Newgrounds accepts games in SWF format as well as HTML and Unity games in a ZIP.
If you upload your game in a ZIP, you must have an index.html in the root of your zip. It will be loaded into an iframe on our view page. For best aesthetics, set topmargin=0 and leftmargin=0 in your body tag. For Unity, your index.html can include the Unity embed code to accompany the Unity game in your ZIP. This method can also be used to upload Flash games with multiple files.
You will see a preview your project before you publish it. If you upload a ZIP and see a 403 error, it is most likely because your index.html is in a folder and not in the root.
After you have uploaded your ZIP, be sure and check off any plugins your game requires.
Newgrounds accepts movies in SWF and most video formats (MP4, MOV, etc). They can all be uploaded via the same form.
Judgment Process for New Submissions
Game and movie submissions appear immediately on the site and go through a judgment phase.
If by 100 votes you have scored below a 1.7, your submission will be deleted, or blammed as we call it around here. If you pass the judgment phase, you submission may still be removed if it breaks the rules stated on the submission form.
If you are a sponsor or producer, please allow the developers to have their own accounts credited alongside yours in the submission. We like the real-people community vibe around here and fans will appreciate your games and movies more if they know who is actually making them.
Here are some quick guidelines specific to game and movie submissions:
- You may submit a maximum of two per day.
- If your filesize limit is too small, you may request a raise.
- Submissions may be edited and files may be updated.
