Edit: there seems to be playback and color issues when using Google Chrome. I think Chrome doesn't like mp4. I'd recommend watching on another browser or on mobile.

Edit: This is only supposed to be a trailer for my concept. I can't seem to find the option in project management to rename the video 'Planet Nutria Trailer'.

This is my first completed animation I've ever made. I did all the design, animation and music. My twin brother illustrated the backgrounds http://cody-art.tumblr.com . I also submitted it to the Games for Change Challenge 2014. I think it would help with the whole childhood obesity epidemic that's going on right now.

Ive been making music here for a while. I hope you guys don't think this animation is too lame or educational. Its supposed to be cool and funny. If you have any criticism, I would love to hear it.

Description: Planet Nutria is a proof of concept for a new animated series (and/or game franchise) that follows the epic journey of Apple and his friends. Harnessing the power of vitamins (magic) and minerals (weapons), they set out to reclaim the world of Nutria from the opposing forces of Junkland (junk food villains).

Really well thought out. The animation wasn't anything flashy but your art style works and the idea is so creative you forget about what's lacking in the animation. It almost makes me want to eat healthy...almost.

Is there part 2 of the story? or it is just a vague ending???

I think it's a rather fun animation but I also think you can try to focus on the negatives of the junk food through a darker perspective like apple watching one of his beloved friends getting killed by sodas acidic attacks (because sodas have a sugar content so high it's been known to be even corrosive) or the villain's using ground beef to take onion, tomato, pickles, and cheese to become cheeseburger and look like a giant mess of humanoid limbs like something out of a horror movie and so on (yah never know when fear can be a great motivator)

There are definitely darker sides to the story I haven't shown yet, maybe not as dark as your ideas. The intended target audience for this was younger kids, so murder might be too much. However I really like the idea of fusion characters and your beef idea, that might be really cool.

I don't think I could ever look at a bottle of Coke the same way ever again without seeing coke voldemort!! 0_o Anyway I found the animation was very good, a few tweeks here and there but nothing serious, I would've liked to see the fights between the others more but since this is a trailer I can live with that XD, keep up the good work and I hope to see more from you and your twin brother in the future XD

Dang,This is awesome i love the vivid colors & the characters
Please Make more!!!!!!!

Hypergon702 responds:

I will definitely make more of this. I'm just not sure how long or what form it will take. Whether it's a game or an animation or both, hopefully I can make something happen.
