awesome storytelling, absorbed me. one thing, you said aiming myself aimlessly tho, does tht make snse?
Thanks man, that's really cool of you!
Yes, it makes sense when you consider that "aim" has two different meanings; "aim" as in to target or point towards something (in other words, he's looking at all the angles of the room) and having an "aim" as in having a goal (he's not really got a clue what he's doing there).
So put them together and he's aiming himself aimlessly; looking around the party with no particular agenda.
that was a very great story. I've never seen or heard a story like that. for that you get a perfect score... very imaginative.
wow, sucked me right in.
this is one of those things where i had to turn each page.
I really enjoyed this. It was a new thing to see as a Flash. The storytelling was SUPERB. It's what MADE the experience. The biggest points came from interactivity. While people usually sit through a movie, it's up to the viewer to progress through the story, hence getting them involved.
Though the text was a bit hard to read, they're being read anyway, so that does not really matter.
This was a true form of art. It incorporated so much imagination and creativity. The hard work definitely shows.
where do you get your influence!?
really great work, 1st of its kind here on newgrounds i'd say.
things that bothered me were:
as already mentioned, the text has to be bigger so it becomes readible.
the other thing is that the pun of the story is taken too soon by the picture and reading the text by myself - instead you should of heard the insulted reaction of the lady, the her going to her car and the motorhowling BEFORE you turn the page - so that when you actually SEE the last page, you only hear him say the pun of the story; which is the "there is no such thing as a perfect match."
those 2 things would have made it REALLY perfect.
but so people don't think that i'm only bitchin', i'll point out what i personally liked:
the generall idea of the story is totally great, turning it into a flash book makes it even better
not that the text was only read, but that there also were the soundeffects of the story to be heard (such as her biting into the fruit and such)
i might already seen this kind of style somewhere, but the drawings are very nicely done
the little gags that go with the story just perfectly (i favor the 2 jokes about kong)
seeing all this coming together into 1 creation is really something, just totally great.
but i think this could also be a very good childrens book, not just on for adults
if the the idea of the story AND the drawings that go with are totally done by you, you'd be a really great childrens book author coming to be
also, this work has more than enough potenial to go beyond the bounds of flash
(just like tom fulps "alien homonoid" got released on ps2), this flash could be turned into a REAL book which you find in a bookstore
if it comes out as a book, i'd be sure to buy it, that's for sure.
i'll also make sure to vote a 5/5 for this fav this flash as well as you as its author, so i don't miss any of your future stuff - and that would be a shame now wouldn't it? ^^
