You know that feeling that the whole universe is trying to stop you? That was this animation. A week ago I was almost finished when my computer got a virus, and I still haven't gotten it back. I made this whole thing in 2 days, with every tool and software I used fighting me every step of the way. Honestly, at this point, I'm just glad I finished it at all.

Anyway, here it is. http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/6c7f83ca5d6d6d3c2447207b 3159817a

I hope it's enough.

Friendly reminder *not* to auto-play your flash movie, or else it will have to go behind an ugly "click here" link instead of being on the Open Round page!

well, this is totally late and embarrassingly unfinished, and confusing and weird to boot. but seeing as how there will probably be no other occasion to post this nonsense...here's what I put together for NATA 2013:

Comrade Nikolai: Cosmonaut

no sound, almost no backgrounds or colors, and an obviously unfinished ending--I started on this way too late and it took me a long time to even convince myself to come up with an idea and try to enter in the first place. but hey, I animated something, so at least there's that.

thank you to the organizers for putting together an event like this that encourages people to at least try to complete new work. and good luck to everyone that entered!

Judging will be about a week or so. In the meantime, remember that NATA has a Tumblr that is updated frequently, and that T-Shirts and Posters are still available on the NATA site!

I changed my preloader and only me preloader http://www.newgrounds.com/projects/movies/671909/preview, can you change the "click here" thing to an embeded version?

Let me know if you don't see your published movie on this page!

Also, if you posted a /dump or preview link in this thread, it would be awesome if you still finished and published your movie, so it can forever have a place on the Open Round page on NG. Let me know if you do and I'll be sure to update!


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

d'oh! this is probably not worth posting, but I guess I might as well include this here since I have it.

I know this is too late to be part of NATA, but I put together a version of my entry with sound added. definitely kicking myself after somehow managing to forget to use a song I had specifically set aside for this. ah well, I suppose such things can happen when tired and in a rush.

again, this is **not for judging**--but for anyone else that might be interested or that finds it boring to sit through a silent video, this version is exactly the same as my entry except for some music and sound effects. it's still not "finished," but I think it sort of helps get across what I was going for, not that it makes much of a difference, all things considered...

Comrade Nikolai: Cosmonaut (with music--too late for NATA)

oh, and by the way--great job, everyone! the entries I have seen so far show a lot of different creative takes on the theme. it's really cool seeing all the unique styles and viewpoints everyone has. and hey, even for those of you that had setbacks and things that did not go as planned, there is something to be said for even considering taking on something like this and pushing through. congratulations all around.

also if you can't change it could you at least change the sizing so my entry isn't screwed up.

Question. Are we allowed to put our submissions on youtube as well, or are they restricted to newgrounds only? Thanks in advance :)

If anyone needs it in the future, here's a vector, outlineless NATA logo. It happens to be red, but if you import the SWF into your library, you can change the colours.

I think something might be wrong. When I went on the open round page, and went down to my submission, there was just a white screen, and nothing else. Not even a "click here" button. I don't know what's wrong, though.

Yeah, that's it. Those are all the ways I can say hello. I don't know anymore languages.

Oh, wait, never mind! It just took 20 minutes to load on my computer. Guess that's what I get for having a slow computer.

For the Open Round, judges select their top 20 entries while keeping in mind elements of Art, Animation, Originality, Entertainment, and Structure. Entries on their lists are scored like so:
#1 on the list = 20 points
#2 on the list = 19 points
#3 on the list = 18 points
... and so on. This makes for 100 possible points, but divided much differently than later rounds.

We have an update from Bennett Awards! John, the designer of the NATA trophy, is actually a long-time NewGrounds fan, and donated to the IndieGoGo campaign -- he just received his shirt and sent in a photo! (Below) They have also informed me that the trophy will be complete in a week or so, and we'll have photos to show you all by then.
