The Wacom Winners for 2007. Dec. 23rd, 2007 @ 01:21 PM Reply

Lots of artists from the NG "collective" have been doing great things lately. Here's just a few!

LiLg won the Kraft contest! Go congratulate him.

Also, GoshaDole's DDR video has been featured in the new DDR Universe 2 for Xbox 360! Go congratulate him, too!

Three NG contributors are finalists in the 2008 Independent Games Festival!

Tommunism is up for the technical excellence award for his XNA title, Goo! Additionally, Edmund and Florian (Komix) have been nominated for best web game with Tri-Achnid, proudly sponsored by NG!

Tommunism prepared this montage in honor of the nomination.

If you aren't familiar with the IGF, you can read up on our previous years at the event:

IGF 2005 - Edmund wins big with Gish and proposes to his now-wife Danielle, while our console version of Alien Hominid sweeps three awards!

IGF 2006 - Dan Paladin and I hang out with Edmund and Dustball and celebrate when Dad 'n Me wins for best web game!

IGF 2007 - We meet the dudes behind Gamma Bros and our upcoming Xbox 360 Live Arcade game Castle Crashers wins two awards!

I don't plan on attending the 2008 IGF because NOTHING MUST GET IN THE WAY OF FINISHING CASTLE CRASHERS. In a perfect world, Castle Crashers would have been released this year and I would be a nominee for best web game with PIXEL PUNCHER, but I need to finish CC before I can finish PP. So I got some hefty goals weighing me down right now.

Next year, NG will pay the entree fees for some of the best games from NG who want to enter the IGF. I already have my sights set on the new Paladin game, which has wrapped up just in time to be considered for a Tank Award! I've re-posted the trophy pic, so scroll down if you haven't seen it.

FINALLY, I can't forget to mention all the Wacom tablets we're giving out this year! I posted an invite for applicants two weeks ago and received hundreds of applications from artists in need! YES, I did read ALL of them and No, I did not reply to ANY of them. I learned last year that any sort of reply resulted in a false sense of hope, so rather than give anyone hope, I just quietly made a long list. I made note of everyone who DESERVED a tablet, then made note if everyone I DEFINITELY wanted to give a tablet to. The final stage involved trimming down the list to actually match the available tablets - I had to cut a lot of people who I REALLY wanted to give tablets to. I showed favortism to people who participated heavily in NG over the past year, and also to young artists who have a bright future ahead of them.

Reading the requests has been really inspiring; my goal is to some day be able to give a tablet to every NG contributor who needs one. Here's who is getting a tablet this year, ranked in the order that I jotted down their info.

6x8 Intuos 3

1. Moosh
2. Mogly
3. MetalDart
4. JoeandTom
5. Nobbin-Robin
6. DarkShadow8181

6x11 Intuos 3

1. Catoblepas

ONE MORE THING... The penicorns are no longer being offered in the store, but will return when we launch the new store in the new year. If you are one of the hundreds of people (THANKS!!!) who bought a penicorn, you should put your penicorn through an adventure!

Tom, have you ever considered the fact that you work WAY TOO HARD? Take a break once in a while, dude. Anyway, I bought X-Box Live 2 months ago for the sole purpose of getting Castle Crashers on day one and pulling an all nighter to beat it with a couple friends, so don't let me down! The tank trophies look awesome, but the best part about them is the room for improvement and more awards for next year.

And, of course, my congrats to the Wacom Winners, LilG, and the rest.

Har har har

This stuff is really cool. Since I haven't been around for a while, I can't wait to see the info of what happened during 2007. The whole story of Newgrounds is great.


I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

There's a lack of Christmas submissions on the front page. Are you really thinking about the East this year or will it be filled on the actual day?

And why is the tank trophy on a post again?

Congratulations to all the people who are nominated in IGF, to all those who won their tablets (some of you really do deserve them), and those of you who bought penicorns! Tom, could I just mention one thing. I think that sometimes, you might just look at if a game is in a contest or something and before posting, such as for the Paladin game, seeing as it partly goes by views, just think about how it can also affect others in the contest. I'm not in the same contest as him, but just thought I'd mention that.
