Hilarious animation, 10/10

Inspirational!

You're a great artist, I'm definitely going to have to lurk around your other submissions!

I felt that the only thing that let this movie down was the music... I mean- it was quirky and interesting in a way, but I think something more serious and atmospheric would have suited it better- as well as some tactile and visceral sound design to really bring all these cool creatures to life

Anyway- very good work here.

Gotta take things to the next level.

I think what you have here is something that has a great deal of potential.

Some of the jokes didn't strike me very well, but for the most part your sense of humor is entertaining enough... And considering I'm a comedy nazi, I'm sure there are people out there who just laughed their asses off at this entire thing

Anyway. The artwork and animation is good, and the music too is of a high quality

The only problem I have with it all is the lack of consistency. The voice acting, sound effects and music are all in very heavy contrast with one another

After hearing low-bitrate voice recordings, it sounds bizarre to suddenly have super-high quality music slamming out in full stereo, and much louder than everything else

The sound effects too are quite varied in this manner

I think you should spend some time thinking about how you can create a production which feels like a 'single entity' rather than appearing as a bunch of random media mashed together under the premise of a flash series

Obviously recording all of your voices in high quality is quite difficult, as it requires not only you, but everyone else to have decent recording equipment

I might suggest investing in some decent gear and doing all the voice-acting locally, rather than over the internet. This also means you can more actively direct how you want your voice actors to perform your script (though this current cast didn't do a bad job :)

As for music; try and get one dude to do it all, and in a way which fits in seamlessly with your art style. For the most part the music fit in ok.. But I think what you should be aiming for is music that is the audio equivalent of your visuals, if you understand me? There should be such a disparity

So yes. Overall I enjoyed what you've made here and appreciate that there are people out there putting the time and effort in to bring things like this to realization!

Keep up the good work, but also consider my suggestions...

Great game IMO

I was expecting something rather shitty and entirely based on the novelty of this movie; but this is actually very fun. Its tough to make something which is simple, yet challenging- and I loved the art too...

Great job!

Failed to Load Joint Data

I won't vote because there is clearly some error on my side of things.

If it helps you out at all, I'm using Google Chrome and have the latest Flash player installed.

Best of luck with future projects! Hope my input helps in some way..

iamgrimreaper responds:

Hmmm.. Maybe it's a problem with google chrome. But thanks anyways. Be sure to check out my NG Chat coming soon.

Sweet.

Great work here, I really dug this game, even though this sort of brawler format doesn't usually do it for me. The art was great, and the gameplay was fun. The music also was well suited

I wish I had more to say! Keep up the good work :)

Enjoyable

I liked this.. I'll have to check out your other tracks :)

Guitars and synths were blended well enough, which is a tough thing to do. I loved the melody that came in at around 1min

Drums were nice too. I felt they could have been a bit busier- but thats just personal taste :)

Keep up the good work

Very nice

What else can I say? I loved it :)

There isn't a whole lot of feedback i can offer you, as you clearly know the genre and love doing what you do

The synth lead part sort of jumped out at me out of nowhere, then got totally crushed underneath the drums that came in afterward.. So I suppose be careful with limiting/compressing everything masterwise (wasnt too bad anyway).

Perhaps try spreading the synth really hard-stereo, so you have room in the center for all the main action, and all the tonality and atmosphere is to the sides? idk- these are all minor issues which don't really matter whole lot, cause the track is still totally badass

best of luck with finishing your cd!

Great

I don't really like any of the Industrial work on NG, but you are an exception...
This is really good, the development didn't wear thin, but got stronger as it went.

The only thing I would suggest is a dominant melody. The song builds up, but doesn't really break into anything. There is definately something cool going on with your bassline and supporting instruments, but they need a final element to complete the mix.
Otherwise, drumwork and such was fantastic.

Keep up the great work :)

Sephora responds:

Yeah the main melody is probably hard to recognize, there is one slightly. I focused on the beats (mostly), speed, and overall build-up...etc.
Thanks for the review! :)

Wow

I thought it was a shopped' photo
But I bet you get that alot :P

And your friend is hot.

ChaosProdigy responds:

I received a couple PMs asking whether or not it was just photoshopped, but it's not. It's just that I might've overdone the adjustments for the contrast.

I could always post up the untampered drawing at anytime. And thanks for the compliment. She is!

Excellent

I've only seen 2 of your submissions and I'm a fan :D

Looking forward to more

Rikimaru-Azlar responds:

Bloody hell, thanks stoog, what praise

Wow

You totally did this by accident!

But its quite awesome. I'm DROWNING in it!
