We Are Science Probes

Hello Newgrounds Viewers,
In my latest cartoon titled 'We Are Science Probes', scientific explorers visiting a post-apocalyptic Earth begin to question their mission after uncovering certain historical artifacts.

I hope you like it.

It features the song "Say Goodbye" (used with permission) by the amazing band 'The Sun'.

Thanks for tuning in,
Billy

Update:
To the Newgrounds viewers, Thank you for the daily 2nd place award and all the reviews. I really appreciate people taking the time to leave such thought provoking posts.

As for the theme of the cartoon, it isn't an anti God story. I was trying to make a point about dogmatic thinking and how this can lead to a lack of understanding. At least that is what I was hoping to do. The funny thing is the cartoon is a little extreme in it's own way, but I chock this up to dramatic license and my lack of skills. HA!

Thanks again for all the views and reviews!

Briliant

That was awesome. I love the way the music melds with the animation. Very stylistic and imaginitive



Domatic way of thinking...O.o

It was a pretty good concept, and the animation, music, etc. was great, however...
Unfortunately the first impression one gets is that this flash has an anti-God theme, which may upset some viewers. You can potray the flaws of dogmatic thinking without making a deep emphasis on religion or superstition (in the end most religions are dogmatic) - at least make religion appear secondary. When you think of it, people like Hitler or Stalin had a dogmatic way of thinking, just an example.
Then again, you can't please everyone...=P And it's very difficult to convey such a touchy subject in such a way that the message/theme is clearly understood at first, but trying to convey your theme that way would be most advisable. Plus you won't get as many nasty and useless reviews =P hopefully you don't count this review as one of them.
I'm glad you made this flash however, it's good to try and address this sort of issue. I do not see a lack of skills, in fact this flash is rather deep and thoughtful!
Still continue with your work, and try to develop a bit more (there's always room for improvement!) - focusing on clarity of the theme. I look forward to more of your work!

The music was a great choice. The animations and sound where perfect.

religion and mythology is not totally useless

but it certainly shouldnt govern one's decisions



Nice

Pretty good concept, everything was executed fairly well.
