Last night, Mike, Tim and I went to Barcade in Brooklyn to hang out with Adam Atomic, creator of Flixel and Canabalt!

Adam is a really really really nice guy so meet him if you ever get the chance.

Coincidentally there was a NYC Game Industry meetup happening at Barcade that same night, so we got to meet a lot of cool people and trek to the edge of Queens to see the rumored Baby Castles.

I also got to meet messhof, who has made lots of indie PC games and this:

Side note: Barcade is coming to Philadelphia! I'm really excited for that.

VOTE MEAT

Super Meat Boy is competing against some other indie games in a contest on Game Trailers. One of the games is being accused of spamming votes but maybe we can all join up to give SMB an NG bump.

GO VOTE FOR SUPER MEAT BOY!

If you haven't played the web version of SMB, here it is:

I've played builds of the console version and it's super awesome!

BIG STORE NEWS

We discovered over time that our store quantity algorithm was created for Comic-Con fans and not general NG users. As a result, we have sold out of most of our Medium and Large shirts, with leftover Small and XL.

We don't want to keep making the same shirts forever and would rather focus on new designs in the near future, so we're trying to clear out all the remaining sizes of most of our shirts! If you check out the store, you will see that a majority of the shirts are $8-12. Sorry if we don't have your size. If we do, grab it while supplies last!


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

You should hold a competition to see who on Newgrounds can design the best Newgrounds-themed shirt, and you could then choose the top few shirts to actually sell in the store.

I'm hoping to do a lot more t-shirt contests when we revamp the line-up.

Tom, a q:

I want to order but shipping costs might be expensive, so I want to see what they are. I don't know how the system works (I haven't ordered from the new store): If I go to the "checkout" page where I enter my address, does the order get taken, or does it give me a review page of overall cost for shipping too before placing the order?

I don't want to get to the shipping stage and find out my order is already put through when I can't afford the shipping :} Not sure if it's made clear anywhere but I couldn't find it, would be helpful to know! :D

Now I'm curious, when you say "New designs" you're talking about the NG-Canada shirt to rival the NG-Europe shirt right? heh..

Pretty sure the shipping is included in the final bill so you'll see the total cost before paying for anything.

Yeah, but do you know if it puts the order in? Some websites store the order when you click "checkout" whereas others wait until payment, I don't want to put in an order and then not pay, I doubt it does it but just wanted to be 100% sure :P

I'm pretty sure there's a confirmation box at the very end with the total price. You can even chose in between two shipment methods if I remember correctly :)
