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

Nice job!

All your hard work paid off, my friend.

There should be no music before the start button, the start button should be on the left instead of credits being on the left and the music with a little bit of work could me more epic but these are little things. It was great! I hope we'll see more things from You.

FutureSquirrel responds:

I am not a composer on any level (a friend even did the audio editting for me here. Anne Baker), so the music is never going to be something I can create or alter myself sadly.

But I love this particular piece- and since it practically inspired the whole story in my mind and directed a lot of the action timings, I think its a fitting tribute that it be left nice and original

The button thing you are probably right on though, given read directions...

I absolutely loved the effort put into this. It is very well animated, the quality is stunning, the story is excellent, and the music fits perfectly.

Please continue to make great flashes like this.
