Read the following if you have seen the movie and want to understand it.
(Copied from one of the review-responses)
He obiously felt he was not with the "Train of social society", he had tried to follow it once but realized that it was impossible to do so and also that thats not what he really wants, so he stopped his attempts on becoming a passenger on it.

I thought the hole in the wall as a frightening emtiness within him wich he tries to hide from(by closing his eyes), but is still always afraid of.

The salesman was alittle rough, but my idea was to think of him as how the society is when interacting with the main character. He looks really weird wich is how the main character thinks of society. And his job is to help whoever needs assistance with what his job is, he does what he is supposed to do(fixing holes, repairing problems or whatever), then leaves.
And the part with all that metalstuff in his mouth and in the hole was really rough, thats what Im not sure what I thought about when I made this :p . Mechanics, plumbers, Janitors. They all fix problems, changes things to what its supposed to be like(Its times like this i feel my english is lacking :p), so the salesman had done the thing with the metalpipes and all while the main character was sleeping because thats how its supposed to be, and it looks weird, because thats how the main character thinks about how everything is supposed to be.

And thats kinda it I guess, thats how I thought about it.

That was pretty cool, it was a different style, didn't really enjoy it that much, but to each there own, my advice is to fix up some of the long distance shots, the close ups look good, but the far ones look cheapish.

Deceptively deep, and no, it is nothing like Salad Fingers, being that Salad Fingers is shallow and is all about weirdness and shock value. King Melancholy actually tells a story and goes somewhere. Very good keep going.

((( UNIQUE )))

This was cool, it was unique, and the audio was just creepy but it made it better that way, as for his voice it was cool, artwork was neat and the erie effect of the room gave for a creepy feel, nice flash indeed, i hope to see more soon...

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


mega weird!! i have never seen anything like this before... ever! on a scale of 1-10 for origionality, you get a 10!! hehe.
first off, the guy had a really weird voice, also, there was some really freaky music playing in the background, that just added to the weirdness...
the graphics and animation were both pretty good, and so were the sounds + music. so overlal, one really weird movie that i didnt really understnad (especially the end!) with a weird, interesting plot. nice work
overall score: 7/10

FrostRhino responds:

I wrote a response to another review what my idea with everything was, Ill add that to the authors comment now, in case someone is interested in reading all that :o .
