thank you for your kind words! I really appreciate your feedback :)

In a black and white world, every angle is more sharp.

The artstyle is very interesting, and the animation is pretty cool. The story is also quite interesting. I suppose the old man wants to bring color and meaning to the world, that's why it's called "Absorbed". The main character becomes absorbed in the mystery and the laws of the world seem to slowly be breaking down, with glitches and the main character slowly going insane. The old man has color in his eyes, which is interesting. It seems the protagonist starts to see the world through the eyes of the old man. However, this change doesn't have a clear cause, and at first I wasn't even sure what the meaning was. The thing with the teeth was especially confusing. I guess it was just supposed to represent horrific visions in the main character's broken mind. Overall, a pretty interesting concept and style, but maybe the main character's breakdown could have had a clearer cause, since I doubt the explanation is just "It's magic".
