I have the Halloween wrap-up ALMOST done but I'm still soliciting some feedback, trying to refine the lists and also plan to announce with the winners of the Writing Contest - and those take a while to judge. Expecting the results tomorrow!

In the meantime, try out today's serving of killer platformers:

Surface was made with HTML5 - PM me if you have your own HTML5 games and want to upload them on NG!

I initially plugged these games on the NG Tumblr which I'm still tinkering with to decide how it could best be put to use. If nothing else it's a nice way to upload prettier pictures of stuff on NG. Follow us if you're on there!

My last blog post was about how we were apparently removed from Stumbleupon back in May and I never realized it. We are now re-listed on Stumbleupon and they are sending lots of people to NG. Thanks guys!

JohnnyUtah and I are also plugging away at a game we started two years ago. The final version won't have dick bullets because I removed the bullet customization but there is still potential for dick heads... Kinda. It really looks nothing like that screenshot except for 50x50 tiles and characters. The game went on hiatus when we started a console game but we decided we could streamline some stuff and wrap it up quickly... Not as quick as expected but naiveté is sometimes necessary to get shit done. Expect it by Christmas!

ForNoReason is organizing a Holiday Collab!


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

Thanks for the update Tom! Keep the platformers kickin'

Hey, you guys haven't done a staff animation collab in ages. When are we going to see something like that in the future, and if you say "never" I'm going to cry.

Can't wait! Although now grabbelfant's Pumpkin Stop Motion is going to blow everyone out of the water, or at least it should, for sheer amount of work. I hope there's a deadline exception for him.

I'm glad the StumbleUpon situation has been sorted, you had us all a little worried there for a while Tom.

What?! Why are these games averaging 3-stars, but featured in a news post? I'm sure they're pretty cool, but wtf...

We're working on a platformer too, nearly done!
There's a screenshot in our latest blog post if anyone is interested.

A little sad that we didn't finish up in time to be featured alongside these guys :(

Congrats on getting the Stumbleupon thing sorted out.

Looking forward to the influx of new visitors... AND THEIR WACKY REVIEWS SHOULD THEY MAKE AN ACCOUNT AND WRITE SOME!

Hoping for another Axeman13 mastermind to grace our submissions with legendary comments.
