This was awesome, different from most animations on Newgrounds. This, is a piece of cinema.

It reminded my of Samurai Jack :D


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not a long epic but a short peice. Not much story; It's 'end-of-the-world-hot' (Nuclear fallout? Alternate earth? Global warming?), water is scarce and seems to throw people into anarchy - making decent folk struggle. Theres a fight; and then the end of the short. So that's a pretty basic story; but not a bad one. Less is more.
I rate the art above everything else. I like the use of digital art here. The lighting effects are ambient and the attention to little details are refreshing. Sound is really good.

The missing 1.0 was just the mood of the story. It was nothing particulary new. Then again, that's fairly hard to do nowadays. If for a little elaboration on the scenario then it'd been a 5 star; was hoping for more from the story than a fight scene.

Really great; if you don't mind answering - What programs did you use to achieve this?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

The animation and graphics were great, from the backdrops to the way the characters looked and moved. You can definitely see that a lot of work went in to perfecting this piece.

I liked the storyline, but I felt it needed something between when the big man falls and the chase begins. I like that no words are spoken in the whole thing, but maybe words mouthed to the child from the father at this point would've drove the point home better in my opinion than a repetitive hand gesture? Either way, it's only nitpicking. Really great work.
