This was quite funny for a short piece.
The audio was nice. I like how all the voices were clear and there was no background interference. As for the audio being used in the robot began to sing, what was the song called? Also found the mother to be a bit funny yet pushy at the same time with her voice.
The art was great. The only part I would have changed is when Milkshake was walking. Instead of him being that big, he could have been slimmer so his back does not show an excess amount of fat. Unless; however, he is meant to be just a fat teenager/child. Another thing I would have changed is the plate at the ending. Instead of the pancakes looking like they may have had slight mold on them, the saliva coming from his mouth should have been transparent.
The story seemed simple enough to follow: Milkshake woke up a bit late and ended up missing the bus... or did he? I question it given at the end it shows him drooling and having not gotten up from the table at all. Is his mom giving him drugs to sedate him? The part where the robot began to sing was really nice. If you had extra time you should have expanded onto the song a bit and had sing some more.
Overall, the saliva on the pancakes at the end should have been slightly transparent. Really nicely done flash!
Dude thanks for the awesome review.
As for the music, I made it all, and yea I had to cut it short because the project was due like 3 hours after I finished it (not including the guitar audio I did and sound effects)! As far as the art, i'm really trying to improve, and i'm glad you liked it. The walk cycle was seriously about 30 different keyframes and yea, he's supposed to be chubby, but I did notice inconsistencies :/. Again with the ending, it was a bit rushed, but I did attempt to have his saliva transparent and alpha'd.
As for the story, the mom gave him drugs because he is a chubby, ecstatic, imaginative young boy, and sadly, that is what doctors give to people with ADHD rather then channeling it in a different form. Thanks anyway for the review!
This was a masterpiece!!
The animation I must say is flawless. The way Batman licks his own mask as he gets ready to eat Pikachu is just marvelous! Alright but seriously, the animation is much better than the original version. The knife, Pikachu, the carrot, and Batman are all much better in detail. The fork and knife having the odd shape to them seems off. I think sticking to just having a round tip at the bottom than jagged looking would have been much better.
Cutting into the Pikachu it was nice seeing some detail as the skin/fur comes off the Pikachu and Batman even indulges in eating the fur of Pikachu as if it was nothing! The carrot looked better as well. Would have been nice if Pikachu and the carrot both had some steam coming from them if they had been cooked unless the blood from Batman's mouth indicates it is being eaten fresh.
The story here is sad and short. It seems to be the tragic tale of a recently caught and killed Pikachu (most likely by Alfred) being put on a table with a carrot up its ass for Batman to enjoy. Batman then proceeds to lick his mask with some saliva sticking to it. He then proceeds to stick the fork into Pikachu's side and cutting at it with the fork. He then eats the morsel of flesh that he had just cut off from Pikachu.
The music used was great and added some atmosphere to the loop. However I feel more sound should have been used. For instance, Batman licking his mask could have been accompanied with a licking sound. As he cuts into Pikachu, possibly the sound of a knife cutting against something soft. Lastly, for Batman eating, the sound of him chewing on the meat would have been nice.
Overall, improvement parody of the original, nice work. Have fun with future loops and animations!
This has potential to be better.
The animation itself looks nice, the guy could look smoother if you took some time working to sculpt out the face and making it rounder. Same thing can be said for the hair. Spend more time and try to make it look more cartoonish rather than having spikes being there in the back. The kitchen and outside looked fine.
The sound effects used were nice. However, I feel there could have been more sounds such as the guy walking to get the glass of water then the sound of drinking the water. For the outside, you could use some natural outside sounds or a bit of wind.
As for the story, should be a bit longer. Saying this as even though it looks that the spider will eat the lion, it could just as easily be befriending it.
Overall, practice and you'll keep getting better.
Review Request Club
thank you for the review
This was rather nice to look through. I even spotted the few interviews I had done there as well. Only thing I would suggest changing about the Codex is a few more medals. Aside from that, it's very much like walking through a little time capsule and reading the interviews in a new way (via this wonderful interactive flash).
Thanks man. For the review, but also the interviews :)
This game is rather fun and simple. The music being cheery helps with the overall atmosphere of keeping the game fun. The only thing I would even recommend changing about this game is maybe having the music change a bit when a new area in the sky is reached.
This was entertaining.
The story itself seems to be that the person has been stranded and living there alone for two years then driven in mad in the time span of two to three days by either a ghost or hallucination. Ultimately ending up in him going insane getting some blood on the walls and his suit at the end with his helmet taken off at last.
Very simple. A couple of minor things I noticed that could be fixed very quickly, one being "it's" should be "is it". As in "Why is it so cold?". Another one, when it asks you to grab the green key so you can leave the base, why not allow the player to grab the red key and see what is inside the Infirmary? Could possibly answer where the ghost came from hopefully.
Then another thing I am curious about, what happened to the "Lunar Vehicle" key and why is there a Cryogenics key but no Cryogenics door in sight? Taken out at the last minute or just there for visual effect?
The minimal sounds heard in the background give a feeling of being there on the moon alone. It could be enough to drive someone insane after being on the moon alone for two years, unless perhaps the others died over the course of two years and John simply decided not to make note of it.
The "Aaaaaaaaaaaaah" echo and "Look behind you" seem a bit out of place for a game where none of the dialogue boxes get a voice for them. However, they still make the game more scary to play.
Overall, aside from a minor spelling error at one point and the question of what is in the infirmary, the game is great. Best played at night with lights off and headphones.
!Attention this response contains SPOILER!
=Wow, thank you for your excellent review, I saw you noticed a lot of details in the game and I appreciate this, it means you've played and you've committed to understand the history, many things will be revealed in the PREQUEL, however at the end John is possessed by the entity, here is the reason because John start to bleed, just like the other astronaut, in the station before the self-destruction John feels cold because the self-destruction was a hallucination, usually in scary movies like the movie "The Sixth Sense" before the ghost appears the protagonist feels cold , this means that the presence in the game entered in the space station and created a hallucination, in the end this is a game that you have to really understand, because there are hidden details in each scene!=
Thanks again for your review!! ;)
The intro sounds quite silent and gives more of an ambient feel. The bass also helps give that feel. Sounds like when the bass started there was a low filtering for it before the bass got really smoothed out.
At 0:45 I noticed the bass kicked in before the drums and main rhythm. Sounds a bit off to me. I would recommend moving the bass start to when the drums start so it won't sound messy when beginning.
The constant bass kicks combined with the bass rhythm reminded me of Gabberstag by Renard too. So I assume that style of music is called Gabber overall then right? Sounds like something to get people pumped up to.
The main synth rhythm was good. However, I feel a general change in rhythm from time to time would have been nice. Such as increasing or decreasing for a bit in notes.
Around 3:09 I begin to hear the synth picking up and having a nice powerful sound to it. Almost as if restarting the whole song or party and getting more people to join in on the fun. Then the secondary synth comes back and sounds quite smooth and nice.
The rest of the song sounded very smooth.
Overall, very interesting.
1) I don't remember having a bass with a low pass filter in this track...?
2) That's...not the bass. It's the same saw that's used for the melody. But yeah, should probably move it back a bit.
3) Constant bass kicks + little to no chord progression (essentially relying on the melodies) is Gabber (I think). And of course, I can't live without overused 4-chord progs adfjysiufg
No comment for points 5 - 6. :/
Thanks for the review!
I really like the synth at the start right off the bat. It has some reverb which makes me think of floating off in a pool of water as my sadness begins to fade into the water. Remembering the sad and happy times I have had with friends in the past.
The piano sounds beautiful and I really like the echo that is heard after each note. The claps and drum rhythm seem to make the song feel a bit more upbeat as in reminding the listener there are still happy memories and times to enjoy.
The song itself, has a wonderful surround sound to it. The only think I may recommend is possibly an ambient bass in the background if it is not already there. As to give the song much more atmosphere.
Overall, the song is beautiful. Would be a great song to listen to during those times one feels really sad and needs a song to make them feel better.
thanks for a great comment :))
This sound professional.
The voice at the start informs us that it is you voicing the characters.
I found the voices to be nice. However, I saw no reason to bleep out the word fuck for this unless this was meant to be animated. The mutant voice makes me think the person is possibly robotic in nature or a giant hulk like mutant.
Overall, aside from fuck being bleeped out, this was great.
This looks fantastic and would make a great desktop wallpaper as well. The only problem with this image is the lighting on her chest, to me it kind of looks like a face. Aside from that this piece looks fantastic!
This looks really nice. the only thing I can think of that would make this stand out more is if the background was moving. Such as having the logo heads moving diagonal, left to right, vice versa, etc. Would make this very nice and entertaining to look at.
The Zone logos are perfect and don't seem to be in any need of changing at all.
As for Zone herself, I kind of get the feeling the left side (of the image) of her shirt should be down a bit lower. Seems like it would fit a little more having one side down a bit farther than the other.
As for the tentacles, nice to see they have a bit of slime (or cum?) showing that she has her friend ready to play with her or whatever else Zone decides to draw up.
Overall, aside from my thoughts on her shirt. Looks fantastic!
Another great review SCTE3!, I thank you for the review and for the advice, are very useful and I'm glad you liked this design! :D
Took a moment to realize that stuff in the water was merely a reflection. Kind of laughed a bit at how they seem to be staring at the swim suit unsure of whether to be shocked at it or happy about it. Very nice artwork as usual.
