This is probably the most epic update episode could get with the simplest execution.
People want dragons, horses, dogs, cats, and so many other things in their stories. They want werewolves that can turn into wolves, vampires that can turn into bats and most importantly! They want looping backgrounds that work, and T.V’s that can play actual “movies” and broadcasts on the screen! Running facets, beach waves, clouds that move, smoke, fire, guns that flash when they shoot, the possibilities are endless! All we need are gifs!
They already load like images so why doesn’t episode update to be able to play them? Most basic websites can play gifs, tumblr, facebook, pintrest to name a few and yet-
Plus even their own creators, go out of their way to put gifs into their episodes. The Kiss list has tons of gifs in it! Of which the creator probably took hours if not days to create. And even still that is limited animation!
Worried about copyright? Let us load them as overlays. You check over them anyway, there would be no added work! Plus you’d stop getting tons of requests for animals to be added to the game because people would have the freedom to add their own! Want to add a comodo dragon to your story? Make a gif of one and bam! You’re done! Everyone is happy, no update needed. Plus how cool would it be to be able to make and share your own gifs!? Even create your own character animations if you’re really good.
Need Tina to do a cartwheel in this scene but there isn’t already a cartwheel animation? Make it yourself! It would save the creators AND the writers so much more time and give the writers soooo much more creative freedom! It might be a little tricky but once implemented think of all the story possibilities!
Seriously how is this not in Episode yet!?
I mean even this forum allows for you to upload gifs as images!
See? You can have a little animal friend! Also, want to get more reads? Imagine animated cover art, even books don’t have those!
I’m just saying there is a lot of missed opportunity here. Like A LOT.
