This is a dream project of mine, but it is definitely not high on my priority list with all the projects I've already gotten myself into. :p

If you have no clue what Brackenwood is, watch some animations (http://www.biteycastle.com/content/animation_brk.html) before you read on.

Basically, you are Bitey, the main character:

More info:

Bitey is the fastest thing on the planet. Nothing can match his speed and it usually gets him anything he wants. He has grown up alone in the world, always getting his own way. He has never had to hunt for food because he can simply steal it from someone else using his extraordinary ability.
The malicious and mischievous satyr-like creature has been alone for as long as he can remember, but occasionally some very vague memories of his parents come flashing back to him. When he dreams about his parents, he always sees them from behind as they flee something terrible amidst a howling musical storm.
This complete absence of role model is probably the sole reason for Bitey's attitude in life. With nobody to teach him any lessons, he is an opportunist, self-absorbed, cruel and arrogant. When he sees some creature enjoying itself or having a nice time, Bitey feels compelled to ruin the day. It gives him immense pleasure knowing that he's better than everything, but this is always his downfall. In his pride, he is often vulnerable and his speed cannot save him at times like those.
Despite these unfortunate traits, Bitey has feelings and most of the time we can empathize with him. He is introduced in his own episode called Bitey of Brackenwood as well as a starring role in the most recent Brackenwood movie: Prowlies at the River.


...and you swing around your environment causing havoc.

There are many creatures you meet along the way such as:

Bingbong

..just to name a few.

Obviously these levels would follow the Brackenwood storyline and they would be very art -oriented, but I will only do this project if I become very good at designing levels, as I do not want to disgrace the series. :p

EDIT: I just refreshed and now I don't. Strange. I'll get different pictures.

Fixed.

And Whale, I am not planning to make this any time soon, just a dream project, like I said. :)

Yeah I love that seires, I just watched what I think is the first one, with Bingbong, and compared to the new ones the graphics on that suck

Seriously though, for a flash animation these are epic. Didn't they get a famous music composer to do music for the latest one?

Yeah. The artist, Adam Phillips, used to work for Disney. :)

I remember seeing that flash before. Has to be some of the most quality flash animation you'll see on the web.

Interesting concept. You seem like the kind of guy who'd be capable of making their own characters and universe though. ^_^

The characters actually do look like sackboys a little
