Edit: It is meant to finish after the low battery scene.

Flash ActionScript3 wasn't as bad as I thought.

Thanks to :iconflippinmental: for helping me code the sound!

------
I know some peeps may be disappointed at how short this opening cutscene is but there are many reasons why. The main reason is mainly to focus on quality rather than quantity and I'm certain that that is what everyone wants at the end of the day.

It's been a while since I've been Flashin' (of the Adobe kind :p) and the transition from AS2 to AS3 wasn't as horrendous as previously thought. Non the less, I hope BetaV2 is as enjoyable and as creepy as the original!

Keep a lookout for a playable demo of BetaV2 for release on the 21st October as a first year anniversary thing! :dummy:

The ambiguity of the mother's reaction at the end is really effective too. You really wonder what she's going to do!

Love the new style of the title! Really fits the mood and setting of the game. I also really like the dialogue in the new opening, the suspense feels greater when we experience the event as if we're there with the characters at that moment. :)

I think that the beginning was much more professional art and composition wise, but that it definitely wasn't as eerie as the original beta intro, even with the music. The few pictures were wonderful to look at though, and I like the fact that you showed the outside of the train in the mountains. It gave me a much better idea of the setting.

I'm awful at drawing people but hopefully I can get away with it with the composition.

I really like how to the point this opening is, and I can see a lot of improvement.
The only thing I wish you didn't take out was the part where she turned her head.
That freaked me out so much when I first played the demo, and (IMO) really helped set the mood.

i played the demo a while back, and approved of the story telling. The usual art style will definately carry alone the settling feeling that something is wrong. will there be more actual colour in the game?

-shot for late reply, darn life :iconmingplz:-

Wah! Thank you so much for the feedback!

Are you referring to the black and white sprites? I decided to do the sprites in B/W to contrast with the colour full backgrounds. It also makes it easier for me to animate and colour because back then, I was like the only person working on the character artwork XD. It's subject to be experimented on, depending on team resources \o/.

I aim to at least use colours to match the mood/atmosphere so while they seem a bit random at the moment, everything works to the story :)

Thanks again!
