0.1 huh, sounds like there's going to be a looot of episodes! :D So far it shows great promise, from the mysteriously intriguing main heroine/villian/stranger (?) to the overall slickness of animation, sound; everything. Feels there's little feedback I could give here, but I'm looking forward to whatever's coming next!


really good, so 5 stars from me.

I really like the art and the characters are great. Now this next part may sound harsh but, is there any possible way to increase the audio quality of the elf rogue? She sounds like she recorded with a toaster. Otherwise I love everything else about this flash. I love the speed potion on the blacksmith (I have something to talk to you about involving that I'll PM you.) Also the animations for the traps and lock breaking was really cool. I also like most of the characters in this. I need to see the rest of your series.

VerticalCircus responds:

Thank you so much for your support. It means alot.
Yes, the recording conditions for Cheapshot (the halfling character) were not ideal on the day and the second pass we did a month or so later just didn't have the same energy. Also it had been animated to this audio making ADR hard to get right. Especially as we're newbies to all this.
The point is that this is only the first. Everything will get better with time and practice.
Feel free to shoot a message this way, whenever. :)
