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

I watched this in my intro to game design class a couple months back... Have to say the amount of effort, thought, and emotion put into this is simply mind-blowing. I hope you guys get enough money from your kickstarter to begin a series based off this because I will certainly be watching!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This was truly amazing and beauti - HOLY SHIT THERE'S A DnD CAMPAIGN!? Five full fucking stars my friend. Every thing about this animation is simply amazing. This has to be one of my favourite animations - not only on newgrounds - but of all I've seen so far. Great work.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I can't even begin to describe the degree of awesomness in this animation. It's not just the quality of animation,which is professional by all levels (as well as music and voicing) but the intensity and at the same time subtility of the plot. It's more than just a tale of friendship and adventure, it's a story of legacy, of mystery, and of life in many ways. Like those creatures they're unknowingly chopping the legs off, or using bird bait to fly with an eagle, or looking in the mirror to see their true selves. This movie is just full of symbolism and awesomeness. I liked all aspects of it, and the handshake at the end that really shakes the world is so damn POWERFUL. Just amazing. I have contributed, and I'll be looking forward to what comes of this, though I can't imagine the series actually being better than this short. It's a masterpiece on all levels. Oh, and then there's the fact that not a single thing is actually said in the whole film. You don't need language to understand it. Great work!

Amazing... Probably the best animation I have seen in a very long time. Thanks very much and you deserve nothing less than 5 stars.
