I wanted to make something creepy, with an art style similar to David Firth's. It ended up with this short animation, which I tried to focus primarily on mystery, atmosphere and visuals.

Don't expect anything mind blowing, it was more a test than anything, but please enjoy. :)

Thanks for the helpful reviews everyone!

Updated 9th Feb 2012- Fixed some background problems that admittedly broke immersion.

I like it. Do more.

Reminds me of David Firth.

In a nice way.

I really liked this, the only reservations I have about it were that the animation could have been better and there were some parts of it where the screen turned completely grey that kind of ruin the immersion, but other than that it was really great. You nailed the atmosphere perfectly and I actually really liked the words that would come from his mouth, I thought it was pretty creative. Great job!

Thanks a lot! Yeah the background was supposed to be black, not sure what happened there... I'm gonna upload an updated version any minute now anyway with black backgrounds. :)

A little anti-climactic for such an interesting start, but i still like the whole thing. Great style, nice and creepy

I see what you're trying. It's fine, I guess. The fonts that represent what the character is saying kinda detract from the style, though, since they're orderly and the rest of it is not. I also didn't understand the abrupt ending. The animation was okay and the sounds worked fine though. I think you should have made it so that the character did something that changed him; something to do with going outside.
