Great work. I think that you've nailed the 'feeling of discovery'. It's a shame that you missed the contest.
I really enjoyed it. Especially 'teh epic part' (0:50-1:26). Unfortunately, 0-bombers have completely destroyed your chance of exposure... 5/5 & 10/10
Thanks very much! Not horribly worried about exposure, it'd be nice, but Newgrounds' current genres hinder it enough already. I also think I have a nice little twirp who I pissed off my first day here rating everything down for me...keeps me humble, yanno. :)
But I'm rambling... I appreciate your review, thank you!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
