Nice Victorian Flash
This is a very good flash, and I'm surprised it got to the portal, despite the no violence or funniness. You did a really good on it nonetheless.
The graphics were iffy at times, with the bright colours and overuse of gradients. You did a good job with the motion tweens, but you could have done some better frame-by-frame animation in places (i.e. The flag at the end.) I expect that the Anime style for the people is a homage to Emma? (That cool Victorian one.)
The sound was perfect in every way. Except for the lagging. It suited the style nicely.
The ink bottle intro screen was genius, a very good way to set the stage for the movie. But it wasn't a game, so interactivity isn't really much of an issue.
I'm glad there wasn't any violence or humour, because there's a time for everything, and this movie just isn't meant to be funny.
