The Kingdom of Loathing reference was awesome!
Keep up the good work!
I've only got a couple of suggestions:
1) Some of the sound effects, Goomba's footsteps, for example, repeat too often and too loudly, I'd suggest getting a cyble of three or four very similar sound effects instead of one over and over and turn down the volume a bit.
2) It looks a little awkward when Goomba uses his feet as his hands, the goombas the in the games (most notably, Mario Party series) manipulate and hold things much like Homestar Runner from the internet series of the same name, looks like telekeineses with a limit of arm's lenth. It would smooth out the action a bit, and leave his feet free for running and crazy acrobatics.
I thought it said it was about "Comunism" at first
...So I didn't get it untill I re-read the description >_<. I'm not too fond of the doodle-style of the movie, but I really enjoyed the overall plot and presentation of the peice. Also, the lack of sound effects, while most likely an artistic choice, left the movie feeling a little empty (for lack of a better word).
Another part I liked was when the Mushroom-shaped-kid was following the Blue-kid as he searched for the ball, I thought you did a nice job of building tension there.
The quality is high, but controlls are real floaty
The visuals and sound are terriffic, and the Melee-identical menu is a very nice touch, but the controls are so floaty and unresponsive that they're quite nearly broken.
But tighten that up and you'd have an A+ game for sure, the control are the one and only thing that mess it up, but that's a very big "one thing".
It seems to bug out right after the first dialouge
I keep walking to the right (following the arrow) and nothing happens.
Also, the hand-drawn, "ed, edd, and eddy" look just looks thrown togehter, draw it a bit more carefully next time so it doesn't look qui-i-i-ite as twichy. also, using the spacebar to grab things slows down the pace, since you have to take your hand off the arrow keys to reach it, I'd suggesst the right "ctrl" button next time (or WADS and surrounding keys)
A neat little gadget.
...That about sums it up actualy.
