Epexsus is a internet-based flash cartoon series created and animated by me, Dylan Simpson since 2009.


The setting of the series is based on the distant planet of Epexsus, where war between humans has devastated the planet and it's human population, the humans have made "tribes" for themselves that there are now hundreds of, small warfare still goes on between tribes, but it's not as severe as the "Great War" the main world-wide war that happened over 400 years ago that diminished the humans into a few. The humans have repopulated only a small portion of what they were before.

I'm much more active at my deviantart, you should watch me there!

This seem very well made, and it's one of the most realistic post-apocalyptic settings I have seen. The fact that we humans might well get reduced into small tribes and start living in a more primitive way then currently is quite what might happen if world peace isn't happening.

I think that's the only two outcome over planet has. Either the world gets destroyed and we almost instinct ourselves by war or we obtain world peace. For the time being, it seems like we are going for world destruction. Unfortunately.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I found the story somewhat intriguing (at least when it comes to the clans, the main protagonist seems cliche so far), and the comedy was legitimately funny, although at some points inappropriately placed, (amusing things happening in too close succession or put in places where suspense should be building, like right after the younger brother saw the smoke from the other village). The animation and some of the voice acting was mediocre. I can see this series having a lot of potential, but if I were to suggest just one thing, then it would be that you should perhaps pay closer attention to scene progression and at what point it is appropriate to add comedy. Since it appears your story is meant to be serious with comedy on the side (much like harry potter, or other such stories) remember that comedy is most effectively used as comedy relief, right after a serious scene has reached its conclusion ('emphasis on reached its conclusion', slicing comedy right in the middle of a serious scene would in my opinion be a bad idea.)

Don't take my review the wrong way though, I'm just better at pointing out negative things then positive things. I am looking forward to what you do with the next installment.
