I know this animation seems kind of simple, but the large file size is because it's long (sorry for the wait). I've left the extras and other features until the end of the movie. I hope it's better than the first movie I made. If you like this, I've got a sequel lined up, as soon as I can figure out how to get that tesseract to stop crashing Flash.

NOTE: The original file was 10.3 MB, which is only a little over 10MB, so to make it fit under the file size limit, I've reduced the audio quality from 24kbps to 16kbps. If you like this flash, then I may raise it back to 24kbps, if the staff would allow me to bypass the 10MB limit.

EDIT: Feature already. Thanks guys, it was much better than I expected.

EDIT: Scene selection added to the beginning, and most of the sound effects are now quieter.

If people are finding the movie too slow, it may be because your computer specs suck, or it simply runs better on flash player. Just download the .SWF and open it with flash player on your computer, and it should run faster.

sound design is more important that sound effects

Nice story and style, but couldn't make it all the way through cause that weird bubbling sound was so loud on my laptop speakers. Loved the music choice but couldn't hear it over the loud cartoon SFX and that persistent bubbling noise. Love that you put the time into finding and syncing those effects, but as an audience member I got pretty darn sick of them, and they were so loud!

very long

this is quite long, but every second was worth it. keep up the great work!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


at first it was really slow to get into. But as the story progressed it really grows on you and draws you in. The simple artwork made it charming and the music perfectly complimented it. kudos.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Very nice quality.

It was very well done, and I didn't notice any bad audio like your description implies to me. I enjoyed watching it for about the first 50% of it, but then it felt like it was just being dragged out to me. So I started multi tasking. Its very well done so Im giving it a 5, I just dont think the content was amazing to me.

This is a really great flash

Please ignore all those stupid leechers saying its too long or boring.

This is NOT long at all and each second of it is worth a perl.

I just dont want those brainless guys to influence you in any way.

This is no doubt a very well drown show with great ideas.
If you plan on making another one, make it as long as this one :)
Good flashes should always last a good while so everyone can enjoy it more.
