The Construct 2 Touch Jam winners will be announced tomorrow! Still working to finalize the list.

Until then, if you are on Tumblr you should Follow the Newgrounds Tumblr!

I've been putting more and more stuff up on there and will sometimes be including things that don't even make the NG front page. Of all the social sharing sites it's been my favorite and I think of it as a second NG front page for people who might be on Tumblr more than NG.

I also started getting re-active with our Google+ just before they made their big update, which makes me even more interested in seeing what we can do with it. Our Google+ turnout has been pretty lame so far but maybe that will change... That is if Google fixes whatever strange DNS issue is causing them to not access Newgrounds! We used Google DNS here in the office and weren't able to access the site today, so we switched to Level 3. If I try posting a link to NG content on Google+ right now, it tells me it can't find the website. They just launched a ton of stuff this week so I imagine lots of weird stuff is happening but I sure hope they fix it soon! They should also re-enable our Adsense so we can actually attempt to do something with the Newgrounds YouTube account... don't get me started.

Our big publishing system improvement won't be launching this week so there will continue to be wonkiness a little longer, thanks for bearing with us during the bugs!

Matzerath just released a new game, so you should be playing it:

  • Misadventure
    Misadventure by Matzerath

    This game will eat your soul, but it can only fit two bytes.

    Score
    Under Judgment
    Type
    Game
    Popularity
    223 Views
    Rated
    Ages 13+

You should be playing / watching anything Matzerath releases.


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

I don't believe in Tumblr.

Okay. Hopefully there'll be no more bugs after this. Or at least not as many left....
What is a "wonkiness"?

Matzerath just released a new game, so you should be playing it:

I'll check it out now.

Looking forward to that wonkiness getting sorted out!

Been waiting forever for that G+ API to stop being read-only for public data, surprised they haven't done anything yet considering the competition. But maybe that's part of that big update...

You guys still going to post tumblr stuff on your facebook page? Because I don't really use tumblr and facebook is really my "hub" for all my updates and stuff. So if you could keep that up that'd be great.

Considering the quite evil statements (and actions) made by the leaders of Google, perhaps Bing or Yahoo would be a better alternative for logistic support :| Still, pursuing Google +1, or whatever it is, would seem a reasonable course (as I'm sure Wade would agree), to maximize our presence on the Web, and provide an alternate information stream.

Is there a way users pages can show how many views (and replies) it receives? is there a way for the review protocols be implemented into blogs, so double/triple/quadruple posts can finally be a thing of the past? I caught you (Tom) double posting (and properly apologizing).... who's responsible for fixing this?

Still (sometimes) getting a 504, "Newgrounds is down at the moment..", when I check the bbs/blog updates, right below your newspost on the Front Page. This concludes my griping :)

The problem Tom is that you're not utilizing tumblr properly. Want to appeal to the mass audience there? Then you need to be promoting flash with a lot of homoerotic subtext, games about One Direction, music where 20 songs are combined into one and art featuring pretty hipster girls holding Starbucks cups either looking completely listless or completely zestful for life, no inbetween there. Also a quote about love should be in that art somewhere.

Then, and only then will the likes and the reblogs and the followers come.

Pretty sure I was the first one to follow your guyses Tumblr. ;)

Also, speaking of the NG YouTube account, be great if you guys upload the NG Collabs (eg, MGS Collab, Africa Dudes, Street Fighter Collab).
