The main characters are Vito and Wilhelm which names mean full of life and strong-willed warrior.

We are developing The Reward into a series (along with a comic and DnD campaign book) you can see the now finished campaign at:

The Reward was made at The Animation Workhop. It is directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjer, Bros for life. See end credits for the team :) We now made Sun Creature Studio, a company made to bring you more series and films like this (Together with Bo Juhl). For more about The Reward:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This has very good animation with a unique visual style that fits the overall feeling of the video.
If you are turning this into a series then I would suggest making it show each pairs journey (or trio or however many, I suggest pairs mainly) and possibly showing how they each took different routes, or faced different challenges.
If that is not what you wish to do, or want to expand on this video first then I would suggest adding voices for at least emotional sense.
What i am trying tosay is that even if the characters do not say anything recognisable as words at least have them convey emotion, this would greatly enhance the effect of various scenes (E.G. just after the fighting scene when (I am assuming) Vito sees (I am assuming) Wilhelm dancing on the table then anger would fit there, then soon after in the scene when he falls to the ground then sadness, sorrow and regret. When (I am assuming) Vito wakes up then Wilhelm should be sounding sad then happy when Vito wakes up.

God, this flash is amazing. I first saw it when it was uploaded to vimeo, and immediately fell in love with it. It has great animation, a simple yet profound story, and tells a story without the need of voice actors (well, at least a minimal amount). All in all, this is probably the best original work I've seen thus far in 2013, and other animators will probably be hard pressed to best it later. This is the first review that I have ever submitted, simply so I could attest to it's greatness.
