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:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is a amazing animation, the theme of adventure is soo strong here and it's distinct visual style is jaw droppingly gorgeous. I teared up a bit at one part, because the characters right off the bat were so easy to relate to. I couldn't bare to see willhelm in pain. I love this short film and even though it's message is "journey matters more than destination" type of fare, it's done in a very better way and hits the message right on the nail.

Astonishing. The artwork was spectacular, coupled with an engaging, easy to relate to story. I don't think I can find anything negative to write about this.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I first saw this a few months ago, and it completely blew me away. It's incredible how rich a world and detailed a story you were able to make with no dialogue whatsoever. Basically, this is incredible and I will follow the work of those that made this.

The only thing needs improvement is that you're female side characters were a little flat.

I saw this the first day it was put onto Vimeo. Glad to see it spreading to Newgrounds. This is and has been my favorite animated short of all time, and I'm so glad that you guys are turning it into a series. I wish I could have pledged the highest amount on Kickstarter (or any amount; I'm a poor art student in college, haha). You guys are doing an amazing job and I can't wait to see more of what you have to offer.
