This was a beautiful flash.

The best thing was how you were able to capture a mood (even if I don't quite know what that mood is haha). Everything worked well together. The animation, designs, backgrounds, music, and colors.

The story was also really good! I really felt for the father and his son. I actually jumped a bit when that big guy started getting up.

Overall, fantastic job man.

I have to say I love everything about this movie. The artwork is unique in the Flash world and the soundtrack was brilliantly executed, but it's the concept that I love the most. We've seen things like this before: the post-apocalyptic world where small groups of people move around to survive; The Road, etc. But I don't think I've ever seen one where the world has become so hot that a small crack in a temperature suit will cause eruption in to flame. It's the sort of thing that could go further, to become an actual movie, TV series, or video game.

Kudos to you, good sir. Keep up the good work.

This, to Newgrounds standards, a 6-stars movie. It would take me a bit too long to list all the marvelous aspects of your movie (the animation, the design, the music, the color scheme, ...) so I would rather talk about what, still, lacks in my opinion. By no mean does it invalidate the fact that your flick here is absolutely over-qualified to be judged on the basis of Newgrounds standards, as I said.

I ignore what your limitations were for you to create this piece (be it money, be it time) so it'd be unfair from me to deem little flaws roughly. And in my point of view, the story, the plot is not developped enough, it feels like it could have used some more backstory or expansion, but then again, it's a critic that comes from my complete enthrallment of the world you crafted. As I would very rarely say :

Bravo.

Big fan of what you have accomplished here, the style is very strong and really shows your animation skills off well, but so much more shows your amazing art direction. The story is not lacking in any way aswell you have really kicked a goal with this film. Great work, can't wait to see future projects.

Very cool; it's pretty much the Earth after Global warming.
Story was pretty great, and the animation was also awesome.
Good job.
