The Tarboy SOUNDTRACK is now available for download here:


Whoa! We're totally blown away by the response Tarboy's had so far :O We can barely keep up with all the incredible reviews, notes and emails! Thank you everybody for the daily feature and front page!

It's taken us a long time to finally upload Tarboy, so thanks to all the people who've been waiting patiently. We hope you enjoy it :) Check out the Bonus features too, we put a lot of work into it!

The score was composed by Newground's own Hania Lee.

Now that we've got this one out we can focus completely on Tarboy II.

One of the most impressive I've ever seen

Absolutely amazing. Its rare to see something so well thought out and so ambitious, and yet cohesive. Everyone has been telling you how awesome this is, so I will tell you a few things I honestly think you can improve on. Firstly, there were times where you were a little too ambitious with adding motion to a scene, like when the fat cats were pushing the button that turned on the light that melted tarboy - the extra movement on the camera angle was annoying. Also, it was a little sparse when it came to leaving an impact - for people with a huge amount of talent, I think that a little more depth could have made this the greatest of all time.
I have to say that my favorite scene is when Tarboy is fighting the green robot in the dark and all of the sparks are flying. I would have liked to have know where the colors were coming from, but it was impeccably animated otherwise.
I look foward to more from you guys. Oh, yeah, and Awesome freakin musical cues. THey remind me of dustball.

great work

its a bit predictable, but i enjoyed it alot and cant wait for the second part....but i gatta ask, why did you keep switching the eye on Grandpa?

on a more constructive note, during the scene where tarboy enters the building and everything goes black and white, the animation on tarboy as he's slowly walking, the waist area seems to drop a bit too quickly for the way he's moving, maybe an extra frame would solve that issue.
