This is the story of the last of the dashkin. The people are all gone and in a world of innocent animals, the solitude, the sadness and bitterness have corrupted his view of life. What does the future hold for such a tragic creature? Will he wander the planet, forever alone until his death? Will he always be the wild King of Brackenwood?

It's a massive honour to be nominated for a 2nd Tank Award, thanks NG! Thank you for front page, all the great reviews and the incredible score for Daily Feature.
Thanks to Brackenwood fans and donors for all the support not only during the 4 weeks I spent making this, but also in the 2 years since I submitted Waterlollies.

Since then I've been working on the Brackenwood feature film outline with my good friend Ryan O'Loughlin. With no plans for a new web episode in the meantime it occurred to me that Brackenwood fans could be waiting years for the feature. I didn't want to abandon them altogether, so this new movie is my way of staying in touch with them and the NG audience.

This is the first Brackenwood short to break away from the "character introduction" style movies that had little or no character motivation and plot. This is a story, not only answering a lot of questions, but asking just as many new ones.

I used Flash CS3, the .fla is over 300MB (half of that is audio) and it took me 4 weeks.
Don't worry I won't be leaving it another 2 years. I plan on starting storyboards on the conclusion in jan-feb 2010.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

This should be a feature length film

Incredible, always has been. Peerless among other Newgrounds submissions in regards to artwork and animation, but now a detailed plot?! I've got high expectations for the coming series.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of, if not thee, best series on Newgrounds.

I mean, seriously, it's so compelling, so well animated, so atmospheric, and ingenious. It's like if James Cameron could write. :P

Late reviewer

The only comment I want to bring up is perhaps the narration of Bitey's emtions.... Most of the whole loathing and loneliness were already well done by the animation already. Not that the narration was bad, no, but this has always been narrated by it's own astounding visuals and music. Although, it does let anyone new to this series get a quick grasp of the depth of this story.

The narration is a lot to take in; a complete shift from pure art, music, and mystery that it was before. The new element of narration's just very different.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Do I even have to say something? Perfect.

I'd like to bet that if you'd look back in the review section of your older videos, you'll find my poorly-written comments in them entailing your greatness.

After 3+ years, you still keep amazing me. First with BrackenWood, LittleFoot, The YuYu, Prowlies and now this masterpiece. We finally get to know a bit more about Bitey, who he is, where he's from, why he's here and the witch as well. Love that you remastered the witch too, shows me that you're truly devoted to the Brackenwood series.

That aside, 4.72/5.00 is higher than anything I've ever seen on here, well-deserved too. I can't see a reason, perhaps people not used to the shortness, that someone would give this lower than a perfect 10/10.

So what you're doing now, Adam, keep doing it. Keep hold of it, keep it alive. This is your masterpiece, it's up to you to finish it and up to us to enjoy it.

Superb job.
