The gods are created and in turn, they create the world. Featuring content from the Tale of Leaves universe.

That was pretty thought provoking, to say in the least.

Glad that you decided to take a personal spin on dieties (instead of a single diety) here and actually tell an original story instead of mindlessly praising a different Bronze-age fantasy story.

Really a great job here with everything. The story telling. The animation. The originality.

Liked how the gods had very human-esque characteristics much like the greek gods. Makes it much more believable.

I do think that unique voices for each of the different gods would've potentially had more of an effect.

Or if you had one voice, like how you have it right now, include an animation of someone telling this to a child or someone at the very end.

Something of that sort.

Regardless, thanks for the dogma-less and interesting animation.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very enjoyable animation, good voice acting (though see sidenotes), okay story but the characters felt very generic to me, to be honest.

The gods are, in their genders and motivations, very generic and other than their visuals, they bring nothing new to the table.
The animals just get an additional set of eyes, when really, I would have loved to see some truly alien creatures there.
And the elves.... are pretty much as cliché as you can get with non-humans.

As for the narration: while Nicole is doing a good job, I feel like there is something missing, something original. Maybe a voice actor for each of the goods, or a filter over the narration, or perhaps even three voices speaking at once. A woman having this slow, semi-sad monolouge seems so overused.

But it's still a great animation of course, it just feels like it could bring something new to the table. That's what Newgrounds is for after all: experimenting with the media, without having a bunch of backers to displease.
