Everyone: Please digg Dadgame if you would like to see us finally hit the Digg front page with a jacked up tank logo icon.

Animators: Check out the voice acting entries for the Talk Like a Pirate Day contest! Find one you like (hopefully there is at least ONE), whip up a cartoon and submit it on September 19th, Talk Like a Pirate Day. Read the original announcement for CASH prize info!

Voice Actors: Tomorrow is your last chance to talk like a pirate, but there is an ongoing voice acting competition.

New in the store today: Anachronic, by Mihai Sorohan

You may know him better as sorohanro in the Audio Portal. Check out his songs and buy the CD to support him!

Time to vote for the Best of August. If you are part of the voting pool, you will see a big link on your account options page, under the header, "Monthly Voting Time!"

If you are a contributing member of the site, don't forget to activate revenue sharing on your account options page. You can get a cut of the ad revenue generated by your page, games, music, audio and art. If you make Flash specifically, be sure to try our Flash Ads system; it's been getting great results for games in particular.

We're in the final days of the Combat Arms front page campaign and I would like to thank everyone who tried the game, as well as Combat Arms for letting us attempt a re-skin! The results of this campaign made it possible to sponsor our ongoing weekly line-up of games. This has been a tough year for everyone but I think we all come out stronger for it.

September 22nd is Madness Day, go grab the loading screen wallpaper featuring Jebus! This works like last year, where you can use whatever preloader you want or the Flash Ads preloader, with this as the backdrop.

For an example of what your loading screen will feel like, here is a self-serving example from last year:

Madness Day prizes are subject to improve based on results, but the minimum prizes will be:

1st: $1,000
2nd: $750
3rd: $500
4th: $250
5th-10th: $100

Next up after Madness Day is our annual Halloween contest! Submit your Halloween Flash during the month of October and include the Halloween Preloader to be part of the competition.

I have to agree, I didn't much enjoy the gameplay, not my cup of tea. Sort of reminded me of alien hominid, but with a fucktonne more controls and HOLY FUCK WHAT AM I DOING WHERE AM I WHAT IS THIS.

I have MWC info and stuff I'll pming you tonight Tom. Including the last two contest's results and info on this months so that you can post it in whatever future newspost you have.

Played a bit of dads game, but it got repetitive, perhaps because it was muted and it was very hack and slash, with mostly slashing. The unique levels & boss battles are cool though.

I liked the WSW cameo but quite honestly didn't care much for the actual gameplay, the Z key is a 4th or 5th finger jobby and you're tasked with mashing it constantly for pretty much the entire game.

Holy crap, the prizes look sweet. Damn, I should have made something. I might make another turd just so I can use the sweet-ass preloaders.

I am glad the prizes were actual monies instead of store credit, apparently McDonalds doesn't except NG shirts. That must be why the economy is bad.


For my next trick, I will need a condom and a volunteer.

Yeah, pretty much. Sapuken's forte is definitely artwork, so the programming aspect was quite lacking. It kind of ruined the game.

I'm mixed on Dad's game, some of the ideas felt right at home like spawning a weapon on demand whenever, but I pretty much spent the entirety of the game mashing Z. I RARELY pressed X with the lasers because that attack actually takes time to fire. Time in a frantic beat em up game. The guitar also should of been mapped to X instead of your PRIMARY ATTACK. Fuck I love the author but what was he thinking? you get 2 guitar shots and the guitar is mapped to the "hit things" button, so you can waste them both 5 seconds afterward.

Also I have no idea how anyone completed hard mode. Maybe I could play through with 2 lives, but why disable regenerating health? And not even restore it after you beat a boss or anything?

And the text looked horribly basic considering how much care he put into all the other art in the game.

Oh yeah, and Madness Day!

The Dadgame's general gameplay wasn't too great, but the boss battle were neat.

Digg seems lame.

Oh yeah, Madness Day preloaders. I almost forgot.
