COMMENTARY:
The graphics on this episode are quite dated, but they get the point across. I have no current plans to re-do the earlier Delura episodes; I'd rather spend my time and energy producing better looking new content :)

Created with Lightwave 9.6, Flash CS5, Audacity, Ulead Video Studio 11

LORE:

Aiden makes his way to the worksite he's assigned to. As usual he's running late, but something doesn't seem quite right today.

Hundreds of miles beneath the Tor planet's surface lies a place where TIMCO (Tanadrine Interplanetary Mining Company) has established large network of interconnected tunnels made to collect and process condensed energy crystals which are used to power everything from the smallest device to the largest of cities.

There are many challenges in regards to harvesting these crystals, however, as the energy they expend can easily disrupt any form of wireless communication. Because of this, no aspect of automation can be employed reliably... much to the delight of highly skilled professional mineship operators.

"there needs to be some substance or innovation aside from copying *verbatim* styles you see on videogames."

Nice to see a flash copied from "Descend" and "Forsaken" and it looks worse than these old games...
YOU need more innovative and original ideas.

The Voiceactress.. Oh my god.
She sounded totally bored. I mean, the HUD goes crazy, and she don't care about it..
I hope the other parts will be better, because this was no fun at all..

Cheers.

Thanks for your input! I value all commentary, even the bad. Even if this is older work, it still helps develop that audience-based "radar" that I find very valuable. I need devil's advocate viewers, and Newgrounds is a great place to find those "speak their mind" types!

I love this series, it has so much charm despite the older episodes lacking in the visuals. The story really grips you as you watch more and more. I just love it.
I can't wait for it to develop further!

You're such a fanboi!

Looking forward to putting out EP 005.03 with your musical works in it... it will be the first time an *experienced* sound artist has applied their expertise to the Delura series.
