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!


pfft no, knolage is on the internet.

That was a great video, and it really makes you think about our... greed and thrirst for knowledge.
Also, it was set to an amazing soundtrack, which I downloaded almost immediately after watching.
Nice work

so thats what happened. and humans have only used books half assed ever since and learned bad editing to suit their wants.

Great job with the symbolism & philosophy! I saw this as a true assessment that often ppl will expect & even demand more; if / when given things. (Give a man a fish and he eats for a day teach a man to fish and he can feed himself for life) This little video shows the dangers that can arrise if things are done freely. In my experience ppl DO expect & demand more & rarely show appreciation. Well done
