Dust: An Elysian Tail is nominated for Independent Game of the Year on Spike's Video Game Awards!

Dust involved 38 voice actors from Newgrounds and you should definitely check it out! You can also vote for it on the Spike website.

I've been continuing to post stuff up on the NG Tumblr so be sure to follow it! Mostly I've been trying to capture compelling pictures from games you might want to play, with occasional movies too. Just click the pictures to visit the pages on NG.

So what's around the corner at NG?

Rob is working on forum and blog reply feeds, to compliment the review feeds he recently launched.

PsychoGoldfish is developing expanded social shit.

Liljim is working on playlists.

Luis is working on some games and mobile layout concepts.

JohnnyUtah and I are working on a web game that we plan to launch this year.

Tim is building a new load balancer.

Mike is wrapping up Swivel for best-ever SWF to video conversion.

Brendon is setting up the video conversion server so we can accept a lot more formats and convert them for mobile / TV / web viewing.

That's right, we have a new guy on the team - Brendon! He originally worked with PsychoGoldfish years ago on the multiplayer server for Mini-Putt Online and is now on the team as a sys-admin / dev-ops dude who will help us keep moving ahead with some ambitious projects.

So everyone say HI to Brendon!


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

They did a review for Dust on Toonami awhile ago. They gave it I wanna say an 8 out of 10. There was also a thing about it in last months issue of Game Informer.
Hope it wins!

So everyone say HI to Brendon!

Spike's video game awards have never exactly been held in high regards, don't know about their independent section though. Hard to be a massive corporate whore-fest when you're appealing to folks who typically hate just that. Never played the game, can't rightly say whether it deserves to win or not.

Laughed when I heard that RicePirate was in there, though, that motherfucker voices everything.

Hope the Tumblr deal works out, and all the other projects too that I actually read through.

Hi Brendon!

Great news yet again. Looking forward to everything on that list, especially the mobile theme and the conversion servers.

Got my vote... the amount of talent that went into making that game is unimaginable. I get how someone can do the art, audio, music and other stuff, but programming too? This dude is a freaking swiss army knife of media production.

Jose and Bob got fired because they had an inappropriate sexual relationship. Stamper turned out to not even be real.

And I'm guessing Wade resigned due to conflicting time slots with his duties as the Easter Bunny.
