Stickpage Competition - Discovery Gone Wrong
Hello. This is my first try at a competition entry and hopefully first long animation in quite some time. I'm going rather experimental with this, trying alot of new things.
Hopefully it all holds together in the end ^^; . Keep expectations low, that way it will look better XD . Thanks for stopping by.
A recent building project in the wilderness has been abandon, with vague stories of some terrible thing present.
An enthusiast tracker aims to locate the source and get to the bottom of the mystery.
First third of animation: 100%
Middle third: 100%
Final third: 100%
Music and sound: 100%

Want to keep screenshots to a minimum, partly due to spoilers.
