Keep an eye out this week for Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation open round entries! The deadline for entry is Midnight EST on Friday, May 23rd and the theme is "The Most Important Mission Ever." If you haven't started anything, you can still whip up an animation in the next week and have a chance to land a spot in the tournament!

BattleBlock Theater is now available on Steam! It would be awesome if you bought a copy. Also follow Dan Paladin on NG.

Fearless Fantasy is also now available on Steam! This one comes from NG favorite SpikeVallentine.

The 24-Hour Game Show Marathon will be streaming from the NG office this weekend, to raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The stream begins at 12PM EST today, check the website for more info!

I gave a talk at Bucks County Technical High School on Thursday and met WingedRevelations, who showed me the teaser for a series he is developing! He had all sorts of storyboards already drawn out, keep an eye on his progress!

I missed doing a proper Follow Friday due to a stomach bug that hit me yesterday, although I wasn't in a huge rush to bump the Pico Day Winners post.

If you follow one new person this weekend, I recommend WolveGames, who is really on a roll. He made Hanoka, currently the top ranked NG entry from Ludum Dare 29, then followed up with Hobo Bob, the first of his Wolves Weekly series, with a new game every week! Check out his previous works:

Bout the BattleBlock + Castle Crasher bundle pack, worth my money. :D

Saw the guy in the Video Games forum, cool to see it's a fan series of Disgaea, really enjoyed those games. Followed.

I missed doing a proper Follow Friday due to a stomach bug that hit me yesterday, although I wasn't in a huge rush to bump the Pico Day Winners post.

Feeling better now?

With all of the hype around Battleblock Theatre at the moment, I may have to dust off my Xbox 360 and get a copy.

Hope ya feel better Tom! It's nasty when you get a stomach bug and even more nasty when you past it on to your kids/family. Wishing for a speedy recovery :).

BBT out on Steam, yes please. That's my birthday present sorted for me! Let the fun times be had.

And I utterly love Wolvegames, INVAZIA was so awesome when it came out, it was just hard not to follow.

Oh man, sorry to hear it. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of room temperature water usually fixes a lot of tummy troubles: restores natural acid balance, high in potassium... helps break up that bloated feeling, from all the nasty, synthetic sugar/fat/salt they pass off as food these days.

New game every week never works out, since eventually you either get exhausted or get an 'itch' to do something bigger.

That being said, it'll be fun while it lasts - let's get experimental :D

Wouldn't it be cool if we did an endurance run of games per week, like a set of weeklong game jams? The idea would be to have small ideas come to fruition, and at the end we'd give a 'total ranking' and 'week ranking' that would be the prize money. For example, getting 1st nets you 75, but getting first 4 times is 500.

When will we get some more news about Power of 3(2)?


Good.

It would be awesome if it were on PSN because I don't own an Xbox and I haven't used Steam since I got a copy of The Binding Of Issac from Deathink. Also Steam hasn't been letting me sign in for months so thats another reason I haven't used it. So while I am glad you guys have BBT on there, it kinda does nothing for me.....
