Treasure Hunt 2009 Results Part 14 2009-11-24 10:15:00 Reply

sr-frogs forwarded me a link to a fun read by an Adobe employee, about what drove the spread of Flash.

The article states, "But history shows that it was Flash's total ecology of creators and audiences -- all the exceptionally diverse people who found value in using Flash -- which successfully drove the later practicality of in-browser video. In a sense, sites like JibJab and NewGrounds made sites like YouTube possible."

I thought it was neat that NG was actually being credited with making Flash itself popular, aside from the fact that our content submission system laid the groundwork for sites like YouTube to follow years later.

Today is Day 14 of the Treasure Hunt results and our final category. I'll announce the results tomorrow!

Everything on this list is part of a larger series, although some never got past one episode. If you like what you see, be sure to check out the author's page for more episodes!

Hidden Gems - Series

Please attempt to WATCH all these and REPLY with your favorite. EXPLAIN why you like it the most.

Day 1: General Comedy
Day 2: Quirky
Day 3: Twisted
Day 4: Experimental & WTF
Day 5: Parodies
Day 6: Nerdy & Dirty
Day 7: Music Videos
Day 8: Action and Drama
Day 9: Action Games (also Wacom giveaway and Winter Flash-Off)
Day 10: Experimental and Retro Games
Day 11: Skill Games
Day 12: Puzzle Games
Day 13: Shooters and Other Games

Thank you to everyone who stuck around for the past two weeks and tried to watch all these! The goal of this event is to drive exposure to overlooked submissions, so while the results have been a bit overkill, I consider every extra view to be a success.

If you're in the UK, don't miss the NG Autumn Fling this weekend in London! Just thinking about it makes me want to drink a beer, but then I would have to go cut myself.


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

Does that mean you'll be tempted to attend another one in London in future?

I always get annoyed when YouTube gets more positive news than Newgrounds. It is just this site with .mov files instead of .fla files! Oh, and their poor community, of course.

Just thinking about it makes me want to drink a beer, but then I would have to go cut myself.

In good 4chan style: do it!

I wouldn't have been surprised if one of the Youtube creators stumbled upon Numa Numa and had a 'eureka moment'. It's nice to see credit where credit is due.

wow, I didn't want to be self-indulgent but now I really wish I had posted episode 3 to my flash series for consideration.

The first two were front paged but episode 3 sunk into the bowels of the internet : /. I waited too long to release it I suppose.

Hehe, it's true, but shamefully only a few know this.

No way since when has reboot been allowed into the treasure hunt?
Reboot's been frontpaged alot of times. Jmartin97 doesn't get recognized enough for that series though, it's incredible.


Sigs are obligatory right?

FINALLY!!!!! you don't know how long I've waited someone to say that. I hate how people think that youtube started everything and newgrounds is just some small site.
