Meester DAY, I are the loving of this animashin, it are the good. I know however, that you are the ables to be making some of them good musics, and thiss animalation are the needing of some good jam scary muziks. You are needing to be adding to the soundtrak some, hmm?

Blammed b-4 I realized there was more than just...

To other viewers: There is more than just the first scene, it just takes forever to get there. I'm only saying this so you don't do like I did and rate it low before realizing that it wasn't just a still-life with blinking lights. :-) It takes about 2 minutes for anything to happen, but something does eventually start happening.

To the author - sorry about giving it 0/5, didn't know it had more to it until I read other reviews. I'd give it at least a 4/5 right now if I could undo my prior rating. The animation was good by the time it came around, but it took so long - seriously, I never would have waited that long for the action to start if I hadn't read other comments indicating that it eventually did. I get the "setting up calmness" aspect of it, but it would've been just as effective if it were a fourth as long. Had it been about that much shorter for that first scene, it would have been perfect all the way through. But the waiting was just overkill. Still, I'd un-blam it if I could, but I honestly had no idea it was going to lead anywhere beyond that scene. I waited like 2 minutes and nothing happened. That really rather detracted from the overal "cool quality" of the piece, as it really was pretty good once things actually got started. Keep it up! :-)

You see, more responses should be like ^^^^^^ this. ^^^^^^^
Tell me what I did wrong, but keep me going, its what I like, and what every other animator likes. Criticism, not insults.
Thank you kindly! :D


scary scary scary
made me jump when it ran by
good work and i hope to see more!


The starting scene where he is watching TV just takes tooooo long... and overall it wasn´t a good story nor it had any sense.

NathanDay responds:

Where are the artists on Newgrounds?
Did you not read the description?
I'll be sure to walk you through my next animation, maybe I'll even hold your hand ;)

Alright...somewhat horror

I liked this flash as a horror style.....at first was bored, but that was probably caused on purpose just to throw me off with the whole scare tactic.

A few problems though.

1. Your animation was good until the sadness started talking, then your main character became somewhat....immature...can't really describe it. You had great animation, then the art just went downhill at one point. Perhaps just wanted to quickly finish the flash?
2. I couldn't understand the Sadness....except when he said "Don't be scared" and "Sadness" work on audio a little bit.
3. At the beginning, I got so bored, that I almost left the flash. You need to have some sort of music playing, at the very beginning. I could eventually hear the music, but you need to have something that attracts the viewer.

Pretty good Halloween flash. THE GREAT CTHULHU HAS SPOKEN!!

NathanDay responds:

Thank you so much good sir!
We all start somewhere :D
