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:

Also find us on Twitter and Facebook :)

I first saw this a few months ago, and it completely blew me away. It's incredible how rich a world and detailed a story you were able to make with no dialogue whatsoever. Basically, this is incredible and I will follow the work of those that made this.

The only thing needs improvement is that you're female side characters were a little flat.

I saw this the first day it was put onto Vimeo. Glad to see it spreading to Newgrounds. This is and has been my favorite animated short of all time, and I'm so glad that you guys are turning it into a series. I wish I could have pledged the highest amount on Kickstarter (or any amount; I'm a poor art student in college, haha). You guys are doing an amazing job and I can't wait to see more of what you have to offer.

This speaks for it self, but let me share with you my thoughts. First I just want to get this out of the way, I dont like the sexual references very much, sometimes I feel like it is unnecessary, but thats just me. Now, with that said, this was awesome, pure quality, really loved the idea of the rite of passage, and how you can tell a history without the need of a language, is really remarkable, it makes it universal, which is something to imitate. The only way you would not like this is if its not for you, because this is something of undeniable quality. Awesome job.
