What? You have to be a Newgrounds obsessive to win a tablet?

Looks like there isn't much merit on personal achievement. Rather... it is how much of a loyal member you are. Newgrounds is so self-absorbed and ego-centric...

By the power of my secret edit button, that is no longer true!

I included commercial sprites for good measure. Now I'm thinking I should start some threads for people who want to volunteer services and all that stuff.

Yeah because I keep giving tablets to shitty artists who are obsessed with NG and not people who make lots of good stuff. You got me there!

To respond to that less sarcastically...

These tablets are given to Newgrounds contributors who show great promise and of the people who show great promise, I do give priority to those who have actually involved themselves with NG over the past year because those are the people most likely to use the tablets.

When someone without any Flash asks for a tablet, giving them a tablet is not going to make them suddenly have a passion for Flash.

For the money? I would work at Google for free if that's how it is. That is, if I did in fact think I'd ever be good at something that monotonous.

I think I still have Clive, I think. Was going to send out, then we were all lolevicted and he got lost. Was going to sell him for drug money but I got clean. Off of crack, at least.

Find out what Flex is, find out what Flixel is, then come back...

Congrats to the winner. :D

I might look into Flixel, my birthday is in February and 1000 USD wouldn't come bad. ;P

it's really great to see Flixel being used. it's even greater to see Adam Atomic encouraging its use and releasing it for free. I think that's very important to getting the masses into creating their own original game ideas without needing too much complex coding experience, etc.

and with the releases of professional game engines, game design is really growing as an artistic medium


the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

Oho, I will surely have to submit something for that Flixel challenge. When you first announced the Flixel competition I took a look at Flixel but brushed it off.. Recently I decided to actually give Flixel a try.. Boy, was I wrong.

Flixel really is a wonderful little engine (once you get the hang of it). I've managed to make some little games (nothing portal worthy). Now I will definitely have to buckle down and make a real game with Flixel.

I'm excited about the up and coming Flixel games. Also, that picture with the truck got me hard... candy, since I showed it to my friend, who thought it was cool. It got him in good spirits, making him generous enough to give me some hard candy.

With the release of Level Up and Canabalt, Flixel has become an incredible tool for developers. I can't wait to see the games that come out of this.


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.

When you give priority and give praise/ rewards towards those who engage in the Newgrounds community, it means that those people are more likely to create even better works for your site.

I couldn't care less about whether I gain a tablet or not. However, from what you just said, I can safely say that 'winning' requires me to become part of a community to deserve it. Obviously, this is a very selfish way of thinking, because the main goal here is to expand Newgrounds, under a facade of helping individuals grow.

Flixel is definitely interesting, I spent some time experimenting with it after you first plugged it and you can easily put together big parts of a game in a matter of hours. What eventually turned me off was how I seemed to be very restricted, modding even small parts of the engine to fit my needs seemed to cost me the compatibility with newer revisions of it almost no matter how I did it.

I always intended to get back on it eventually though, and this contest seems like a good reason to do so :) Perhaps some improvements have been made since I last had my hands on it.
