EDIT: Thanks so much! I didn't check this for like a week after the bad score and totally missed my second front page! All of harsh comments don't really bother me too much. Perhaps I'll make an even longer one for all of the haters.

EDIT 2: This is definitely an underdog.

I haven't uploaded anything here forever, so when I had to make an animation for a final project, I was excited to finally show you guys some of my new work! This is probably the most FBF intensive thing I've ever done (which isn't saying much).

The concept is basically this...

The hole represents the link between our inner selves and the outside world. The ghosts represent all of our...well, ghosts. After the release, we sometimes our able to reach out and strive for things that we haven't been able to before. Unfortunately, though, sometimes our prior actions have a way of stealing the things we want the most.

Make sense? No? Eh, whatever.

Hope you enjoy it! It's pretty brief, so it won't waste too much of your life at the very least.

Redoing my review from last time.

Hey, I left a real bad review a long long time ago. I finally got around to coming back to this. First of all, I want to apologize for how nasty I was back then. Had alot of stuff on my plate: bills, food, gas, all that fun stuff to worry about. And it just so happened I seen this flash on that day. This really isn't all that bad. The art was sparse but not that terrible. I still say it's a bit short and not much of a story. But alot of flashes on newgrounds are worse. Keep it up bud, and I hope you get where you want to in life.

Thanks for taking the time to do that!


half decent animation
music not to my liking
very short with no clear point
nonsense which at one point was on front page, i find it sad that it made it there.
my first review was deleted so hey- constructive advice- keep this stuff in your head.

HandsomeJake responds:

lol i will carry it with me always, bro


its one of those things that gets you thinking, very good, dont think i could have thoight up something like that

the fuck man???

that was...strange, i think you shouldn't have explained it though, let and animation stand on it's own. this is more art than it is Newground's flash. also LEARN TO ANIMATE SHIT BETTER!!! sorry to say but this would have been easily a million times better had you taken the time to think about how the ghosts look and move, maybe changing the gem into something else to reiterate the metaphor. maybe make the hand move, grasping or something. i like the abstract notion of this, i love the music and with a tiny bit more work you could add an extra ambiance that's not already present.
please don't take this too harshly; i just have nothing better to do today than dispense some useful information.


Well that was actually kinda interesting. After reading the author comments i kinda didn't really get it still, but it was pretty cool in an abstrract way. But i agree with everyone else, it should be longer just so people get whats happening bfore it ends
