Check out the winners of the December Writing Contest!

RE: Best of 2012. Consider this a rough draft, the list includes the monthly winners from 2012 as well as some staff additions (with more to come). What movies and games would you like to see nominated for Best of 2012?

http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/about-newgrounds/history/annu al-awards/2012-awards

Who were your favorite NG musicians in 2012?

Who was your favorite user?

And yes, 2011 winners are STILL COMING. The new batch of tank trophies has been slow going but is in progress.

Oh, Pico Radio, definitel-- wait... Going to have to think these over, for a while. This is going to take longer than I thought.

Not a single game by ZEGMAN? I at least expected rivea somewhere up there. It's the most awesome bullet hell game I've played so far, of course with close competition of Matt-loves-swords' game.

  • Rivea
    Rivea by ZEGMAN

    Did someone say Bullet Hell game? Dodge thousands of bullets and take down massive bosses!

Every movie/game I would have wanted nominated is already up there.

I wasn't expecting to see the Drawing Grounds on the list, so that was a nice surprise! Thanks for that :]

I did it out of curiosity and looks like it never works under a rich content link... I had to add some dummy text in there.

I'll be simple and blunt: Anything that's ORIGINAL. That should narrow things down a fair amount. However, an example should be provided to help my case so one movie that did come to mind from 2012 was this:

  • contrast: a love story
    contrast: a love story by dante224

Feels really great to have Abobo's Big Adventure in the running after all those years of development. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed, because nothing would be cooler than winning best game of 2012 on Newgrounds. Thanks for all the support for this project over the years, everybody! I really means a lot.

Congrats to all the other movie and game nominees as well. Lotta great submissions last year!

The game itself should be pretty much wrapped up this week, then we gotta plug in the Passport support so people can participate on any site it appears on. Hopeful for a launch next week, we'll see how it goes!
