My resolution for '09 is to actually finish a Flash project so I can post it here. (Difficult to motivate oneself to do that when you're not being paid.)

I have to get round to doing that too.
Funny, that was my resolution last year as well.

On-line ad spending is expected to drop by a significant amount in 2009, but this past year we transitioned our ads to performance-based advertising for on-line gaming and MMOs. People tend to seek out entertainment MORE in a bad economy, so hopefully we'll be alright. We don't depend on large brand advertisers, who are the ones likely to cut spending and hurt sites that depend on them. Realistically NG needs to get more 300x250 ads in play, which don't fit well in the current layout. NG always manages to pull through no matter what happens, though.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Seems like a good plan to me.

My goal for 2008 was to release more games than I have in any previous year. I'm bummed that I only released 2 which ties with previous years, but they are 2 of the most polished games I've single-handedly produced ever so I'm happy with that. I've definitely been very focused and productive this year in putting the extra polish into these games, resurrecting EntropicOrder.net, creating a couple game portals, learning and switching to ActionScript 3, and monetizing my work (which takes a lot more time spent on sponsorships and putting out licensed versions), but I was hoping I would have a higher number of released work.

In 2009 my goal is to make Flash games full time, either working for myself or for someone else, to take my AS3 skills to the next level in terms of efficiency and originality, and to find a great animator to partner up with that I can work really well with. I should definitely be able to produce more games this year and I'm going to be very focused on reaching my goal of developing games professionally. Wish me luck.

I want this to be the year that we capture the eyes of the rest of the web, and not just for being "EDGY" and "EXTREME", but for being hands-down better than everyone else. Those are big words, but it's good to have goals, right?

yeah! go Tom! GO NEWGROUNDS!

So what are YOUR goals and resolutions for 2009?

to rip your head off and lay my eggs in it :P

and to get better at flash

and to graduate from high school

TO MAKE THE WORLD KNOW AND PH33R MY NAME!
