    This is by far my most involved animation yet, I’m so happy to see everyone enjoying. Big thanks to Trent for making it with me and keeping me company over discord over long hours of animating. I’m realizing now that people might see this before the first two, so here’s the whole series in one convenient playlist -

      now that you've shown us how you did it, i really want to see the unedited version.

    • GenTac

      Is the first scene with the old man a reference to Seles in The Legend of the Dragoon? It seems like such a direct reference to the scene with Elder Plos sitting in the ash, outside of a ruined house.

    • Marshall The Man

      My name is Marshall and it totally caught me off guard lol

    • Viper_213X

      Is there a next episode for my favourite adventurer?

  • JoesGuy

    If only replaying RPGs offered such drastically different story paths.

  • AceBattleStorm

    Genuinely love this series so much

  • waywardkitten1

    So the rat released him from his cell?


    It kills me how much of their faces and mannerisms translate into this form. These are amazing.

  • TheCarloCarlone

    There are better setups-comebacks here than in actual movies

    "I am so sick of doing everything WRONG!" This line honestly, unironically, hits hard

  • NotBop

    I love the idea of an RPG you play several times, and it's totally different every time, even though all the code and stuff is the same just the decisions you make change with new info

  • NotBop

    "A health bar does not show who is enemy to you, it shows who is an enemy to themselves." That line is so great, and all the acting in this video is Fantastic!

  • Nym

    I love all the callbacks in this video. 0:52 - A massacre most foul instead of his prior statement "A murder most foul" 1:05 - Didnt you see the posters? 2:04 - The family pet he killed 2:17 - The farmer he killed (Nice gloves) 2:40 - Is the king corrupt? No not very corrupt, no 2:56 - Redux of his first lines, aw

    This is the best thing I've seen in a long time. I wish you madea super cut or linking them together better. The call backs were so smart and small things crack me up like a Wes anderson film. Impressed!

    Marshal is literally the physical embodiment of die as a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain

    I just realized something.. this whole story is a lesson about how sometimes we make choices in RPGs that we regret but for all we know it could have been the best possible thing. Life is like that too. Life is too uncertain for regret. Thank you.

    Okay so judging from how these videos when in the first two videos when he killed everyone the worst that happened is that he felt pretty bad about it but the kingdom was safe Marshall wasn't let loose to let all the criminals free in bus the king would still be alive The Village would still be alive and everyone except for all the people he murdered in discriminately what all still be alive living happily however by Saving Marshall and letting him get found this leads to the entire Kingdom being left in disarray this game thus follows the opposite logic of undertale where undertales logic was to be friendly to everyone and give everyone a chance before beating the shit out of them this game is logic is that no one can be trusted to your better off killing everyone

    This one was epic. I felt the 2nd RPG animation wasn't as good as the 1st one, but you really brought it back with the 3rd one. Crossing it over with your giant animation was also epic and felt very appropriate. Nice job!!
