Pico Day is this Sunday! Pico Day is a celebration of all things NG, where everyone is encouraged to fan out on their favorites with animation, games, art and music.
There is a $2,000 prize pool for winners and we're hoping we can cover as much of that as possible with supporter revenue this month.
We've hit our monthly base goal (thank you!!!) and are $268 into our stretch goal of $2k for Pico Day. Please consider becoming a supporter and helping us reach the goal! Monthly and annual subscriptions are extremely helpful, as they build a consistent ongoing budget. Our monthly goal is meant to be an achieveable goal but it doesn't come close to covering all expenses. With more supporters NG can reduce third party ads and ultimately create more financial insentive for people to share their work here. It's difficult to transition from a failing ad model but I know we can do it with your help. Every single person counts with this.
Earlier this month we overhauled dumping grounds, eliminating the secondary page where you upload files and making it display better on mobile. Now you can drag files right into the main page and instantly generate pages for them, making everything a little quicker for everyone.
Next up is a big user page update that will be mobile friendly while introducing drag and drop user pic replacement, user page headers and a new image crop tool that works better for mobile users. Ongoing site development would not be possible without support from the community, so once again THANK YOU to everyone who supports NG! We're working to make every page mobile friendly, with additional improvements along the way.
If you made a game for Ludum Dare 38, we are featuring web entries here on NG. Upload and tag your game with "ludumdare38" to be included.
Also don't miss our Flinthook Art Contest, Art Inspired Music Contest and the upcoming Construct 3 Game Jam. If you've never made a game before, the Construct 3 Jam will be a fun way to try and you can do it entirely in your web browser.
Thanks for reading! There's a good chance I'll be live streaming with @PhantomArcade3000 and @IvanAlmighty this Sunday at the NG office. We aren't having the traditional office party this year but we can still have a Pico Day web party.
