Awesome work team Newgrounds! It's very exciting to see changes on the site progress so rapidly! That vice article was a really good one by the way. I especially like these sentences:

"Now I understand the larger implications of the site. It wasn't just a smut factory, it was the graffiti of the internet: a nuisance or some, revolutionary to others."

and

"It's hard to bullshit a generation of people raised by sites like Newgrounds, a place devoted to recognizing bullshit and turning it into content."

@TomFulp just tried PIPTO on my phone and it makes me very excited to finally have Newgrounds games available for phones! Any chance the game portal will get a mobile games collection soon?

Cool to see the new updates! One slight error: the categories at the side of the movie page are actually the categories for games!

If you view any of the pages under the Games section on your phone, it should already be showing mobile-only games (unless you toggle it from your account options to show all games).


This is the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

Woah, whoops! Noted.

Your image upload - did you try to upload it here in your BBS post and it didn't work, or were you trying to upload it in /dump? Did you get a specific error message?

I don't know about him, but if I try to upload an image larger than 700x700 it gets stuck on the (uploading) message forever.

It works if I just resize the image myself, but I've noticed that a lot of peeps in the Art Forum are submitting blank posts and then confused posts.

This is probably not the best way to submit bug reports, huh.

Yup, we'll be checking unscouted art as well!

Really enjoyed the Vice article, "It wasn't just a smut factory, it was the graffiti of the internet: a nuisance to some, revolutionary to others.", love that line. What a great time for Vice to give NG some exposure, let's help it helps with the already growing resurgence.

The game sure looks great!

But Question: Why the furore about Owlboy here on Newgrounds? Was this a submission here once? Serious question, I simply do not know and I could not find anything. Did I miss something in this thread?

Owlboy doesn't have a direct NG history like a lot of the indie games we've run contests for but I like supporting a game that has so many years of work and dedication behind it.

Not an app at the moment, it's when you visit NG via Safari.

Owlboy looks a bit like Cave Story - amount of time and dedication put into it feels similar too. Hadn't heard of it before but looking forward to trying it now! I was wondering if there were any previous posts about it I'd missed too, so thanks @Manderby for posing the serious question!!

Also great article on Vice. Hope tons of people see it.

And updates! New hubs look pretty slick, now with the new-and-improved sidebar-switch -upbug smoothed out too.

Thanks for the answer. All glory to indies! Let's Play it then!

Hello! This sounds like fun, so I just uploaded my submission for this Owlboy Art Jam.

But, for some reason, if I use the search bar with the tag "owlboy", in the Art Category, I see everyone's arts except mine D: Is anything i'm doing wrong? The category I selected for my drawing was "Art - Illustration", and I added the tag "owlboy". I wouldn't like to be excluded from this just for a minor mistake from me D:

You haven't been scouted so your art doesn't show in the results - we have a unique search that will bring up your art though so don't worry. At some point we might merge all art into the tag results once and for all.

My entry!
Its more a sketch than a finished piece but i haven't drawn quite a while so i am grateful for this competition for giving me the push to sit down and finish/half finish something.

I haven't played the game yet, i am going completely off some screenshots but it looks visually amazing

That blog post really reflects on how I feel about Newgrounds.... It's been so long, too. Six whole years of traversing this site. Pretty crazy.

Hopefully another sixty more!

I believe you don't need to post it here in the forum, right? only tag it with "owlboy" and you're done
