August 25th, 2004, at 3:21 in the afternoon. Two years ago I started this crazy little flash movie series about a buncha' kids who just wanted to have fun, but then ended up being thrown into things bigger than them all. As I've often said before, there are times where I'm not always proud of WHAT I've done with the series. In retrospect, it's a bunch of sprite flash movies, text only, with barely any actual voice acting except on a few exceptions, annoying buttons, and a plot that when you think about it is really just a different telling of .hack// and the Megaman.EXE series with some Dragonball thrown in...made by a guy who represents himself as a white kirby with a link hat. Because of that, I as the creator have had mixed feelings on these movies I've been doing for the past couple of years. But there've always been some things I HAVE been proud of. One, any sort of originality that I'm able to put it that makes it not just a complete ripoff of pre-existing material. Two, I've had many people that I'm good storyteller. Among the many attributes of the series, the story and storytelling style is something that I truly DO feel proud of among all else... Three, lastly and most importantly, I can't take all of the credit for how far I've gotten at this point, because I'm thankful to have so many people helping me. All of my voice actors, all of my sprite artists, the music contributors, anyone who's given me feedback on whatever site or in whatever form you can, and even the people who've sparked such little ideas that ended up being big deals in the series at this point in time.
So this picture is dedicated to all of you guys, with the characters that I've all gotten attached to in some way or another. Whether they be based on my first or latest internet friends, people who I considered 'enemies' at any point, or even those made out of thin air...
Alpha: Ultimate Creature II, Kirbopher, Flamegirl, Gamecrazed, Gamecrasher, Nailock, Zetto, Ruri, Giga, Rob*, Saturndiva, White Queen, Sniperwave, Tamerlisa, Foreva, Hamstar, Ericho, Thunder256, Shogun, Tsuzuku, T-Bones, Grounder, Raccoon, Sojojo, Blingbling, Ravenfreak, Splat, Demon King, Neomutant, Simdragon, Tormentros, Torben, Sk8rboi, Dustbunny, Anidoug, PaperAceChase, Darkblazer, Kinetix, Dikayes, MysteryX, Orbit, AKAKK, Webmaster, Kindarspirit, Blitz128, Rubyrulz, EXE, Phaxal, Phetus. Counted 49 characters? There's a 50th one in there, but you can't see them. It'll make sense in the future, trust me.
...and so, I can only hope that I can finish the entire series for all of you guys to see, because I DO have an conclusion for the story. We're still far away from it, so I want to continue as much as I can, as long as you guys will stay here with me. So that's what I ask. To anyone who's reading this anywhere, just tell me, even if you weren't here from the very beginning, what do you really think of the series and where it's gotten at this point?
