That was great. Nice song choice, too -- it probably wouldn't have been nearly as effective without the song.

Wow, I really enjoyed that. (Though I did see it thanks to Kotaku.com)

Fantastic video, reminds me of everything videogames should be. Plus, my favourite Lackluster track!

I haven't been that moved in a while... good game. If only the whole world could see this... then they might understand our pastime a little more...

There is a problem with the MPEG2 version on archive.org. I have downloaded it four times and skips happen at the same spots, but files sizes are the same each time.

I would like to use this in a presentation at my university (not for profit, not even a grade), but lower quality text is unreadable. Please, check it out.

To joescafe,

Downloaded the Archive.org version and checked it out. For some reason I don't understand yet, the video does not play properly in Windows Media Player... BUT does play properly in VLC Media Player and AsusDVD. This is most annoying, especially since it worked fine when I was making it.

I recommend you use VLC, which is available for Win, Mac, Linux... http://www.videolan.org/

Quick response! The VLC player worked. I had used the Divx player, but had the same problem. Maybe that uses same decoder as Media Player.

Thanks a lot. I'll drop this on a DVD and see what happens there.
