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

So I meant to write something immediately after I watched this. And honestly, I lost track of time and got distracted. But you know what? Any cartoon that makes me smile and sends shivers down my spine, even after watching it the fifth time today, deserves some sort of reaction from me.

This. is. amazing. The characters, the setting, the animation, the colors, EVERYTHING! It's like the hallmark animation of all roleplayers and RPGs everywhere! In the beginning, it felt obvious that it was going to be a "These two are reluctantly traveling together, but will soon become friends" kinda story, but you guys definitely took it a step further. Showing that they cared for each other more than just mere friends, and through nothing but actions, grunts, and wordless sounds! This is definitely the kind of stuff I love to see. And for it to be a series instead of a one time cartoon? Amazing. Just terrific.

I honestly have nothing to praise other than everything, and nothing to criticize. I suppose I could say that it'd be fun to see Vito and Wilhelm show much more different personalities and characteristics, maybe even show their pasts catching up to them. But I don't want to ruin the formula by suggesting too much. I'm sure you guys will know what's best for your own series.

I'm definitely bummed that I couldn't support your kickstarter (And maybe had my own RPG character in future stories) but you can definitely count on me being around in the future! Good luck!

That was fantastic, thoroughly impressed. Another example of a great story told with no words. The ability to depict so vividly an adventure and friendship in so little time is astonishing. Frankly, I'd feel proud to do so even if it took me many hours to show it. Great job on this work, and I'm glad to see quality of this magnitude here.

Where's that other half-star? This is probably one of the most original cartoons I've seen in a really long time! Wonderful animation, great music, a simple story with two likable characters. Damn, this thing pulls on my heartstrings so much that I'm amazed my heart hasn't ripped out of my chest and been dragged to Sun Creature Studios.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

There is nothing more to say it about, it's perfect already. You have an amazing team I hope we can see much more of your work in the future.
