IMPORTANT: watch the whole thing, even after the credits

i spent ages on this. it's my first madness animation (dont count casey the punsiher, i made that during this)

if people like it i may stop playing tf2 long enough to make a sequel.

Final note: if you like the music, check out DJ-Fantasy, he has heaps of cool music

EDIT: if you watched this when it was first uploaded, i fixed the screen issue :(

EDIT 2: WOW! 3rd place, must be better than i thought! :D

- i got front paged? thats awesome! :D thanks to all people who made that happen, newgrounders and newground mod team and the like

- thanks heaps for the feedback, i've been using it all as i make the next one



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty fun

General idea was good, and I enjoyed the part where he fought his hallucination near the equipment locker. I feel like you could do well to expand on that premise in any continuation.

It's clear that a lot of effort was put into this, and the combat isn't that bad. Most points here are going for the general premise, and a few interesting effects.

You missed out a lot of details that could have made this better, little things that would have appealed to me. For example, when he kills the bandage-wearing agent, the agent flips him off. I would have liked it better if you did a little more with that, perhaps having the main character cutting off the finger in a kind of Grindhouse style moment.

tomtyke responds:

actually, that bandaged agend is going to be a reaccuring charachter, i'm going for a more, "cyberpunk" world, so that agent is going to be returning in the next one to get the protagonist with some pretty sweet armour and energy weapons


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Perhaps not the best, but pretty badass.

While the animation isn't as frantic as other Madness, it makes up for it in style. The psionic powers are a great addition, and most of the animation is relatively fluid, it somewhat uninspired.

tomtyke responds:

i got quite a few more inpired ideas that i thought up during the creation of this, and there going to be in the 2ns one :)

I agree with Fxy. This is really close to new stuff made by Krinkels and perhaps better then old episodes of it.
Plot is told in good way, animation is smooth, music stylish and sound edit decent. Even fights look awsome.
But there is one (not a big) deal - cut scenes, where text appears should be little longer, because sometimes is really hard to catch the whole thing.
I enjoyed this one and I'm looking forward to next episode.

tomtyke responds:

yea i know :(

i ran into the issue of time, where the music would de-synch with the rest of the animation, so i had to make time, and the only real place i coul take it from was the cutscenes, lol :3
