Welcome to the Drawing Grounds, the first-ever multiplayer game using the Newgrounds API! :)

If you get stuck on a loading screen, simply refresh the page! :D

This game is very dependent on the API. If it fails to connect, try refreshing the page.
All feedback is welcome!

Special thanks to everyone who helped me test this out and gave feedback!

Awesome not bad though.

A really amazing adition to the Newgrounds selection of games. Although, it could use a reandom game maker, just so you don't have to type in a random name.

Mattster responds:

That's why there's a "RANDOM" button right below the area where you type a game ;)

Hands down, the best game on Newgrounds (in my opinion). Only suggestion is to keep adding new things to draw. Otherwise, awesome work!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I love the game, this is a revitalizingly fresh idea and the multiplayer content being the basis of the game, witout a competitive aspect, is amazing. I have only a few suggestions, some of which have been mentioned, that keep this from a perfect 5 stars.
A way to organize games being played: "At least sort games waiting for our turn to the top. Don't show a game on the list until turn 2; the hanging turn 1 games are just clutter." -- dbw
"Add a fill tool! " -- dbw
Add a shape maker, such as to make rectangles or triangles (which is pretty hard to do with a circular drawing shape)
I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing it, but with a specific player, I am required to empty my cache after every turn because the game is saved. This shouldn't be necessary, it requires me to restart the game.
I look forward to a game even better than Draw Something! Kudos, sir!

Great suggestions!
I am looking into a new way of sorting games. Currently there is a bug causing games to not show up if you have too many. I like the idea of hiding the 1 turn games.
I don't intend on adding a fill/shape marker. If you look at what has been accomplished already, it is pretty amazing. I feel that it shows the talent people have when limited to 1 tool.
As for the cache issue, I will take a look into this.
Thanks a lot for the review!
