Telling a story doesn’t always involve lengthy dialog, or expansive visuals. Sometimes it can be told with simple graphics, no real dialog, and a basic visual metaphors.
This is a great example of that from Sebas & Clim. Tiny Story is a series of simple statements enacted by very simple shapes animated against a grid on a primary background. Simple, and complex at the same time. Absolutely wonderful. Oh and I really love the fact that it is portrait, not landscape orientation.
