Great film, little jerky but overall awesome. The art style is very similar to limbo, which I love.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This movie is haunting and captivating at the same time. This also reminds me of the type of animation that was used in the game Limbo. Very well done all around.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I liked this indie animation a lot.

I am not an animator, but simply as a viewer, this had better animation than lots of games and shows I have seen. The only problem I had with this was the unoriginal plot and setting, with the enchanted forest, the random animals and the glowing white monster thing, and the inexplicable people, who are just wandering around the wilderness. However, I am a realist, so I'm just speaking out of my ass lol. There is a damn good reason such plots and settings; they are really entertaining. Not everything has to have a point. The best part about all of this was that the art style is a lot like Limbo's, so it was fun imagining that this is the prelude to the game. All in all, it was a good animation.
