The Hyrde Ep. 1

Author Comments

Follow Inspector Spectre, Ghoul Gal and Zombor as they try to protect an ancient box and destroy the evil that came from it!

The Hyrde (pronounced "herd") is a new animated series that tells of three reanimated corpses who are created and charged by the Illuminati to protect an ancient box and destroy the evil that was born from it. As Inspector Spectre, Ghoul Gal and Zombor chase down the supernatural in New Jersey in a beat up bakery truck, they begin to learn about the box, the life that exists within it and their own former lives.

Using New Jersey and its folklore as the backdrop, the series takes The Hyrde to the darkest places as they battle living trees, pig headed ladies and even the Jersey Devil!

The Hyrde is currently in development for mobile devices worldwide. While primarily designed to be a mobile series, select episodes will be shown here at Newgrounds.

Since I could only list one musician through NG, it should be noted that the awesome Hyrde theme and end music come from the band Mighty Jack at http://www.mightyjackband .com

meh

Animation could use some more work, story needs A LOT more work

And why didn't they just shoot the damn tree immediatly? Seemde to word a lot better that chopping...

Other then that...i'm interested, maybe it'll get better over time



nice movie

i think it needs more work and could exclude less violence as the story was basically horror all the way through even though i'm a big horror fan i felt it did'nt rech what it could of but overall it was good keep it up

eh, pretty good.

Kept expecting Batman to pop up out of no where. Good animation and voice acting. I like the heads coming out of the tree, pretty creepy. I don't see why they didn't shooter the tree in the first place.

Hah!

"earworm" haha - that kept me laughing - kind of ruined the movies 'mood' for me, but that's just my problem i guess :) The sound was great and so was the animation.

Great animation, rubbish storytelling

*sigh* I hate it when this happens. I hate it when a talented artist comes along with a great work of animation to share... only for it to fall flat with a lousy story. I deliberately avoided reading the description before watching, because it's in the animation itself where information should be given. Sadly, there is none. Who are these people? Why are they acting like lumberjacks? What the hell was that tacked-on fight sequence? I feel like I've fallen in media res. You would have been better off going back to the beginning and writing a proper introduction. I can't say this episode draws me to the series when all I'm left with is confusion.
