PREPARE YOURSELVES HUMANS FOR SOON I WILL BE AMONGST YOU

Great animation, fitting music, fun to look out for differences, and humorously fitting voicing and jokes makes this a solid flash.

thanks!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

There are two things to comment on- the animation and the themes.

I'll start with the former. Admittedly, you are not the world's best animator in terms of detail. However, your style conveys more than enough of what it needs to. Going into huge amounts of detail- getting every little thing just right, having amazing lighting/textures, etc., would make everything look nicer, but honestly it wouldn't add to the story. Your style, on the other hand, is minimalistic and thematic in terms of everything- shapes, objects, even (especially?) colors. Thus, while other flashed perhaps catch the eye better, this conveys what it needs to- and very powerfully.

Now let's look at some themes, shall we? Going into the video without reading the description at all (and while pretending I don't know you/have never talked to you about the content) gives us an amazing overall feeling of being lost. There's a lot of sorrow involved, as well. The music is supportive of this, especially with the much-repeated line, "promises broken". The character is doing some obviously symbolic things- clutching a puzzle piece, jumping off a ledge, assembling a puzzle, being sucked through a black hole- these give me a feeling of needing answers and the truth, and looking for them at any cost, but finding it shocking and perhaps compelling/life changing, as represented by the black hole. The answers contained in the puzzle of truth have left you lost in the arctics, a cold, unforgiving place. It is immensely clear that you're not a fan of what you've found. After reading the description (and not pretending I don't know you anymore), everything matches up, though we get a new feeling as well- that you've come to acceptance. This drives some very hard themes fully home.

All in all, easily a 5/5. A no-brainer for a 5, even.
