This is my first movie submitted under the alias "BigSweatySchilling", and Its also the first time I have ever participated in madness day. This means a lot to me because when I was younger, the madness combat series, as well as the tributes to Madness combat are one of the biggest reasons why I had a Newgrounds account.

Making this movie was a huge rollercoster. I originally planned on submitting this on Madness day 2012, but things such as school, friends, family, work, and an unsatisfying feeling to this animation have prohibited me from releasing this for 2 years. I started working on this in November 2011, and I finished it in August 2014, I feel so much satisfaction at this very moment of typing this, hell, I am even nervous, my stomach has butterflies. I know that this is just a madness combat spin off, but I am still very proud of it, and I think the reason that is, is because I stuck with this bitch until the very end.

This takes place on a different part of Nevada, located away from where our heroes Hank, Sanford, and Diemos shoot the shit out of people. The timeline is set between Madness combat 7 Consternation and leads up to Madness combat 8 Inundation.

Also just to make sure none of you get comfused, the last 2 minutes of this animation are a flashback and it leads up to the events that happen at the beginning of this animation.

I hope you love it

Very good movie
The only "little" problem is the graphism.
Otherwise all perfect.

I like when an animation tries to poke an idea or a moral concept, even if it requires a little more text. It's rare. The ending sequence tying it to the beginning was well done.
What I think sticks out the most in the bad sense, #1 would be disproportional camera, #2 is that the combat is way too linear - it's like "make the main character move linearly and shoot, kill an enemy every 0.2 seconds." Aside from some specific downsides, you only have to improve as an animator in general. Congrats for putting it together.

What do you mean, is it the people getting tortured and hung?

I love it, Its reminds of the Madness series and the animation is smoother than I could ever do.

Gotta practice a bit on the drawing side but overall great stuff. Especially for your first submission.
