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


Very nice toon!

I was so sad when he Katan fell on those spikes!

All in all, nice story. Wish there was more, but I guess it's cruel - taking in consideration it took you a year to do this :P

Well done :)

Took my breath away

I loved this. Everything about it. It just had a really nice flow to it, and was easy on my eyes, unlike most flash movies I watch. The story was also very creative. The critter were so adorable too. I hope that one day you continue this story. For now, I have something else to watch over and over. :)

Very well done

That was definitely more than I expected. The animations were very smooth and the and it was active enough that it didnt lose my interest. You can definitely tell the effort you put into this flash and it was well worth it. Great job and keep up the great work.

Overall Great

Good animation style, artwork was great, though I did catch one scene that wasnt quite up to snuff, and no audio to comment on except for the mood setting tribal music in the background.

Awesome for every animation lover

THe graphics are simply amazing, the story its enjoyable , i think its 10/10

Please, make a sequel :)
