2011 October Remaster update - I thought I'd upgrade this old thing a bit :') Added some nice glow effects on the fireflies so hopefully they'll be a bit easier to keep track of. There are also some other subtle additions like music now being in stereo. I also took away the pause/play button since it seems to mess up with the animation. I hope you enjoy the animation as much as you did when it originally got posted!

---

Brought to you by... Alot of Coke! And the inspiration which is Limbo. ( [link] )

Two fireflies discovers a strange fruit, which have strange powers. Their normal lives are now endangered by the wonders of this mysterious fruit.


--------------

Edit: Wow, this made it into the feature flash section on the front page on Newgrounds for some reason xD (this is good and a big honor!)

I suggest you do NOT download it.. It is rather messy in full view <.< I'm srs cat.

Oh my god.. I never thought I'd finish this xD But I did.. After 1696 frames and a run time of 105 seconds (credits not included) =w= b It took me about a week.
I LOVE to work with frame by frame animation but it sure is time consuming!
Particle effects are my children :'D

Also, about the ending song: I had to use Five there.. I always dreamed of having it as credit-song when I was a kid xD For movies I'd never make, but now that I made a flash movie I thought.. hell, why not? I know it doesnt really fit but fook yoo its an awesome song <3

I hope you can keep up with what's happening btw.. I suggest you keep an eye on ONE of the fireflies per watch, or else you wont catch all the details xD

Thanks to ~kowai-usagi for the support during the production.

Not only is this just really great, smooth, animation, but it excels in the simplicity and general spontaneity it seems to have. It feels like one of those things you just started playing around with, and it took off. Not only that, but it tells a story with the most basic of artistic forms: dots and lines. Fantastic work. :)

This is quite good, i only recommend putting a mask around all layers that is the size of the stage and setting the background colour to black.
(This helps when people with different size screens attempt to view this fullscreen.

Ah, brilliant work! The forest you have drawn gives the viewer a mysterious feeling, and when the two fireflies appear, it suddenly becomes pieceful. The effects in the battle later on are very well made, and th emusic really suits the animation. Well done ^w^!

At the end, it seems like the blue firefly is kissing his mate; like sleeping beauty! X3 *Is way to romantic for her own good*
But, yeah; I'm going to watch it again! :3
