Results note: Fungasm and MihaP had a tied score, and the tie-breaker is to select the highest score in each category beginning with Artwork. Fungasm had a higher Artwork score, and therefore got through!

Awww! Heartbreaker for MihaP!

But anyway, I like the theme. Can't wait to see where these animators go with it!

Results note 2: All scores are out of 80 instead of 100 this round, since all of the judges didn't get their scores in.

So, it won't fully upload but here is the preview link to my NATA entry

it's not letting me post for real for some reason. Newgrounds won't accept my icon and then won't post because I don't have an icon. Is anyone else having this issue?
