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:

second full 5 stars ever this was simply perfect with the story and the animations and lets not forget the epic music and sounds

love it!

To this day this is still one of my favorite animations. It has a lot of things that people seem to leave out in their work too often, the most important thing being the storytelling. Animation and other art forms alike (sequential, interactive story telling games, you name it) can be drawn beautifully, but if the story falls flat then so does the overall piece itself. Each main character has a well defined silhouette, personality, and unique attitude; how they walk, act, their expressions, etc. I think that the fact that they don't /speak/ but are still able to tell a very distinct story through their actions is A+++++.

Honestly, this is amazing!
Once I finish learning code i can (with your permission) make a full scale game of this!

Regarding the animation,

It is amazing, Despite the low frame rate it utilizes a lack of words by expressing feelings with actions.

The low frame rate proves that it may have been hand drawn and not computer animated on a program that basically shows movement without drawing every single frame by hand.

In short, purely amazing.
