Athenos is the astral entity of Knowledge, in one of his travels he finds a tribe of rare beings, called by him Hominods. Observing that they are fated to extinction, he decides to intervene, but could they appreciate the invaluable treasure that he will left in their hands? or may the ignorance become an unbreachable obstacle to their evolution?

This is the animated prologue of my title project "Chronicles of the forgotten world", it's an educative material, made as a reading incentive for kids.

Thanks Newgrounds for the third place trophy, and more yet to all the people that voted and commented my animation, i worked really hard on this one. I'm really glad to see that so many people understood the message that i was trying to tell with this animation. I'm really happy with the results. Thanks to all of you!

Good animation. Why create fake Gods when there is already 1 God that is the God of all? Had to ask. rhetorical.


Impkid responds:

I'm using the term GOD just as an archetypical concept, not trying to form a new religion or blasphemy or nothing, in anyways, this is just the teology that i'm using for this alternate world that i made, for a fantasy tale, it's just fiction.

Oh, I see how it is, the yellow man cant do anything without the white man's help, this is this a metaphor for the expansionism of the British empire.

Really good animation.

Your character designs were excellent as was the plot. However the angle's and imagery you chose were very lack luster. The scene before the monster attacks the mother and son an the bridge crossing were the times where I found myself a little frustrated at to why you drew them like that. This is especially true when the entire part where the Hominods were trying to get Athernos to stay. The angles and shots from that part should have been the same quality as those mentioned before. All in all, even though you were able to clearly get across your message, even without the text at the end, there were quite a shots I found quite disengaging. Hopefully once you progress further with your great project you overcome this.

The moral: Stay in school kids, or you'll be stuck making allegorical flash videos for the rest of your life!
