The main characters are Vito and Wilhelm which names mean full of life and strong-willed warrior.

We are developing The Reward into a series (along with a comic and DnD campaign book) you can see the now finished campaign at:

The Reward was made at The Animation Workhop. It is directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjer, Bros for life. See end credits for the team :) We now made Sun Creature Studio, a company made to bring you more series and films like this (Together with Bo Juhl). For more about The Reward:

Also find us on Twitter and Facebook :)

To the creator(s):
High Five.

Best animation I have seen. Ever. Great concept and visuals. Music and effects make this truly special, the lack of dialogue gives this a truly unique atmosphere. The details of the world you created (note "Langemadde"'s post below) are awesome, shows how much thought you put into this 9 minutes, 1 second. If I had money it would be yours.

I have watched it three times now, still loving it. Amazing work, you deserve rewards.

Fine, you just made me create an account so I could write how awesome this movie is and, well, it's SO DAMN AWESOME!!! I loved this plain character setting of the simple minded optimist Vito and the sharp and lightly furious Wilhelm, they're very complementary. Also all the details of the world (like those Bamboo-Bears) were really lively and made me curious about this whole world. I kind of was reminded of a lot of Animes like Princess Mononoke & Chihiro (world-design & artwork) or One Piece (mostly of character-design & -concept and story). At the end friendship and becoming someone you want to be is the greatest treasure of 'em all.
Don't stop with this! I know, you wanted to show Vito's and Wilhelm's story just for getting started with your story and then go on with other adventurers, but please show us more of them anyhow. Best shortmovie on Newgrounds so far!
