Hello Newgrounds! I missed you.
I finally have the opportunity to show you LUCKY DAY FOREVER. Completed 2011, premiering at last online NOW, right here on Newgrounds!
Enjoy.

"Prole 514 dreams about winning the Great Lottery. The lottery winner is transformed and allowed admission into the elite White society, where everyone is beautiful, young and happy and people spend their carefree lives solely on fun and partying. One day, 514's wish comes true... but was this what he really wanted?"

Thanks for all the great feedback and reviews, kind and less kind alike! Yes, I do read them all.

Thought I recognised your White Society's faces! A wonderful (possible) companion to Smile! that elaborates and extends wonderfully, and a pleasure to have more of your work on Newgrounds. Loved the constant trading on sexuality, appealing to humanity's base nature (as shown with the neighbour's unwelcome visitor and the porn) in order to keep us under the boot, while masking it -literally- as sophistication . Ever seen Charlie Brooker's 5 Million Credits? Similarly touching and blackly comic, as well as using sex.

Only difference between LUCKY DAY FOREVER and today's society is that humanity refuses to recognise it's state of oppression as it is not clean cut Good vs. Evil here, our incentives are smaller, addictive and seemingly less sinister than the lottery. Our idolisation of celebrity and wish to abdicate responsibility for our own lives has led to our subjugation and transformation into gurgling babies, amused by the flashing boxes and moping when they are switched off. Rant over, loved the piece. This is a documentary disguised as art.

Brilliant animation. Great artwork, style, audio, concepts, implementations, everything! At the very beginning I was wondering if this was going to be like "1984" by George Orwell, and while it started that way and held a strong relation to it, you took some very nice liberties that played out in your favor. The entire concept of what the ideal society is was bloody brilliant. It even ended strongly, but on the other hand, I was confused by the ending. This is still getting the 5 stars because of how amazing everything else was and I still kinda understood the ending, but it feels like something went over my head. I don't know, just great job though.

For all you who don't know, this flash is LITTERALLY paralled from George Orwell's novel 1984, a fantastic dystopian novel. And while it is rooted in the book's premise, the depicted form of Big Brother is rendered brilliantly, with these supper models. I NEVER write reviews unless they are worth while, and this most certainly has exception depth. And might I add, for all of you who thought this was a realization for humanity, books likely have the ideas before videos depicted them. Word of the wise. 5 out of 5 hands down.

It's not often you see something like this. Especially on this website. Personally though, I loved it. I found it absolutely... enlightening. I doubt I'll ever find another story like this, whether it's in movie, book, or animation form. This is absolutely excellent quality story. I could find 1000 other great things to say about this, but it would take too long to read.
