Knowledge is power

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!


Really great job with the art and story telling. It's a really great way of showing how we should appreciate and utilize knowledge bestowed upon us. This animation is pretty much the best animation I've ever seen made to be a reading incentive.

I liked the theme of divine intervention to save a primitive civilization and how this species grows reliant on a higher power for progress. I'm sort of working on flash animation and literature as well in college and THIS would be a great combination of both of those things.

It's great to see that you recognize its educational potential, I aimed for that all along. Thank you very much for your comment!

Mind blowing! Absolutely great! Great choice of music, and the message was very clear. I really like your vision too, definitely got captivated by your imagery.

I'm also really glad you didn't end with him just flying in to space. I felt like thats what was going to happen!

( too awesome to put into words. ) O.o
( cant speak. ) O.o

FINALLY an awesome submission. And is very very true!

Great work! Very clean animations and original art style. Keep working hard, I can't wait to see more od the series! The god reminded me of Horus and Anubis a bit, all the characters looked very clean and cool. Nice job! Not everyone can tell a story with no dialogue. Keep at it!
