It's a huge honour to have won the first NG Tank Award.
To be honest, Brackenwood wouldn't be what it is today without the generosity of Newgrounds and the supportive community here.
Thanks everyone for the years of support :D


Waterlollies: Bitey's short-sighted arrogance lands him in a world of hurt.

If you have a slow computer, you will probably experience severe frame-dropping throughout some actionscripted particle scenes. Flash Player 9 required, fast computer and Safari browser (the best for viewing Flash movies) strongly recommended

- - update:
- - if you're having trouble viewing it at 25fps, Waterlollies is now on YouTube. Check my channel:

edit: thanks for the Portal Awards and front page, and thanks everyone for the amazing score and all the great reviews!

For hardcore Brackenwood fans this will be nothing too new, apart from one or two new creatures. Anyone new to Brackenwood will find this is the most complete Brackenwood story so far. Still I have lots of work to do on my story skills so future Brackenwood movies will have greater depth.

Thanks to Newgrounds, this movie was scored professionally by Nathan McCree. He's the guy that did the music on the Tomb Raider games (!) so I'm grateful that he agreed to work on this with me. Thanks to him and Tom Fulp, this movie sounds amazing.

Thanks also to Michael Welsh for ironing out some actionscript bugs for me at the last minute!


The animating is brilliant, the absolute concentration and focal point on your characters and their area surrounding them is impeccable. You expose their persona amazingly, and despite the lack of dialogue for the characters speech wise, you make up for it with your immense providing of personality in their actions. I cannot stress it enough, your work is the pinnacle of entertainment for me. I may be speaking with nostalgia, but your work on movement, usage of themes, and overall care of the information being provided and reliability of music. I think you are by far a great animator, and your videos tend to be hypnotizing. I enjoy that you are trying to conjure more of a story as well, and your personality being administered to your characters make this nice. You have great rhythm.
