iwanttobeadeejay came up with an idea to generate publicity for NG - get our name tattooed on Scott Townsend's back!
Go to this page and suggest "Newgrounds" as the name for Scott's tattoo!
The gang on the forums has already votes us up to 23rd. Help bring us to first!
The XGen team has released Defend Your Castle for iPhones! They had previously released a popular WiiWare version and many of you played the original Flash game right here on NG!
Check out A Bid For Freedom for a neat example of what happens when various skill sets from NG come together. It combines great writing, art and vocal talent into an interactive storybook.
Johnathan Wrathborne will be giving a talk titled "Create Your Own Anime" at FanimeCon in San Jose on Saturday, May 23rd! The talk will be between 2pm-3pm in the Marriott, either Salons IV, V, & VI. He'll be showing off some of his NG animations and giving a crash course on screenwriting, storyboarding, Flash and Newgrounds itself as a venue for animators.
RubberNinja posted footage from the Australia NG meetup this past weekend! Master-Samus is quite the acrobat, it's pretty impressive.
Be sure to check out my post about rev share if you haven't! We are now giving the community a cut of the ad revenue they generate with their pages on NG. Here comes a compromise though; I've decided to suspend the monthly prize money for the ten best submissions. Winners will receive an award certificate and store credit, with our goal being for the rev share system to ultimately generate more earnings than the existing prizes. This decision is one part recession-era adjustment and one part strategic, with the long-term goal of shifting as much NG revenue into the rev share system as possible.
On the plus side, maybe this will ease some tension over the monthly winners, since no one will feel like they are getting cheated out of prize money and everyone is earning based on their individual performance. Like how I put this kinda bad news under lots of good news? Anyway...
We will still have Pico Day prizes, and the pre-loader is coming! Pico Day is April 30th.
