Reviews for "Somnium"


just wow!


Very good, and interesting. Nice quotes as well


That was Beautiful! The idea & imagery are stunning.

Moderately good

I though the graphics on the middle couple "levels" were really good, especially the third one. The way the dude progressed was kind of cool, however, the final part before he wakes up was pretty subpar, which is when he should have looked best. I didn't like the youtube style ending at all, that destroyed the feeling that the rest of the movie had. I did however, like that you tied it all together with the books and MacBeth and whatnot. Overall it was pretty good, I hope to see from you.

"wow." indeed.


For me, someone with chronic insomnia, this is just what I can relate to. Not being able to sleep for more than 2-3 hours a night (and your body still needing a rest for about 6) means trying to think of stuff to ponder. Often, totally random stuff comes to mind, and that is exactly how I feel like I can relate to this flash.

Thus, I feel that the idea was totally awesome. The music worked fine for me, and so did the graphics (no shiftyness at the high quality setting). The lack of any action did not bother me whatsoever either.

However, what does keep it down, is the animation itself. It didn't show enough movement for me to give it a 10/10. It was actually closer to an 8, but I'm in a good holiday mood right now xD.

So yeah, keep at it. I liked this very much indeed.
