This is an exciting development for newgrounds. I wonder if in the future more ng favorites will make it to games or even tv series.
Think of the site in ten years when producers from all mediums can look here for promising and original artists like synj. Newgrounds could become a powerhouse of normalcy. Media that comes directly from the populace instead of from just the upper class could dominate the national audience.
Now with the audio portal the showcase potential of the site has expanded greatly. If unsigned bands start catching on they could advertise entire albums here and eventually you would have an ng record label.
It's amazing how a little fanzine has become the missing piece of the technology puzzle of the 21st century. Now not only does nearly everybody have the tools to create any kind of media with proffesional quality, but they have a place to get that media seen and possibly broadcast to a national audience.

being the consumer whore that i am, i will buy all three.
Maybe the things wouldnt take as long to load if you didnt have 3 popup ads running per window? Remember when newgrounds used to be cool and DIDNT ass rape browsers with popup ads? Ah, the joy of capitalism.

i didnt mean to break anyrules. well, i just hope ill be able to review again soon. Maybe tom will see this. Its not sexual harassment, im just trying to hit on the authors!
Holy .. poo! That's gonna be awesome.. I'll be sure get a copy for each system since my uncle owns Microplay! This is gonna be sooo sweet.. and I wanna meet synj.. but I don't live anywhere nere there... damn..but also.. yah.. the new software should be good.. and once the new servers come in.. it should free up the site a little more. also.. new servers every month? :O Tha'ts a little overboad.. maybe like one every 1-3 months.. or clean out and upgrade some of the old ones.. that would help..
Also.. will it eventaully come out for pc.. because that would be easy to do.. easier then console games.. and you and synj and some other authors should make like a collabaration of games / movies.. and make them for console and pc.. this is probably going to make NG go out of the box and into the lives of not just the internet.. but local folk too ! :)
sounds pretty cool about alien hominid, hope you guys are able to keep your release date, it would be a nice christmas gift
oh man this is huge...though this means a lot of things...i can only think of the millions of new users coming in and clogging the bandwidth :S...but the game...OH MAN
Yo Tom not 2 critasize u but shouldn't u let Sony, Microsoft & Nintendo decide 2 release Alien Hominid on their platforms
Hmm...Maybe after christmas you could make pico 2 for the console
You are seriously making me buy a ps2! now i haev to, i have no choice!

What's your problem with them? If he sells the game through them, people are more likely to buy the game. If it's only sold through NG for the PC, then only about 2,560 people are going to buy it. And that would be a sad, because that's only about $25k in the bank. I only have a GC, a GBA, and a Mac, so there are a lot of games I can't get (GTA, Half-Life, etc...) But if AH comes out for all three systems, I'll fork over $40-$50 for each version I can use. I'm sure if they release it for the three biggies, they'll make it big.
But, hell. What do I know? I'm only 14. Maybe discussing marketing is out of my league...
omg dude! im shakeing a little bit after hearing that. am i gona be able to pick it up in the store like a normal game, or will i have to order it be delivered by the angels?(or off the site, i live in texas)

Yeah is it coming out in England? I'd definitely buy a copy. Hey Tom!! Don't forget about your English fans!!!
Oh lord! This is a great thing and a milestone for NG and synj industries! Imagine the fame and the income! The adds at NG will be more expensive and the cash will keep coming! The usuall NG fan/lover/maniac that don't prouce good flash can contribute!
Letting the game out before Christmas would be a nice sales thingy. Will this game be realised in Europe, in PAL version, and when? I'd hate it if I couldn't get it.
Thats cool! Alien hominid for the consol! but you know if you put in the name newgrounds in the game that means much more visitors wich means a lot slower website!
The thing is, not everyone knows about Newgrounds, so if a game did come out, what would sales be like? There would have to be TV ads, probably a special of Tom's favorite animation... Just to put over the idea. I am not a gamer, but I have a PS2, and I would check out your game Tom... Because Newgrounds is my favorite site; and you and Synj are great.
How you doin?

omg, all i can say is good luck! it's amazing how much this site has grown over the past few years, and it's never going to stop by the look of it.
sounds great, i would get it for the almighty Xbox, but nooo.. microsoft is lame and they want me to pay $99 bucks for them to fix my faulty Xbox.. now cmon.. ive had many systems before and none of them have EVER broken before.. now my Xbox breaks and they want me to pay the price of practically a new one for them to fix it.. dont know what im going to do..
ugh rushing a videogame for christmas release is never a good idea i hope you guy dont snap under the pressure.
OMFG! Alien Hominid 4 teh x-box! Tat ez soooooooo 1337!!!!21!!22@211!
Just had to get it out of my system.
What. The. Fudge. AH on all 3 systems? Dude, fame will be knocking at your door, as well as 50 million hysterical fans. The other bajillion people will be making accounts on NG. Competition for exp and b/p's will be tough! There will be a whole lot of posts lying in the archives, growing excessively larger by the day.
I want to know if Australian shores will see a release of the game. If it comes out here, you can count on me buying a copy, plus recomending it to all my friends. It'll be my way to give something back to NG.
This is a rare oppurtunity Tom. Play your cards right, and a whole load of stuff will come your way.
I'll probably read this in ten minutes and facepalm. - RageVI
