PAX Seattle, Madness, Halloween Aug. 24th, 2011 @ 11:08 AM Reply

If you're in Seattle this weekend, come visit us at the Behemoth booth at PAX! We'll have BattleBlock Theater and Castle Crashers up and running in custom arcade cabinets.

While visiting PAX say hi to Glaiel-Gamer and Starogre at the Closure booth (599) and check out the PAX 10 and say hi to Rig, Murudai and Xerus. Philly locals Final Form games are also in the PAX 10 - check out Jamestown!

Madness Day is a month away so check out the Madness Day 2011 page for more info.

October will be our annual Halloween Spooktacular and prizes will be roughly the same as last year, with the top movie raking in $1000.

We are going to be VERY STRICT with the rules this year... NO COMMERCIAL AUDIO! If you need music, turn to the Audio Portal or other sources that will give you their blessing. Aim for originality in every way possible because the world really needs to see something fresh and new right now. That suggestion applies to anything you make, really.

It's also not too late to make something mind-blowing and original for Madness Day! There's always room for innovation.

With a fresh new NG coming soon, it would be great to see some movies that make people feel like they are WATCHING THE FUTURE.

Games that feel like PLAYING THE FUTURE are also great. Tankmen Incursion had camera and difficulty issues but I still forever love it for how it made me feel on Pico Day 2009.

In other news, check out the results of the Comic Jam!

You can also browse this thread to see entries in the Artist vs Artist Tournament.

Thank you Joystiq for covering Symphonic Tower Defense!

For anyone coming to PAX - seeya soon! And happy belated Clock Day.


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

I'm getting a bit tired of the redesign coming 'soon', when do we get an actual date we can look forward to?!

If I can find a programmer in time I'll probably do a halloween game, but I'm not really into doing Madness flash tbh.

I heard Rig was lost in the Canadian tundra because his airplane made of walrus and moose bones fell out of the sky.

I'm working on a game of the future right now. I want to make it an Newgrounds exclusive. I will contact you about it when the time has come Tom, for things like the Medal System and other hijinks. (You know I want that big ass spot on the frontpage) I'm really excited about it because it's my first game and also my programmers first, so we'll have to wait and see how it turns out. Definitively gonna be something mind-bending.

Good times ahead, though, admittedly, Madness Day and Halloween aren't my favorite NG events.

No commercial audio should prove a nice challenge to artists. Hopefully it'll lead to some exposure for undiscovered gems in the Audio Portal.

Is it safe to assume you're trying to get the redesign up before Madness Day?
