Finally! 2011-2012 personal project is finished! -dies-
<3 rejoice everyone! You can finally see what I've been working on for half the year! 8D
This is a school project that we grade nines (now grade tens) take and have to complete the product and a detailed report in the span of one year. For half the year I've been working hard on this interactive flash. As a beginner with absolutely 0 knowledge about AS I had to start from the very very very bottom and work my way up. Please enjoy!

Also if you see any mistakes, glitches or anything weird, please tell me so I can fix it ASAP!

Does anyone have problems with the load? >.<'' if you do, once you see the play button, just click it!

*warning!* don't click back after the play button : P it'll make the music overlap each other!

Music is from Freeplaymusic

Thank you for the support everyone! I have all the responses I need now C:! But feel free to give some critique to help me improve in the future!
So for my report I need some help! C'8 it would be awesome if you guys could provide some feedback! You'll find a survey below! You don't have to provide a feedback but it's recommended C8 and I won't put your reply on my report if you don't want to!


*thank you!*

What was your first impression of the Flash?: Impressive drawings!
Which scenes do you enjoy the most? The jumping through the cat flap. That was so cute!
Which scenes do you find not that enjoyable? Being killed by the truck sort of took the wind out of my sails.
What can be improved? More choices would be better.
Did the Artist communicate the theme successfully? Yes, very well. I'm glad that I could replay it after learning that crossing the road would result in my death.
Are you ok with the fact that your reply might be included in the report? As long as you say it's an anonymous reviewer, then I'm fine with it. :)

Oh yeah! Almost forgot...

Name: Jennifer Kwok (do i really need my full name... /^\)

Age: 16 and one day

What was your first impression of the Flash?
It is a very useful but difficult software to use.

Which scenes did you enjoy the most?
The cat running home and through the cat flap. I think the movements were very fluid.

Which scenes do you find not that enjoyable?
All of the scenes were enjoyable! (that includes the image of the dead cat)

What can be improved? [remember anatomy and animation mistakes don't count!]
Overall, the drawings were very good, so there isn't much to improve on that. You can perhaps try to make the movements even more fluid by adding more frames to the animations. Perhaps a little more detail can also be added to some parts of the background. To make the main character, the cat, stand out, you can also try highlighting and shadowing parts of the drawings to make it look more three dimensional.

Did the Artist communicate the theme successfully? [you'll have to read the credits for this!]
Yes! (I could guess the theme even before reading the credits, actually)

Are you ok with the fact that your reply might be included in the report? [it will be read by teachers and other adults so think carefully!]
Yes. (but perhaps you should remove the bracketed parts...or change the wording to make it more formal – these teachers might know me after all...)

CRYSTAL!!! It's so cool! (*V*) <--my original smiley
The song was really comforting, especially when I kind of (indirectly) killed the cat in a traffic accident...

The animation was really, really, really good...and impressive...and...amazing and...and... *speechless*

Ha~ I especially liked the running cat animation (must have been really difficult to draw...)

(...can't wait till you get famous! will be really happy for you ^^)

Age: 15
What was your first impression of the Flash?: It is very well done. The animations and the transitions were detailed and admire how you spend so much effort on each frame. Your drawings are brilliant and I love your cat. The only problem is your load bar.
Which scenes do you enjoy the most? The running scenes and when the owner picked the cat up and when the cat found home.
Which scenes do you find not that enjoyable? When the cat died and found the new home.
What can be improved? The load bar
Did the Artist communicate the theme successfully? YES
Are you ok with the fact that your reply might be included in the report? I'm ok! :D

GOOD JOB CRYSTAL! although my comment was late

Yeah, but then it jumped off the tricycle me and my babysitter were riding on the way to the new house. It's a long time, though. Anyway, all we have now are stray cats that our family keep feeding in the backyard.

Survey:
Name: Marina C.
Age: 21
What was your first impression of the Flash?:
Thought it was just a simple flash movie. Turns out it's an interaction Flash!
Which scenes do you enjoy the most?
The part where the cat finally found its way home, happy that the cat is back with its family.
Which scenes do you find not that enjoyable?
Nothing much, though some part are heart-wrenching (being someone who constantly seeing roadkills every single day due to people neglecting the animal's safety and welfare in her community)
What can be improved?
More depth in some stories, though other than that it seems wonderful and simple.
Did the Artist communicate the theme successfully?
Yes. It was wonderful, touching, a tad nostalgic, the music fit in just right in the flash. Simple but quite wonderful IMHO.
Are you ok with the fact that your reply might be included in the report?
I don't mind. If it's to help a fellow artist and animal-lover, then why not?

Age: Younger than 18, older than 10
What was your first impression of the Flash?:
It was so heartwarming in a way. And so light, the music really adds a wonderful touch, it fits this perfectly.
Which scenes do you enjoy the most?
Definitely the running scene and the cat jumping through the cat door. You did such an amazing job, and the cat was just drawn perfect, through the whole thing.
Which scenes do you find not that enjoyable?
I found all of them fantastic, but the car one was a bit sad...
What can be improved? [remember anatomy and animation mistakes don't count!]
Hm...I understand that it was supposed to be simple, but maybe you could give the girl in the beginning a face? Everything is perfect though. It needs no improvement!
Did the Artist communicate the theme successfully? [you'll have to read the credits for this!]
Yes, very successfully! :)
Are you ok with the fact that your reply might be included in the report? [it will be read by teachers and other adults so think carefully!] No, thank you :) I hope that's alright!

Oh my fucking god Taiyo, THIS IS AMAZING :iconkawaiidesuplz: I actually thought this was one of those proper flash games ; u ; THIS IS AMAZING
It kept me entertained throughout the night too! It's absolutely stunning, you should do more of these.

I'll do a survey<3

Age: You know the drill Taiyo > u ></sup>
What was your first impression of the Flash?:
On first thoughts, just from the little preview I thought it was just some tiny animation but when
I discovered the loading screen and nice choice of music I knew instantly it was a flash. But just by the loading screen I knew it was going to be a fabulous one at that.
Which scenes do you enjoy the most?
I enjoyed all of them, some of the detail and animation amazed me in ways. The animations were smooth as well and detailed. Especially the one where the fellow cat is stood on the hill watching over the ground. That one scene caught my eye.
Which scenes do you find not that enjoyable?
Maybe some scenes did not include as much detail as others, but they were still enjoyable.
What can be improved? [remember anatomy and animation mistakes don't count!]
Maybe the backgrounds, sometimes they seemed a bit plain, however it is not a big problem.
Or even more endings<3 However the ones used where sweet so that isn't a big problem either.
Did the Artist communicate the theme successfully? [you'll have to read the credits for this!]
Yes, yes she did.
Are you ok with the fact that your reply might be included in the report? [it will be read by teachers and other adults so think carefully!] Of course I'm alright with it
