy without even attempting to hide. Maybe you can develop your own style of animating, coloring, faces, etc.. Instead of leeching off of someone else completely.


RubberNinja responds:

I still don't understand the few people who've been saying this. While I can understand the similarity due to the fact it's a fully animated video game satire made with paintbrush and onion skinning.. The way me and Arin draw I still believe is quite different. I've imitated his style before in the past (Girlchan competition and other junk) and I had to sufficiently change the way I was drawing facial features, limbs, hands and body posture substantially. But regardless, he's a very talented artist and a good friend. I can only take a comparison to him as a compliment, no matter how negative you try to spin it. Glad you enjoyed it though!

GOOD DAY SIR.

Easter Egg!!

I found(using the power of the tab button)that before you hit "Play" scroll onto the creepers face.It should be smiling with sunglasses.Click it.

Bit unoriginal

Don't get me wrong, it's a great cartoon, but it seems like you're trying really hard to emulate Egoraptor's style. I honestly think it'd be better to just find your own thing and go with it.
