This is the story of Katan, a little aztec critter who works as a stonemason on huge pyramid projects. He's an eager, talented employee who beleives strongly in what the project stands for, putting in endless overtime to get things done.

When a less committed, self-serving employee hatches a plan to steal the soul jewel of the temple, the mysterious crystal skull, Katan finds himself under blame and attack from the very monument he helped to create.


I started making this toon November 2008 and finally exported it in January 2010.
Various delays, injuries, graduations and jobs made it hard to focus on for a lot of the time- but it is fairly safe to say that it took a year to make... Which also accounts for the style changes and quality progression evident throughout the four mins of play time ;)

Thanks for watching- and thanks again to Newgrounds for letting me upload such large movie files

Great flash.

I've loved this flash since I first saw it about a year ago. Easily on of the greatest stand-alone flashes on Newgrounds. Saw your other work and found it pretty good too. Keep up the good work FutureSquirrel.


The whole escape from the underground dungeon was magnificent. I watched it several times and I must say this is one of the best flash animations I have ever seen. The speed and everything was right on. Great job on the story line too! 10/10 :)
