Ah, after a month of work, four month hiatus, and half a month of finishing up, it's arrived. The first installment of ABYSMAL ADVENTURES.

EDIT: damn, I always thought it'd be cool if this were frontpage'd, but never thought it'd happen because, well, yknow- it's not exactly "GOLD, JERRY!" So big thanks to voice actor Mick Lauer for bringing this to Tom's attention and giving it a spot to be enjoyed, even if it gets pulled down after a day or something.

EDIT2: Dude, I just watched it for the first time since I finished it and realized I misspelled RicePirate. Name changed! (But that's all that's new, the slow pace is still there unfortunately!)

EDIT3 (11/28/16): Boof, been a while. Where'd all this body hair come from? If anyone somehow finds/revisits this, I was informed it'd be best for Newgrounds for me to swap out the copyrighted music due to potential legality shenanigans (SURPRISE). With the original audio files currently lost, there are rough patches in the VO during the musical scenes, but some lines have been outright re-recorded while the SFX in those scenes have been mostly replaced. All has been given tape distortion to match the original crappy audio for maximum phoniness.

The original unscrupulous version is still available on YouTube here for those interested/nostalgic for ancient, obscure internet animation:


make more

make lots more

A fresh breath

Yep, this was hot! Though the story had some quirky holes in it, I think you did a great job piecing together a first prt. As has already been stated, a lot of the timing is unrefined in such a way that it steals from the momentum of the entire piece. Things that should not be under-addressed are many, and I insist timing is of the upmost importance especially with action oriented scenes.

I too am looking forward to some wonderful work from you as this series and you skills develop! Keep it up buddy


i actually really enjoyed this, keep making more man, you got me hooked :)


I enjoy the main character very much so. However as stated before, the storytelling, mainly near the beginning and especially at the subway scene was S L O W. I got it, the guy blew into pieces, there was little reason to show each piece for 5 seconds. And the conversations were usually "words" [wait a couple seconds] "words". Make it like a real conversation, a little quicker there too.

The animation is good, the story is likable and I enjoy the main character. Very promising series.
