Monday is the start of our Construct 3 Jam in partnership with Scirra and the theme has been announced:

"Good Things Come in Threes."

The Construct 3 Beta has been available for several weeks now with limited features but starting Monday, ALL features will be available to EVERYONE for the two weeks of the jam. Take some time this weekend to think about your game idea and dabble with the beta, while preparing to go full steam starting Monday.

Construct 3 works in your browser and doesn't require any previous programming knowledge. There are tutorials that will show you how it works, I highly recommend anyone interested in game development has a look! You can even export for Xbox One if you get ambitious.

Shout out to @Rucklo for help with judging the music entries.

Thank you everyone who participated in Pico Day this year, it's been cool to see this event continue for TWELVE years now!

One of our Supporter stretch goals this month is to cover the remaining $850 in prize money, after having raised more than half of it last month.

Please consider becoming a monthly supporter, it's only $2.99 per month and helps us transition from a dying ad model! Single month and one year purchases are appreciated as well but we build a lot of strenth from monthly recurring subscriptions. I think there are enough NG fans out there for us to have 10,000 monthly subs - are you one of them?

Coming up: @Butzbo will be releasing an awesome Dinomelt demo on NG and we have big site updates rumbling towards launch. User pages are moving to our mobile friendly layout but they are getting a more custom treatment than the other new pages, in an effort to make them feel more uniquely YOURS. We will be very interested in your feedback as these roll out!

I'm so embarrassed I'm looking forward trying to make a game for the first time but the theme is confusing, I'm thinking matching three games if that's the theme

Basically a celebration of the site and the content on it, a sort of "I <3 NG day". You can make art/games/movies/music that represent the spirit of the site and the community; a lot of people use iconic characters from the site's history but you can do something different so long as it's still relevant to Newgrounds. Comes around every April 30th or so

Looking forward to delivering some when they do! :D Cool news overall, cool to see the supporter base grown, and Pico Day still bringing out the craziest in animators, and... good stuff overall.

Also Congrats to the winners! Going to check out the ones I've missed...

There are lots of things you can do with a theme of three... Three playable characters with different abilities, three abilities for one character, three tasks to accomplish, etc. The more creative the better but you can be pretty loose with it.
