My final university project. I kept most of it a secret until the last day of class.

As a side note, it's been a while since I've posted anything here. I don't know how often I'll use this account, but it felt right to share this project on Newgrounds somehow.

You are kinda of a genius bro good job

I feel like the top of my head has been blown off!

Wow. Not at all what I expected. The fusion of animation styles certainly gave it a lot of depth. Also, the whole experience itself was quite a trip.

Made me smile and laugh throughout. Nothing in a while has done that for me

2D meets 3D... how didn't I notice that as soon as he climbed out the tunnel! The two worlds merge pretty well after all, but then, the turns it takes... that darkness. That light. The content rating of modern content... it leaves me a bit confused. If I should take it as comedy. Or take the message as it's presented. If I prefer the old styles or the new styles, like comparing black and white and color... each one seems to have their own advantage. Reading comics in black and white you felt like they lost a lot of their technique and detail when they started getting colored in. Like when images turned to video, you realize a lot of the imagination you needed to apply disappeared in the process. With each transformation of the norm a part of us changes too. But we always appreciate the benefits of the new as they seem to outweigh the old benefits simply because of their transformative nature. Bigger resolution. Better quality. Improvements that seem impossible to refute, even with the charms of the old...

And yet with 2D and 3D. The difference between dimensions. How to compute. Is it really 2D when the room is seen from a 3D angle? Is it more than a texture, or a style? What about VR? What about 4D? What about comparing sound to visuals, 1D versus 2D? What about the future? Where are we going? What have we gained? All the questions this seemingly simple thing opens up to...

And did you keep it a secret for the impact it might have had, or just for a surprise?

This was... transformative. Entertaining, creative, but also just on a whole other spectrum of the arts. Beyond just breaking that fourth wall. It seems to be breaking down the very fabric of our being, somehow. Simple as it is. Just the one thing though it may be. It's so much more. Need to let this sink in a bit. Trying to come to a conclusion here is like trying to walk through a brick wall. Like a character in a comic trying to break out of the panel he's been boxed into, just having been made aware that the panel is there. You can't really imagine what's on the other side. You only know the dimension you live within. Yet if you know it's there it's all the more aggravating that the revelation seems to be just out of reach. This is some next level stuff...

I'm glad you posted this here.
