"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.

Script by Brian St.Claire-King, Animation by SickDeathFiend.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Pretty good. Also, glad to see that John Creaseman from Road of the Dead had a prototype in this. That's pretty sweet.

Very Overrated

Seriously now? 3.92? I am sorry to come across as so negative here but this was a bland, disgusting animation that has gotten far more good reception than it really ought to of. The animation doesn't look too good, and the art is very unimpressive. Other animations of this score are far more smooth, detailed and polished looking. Here the characters look differentley porportioned in each scene, and it's not consistant. Next we'll move onto sound, well needless to say it had none. The only sound provided was a repitive dull song that I imagine was made with prefab FL studio loops. Story? Well not much was provided but the fact that it's an ad for some hardcore web roleplaying domain means not much will be shown, but what I see is a handful of different sci-fi and cyberpunk themes poorley thrashed into a short film. Lastly presentation and polish. Overall not too impressed I think using the Newgrounds portal as a place for free ads adressing non portal games is a poor use of the freedom the portal gives us and a waste of many users' time. It lacked polish in many ways, such as the hobo's upside down hand, the disapearing and reapearing children (there one scene then not the next then there again), the baseball bat in a safe (What the Hell, I mean serious?) and the gate clipping through the Indian guy. I get it that this no doubt took some time, but I personally detested every last second of this. That's my opinion. That's what a review is for. By rating it low I'm not saying that's the score it should get, but in my eyes this was a piece of junk and nothing will be able to change my mind.
