*Edit - Increased sound quality thanks to Tom buffing my upload limit. This should fix soem sound issues people have been experiencing*

Cheers for the front page and support Tom!

Running time 10 Minutes

Buttons and STUFF should work, if not, tell meh!

6 weeks in the making, and then 4 weeks making it again.

This flash has got to be the most unluckest flash i've ever made. Not ONLY did the copies corrupt all the time, but my stylus pen broke, i got a bad eye infection AND digestive infection, and to top it all off, the main FLA files got a memory leak so bad that i could no longer add anything to it. So after another 4 weeks of assing about, i finally have it ready. And i an't adding no moar!

This flash has the most frame by frame i've ever done, about 85% of this movie is, and it damn near killed me too. The file size of the swf got a little too large so i had to go back through and tween things that i could get away with. Shows that doing it all frame by frame isn't as possible as i thought.

I had to cut it short at the end due to file size limits, as well as pushing flash to its own limitations, so apologise for that.

ANYWHO i'll leave you to sit back and watch what i've been working on for the past month and a smidgen.

I dunno if i've forgotten anything, if i have ah well. I'm done with it!

Critiques on animation are welcome! Ah must improveeee

Till next time Newgrounds!

The story is just so great its against the law!

These original characters and how it is drawn, the music, sounds, but mostly the story of it all, including Escape From Nevara (which seems to be kinda intertwined, am I right?) is just to good to be described with less than every positive word there is in every language existing on the planet. :D
I really really hope for you to continue on both these guys and EFN cause I would actually pay for you to do it. Seriously this is something I really want, no, NEED to see the continuing story on. I beg of you to continue on it and hopefully when its rdy for it - finish it (but that seems to be faaaaaaar away in time). Plz? ^^


Well done! The animation was great! Sometimes maybe a little too anime-style, but most of the time fluently animated and yet animated in few frames, which is probably how you did it within two months! That's an art on it's own! Still, I want you to explain how ya did it in so little time? What's your workflow?

Story was fun too! Although it was quite strange when you introduced the girl (voiceover) as the main character, but it looked like the spikey-guy head was the main character at the end. So it first seemed you tell the story from the point of view of the girl and later on a story is shown that she did not take part in.

Thanks for the link to the music, I use www.musicdirector.nl myself. It's in Dutch, but it has a lot of music.

Oh and if you want to upload bigger files, send Tom Fulp a message (As you probably know, he's the big boss around here :)) I sent him a youtube link of one of my films and he upped my filelimit to 20 mb. (00-Suited)

But good work! I'm keeping an eye on you from now on ;)

This has some of the best animation I've ever seen in Flash. Interesting characters, the humor's there, and so is action. You didn't really give Mini Mel any spotlight at all; she never even spoke.
My only qualms were that the music and sound effects were just stupid or silly in places. While some would say "fitting", I personally don't like stupid sound effects anywhere.
