Today at 2pm we reset the Art Portal tree. We have implemented a new invite / accept system, where multiple people can now attempt to scout you, but ultimately you decide which offer to accept.

To speed up the "recovery", everyone can currently send four invites per day, instead of two.

Things got off to a rocky start - the first batch of invite data was lost (whooooops!) and people who were invited early will get an error message when they click those links. If you were invited you should expect to see a more recent PM with a working link.

If everyone makes use of their four daily scouts this week, the tree should grow back pretty quick!

In other news...

JackSmack is organizing a Chicago Game Developers Meetup!

AlmightyHans is looking for more faces to fill out his Faces of NG Collab.

Bryce Milburn has posted a new Shake the World trailer! Everyone can get involved in this!

Some very serious news...

Denzel-Crocker and pupart were evacuated from their homes due to the flood in the Philippines. Your fellow NGers have been making donations to help them!

Please make a donation to help Denzel and pupart, even $5 helps!


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

Oh man, I hope they're alright.
Are you gonna clean up the featured art too and start from scratch or will you leave it that way and keep on adding things?

It's annoying that I've lost all of my 36 scouts... Thats 9 days after I get scouted with the new system.

Well, I have to wait for someone to scout me first...

Hint hint.

Song of the Firefly is on Steam Greenlight and Facebook. Give them a look and support the project!

It's great that you can actually scout 4 users instead of 2.

I was actually shocked at first when i saw i wasn't scouted and thought oh crap did zanroth get in trouble. heh glad it was only a system wide problem. also i like the idea of invites makes the system more easier to avoid getting scouted by a problem user.
