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



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Watch it every day...

I don't know anything at all about animation, and I don't know why I even have an account on Newgrounds, but this is Epic. 11/10

The animation was very smooth, (don't know what the guy below me is talking about) and the story, although not explained in video, was good. It was really it's epicness that convinced me to give it a ten.

I really liked the animation style, the music, and the creature basis you used for this movie; they all work very well with the theme of the ancient times of South America and their temples and ever famous deathtraps to rid those temples of the intruders. All of those combined show you put in a lot of effort and time into making this very impressive flash.

Next, the flash itself, with its animations and the storyline, was pretty good, too, particularly with our ever classic duo of selfless and selfish and the high-impact and high speed action into the scenes, particularly with Katan outsmarting the traps he had helped make to retrieve the Crystal Skull that their temple was supposed to protect from robbers. The fluidity of action and the details put into his quest to rid the temple of the thief were amazing, and the resulting reward and punishment by the deity to Katan and the robber was very appropriate and very visually appealing.

Kudos to you, for making such an impressive flash.
