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.

In a contemporary world of fantasy filled with magic and mystical creatures, a wizard sparks one young man's journey into adulthood with a bang for his good deed. Come laugh and learn with Wojtek as he battles orcs, goblins, and his own helpless retardation!

***Disclaimer: I do not own the rights to the song snippets and some select sound effects used in the animation. I'm not claiming that they are my own nor am I attempting to make a profit off of them. It's all in good fun and used to enhance the entertainment value of the overall project, so please understand and enjoy!

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:

You're right, that was abysmal.

The animation was okay and so were the voices, but over all it ws pretty bad. You seemed to make up the "story" as you were animating this. The idea is a little gross too. With a little work, I'm sure that you could turn this into a non-blamable work of flashy goodness. Whatever that means...

People find this review helpful!

The idea is okay, I guess... the execution not so much, at least not for my tastes at least. The story-telling was very, very, very, very s l o w. Try to speed things up next time by storyboarding, if you don't already, or getting someone to proof it.

The animation/art also needs some work in my opinion, but it's a nice start. My main problem with it was the pace. Slow. Very slow. Otherwise, it has potential.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

great series idea

I'll be waiting for more from this. its very funny. i think you should try to get a cross of this and "leo and satan", that would be epic.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Kept me entertained

I'd watch more of this, gotta work on the longevity of your cuts though, sometimes you stay on some shots too long, and ti takes away from the scenes. Other than that, i love the concept, and the art style, and would love to see more.
