Hello Newgrounds, long time no see...
From the creator of "Aura" comes a brand new [quite old by now, actually..] flash production - SMILE! .
What was to be quick side project turned into a beast that took me over 3 months... Three months of forsaking and returning, three months of occasional work suicides and sleepless nights...

as always, NOTE: May not be liked by everyone, but was never meant to be liked by everyone. If you're here only to watch funny mario parodies, then you can skip this movie now.

Enough nagging. Watch the movie.

(There are quite many people that get confused by the ending. Just to let you know - yes, it's supposed to be the way it is. )


A masterpiece.

One of the greatest flash movies i´ve seen on NG.
Only the ending disappointed me, it don´t fit to the depressing aura that suck you into the video while watchung it, but after all...

Exellent work.


Im not sure how you intended the audience to interpret this. The beauty of this flash, however, was that the protagonist probably had no idea how to interpret what was going on to him. Beautifully constructed, and the level of subtle detail really made the whole thing pop. Awesome. Stanley Kubric would be proud.

-TJ stands up with a hundered spikes through his back and empty eyes. He isnt smiling.-
You dont have to smile if you dont wanna. It was a good video that had me awake the whole time. 10/10 5/5. Loved it, but i couldnt find it to smile for some reason. odd, no?
