It's never too late to join the party! NG is the Flash Portal that spawned all other Flash Portals.. The Alpha and the Omega of Flash Portals. But also a lot beyond Flash now too.

Well, now the deadline has come and gone. I wish good luck to all the contestants.

And also, I wish to thank you so much for frontpaging my game! It really means the world to me :'D

Ah, well join the party I shall

I'm curious to know how "some dumb kid" spawned this giant. Are there any articles or interviews you could link me to or something?(although I could probably just google it, but that just doesn't have the same personal touch)

Thanks!

You can read the history here:

http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/about-newgrounds/history/

I need to update the more recent years though. That history section also has other stories, annual awards, etc!

I see it on the list! It's on page one, too. It's possible it was on page 2 before, since it sorts by voting score. We should make the pages longer.

Woah dude.. Now that I'm playing Spiderling I have no idea why the score is a 3.07, this game should be waaaay higher! This Stencyl Jam is becoming harder and harder to judge as I go down the list!

Holy shit Tom is right!
I'm sorry for not playing spiderling earlier! I'll go to sleep now, but I'll try to finish the game tomorrow and leave a review!
Really good job with this one, Petrini!

Thanks guys. I think the controls and difficulty might be a deal breaker for many players, giving it a mediocre score.
But the game got featured on jayisgames.com and indiegames.com so that's something atleast!

I've got a feeling any game that isn't front paged doesn't really have a chance of winning :( oh well

IT WAS FUN, GUYS! next year!
