Endzone FINALE teaser: Red versus Climber.
Please realize that this is just a small, insignificant teaser. The real epicness will come to you in a comic format, made by no other than mr. `Endling and several talented endzoners.
Sorry if it's too fast, I'm still getting used to the 30fps @_@ well, it's confusing anyways, I guess, seeing as I know almost as much as everyone about the fight, haha. Anyways, I hope you enjoy.
That animation has the biggest amount of frame-by-frame per square meter I've ever done. It was a slow process, but a very delightful one nonetheless. Fighting scenes are always fun to animate.
I know I'm eagerly waiting to see how it ends. And you?

At the end of the Endzone OCT, Endling (The host) planned to reward the victor with an epilogue comic showing the winning character facing off against one of his own. Unknown chose to go against Red, and this trailer was just intended to tease at the outline of what Endling had planned out.
Anyway, at the end of this epilogue, Climber does catch fire and "die". However, Red comes to her senses as Climber uses his last moments to beg her to save Clarice from the Wolf, as he knew he wasn't going to be able to do so himself. It's generally theorized that Red brought Climber's body to the escape airship afterwards, where Dood repaired Climber's destroyed body by painting him a new one. After that is up to speculation, but it's most likely that the airship made its way back to Castle of Nations, where Climber's failing life force/energy was renewed, effectively reviving him.
TL;DR: Climber did die at the end of Endzone according to the epilogue, but was revived shortly afterwards. This is confirmed by his appearance at the end of Karl's entries in Law of Talos with Climber's flashback to his encounter with the Wolf.
Too bad the teaser was better than the grand finale promised by Endling. Mein gott, while anything is better than nothing, it took a very long time to get a semblance of closure on this story.
I remain madly jealous of your animation skills and character building and I mourn your absence.
