Does anyone remember that "Portal Deletion Contest" that we had a few months ago? Well, after a long period of procrastination, we have finally put the winning cartoon in place! It came down to a few finalists, and for the longest time I was planning to use two, but in the end we decided to use the movie by George Daneliuc. It had the most impact and also made us laugh. :)
If you cast the deciding vote on a Portal movie that gets deleted, you will be treated to a special Flash movie!
The closest runner-up was by Gavin Kempenaar, and featured a samurai slicing an .swf file in half as it fell from a tree. I still plan to make an archive of some of the better submissions we received.
We have lots of unfinished plans here at Newgrounds! For a while now, we have actually been storing deleted Portal entries. Eventually, we will be launching The Portal Junkyard - a place where people can go to laugh at deleted movies.
We might also add other fun features, such as the "FINAL SAY" option where the person who casts the final vote gets to leave a special message that stays attached to the movie. Additionally, we might make it so your user profile tracks how
many Flash movies you have "shot down". We're just full of ideas.
Anyway, speaking of unfinished projects - Disorderly is in the final stages of development. All of the art and cinemas by Zeebarf are done, and I'm wrapping up the last of the programming. I sure hope people like this one! Zeebarf and I are already more excited about the next few games we are going to make. Maybe we'll get them out faster than this last one. :)
Blech... So what have I been up to? I spent a few days in LA last week discussing a new site (remember that poll we had about paying for adult content?). I'll have more about that as things progress.
What did everyone think of the Disney Atlantis article? Do you want to see more content like that on Newgrounds, or do you just want more Flash? Tell me what you think!
