'When they want you dead' is a madness story with a little different view on the 'bad guy' thing. If you find the intro boring, don't worry, just sit back and wait, there's a lot of good action later.

Kills: 178
Length: 22m15s (33,440 frames @ 26 fps, dynamic speed, interpolation)
No cliffhanger!
Lines of code: 4,400

It uses my own 3D animation engine. It utilizes not-so reliable but powerful features of the Flash Player. You'll need version 11.2.

====== IMPORTANT ======
There's a chance that you won't be able to start the animation at all. There's a YouTube link below the title for this reason. Also, make sure to choose appropriate quality (old/good/modern hardware). If you find the animation ridiculously slow, restart it on lower quality or rather watch it on YouTube.

Happy late Madness Day 2012!

Seriously beautiful. It's very well done from beginning to end. The soundtrack is absolutely glorious and fits right in with every moment, as well as all the effects and artwork. The 3D effects was pretty cool. I can tell you had a lot of fun making this nice and lengthy. Great job. It was very enjoyable to watch. Sure could have used a pause button or at least a scene select though. :P

This...jeez...The credits and opening are WAY too long. The action is slow and almost painful to watch. This seemed to play more with a wobbling camera then being a madness tribute. It screamed 'LOOK WHAT MY ANIMATION PROGRAM CAN DO!' more then having passion for the outstanding series of brutal storytelling that is madness. Wobbly camera, random zoom ins, and poor animation in the 'close ups' not to mention the constant slow motion....NOT impressed in the slightest.

Theres so much before the interesting things, its like a book, the graphics are great too, but the beginning and the credits are so annoying. Plus being that it takes so long to get to the very interesting parts you may lose viewers

I can only say this beautifully made flash is going to start a revolution in the madness series. Not ever did I see such brilliance. Loved the 3D aspects as well as the great BGMs. Very good choice on those! Fits right in the madness. I think Krinkels would be proud or shatting tears for such awesomeness you delivered. Not ever ( well at least I can't remember ) did people use 3D plus an animation switch with 2D before. Also the wise life lessons added in makes the story also a lot better too. Love the somewhat new enemies you put in here. The skeleton and zombie head was really cool. The only small downside is that even on highest settings it doesn't runs smooth at all times, still it looks beautiful. Oh and yeah, maybe you heard it yourself but I find the audio quality of the gunshots somewhat bad. I got a decent set-up and my speakers will make a tiny small cracking sound when some guns are firing. But I can't really blame you on that because there are more vids like that. I surely do hope you make another one for next madness day! You got my attention for sure! Props too on the filesize, stuff loaded pretty fast actually :D
This is a small gem amongst all madness videos, and you made it. Feel flattered, feel proud, feel awesome. You deserve it.

I didn't want to follow the trend of Half-Life sounds or CoD sounds, so the sfx I use should be real gun sounds from somewhere on the internet. Also I do notice the cracking in other vids, that's why I set the bitrate highher than usual. So... weird.
Thank you :)
