"The corporations don't care whether we live or die. The gated communities con't care whether we live or die. We've finally stopped waiting for someone to come and save us. We're learning to save ourselves."

This is short animation that takes place in the world of the Fates Worse Than Death pen-and-paper roleplaying game.

are you serious about the chars in here...?

What happened...? you ran out of ideas for character designs? The first two that were introduced were actually kickass. Too bad the entire thing started going south the first couple of mins into it, when it looks like the asian chick's weapon of choice is a hoverboard she raises over her heads the entire time... And then a couple of little kids afterwards?!!!! The sewer dude wasnt all that bad and you were pushing it with the muslim news vendor. But the homeless guy... when he whipped out his tool, it felt like a LOTR throwback... At the end, I dont get why civilians are called to handle a 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer-ish' problem. At least make the char in such a way that its obvious each has a backstory that supports the fact they can handle supernatural baddies.

Not bad.

The animation is ok, it shows tons of potential and effort. Its the premiss that catches my attention. TMNT tried to go this route and didn't get very far. I would like to see someone carry this through.

Best of Luck..Keep to it.

Great animation.

The style is unique, good and fluid animation. Contrary to what most people say as to the flash having a poor plot, I enjoyed having to interpret what the RPG would be about. Obviously a rise against some zombie/non-human beings organized by an elite group of city dwellers, in the midst of political quagmire involving a lack of support from the government authorities... interesting enough but obviously a vague peek at the overall storyline.

I think that the art of animation is not only about the drawings.

The story, if there was any was really bad, the animation is quite good but it can be greatly improved and the drawings where quite good, a lot of attention in the details, just keep it up that way and your next attemps will be far better I can say

Great short film anyway!
