I would like to thank you all in advance for reviewing my work. My inspiration for doing this are the Newgrounds Members and family. There are two factions (Anarchy and Crowd Control) that will determine the fate of Neo Arcadia. 17 years ago, the Big War was faught and it is said the only survivor was Zero. Both groups are in search of him. Now a drifter, will Zero become the savior or cause the destruction of Neo Arcadia. What side will he choose? His name is Zero........ And this is his story....... Enjoy

Not bad at all. First of all, ZERO KICKS ASS!!!!!!!!!! Second of all, great work on the storyline. you've got me hooked. I agree that it coulda been a smidgen longer, but not bad for what was done. Looking forward to Episode 2.

trytan responds:

Thanks. I made it short on purpose. However, I will make it a "smidgen longer."


Seeing as how i love sprite movies i put points toward protecting this movie. Should have been longer, might have showed a bit more to keep the ppl interested, things like that. As far as the music goes, this may be just me, but playing music from bands or producers is very hard to make fit unless put in at the right time. Hoping this passes tho, making way for your next movie, which i hope will have more to it.

trytan responds:

Thanks for the info. I'll look into that.

Shite Sprites

Sprites. You gotta hate em. some people have skills and use them for good. some people COULD have the skills if they chose the right path in their animation.

The Sprite:
And animated animated image that forms objects in 2D characters.

These ani-gifs, can be downloaded of the internet and all you have to do is motion twine it. Add some text and there you have it. Something that looks like shit is fucken boring and is a waste of your life. The only thing you actually make up in these types of animations is the text that scrolls or appears on the screen. Really this doesn't take much to do and not much imagination to come up with a babyish story.

You should try and expand your skills as an animator by drawing your own characters and landscapes/backgrounds. Something that is more productive so more people will enjoy it (not just little kids how like SNES or crummy pixel characters). There is nothing "attractive" about a sprite they look disgusting.

I really hope you take some of this advice cause it will really help you.


trytan responds:

Thank you for being honest. I will take some of you advice.


this was short
it's based off of sprites
the text boxes cut off some of the text.
the music didn't play right
not much really happened.
I mean..was this a good thing???
A bad thing???
Sorry. Try again.
