What can I say about this?
In 2004 I watched "Smile!". I was only discovering the part of Newgrounds that held real pieces of art. It was a long time ago, but that animation had enough effect on me that as soon as I started watching Lucky Day Forever I realized it was you again. I was thrilled with expectation but the movie proved to go far beyond anything I could expect. So... what can I say about this? No words would make it justice, so I won't try to describe the experience of watching it. All I can say is thank you, for showing me the potential of the flash world and, 8 years later, showing me how far can it go and evolve.
The best flash movie ever produced.
This should be the flash with most views and highest ponctuation on Newgrounds.
I understand that around here the stuff that draws the attention is the silly comedies filled with random humour and violence. Don't get me wrong, I love the comedies, I'm a huge fan of Egoraptor, HappyHarry, JohnnyUtah and all the other guys, but no other flash has this level on composition and production.
Brackenwood series has the quality of something animated by Disney, Pixar or other major company. It is extremely professional in every techincal aspect.
It has the most fluent animation you can find. Evry frame is super produced, the backgrounds are so complete and beautiful, even in the scenes that only appears for a couple of seconds. The colors used are ideal for each moment, setting the atmosphere just right. It will never feel out of place. The lightning and shadowing is so much worked that I keep thinking how much effort Adam puts in every drawing. From Bitey's hair to the grass, you can tell that everything got Adam's attention to the max.
The soundtrack is the most incredible thing to be listened on a flash movie. Even big compositors are part of it. It is just perfect in every aspect.
Technical stuff aside, the story is so compelling, you create empathy for the characters. Bitey has such strong personality even without speaking, so is every other creature of Brackenwood.
The storytelling is close to a poem or a painting. It has a extremely high artistic value.
The world of Brackenwood is so rich and so much full of potential that sometimes I feel there's no justice in being only a flash file. This belongs in a big screen, I'm deadly serious.
I'm looking forward to the rest of the series and some new merchandise.
I expect only the best and wish the greatest of luck to Adam Phillip's projects.
He's a great artist of many levels, a visionary in the flash world that I'm sure will go much beyond in the future.
And I keep on being a huge and mesmerized fan.
I never played Zelda, but
this is pretty nice, even that I haven' played Zelda and might have lost the joke, pun, reference or whatever
But I can still revirew based on everything else and it was good. The sound is really funny and addicting, the animation is smooth and sincronized, the drawing and coloring are very good.
I'll give it a nine and 5/5. It still is short and misses a little more scenes to give some variation.
Nica job, keep it up
There's not one thing I don't like about this shor
The atmosphere put into this is simply amazing. Dramatic, twisted, morbid, deep, noir, insane, psychodelic. Is incredibly hard to describe what exactly has such appeal on me, but I know I loved it.
Sure everyone can put several interpretations, many being complex, but I think there's no need for such, because looking at this with a simpler point of view aready makes it impressive by it's own surrealism and deepness.
Whatever is the message, doesn't affect the fact that this is a great Flash work.
To be honest, not so good...
I was disapointed with this. Though there were about 3 good artists, there was soo many bad drawers. Simple concepts that were poorly done and looked like classical 10 year old drawings.
Actually a bunch of them all look like each other, because they all follow the "bad drawer that truns to anime" style.
My advice is that they start working on this, instead of making silly anime-like draws and think it's ok.
6/10 for the work, intention, music and good artists
Way too short but it was actually good.
The animation was good enough. Background too simple with those buildings, but I liked the clouds. It's well draw too. The little guy reminds me of the Cyanide and Happiness characters.
Those are the points why I'm saving this submission instead of blamming it. But still, it's way too short.
You should take your time, don't rush, make something a little longer and submit for us here to see. It would be very nice to see more stuff from you.
The Kickflip part was little slow compared to the rest of the animation, and maybe that's a effect that you were aiming for, but it doesn't seem to suit so well, at least in my opinion.
So, yeah, you have potential. Keep going.
Experience makes the difference.
Yep, I'll like if someone tells everything what he/she thinks, I'll make something long, of course!
Jeez... the ending was the best
And people keeps coimplaining about it
All the fun was in the ending
Great animation, great draws, great sounds and great humour -even if some people don't understand it-
Excellent work there
Nothing less than absurdly incredible...
I love your style. Confabulation quickly became one of my favorite animations of all time and this new one, surely don't let me down. It is great...
I like how the song add and hiperative tune. The telesinisics moves part is fantastic. Real nice gore effects and the hand following the moves was awesome!!
I love the little alien, hope he gets to appear more.
Well, it's an awesome flash work. Very well done and clean.
I'm already a fan of your Madness style and hope you go along for more episodes.
Good luck with all your future works and keep it up!
My volume was loud as fuck at the screaming part, but for some reason I just start to laugh the shit out of it.
Really funny and you made a great work on creating an atmosphere with lights and shades.
Sound was good too and the graphic part was very well done.
Anyway, great submission
Waiting for your future works. Good luck
This is justo too amazing to be even reviewed
Holy Christ man, that was incredible. Awesome drawing and colouring. Light and shade was perfect. Smooth movements and awesome song.
That's was epic...
No doubt 10/10 and 5/5 stars and I would surelly vote 100 stars if possible
Keep it up
