So this was pretty entertaining, One thing I do wish you did was take this into other scenes not just the same scene but I do understand why, the head animation could have been somewhat smoother and I have to say the voices are pretty good and some things were entertaining on this but also needed more excitemeant to it.

That was actually really good. I was trying to find anything I could criticize you about, like the duplicated arms but even that wasn't very bad. This is my kind of humor and I think Robert D would agree that this was pretty much perfect. I'm surprised somebody from Toronto has this much talent or that somebody from America knows this much about Toronto. This could have been stick figures and still frames and the writing and voice recordings would still get you a 4.5/5 from me. Good. Very Good!

Thanks! Glad you liked it.

Excellent writing! The characters emote themselves clearly through dialogue, and the vocal talent does a lot to bring out their exaggerated aspects. I think the obvious critique comes down to visuality. Overall, the action that takes place is inconsequential to the dialogue being exchanged-- one character walks off screen, holds a knife, and kneels behind a counter, another taps on a phone. I wonder if it would have been a more polished project if it were presented as an audio drama, complete with sound effects to signal the characters' movements rather than the stiff Flash-style animation.

Regardless, you landed on the front page for a reason, and I think those previously mentioned aspects leave a great impression on your audience. Like I said, I thought the writing and acting where exemplary-- topical and logical to boot.

RocketAdrift responds:

Thanks for your kind words! We're always working on making the animation better.

Is it safe for me to say I have had all three conversations with the people I live with on a regular basis for the past two years. (In a desire to not ever have to live my life like I did from 2007-2015 I threw away my credit cards and have been living on cash value alone, that means forget pay-pal.)
Anyway I ask my friends that have invested in Bitcoin and what their "Rate of Return," is and they look at me with "Hipster Eyes," and I feel myself turning into Kirsten.

I can identify with Kirsten a lot.

RocketAdrift responds:

Glad it's relatable for you. It's one of the things we were going for.
