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!

Knowledge is power!

But... power corrupts, and corruption is a crime, and crime doesn't pay, so the more you know, you'll become broke! ;o;

Seriously, nice movie. :3

I like the meaning of the story, every page of the book has the power to give us knowledge
Nice animation though.

Amazing Work. But I interpreted it much differently than most. I found that the "higher being" was like our God, rather than just a random higher being. He grants us knowledge, and we throw it away, acting as if we can live without it. So, as punishment he leaves, leaving us to teach ourselves not only what these strange words in a slab of paper mean, but how to use it to our advantage. Whether it be to build a house, Make tools, and even protect themselves. That wasn't over analyzed was it?
