Shockboy

I was a huge fan of Neostream Interactive for years because of their rich animation style in Flash. I still remember the preloader to their site was the first one I ever saw that was funny and more than just a vanilla loading bar. They fell off my radar quite a while ago but now they are back with a new online animated series called Shockboy. The series star their pointy headed mascot who has appeared on their site for years. The animation reminds me heavily of Samurai Jack and is an impressive display of blending traditional and 3D techniques in Flash. It will be interesting to see if the show can last as other companies like Mondo Media tried for year with brilliant content and couldn’t make it last. I still think Heavy Metal Guy is the hysterical and brilliant Flash animation ever created. Hopefully this effort will finally find the fan base and revenue to keep this expression of the medium going strong.
