GAME DEVELOPERS & ASPIRING GAME DEVELOPERS

We are hosting a Construct 2 game jam where the theme is "The Future: 2030." You don't need previous programming experience to make a game with Construct 2. The deadline is June 15th, follow that link for more details!

ANIMATORS

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation 2014 has begun! Anyone can enter the Open Round, which will determine the 24 initial slots in the tournament. Judges include myself, Hikarian, Emrox, HappyHarry and MindChamber! The Open Round theme is "The Most Important Mission Ever" - please see the NATA launch thread for more details.

codeblackhayate is offering her voice talent for NATA entries. Everyone can also use The Collabinator to find collaborators for both NATA and the Construct 2 Jam!

PICO DAY

Sorry I haven't announced the Pico Day winners yet, expect them this week along with the Best of April. Manly-Chicken ambushed a bunch of people during Pico Day and made this video:

I know that Chongo is offering up his voicing abilities to anyone that needs a VA for NATA as well, great guy to work with!

I don't recall seeing a picture, but maybe I hit my head really hard recently... From what I saw in the video it looks really awesome!

Man. Right now I'm really considering joining NATA but Ive already wasted a few precious days and I don't have any ideas for the theme... Plus, I think it'll get in the way of other projects I might want to join/organize this summer. Such a dilemma! Hopefully I'll come up with something good soon.

Oh and I placed my votes for best of April earlier :)

Also pretty stoked about Fearless Fantasy and BattleBlock Theater coming out on Steam next week!
