You're just one click away:

Here are your 2012 Tank Award Winners!

Congrats to the winners! Everyone else - discuss!

Maybe now we'll finally get the Treasure Hunt wrapped up but before that we need to announce the winners for Robot Day and Game Jam 9. I just wrapped up my portion of the NATA Pro Round judging, expect those results next week too.

It's Follow Friday!

RaoulSinier released a new video this week and the song is stuck in my head.

I've been listening to them on loop while working on an unannounced console game with JohnnyUtah.

Robot Day brought us the first non-Game Grumps 3D animated movie by Esquirebob! His 3D skills are really impressive and you should definitely keep a close watch.

We received another great Robot Day entry from SmokingRobot, who is new to NG and will hopefully be sharing some of his other animated works here!

A third robot-loving artist you should be following is Zictor. His Pip the Robot series is really clever.

All of his games are great and he deserves waaay more appreciation.

Speaking of game developers who deserve waaay more appreciation, if you followed I-Smel, you would have seen that he posted his own list of people to follow on Newgrounds! His suggestions are all great too so you should read that now that you're done reading this.

Any particular reason as to why when I clicked on the link for the winners for the 2012 Tank Awards it sent me to the page but said I was logged out and had Luis in the box for the username?

Congrats to all the winners. I expected Lucky Day Forever and Abobo to win. Though I will admit I was surprised to see Deathink win User Of The Year.

Maybe now we'll finally get the Treasure Hunt wrapped up but before that we need to announce the winners for Robot Day and Game Jam 9. I just wrapped up my portion of the NATA Pro Round judging, expect those results next week too.

Hopefully we can get the Treasure Hunt out of the way so we don't have people complaining about that anymore...
I enjoyed the submissions from Robot Day though.

I saw that Sole Runner demo on the site yesterday, but didn't play it until now. It's really good, people should check it out.

HOLY CRAP! Thanks soooo much everybody! Been trying to win Game of the Year for ages. This feels like a major validation of all the work that went into Abobo's Big Adventure over the past decade. Thanks to all of you for the support and helping get the word out about the game. It really meant the world. Also, a huge thanks to Tom Fulp and the Newgrounds staff for believing in the project from day #1 and giving it so much support. And, of course, I couldn't have done it without my chums Bomtoons and Poxpower - so a huge thanks to them for going down that crazy 8-bit road with me.

I will do my best to prevent Abobo from crushing the Tankie under his mighty fists, but can't make any promises.

Thanks again everyone!

Congrats winners! DeathInk you definitely deserved it! Lucky Day Forever was a deeply immersive experience.

Thanks for choosing Abobo as GOTY! I'm pleased as punch because the other game entries were all extremely solid. High five to Rog and Pox, WE DID IT! :-D

Well to be perfectly fair, Kor-Rune was last year's NGADM champion, so I knew he'd get it. Buoy won the ADM of 2011, and I think there should be a logical trend as to who'd win musician of the year.

Congrats to the winners.

Ah, I love the art of the tank awards page.
But why don't buttons upon a blank page?
Sure I want to play the game/movie/whatever but I still want to see the awards page.

I am ashamed to say that I have never listened to Kor-Rune before now, but after listening to a tiny bit, I definitely see why he won Musician of the Year. Definitely good stuff.

Congrats to all the other winners as well. Definitely deserved it.

Both of Spacefader's movies are orgasmic! Love the retro pixel art style and music choice, thanks for showing him off Tom!

Congrats to Deathink on user of the year, the guy definitely deserves it! Love your art and Cult Classic + The Ventures Fulp.

Abobo's Big Adventure was no doubt in my mind game of the year. Here's to another gargantuan project to be proud of! Great job Poxpower, Bomtoons and Mockery!

and all I can say is wow. The use of lighting was brilliant and the concept of machines carrying human emotions really cuts deep. Congratulations SmokingRobot, eager to view future submissions friend. Congrats to Sarkazm on winning movie of 2012!

Honestly, I haven't listened to any of Kor-Rune's music, but I'm making it a priority to get around to it sometime this week.

Hooray.

I'm going to be the first one to say it, but I think deathink is kind of overrated.
Not that he doesn't contribute a great deal, but I think he's getting more credit than he deserves at times.
