Snow Hare has been on the front page all week but it's not getting a ton of views. The low contrast thumbnail is likely not drawing as much attention as this movie deserves, please watch it:

If you aren't familiar with ANSI art, it was especially common in the old dial-up BBS days and the constraints involved continue to make it a really cool art form.

The creators of The Reward have posted a video about their upcoming work, Tales of Alethrion. NG backed it on Kickstarter so you'll see a Tankman in there around the 55 second mark. I was proud that NG was a site where they could post both The Reward AND the game based on The Reward.

+1 for Deadly Space Action. It is stunning just how much skillfully scripted and animated content that this guy has put out. People who go through all of the episodes will not be disappointed if they are looking for a great animated sci-fi comedy. Also, a lot of the content is self-contained, so most episodes can be viewed by themselves and doesn't require the viewer to know what the hell is going on (because quite frankly, I think the creator intended it that way for comedic purposes).

Snow Hare was amazing, totally see why the tumbnail isn't making people watch it (it took some time for myself to take a look at it for the same reason)... plus the autor came from nowhere with that great movie. I would wish in the future he can submit more information of his creations

Hey everyone, Nate Tronerud here. I was the composer for Shawn Branden's "Snow Hare". Shawn and I are both thrilled that the film is resonating with people so far. Please, if you haven't had a chance to watch it yet, it would mean so much to us, and especially to Shawn, if you did. Besides being my first film score ever, the story is deeply personal to Shawn and he put his heart into it. Please watch it; you won't regret it.

Thank you!

You want to put boobs on the tumbnail? It's a movie about sadness, and grief. The thumbnail does depict that, to some extent. Do you want the thumbnail to depict something else, to trick users into watching it?
People just want to have mindless fun, violence, porn, etc - they need no sad/beautiful stories.

I was agreeing with tom's statement about thumbnail 's low contrast might not be attracting more viewers than it should. I tend to look at things at a quick glance and I couldnt see the figures in the thumbnail clearly but I was glad I clicked on this film since it was on the front page for so long. I consider it a hidden gem. I do agree with you that sex and violence gathers the most attraction. Maybe I shouldve of been clearer with the previous comment.

Tony. Shut the fuck up.
It's Tom's site and he can do whatever the hell he wants with it.
If he feels a submission needs to be deleted he'll delete it. He doesn't need asswipes like you bitching about decisions he makes regarding Newgrounds. If you don't like his choices there are plenty of other sites you can go visit.
