Black Crystal - Episode Prologue: "Lighting the Spark"

Share Collapse

The first ever episode of Black Crystal is here!

Black Crystal is an independent original project I've been working on since 2013. I have slowly developed the story, the characters, and the world through the first 3 years of pre-production, before I finally started animating this since last year. After a very long time of working non stop, the very first episode is finally finished!

This is honestly just a taste of what is to come for this series. This marks the very beginning both in terms of the story as well as what we can do with it as a production, because we know we can do so much better if we had the time and budget to keep improving with each episode.

So if you want to see the possibilities for the future of this project, please consider supporting us on Patreon, or even a one time donation on Ko-fi if you can not commit to a monthly payment. The production costs for this first episode were entirely paid out of pocket, and obviously that can't continue forever, which means this project will die without a proper budget. This is why it is entirely in the hands of fans and supporters to make sure this project might one day reach a real ending. Please help us see this story to its completion!

I like the fact that some parts are like a pixelated fighting game. I makes you feal like it's a rpg like dnd and what not. I do love the charters and. I got on to the story rather quick. I can't wait for the next one
