Happy belated V-Day everyone! I don't have any huge announcements at the moment, but do have lots of little odds and ends to report.

Try to participate in the Notepad Art Collab.

The NG Atlanta Meetup is happening from May 21st-23rd, click that link for more details.

CirrusEpix needs your votes so he can donate books to kids in Africa!

Adam Phillips has posted Three Hours of Animation Discussion on YouTube.

JakBaronKing is holding a BioShock 2 Art Contest with some neat prizes.

TrevorW has been hosting poetry battles in the Writing Forum, check it out!

The poop-propelled deer in Castle Crashers has been ranked as the 5th Best Poop in Gaming, while Castle Crashers itself was just ranked the 6th Most Influential Game of the past 10 years. Woah!

I'll be at PAX East in Boston from March 26-28th, repping NG and the Behemoth. We'll be showing Castle Crashers PS3 and BattleBlock Theater!

FLIXEL DEVELOPERS!

Mike just finished an update to our AS3 API and it now includes a Flixel preloader with Flash Ad.

This will make it easier for you to run our ads in your Flixel games, which is a requirement to participate in Flixel February this month!

The best non-sponsored Flixel games to include our Flash Ads will be eligible for the following prizes:

1st - $1000
2nd - $750
3rd - $500
4th - $300
5th - $200

The month is almost over and there aren't a ton of entries, so the prizes are wide open!

Note about the new AS3 API - it is different from the API we make available elsewhere on the site. Please use it in place of the old API files and see the readme.txt file for instructions!


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

Game 3 has been officially named and a trailer is on Youtube, eh. Can't remember the name of it for the life of me though. Something Battle, or arena or something. Looks amazingly fun though.


This looks froody.

Is BattleBlock Theater coming to PS3 too? Or will we have to wait ages again?

You were actually voted 4th, you shouldn't undermine yourself with such prestigious awards.

I really like the reasoning they had too. I'm ashamed I haven't picked up Castle Crashers yet, but once I get my Xbox back I'll be sure to check it out.

Wait...it says that Castle Crasher's pooping deer got 4th place.

I'll admit it's nothing compared to Conquer's Great Mighty Poo.

But the idea of a propelling pooping deer is quite an original idea.

Someone needs to draw some art of the pooping deer.
