This is a 7 minute long film I made for you people to watch.
It features the song Tooth and Claw by Sol Invictus and I'm proud to say that I got an official permission for it, so no infringement here.

Edit: Thank you so much for Daily First!
Edit: Thanks for frontpage, I love you Newgrounds :)

Very nice!

Wow, this is just what I'd been looking for - a wonderful little piece that was symbolic and full of little tidbits of information, subtext and intrigue, while also having a solid plot, in spite of there being no real voice acting to speak of.

I was totally enthralled by this piece from start to finish, I'd love to see it made into further episodes, especially with what goes on with the character upon his arrival in Hyperborea. It seems that the circumstances got the better of him and the way he flipped was very dark and thoroughly understandable. I'd just love to see more of it.

With the animation and drawing style, I thought that the nose / upper lip that you'd given him wasn't going to work, but I stuck with it and behold, it came good. The different shapes of the noses and other facial features that you've given your characters gives the piece some real depth and it only serves to make it more complete. Even the butterfly's flight style is forgiveable, considering it's wielding a carving knife, some hundreds or thousands of times its own body weight.

Did the tree have to die in the end? because of what it did to the main character, I think so, but if that was to be the case, the tree that he tried to steal a plank from should have trapped his fingers or smacked him in the face with the plank, before he was kidnapped by the ogres.

Thanks for the extensive review Coop. Maybe the hero was just clearing the way for upcoming travellers like him. Or he was just finishing off the things he left behind. Who knows but him?

What is the main point of this flash? What does Hyperborea mean. Also, do the 2 ogres die?

exotworking responds:

Hyperborea is an ancient utopia, similiar to Atlantis or Ultima Thule.

Very nicely done, a bit slow towards the beginning, but other than that the animation was very smooth, art was very original, sound quality good. Im assuming/interpreting the moral of the story is that no matter what comes between you and your goals, a little butterfly with a knife will come to your rescue =P

exotworking responds:

I hope so.
