I can't believe it, weekly first.. Thanks so much to everyone and the team at Newgrounds!

To the people who have left a review, there will be a sequel to this, that was always the plan. The time that I had to create this was very small so I had to keep the story very very basic, but there will be a twist revealed in the second one. All will be answered so do not fret! I need to get a hold of my voice actor and begin that process first, so hold on tight!

Thanks again!

EDIT 2: Frontpage! That is amazing, thanks so much for everyone who watched it, voted and reviewed! Big thanks to the team at newgrounds too!

EDIT: Wow, daily 4th place! That's awesome, my first award on newgrounds :D.

I will respond to all reviews asap, thanks.

I made this for my final minor in university, got a first for it.

Hope you enjoy it.

Feel free to leave a review!

Sorry about the potential loss of quality, exporting video from flash does that.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Its different

interesting but a different type of flash, kinda creepy

fearing responds:

Yup, different is what I was going for, glad you found it creepy. Thanks for the review!

Great flash! It had a an eerie theme to it and I didn't know what quite to expect. You're thinking the guy might be delusional in the beginning but it turns out he was doing a just deed after all. 10/10 should be near best for the week

fearing responds:

Thanks a lot for your review man, I'm really glad that it made you think that the fella was delusional at the beginning, because that would obviously add another edge to watching the short. Cheers, looking forward to seeing how well this will turn out. :)

Thanks a lot man! That fusion of animated characters and photo manipulated backgrounds was very much inspired by Monkey Dust. Thanks again!

I was very impressed with this movie, the tone of it was very dark and moody but it fitted very well with the subject matter.

The visuals looked stunning, the loss of quality you talked about seems to be non existent, or if it is there, only helps to add to the grittiness of the movie. I liked the blending of animation with the real world locations. The style of your animation and the way it was presented reminded me very much of Monkey Dust, which had the same kind of dark edge to it.

Obviously since this was for university you didn't have a bloody affair to the killing of the Ice Cream Man, but it seems to me that even if you were just making this movie for yourself, you wouldn't resort to such imagery, as the cut to black followed by the drive home with the hat in the back seat is much stronger than any amount of blood could have mustered.

Definitely one of the best shorts I have seen in a while here, and hopefully more in the same vein to come!

Nice one mate, Monkey Dust was a huge influence on this animation both artistically and with the vibe of it too. I'm really glad you liked it and there will definitely be more to come soon!
