A step in a new direction.
If I were to rate this as a game, it would score far lower than what I'm giving it. But to be fair and objective, I will not hold that against this piece of work.
Once again it's incredible to see such fine art make its way into the realms of interactivity. The visuals were completely mesmerising. The simple colour scheme worked splendidly around this world you tried to create. The silhouettes and shadows blended very well with the rest of the art. It's a joy to simply look at the world you have created.
While the story itself is pretty cliche, it does not really feel that way in this. The presentation did certainly override the fact that this is an old story - retold in a unique style. The music complimented very well too.
There are some weak spots in the whole ensemble. I would dare say poetry isn't your forte. It was an ambitious attempt to capture that style of storytelling, but it's not strong enough to match the art and music. It feels almost like a let down because the writing wasn't on par with the rest of the flash. Because this is more like an interactive movie rather than a game, it allows viewers to focus more on the writing because that's the whole point of it - to hear or see or read the story.
I'm not going to mention how this lacked 'gameplay' because I'm not really complaining. Delving into this created world is a pleasure in itself. But I will ask you to seriously consider using this style and art to create a real point and click adventure. It would definitely join the ranks of some of my favourites like Hansel and Gretel and Little Wheel. It has huge potential of making it as a great game engine.
Either that, or consider teaming up with some really solid writing and creating a brand new interactive story for us to enjoy.
I am thoroughly pleased at exploring your created world. I urge you to do more.
