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:

I'm not saying that it was pretty awesome...but it was PRETTY AWESOME

So first of all I want to say that when I saw this video for the first time five months ago, I was blown away by your animation, your style, your imagination, and your attention to detail. After distancing myself from Newgrounds for a while, though, I realized something. Absolutely nothing has changed. Never once have I regretted adding this to my favorites, and assuming I don't go completely raving stark MAD, I never shall.
On the other hand, I somehow feel like some of the magic of your magnificent creation is lost on most of your audience. I read the last 50 pages worth of reviews, and found only one mention of the true ending, which really drives home the incredibility of your writing and the whetting of your viewers' interest. So, really, what I have to say is not so much a complaint about you personally as the relation of your audience; a simple query that you need not answer.
How many people watching do you think stuck around after the credits, and do you think that distinct detail was a waste on deafened ears?

It ran smooth, had an amazing art style, and was just overall probably the best thing I've ever seen on Newgrounds!

Wow, it's great to see this here. Easily one of my favorite shorts of the past few years, if not ever, everything about it is just awesome. Thanks for the link to the kickstarter too, good luck with reaching the goal~!

No joke this is one of the best newgrounds animations I've ever seen. I love the timing, pacing, vibes, music, backgrounds, and lighting. Seriously - dat lighting. Such awesome colors - and awesome painted backgrounds.
