I don't know man. It was well constructed, I have no gripes about that. It was interesting seeing Earthbound sprites/tiles in a sidescrolling kind of perspective.
But this thing honestly made no sense. It's clearly something very personal and I think in a public format it doesn't translate well. Having something so serious alongside Earthbound pixel art made it seems like a joke almost; I felt like I was waiting for a punchline at the end because Earthbound is such a light-hearted and funny game.
I like your observations! While I certainly agree that the use of Earthbound sprites might suggest a joke, there is the very serious and touching underside to Earthbound which is not readily apparent, including the themes of love, friendship, and finding the Sword of Kings :).
I thank everyone who has written reviews so far. They've made me quite happy! Please keep them coming!
Another generic sprite movie. All of them are the same.
PS: Zooming extremely close onto something that's only like 20 pixels wide, looks retardedly bad.
I liked it a lot. The animation and art style/quality were top-notch. The plotline reminded me in a lot of ways of Toy Story or The Brave Little Toaster (old possession rejected by its owner, but later recovered)
Yep, I was hoping the Toy Story elements would come through! I haven't seen Brave Little Toaster yet, but somehow it made me think of that kind of movie.
The art was really interesting, I like the use of actual photos in conjunction with drawn art. It was pretty well done in that regard. I also liked the concept of traveling through a funhouse of sorts. The thing that confused/frustrated me a bit was the first exhibit about "Frankenstein the Monster"... I believe the monster had no name, Frankenstein is the doctor. So if anything it was "Frankenstein's Monster". It's really minor and I would've overlooked it, but the fact that you quiz it, and I picked the correct answer (no name) and got it WRONG is a bit frustrating. Don't quiz us on something you don't know.
Victor is Victor Frankenstein so in my quiz i asked about a victor name thats all!!!!!!!!!!!!
