Athenos is the astral entity of Knowledge, in one of his travels he finds a tribe of rare beings, called by him Hominods. Observing that they are fated to extinction, he decides to intervene, but could they appreciate the invaluable treasure that he will left in their hands? or may the ignorance become an unbreachable obstacle to their evolution?

This is the animated prologue of my title project "Chronicles of the forgotten world", it's an educative material, made as a reading incentive for kids.


Thanks Newgrounds for the third place trophy, and more yet to all the people that voted and commented my animation, i worked really hard on this one. I'm really glad to see that so many people understood the message that i was trying to tell with this animation. I'm really happy with the results. Thanks to all of you!

Thank you so much!


On EVERY page. Except in the bible. Or any "holy" book. Science is best.

Knowledge is power! I completely agree. Which is why religious establishments should be separated indefinitely and shunned so that knowledge can be attained!

Bravo! I love your message that knowledge is power. Only wish more humans would understand . . . but you know: humans will be humans.

higher being helps out lower species, higher being gives lower species the maual for life, lower spceies gets needy, higher being leaves, lower species learns the hard way but suceeds. i love it :D

I know you have probably heard this like 10,000 times by this point, but the plot of this very well animated piece of art, seems to be based more or less off of Christianity, a different view on it, but still, very nice , every thing looked and sounded great.

Excelent argument, animation and soundtrack. One in every while a great piece of work find it's way into NG, and this one is surely one of the big ones. Congrats. :)
