In the years since, they've been developing a massive new Madness game, Project Nexus 2, for release on Steam. It's looking to be the game every Madness fan dreams of.

Other News

Today @PsychoGoldfish released our updated feed!

The feed is using our new layout, which adapts really well to mobile. Keeping up with NG should be easier than ever and we'll be making updates to make it easier still.

Another cool upgrade: Click the thumbnail for any song in your feed and it will play via an HTML5 player in the page. When the song finishes, it will continue to the next song in your feed. Between this and NG Radio, I've been keeping up with the Audio Portal better than I have in years.

Also note you have sub-feeds for things such as Followed Artists and Audio specifically.

Speaking of audio, we added a Synthwave category this week. When these pages switch over to the new layout, you'll be able to play these songs back to back as well.

If you want to help keep progress steady, please consider becoming a Supporter and joining our Wall of Honor! It's just $2.99 per month or $25 for the year and you get lots of great perks. Our bandwidth rates are about to go up so it would be especially great to exceed our goal this month. Thanks for reading and considering!

I've been beating myself up over this, I was planning to get a batch made and then I forgot. Checking in on a possibility now but they won't be today.

Not sure about everyone else, but I'm perfectly fine with the Madness Day emotes being delayed. The confirmation that the Madness emotes were planned is a good enough present to tide me over.

PsychoGoldfish has done the new mobile layout that is replacing the existing NG pages, although Liljim is also porting pages over using that new layout. Additionally BrenTheMan made Chat and NG Radio which were both mobile-ready out the gate.

With art it's easy to judge whether you want to see it, being able to judge it from the thumbnail. That's what kept me hesitant from giving music more of a chance, not willing to click on everything in order to find out if it's something I'll enjoy. This feature might be the game changer if it could be applied to the audio portal as well.

Speaking of audio, we added a Synthwave category this week. When these pages switch over to the new layout, you'll be able to play these songs back to back as well.

Yes! Been listening to Synthwave so much lately, this should be great addition.

Happy Madness Day @TomFulp @Krinkels! Kinda crazy how my 10 year anniversary on this account is the day before Madness Day one year before it started, and I'm a Madness fan. But I love it! Here's to more Madness, I'm still eagerly awaiting the next Madness animation from Krinkels, and PN2. It's my favorite shirt <3

I'm such a dork.

Happy Madness Day!

Happy Madness Day NG Squad!

I remember when I joined, idk back in the early 2000s when newgrounds was around for a few years....I ran across Madness Combat and the original video and was like O..M..G..this is awesome.

Kudos to all of the awesome people, developers, fans, and supporters for making Madess a continued success.

I havent been on NG for a while as I grew up, but I will never forgot to come on around this time to appreciate the hard work put into these items.

Newgrounds - the only forum website that will have me around forever :D

Happy madness day everyone!

I started something earlier before work and am trying to finish it quickly. I don't think it meets the qualifications to be submitted to the art portal(might fall more along the lines of sketch), but will upload it in a news post!

I have 45 minutes!


I have stuff I'm working on. Stay updated HERE if you want.
