The Future Wasn't There

A movie about longing, dreams, loss, and time travel. AWESOME.

So I made this movie a few years ago. It was finished just before I started work on AwesomeRaptor. It remains the longest flash movie I've ever made. There is no dialogue, and it originally didn't even have music. And that's the main reason I never uploaded it.

But it has music now! Thanks to Chris Zito's (amazing NG voice actor and pretty cool artist too) massive music library, I was able to tune this thing up with some... tunes.

I really hope you guys like it, but if not... that's cool. Let me know what you think!

EDIT: Thanks for daily third and front page! I love you Newgrounds, and your leader Tom Fulp. <3

Also, to all you guys claiming the movie has no ending... it does. Know that part where the movie stops and the replay button appears? That's the end. The story has an intentionally ambiguous conclusion that is meant to inspire personal interpretation and conversation. Any more traditional ending I could've included would've robbed the viewer of the opportunity to really think about the movie's message. Thanks for watching!



He definitely died

you know

in the end it doesnt matter you do, where you work, what your life style is, its just the choice, would you endure it for the one you love, or try to find an escape, this is what this story shows, and this fellow learned and had the chance to change it all.

a bit of the old in and out..ah?

great ending!!!!

Good Concept

I love the concept, the ending where he chose love over his own selfish wish was a great meesage. I'm looking forward for future projects.
