A boy goes to the mall to buy some new video games. Lucky for him he meets a guy who likes all the same video games he does. Just as quickly as they become friends, he finds out this person is not what they seem to be.
Gamerz T-Shirts and merchandise:

2 MILLION VIEWS!
That's even more amazing!
I kinda wished this happened 2 years ago when I released this film, but still this is really great!

It just keeps amazing me how many views this video is getting. Some people have said that they even cried at the ending, which is interesting, since this wasn't a sad story.
-OVER 10 MILLION VIEWS!
I'm so glad so many people have watched and enjoyed this film. I still appreciate all the comments and views.
-OVER 20 MILLION VIEWS!
I'm sure many of you already know this, but I really love seeing all the feedback and comments for this film I made.
As a Special Bonus here's the story to how I came up with Gamerz:
In highschool, I was talking to one of my friends about having a speedrun contest of Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask.
That made me think of an idea of a boy and girl playing an intense game together.
It would get so intense that by the time they finished it, the girl would kiss the boy in excitement.
I based the idea of the story around that, and decided to write in scenes that lead up to the big kiss scene.
The first frame I drew for this film is the thumbnail, and I wasn't even intending to make the entire film. I just started drawing the idea of a boy touching a girl's chest, like I've seen in anime.
Then I decided to test 2 features called "Smoothen" and "Graphics" in Adobe Flash. With both, I was able to create a "Boiling Line" effect that I thought looked really cool. After I finished that shot, I figured "Well maybe we get a shot of outside the mall, as we hear a slap making birds fly away".
Effectively, I found myself animating the entire film, which took about a month to finish.
It's funny how I wasn't planning on making "Gamerz" until I was a better animator, and by creating this film as early as I did, it helped me become a better animator.
Not to mention, it showed that my ideas do have an audience.
I can only hope you all will enjoy more of my ideas and animations in the future.
And especially thank you to all you fans of YowLife.
P.S.: I'll start writing that sequel.
