Edit: *Daily second, Weekly 5th, Review Crew Pick, added to the zelda collection, and front page! Thanks a ton NG I am speechless : >*

Ten years before Majora's Mask, which might explain why the characters are younger than in the game : >

There were a lot of starts and stops for this flash, but I am glad it if finally finished. Special thanks to the voice actors for being so patient through this. Also to the folks on the Skype Superlab, Budj, Joey, Tami, Teejay, Gustavos, and Anna for testing and helping me with the animation flow over countless hours. : P

I had this idea about a year ago and sent the script to a different animator. However before she got started, she dropped out of the project because of school, so I ended up animating the entirety of it.

The flash is a double narrative, featuring two different stories, that share a same meaning. Since a lot of people are not familiar with Majora's Mask, or have it fresh in their heads, I knew it might have people that wouldn't understand it or be familiar with the characters, such as the young boy "Kafei." So I equipped it with a moral at the end to make it interesting for non- zelda fans as well, hopefully.

Special thanks to Seraphim for the great looking loading screen art. Hopefully people can contact him if they need commissions done, he was great to work with.

I hope you enjoy the bitter sweet parable of A Keaton's Tale

Maybe not specifically the Keaton, but something else MM related : >

Wow what a brilliant story!

Majora's Mask made me think a lot about the way I look at the zelda series and even life in general. This alone was one of them. I think we can all learns omething from the ending too. The writing was great and the voice acting was superb and though I don't know any of the guys who participate in this flash I can safely say you all have a lot of potential.

That said congrat on 2nd place you got deserved it

Thanks for your review, we are actually part of a group called Superlab featuring voice actors and artists who help each other on projects in various ways. Keep a look out for are upcoming projects, and we are glad our animation resonated with you : >

This was quite the intriguing tale.
Even though I never played Majora's Mask.

EASTBEAST responds:

I looked all over and there was no official pronunciation, so I went with "Kah-Fey-ee," which when sped up sounds like cafe': >
