Thought provoking and interesting
I don't know why, but I'm drawn to this flash by your art style It's not incredibly detailed, but yet it's quirky and cool in its own way! I like how it (appears to be) is set on another planet; this shows us that what happens in our backyard happens all over the world.
I see it this way: the little lever that kinda breaks in the beginning causes the ball to roll; longer it rolls, the more the problem "snowballs." Then the solution is out of our reach when it falls into the cave. Business will lose money, so he (maybe the colorful guy) goes to get the working men (blue w/ brown pants) to solve it. Hence the propaganda/advertisement tower. I think the blue lizards represent the problems, and the little spots of light are "cracks in the system." So when he finally gets the ball, he has been deluded into thinking everything is better by the powers that be.
Anyway, I enjoyed it and it made me think. Nice work!
