This is for the Winter Flash Off / Christmas Collection 2009.


This is REALLY LATE because my tablet decided to go and explode on me. Thanks to newgrounds for awarding me with a new wacom one though! in the meantime i borrowed one and got it in before the deadline wahey. This one's personal. I didn't have time to make the music for this one though.

This is my second flash with a full storyline and it's in colour so it took a lot longer than THE.LIFT. Appreciate any advice or comments, i'm still rusty at this.

And I can't get higher quality .gif files as an icon, help.

Interesting symbolism

The idea of Christmas during a recession was one that was certainly difficult for many to come to terms with over the past few months. Hopefully it will not be a sight we witness again for a very long time.

The animation and the tune created a very powerful ambience and as a result, you feel that you are connected to the protagonist (you?) in the piece. I remember the wonder that filled me on Christmas morning as a child and now it seems so far away, but there is still hope. Despite the woes and all of the goings on with my family, there was still enough of a chance to sit back and appreciate what I still had, which was most of my family around me at a time when we should be thankful for what we have, as opposed to pining for what we have not.

A very good use for the new tablet - congratulations on winning one, I hope to see many more successful animations from you and your new equipment.

Great job

I thought this was a real nice Christmas flash,the animation looked great and the music went very well with the video,overall i thought this had a lot of meaning and is a great addition to the NG Christmas collection page.


i liked it alot.
the main character not having a face kind of threw me off for a second.
And the arrows seemed really stylized but i think it would take your flash farther if you added more to the style.
