OMG THE 2010 TREASURE HUNT!
With almost 200,000 games and movies on Newgrounds, some great ones have flown under the radar. Can you find them?
A submission is considered undiscovered if:
1) It isn't part of a collection.
2) It has never been front paged, in which case it likely has less than 20,000 views.
One way to find them is to search for random words and browse the results. The best submissions don't always have a high score or many views. While combing the site, add submissions to your FAVORITES list to keep track!
Respond to this post with the best of your findings. Simply paste the URL in a line by itself, or paste a list of URLs if you consider them contenders.
Submissions will compete in two categories: BEST MOVIE and BEST GAME. The winner in each category wins $200 for the person who discovered it AND the creator of the gem.
Depending on what turns up, we may create additional categories.
This will be the LAST year that we accept entries for the entire DECADE the Flash Portal has existed. Next year, the treasure hunt will be based on a more recent window.
You have TWO WEEKS to respond to this thread with your gem! Deadline is Friday, October 29th.
Please cross-check previous finalists to see if your gem has been featured:

2009 - Quirky
2009 - Twisted

I spent ALL OCTOBER last year working out that massive 11-post finale, so I'm hoping there isn't much left pre-October 2010. We'll see though!
HAPPY TREASURE HUNTING!
Just recently saw this submission. I don't know if this has ever been on the front page or anything. It's part of some series called Battalion 7.
The deeper you delve, the more strategizing is involved.
Here you go :3
^^Not sure if this one counts, a little over 20k views.
^^this this this this^^
^^Really good 3 flash series.^^
What about submissions that got weekly awards but still have limited amount of views as were never front paged?
A few good ones from 2003 that went unnoticed:
This one has over 30,000 views, but it still went pretty unnoticed.
Proud supporter of Asian prostitutes in need.
Ah yes, the good old treasure hunt. I always enjoy these.
Haven't been that active around the portal this year, this is the only under the radar movie that I found entertaining.
