So yesterday this amazing video about Newgrounds hit YouTube and was featured on the front page of Reddit.

It inspired me to write a heartfelt post that should really stay on the front page for like a week.

BUT I'M BUMPING IT AFTER HALF A DAY BECAUSE THIS NEWS IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT.

We've been witnessing firsthand the dismantling of the EPA and the wanton government destruction of climate research.

Earth is on the precipice of environmental disaster and if the U.S. won't lead, businesses like Newgrounds need to step up.

This is why, starting today, Newgrounds is run by 100% RENEWABLE SOLAR.

No coal is burned and no earth is fracked to deliver your #1 source of web animation, games, art and music.

It's a small step but with many small steps we can go on long walks together.

Join us for this new chapter of Newgrounds. Thank you and have a sunny day!


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

this is the most important thing Newgrounds has ever done, bar none. Except... maybe the Street Fighter collab.

I, for one, applaud Newgrounds' newest initiative in alternative energy! You know how many gifs burn power per day? According to many sources that I totally know, it takes several thousand plants worth of power in order to run even 1/3 of total daily gif consumption, and that's not even including animations, jpegs, videos, smoke signals, or even the occasional telegram!

Here's to Tom Fulp, Our Great Leader, and his glorious reign; may Newgrounds be at the forefront of progress!

Just minutes ago I was getting annoyed by the glare on my screen and I was just about to close my window, but now I'm browsing Newgrounds lightning fast instead.

Haha, the pop-up scared me at first, but I kind of already knew what was going on. It was funny how my screen slowly went black like it was losing power.

The same thing happened to me when I typed April Fool's Day. Very funny, @TomFulp!

Try some old Flash games - they run really well now.

Well this certainly was the best time to join Newgrounds. I'll do my part in saving the planet as soon as I figure out what this "sun" is.

So, not really related, but as a dad I need to know: how often do you make awful "April" jokes in April?

It really sucks to live on Brazil. We get sort of an immunity to april fools quite early in here (due to heavy and sadistic pranks we experience - and perpetuate - even before we hit double digits) and only very rarely get caught on the good, funny pranks.

But this one got me. Good one! And I'm on a desktop!

Phew, I thought my computer was broken. I got shit in my pants. He he...

Now Trump is going to ban Newgrounds for not polluting everything with oil.
