I liked this indie animation a lot.

I am not an animator, but simply as a viewer, this had better animation than lots of games and shows I have seen. The only problem I had with this was the unoriginal plot and setting, with the enchanted forest, the random animals and the glowing white monster thing, and the inexplicable people, who are just wandering around the wilderness. However, I am a realist, so I'm just speaking out of my ass lol. There is a damn good reason such plots and settings; they are really entertaining. Not everything has to have a point. The best part about all of this was that the art style is a lot like Limbo's, so it was fun imagining that this is the prelude to the game. All in all, it was a good animation.

This is truly a work of art, nothing less!

The story was basic, but very well executed: the lighting, the music, the silent characters, all of this really drags the viewer into the story, so that one will almost live it through.
Lighting, art style, and music all blended in some sort of alchemy, which yielded very pleasing results, well done.

However, I feel that I must point out that the animation of the characters felt a little choppy, and it could use some improvement. It is far from terrible however, as some pointed out - in fact it's pretty decent, albeit average.

Overall, movies like these are a rare find on Newgrounds, and deserve attention. I admire your amazing talent, as not many could create such scenery and story like you.

Your animation is excellent! Even after the end of this small, but very good movie, I still been crying! Though, I do not like sad endings and sad music (from sad music I'm starting to cry) you have earned a rating of 5 and add to favorites.
P.S. I'm from Russia
