Not good, not bad
The drawings weren't bad but I woulda liked some more animation. The oddity of the scenario and tone of words coulda have been greatly emphasized with gestures and expressions.
The ambience was a little to loud so I kept debating turning my speakers up to hear or turning them down to avoid being taken by the bass. Not harsh, but I noticed it.
Not an ICP fan so, while I was very tempted to skip this, I appluad you on sparing us a musical number.
It's not bad, but there's a lot you can do with this animation to really make it funny. Think like Invader Zim and how expressive the characters are in their most insane moments. It really makes the scene.
Good effort though.
Atrocity to the atrocious
I love southpark. Why? Cuz it has 2 levels of comedy. Stupid fart jokes which we all secretly love and the intellectual humor buried deep below its surface away from condemning right wingers who don't see their own reflection in parody.
However...you have failed miserably to capture the latter and even the easy to achieve firstly mentioned.
Taking sound clips and pictures you didn't make and tweeking them is always risky when it comes to an animation. Using them appropriately takes time, talent, and planning...also a direction...this had none.
So yeah...don't do that again...
I like South Park also.
I wasnt atempting to make anyone actualy think this was a REAL episode! Thanks for pointing out the unbelievabley obvious.
Good, but lacking in the original
I love this song, what's more I love the original music video for this song. While most of yours was just a copy of that it was still done well, but coming close to the quality of the original is asking a bit much, so it does lower yours. However the animation was clean (and not tweened to death! yay!) and the graphics were decent. Nothing incredible but there were no shortcuts taken.
I feel to make this better though you should drop the demon parody since grasping how good it was in the original would be a pain in the ass. Despite good work.
A good concept of using logic to cause a series of chain reactions...though until you see them in action they don't make a lot of sense. Include more rational clues as trail and error became far more efficient solution...which it shouldn't be.
Also...maybe animate a little more in depth...
good music :/
Hated it but...
Always constructive criticism from me.
Graphix: characters were all right but the land scapes and floating arm were pretty bad. Also the random jpeg images were bad taste too.
Gameplay: Point and click has always been terribly drab unless there's a real twist. That rule is no different here. Simply clicking a random object in an image without any complexity besides a bad memory game is not fun.
Sound: Horrendously annoying loop. Change it NOW!
Mediocrity at it's Best
Ok I'm gonna repeat some of the criticism but also add a constructive touch with it, because I feel you had something.
Obviously the sound was below par but it may be all you had to work with. Also the voices were done poorly. In order to fix this stand a little bit back from the mic and for the voices OVER do them so you can get a real character out of it, whether or not its accurate.
As for the graphics, they were decent. They were basically recognizeable so that's a good start. Add contrast to help, they felt a little flat. If you really want to make it nice add highlights too, but those are a bit tricky.
Now I liked your scenario set up but I felt a little short ended. Make it either longer or have more of a story to it. Focus more on the humor because whether or not you get the length or satisfaying story down, you need to have some punchlines in there so we can remember this thing ever existed in the next hour.
Also the topic is a bit hard to be accepted. Generally when fake wrestling and humor are combined its usually only accpetable in the form of an attackagainst wrestling. Maybe alter your course or find some relation that will have a better connection with the audience.
Good try though, but more effort is needed.
If it wasn't for illwillpress this would be the most successful example of 'mediocrity' on the site.
Yeah, still need some more experimenting with the sounds but its sounding nicer. I liked your use of drums in this one a lot though.
Yeah, I tried many drum beats with the second one but none of them fit.
Needs some more to it...
This song caught my eye becuase I just sent in a cover of the same exact song just now. Check it out if you can.
Now for the review:
Need to expermient a little bit more with FL studios sounds, I liked the harmony, but wasn't feeling the lead synth. Also drums and some added bits of your own doing would make it feel more personalized.
BTW, what's the harmony? I can't find it, All I can find are piano writes of the lead.
It's the Song of Storms from Zelda. You can easily get all the tunes and stuff with an midi file.
It's missing something
I liked this alot, but with those quick snares I kept feeling like the music was prepping to explode into battle style music. This would sound amazing with it's slow daunting melody combined with fast paced drums.
Thanks for your review dude, I didn't want to make it battle style, I wanted it to be a dark, somewhat atmospheric piece.
