Best of August 2009 & Back from PAX Sep. 9th, 2009 @ 10:57 AM Reply

Go Digg Cave of Wonders - we've managed to land the front page of the Gaming section twice in the past month!

Artists: Don't miss your chance to be part of the 2010 NEWGROUNDS CALENDAR!

If you want to participate in Pirate Day (September 19th), Coop83 has assembled a list of all the voice entries!

Writers: Check out the Monthly Writing Contest!

This past weekend was the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in Seattle. We had a combined Behemoth / Newgrounds booth and it was our biggest year yet!

NG attendees included Glaiel-Gamer, Starogre, Goshadole, MoriChax, monkokio, Mexifry, Fawx, fluffkomix, doondeka, rawnewdlz, farfenwaffle, Nathan, Derek Yu, angryglacier and others.

MoriChax brought some Castle Crashers plushies to the booth but I somehow missed her appearance; I think I was hanging out with Glaiel and Starogre, who were across the aisle demoing the console version of Closure. Original Flash version:

Starogre (Jon) posted news and pictures from PAX and Glaiel posted tidbits as well. All three of us ended up with the flu, apparently there was a swine flu outbreak in Seattle so I might get checked out today.

Here are the Best of August! Each of these winners gets $30 store credit and an award certificate. The top submission in each category will also be in the running MOVIE and GAME of the year!

I'll just buy the thing when it comes out, but good luck to the entrants!

This past weekend was the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in Seattle. We had a combined Behemoth / Newgrounds booth and it was our biggest year yet!

It must have been very fun, if a little crowded at times.

Cave of Wonders has kicked off our Power of Three games hub

I hope to see the rest of them, hopefully they will all be great!

Girlchan was good, but not that good in my opinion. The games were really nice this month though. Congrats to all the winners.

Also I´m looking forward to the PO3 games =) Cave of Wonders is a good start.

Ditto this action! Do it! Wish I lived near PAX, or America for that fact.

'Crotchless Chaps' was the first flash that my friends actually laughed at when I showed them. Usually they just go, "Why the hell are you making me watch a stupid cartoon?" and smack me.

So, for restoring some credibility for myself and Newgrounds amongst my friends, I believe it should win some sort of bonus prize.

Is there a release scheme for the PO3 games? I remember someone saying something like that should be put together, but I realize it might be a hard thing to do with all the delays you always have but never take account for in game development ;)
