"Raíces" is spanish for "roots". Click objects to proceed.
This interactive animation isn't supossed to be a challenge or anything, it's just a short idea I had. Also, hurray! My first animation for Newgrounds!

decent artwork, smooth animation, and good choice of music to accompany the flash. im just unsure of what the story was, I mean I get what's happening but I just cant understand why? are you portraying that roots make up who we are and shape how we grow and evolve as humans? don't change the video, just give a little more backstory in the author comments area on why the flower is growing from his chest. just a suggestion. Great work if this is your first flash period. I'll keep an eye out to see how you "grow" with newgrounds, because I see great potential.

Quite the thought provoking flash. Although, I wished it would give clues to the viewer on where to click during pauses. I had to click everywhere whenever the movie stopped playing. I believe the movie was better off without the interactivity.

The surreal animation leaves a the viewer with a trailing thought. Quite mysterious, it was a pretty good watch.

I answered below my choice on interactivity. I said I "really liked the idea of the viewer controlling the pace of the animation, as well as basically clicking things to life -- and death". Therefore, I thought pointing out where to click wouldn't have any sense. I think it's not too hard to know, neither.
Thank you very much for your thoughts!

I really liked the animation style, however I'm not sure making this interactive was the best idea. When I think interactive I think actually having a part in the story but sort of felt I was just clicking to make the story move forward. Though as I said I really liked the animation and the music and sound effects are also very good. For your first animation here, I think you're off to a good start.

Thank you very much! As I said it wasn't supposed to be challenging, but I really liked the idea of the viewer controlling the pace of the animation, as well as basically clicking things to life -- and death.
Thank you, again!
