Dot Dot Dot, Webcasting 2011-01-11 14:54:59


This past week, RicePirate and D-Mac-Double made Dot Dot Dot, a typography animation set to a dramatic reading of a review of Rhete's Super PSTW Action RPG.

It ended up being a hit beyond the walls of NG though, with coverage on Kotaku and endless forums across the web.

On Sunday, Super PSTW RPG hit the front page of Reddit and we got 72,913 referrals - overall Super PSTW was hit 99,987 times in one day. This is a game that had been out of the spotlight since 2009!

It's a reminder that NG can really be a bubble, and the things we enjoy would be enjoyed by a lot more people if we just GOT OUT THERE more.

If you feel like hanging out and chatting, for the next few minutes+ I'll be testing out our video stream. It's a combination of direct computer output mixed with a microphone, in the hope that we'll eventually do more / better webcasting from the office.

The Game Jam and Winter Flash-Off winners are forthcoming!

Anyway, I believe that tools like twitter and facebook are very powerful to actually get content seen by a larger public. Then again that's pretty logical. Apparently reddit does its job well too, but I can't say I've every really gotten into that site.

Here's a suggestion (which may be pretty useless since you may have already implemented in the upcoming redesign): Add quick links to share on twitter or facebook. They're pretty much the biggest sharing platforms out there that really make things go viral.

Make sure it doesn't blow up the servers though, lol.

Tom you should really get competitions that bring in video mediums so youtube members can participate. I think that could draw some more attention.

I plan on making a video competition when I release my next game for some extra advertising on youtube :)

That submission got so much attention? Wow...

It's pretty funny and well set-up and all, but it's basically an NG inside joke about the quality of some of the reviews on this website. You wouldn't expect that anyone outside of NG would care for it.

Anyway, nice to know we're in the spotlights once again :)

If you seen the review axeman did on the audio of it, and the reply he got. I would agree that he is royally pissed.

I in my honest opinion can't blame him for being pissed, but I guess he deserved it. The game gave me a few laughs, like it was supposed to.

Bad reviews for no "reson" or without seeing the point through the author's eyes should be deleted and not scored.
But I guess something like that may never happen.

All in all, Axeman is pissed, I lol'd hard at the audio and game.

Nice to see the Staff is still using the broadcast section in the site. And those were a lot of referrals and hits!

Tom;
- Speaking of broadcasting via the web and whatnot, I was on a webinar (web-seminare) for sounddesigners just a few hours back. they used this: http://www.instantpresenter.com/

IMO that was great for tutorial/class-type broadcasting.

Perhaps it would be cool to have something similiar if somone from the staff (or from outside NG staff) want to do some kind of live class/tutorial/course for NG'ers?

It's not for free, unfortunatley, but it well may be worth looking up!

I would like to see DOT DOT DOT like reviews by Stamper...

Just a suggestion.

Personally, I think it's hugely overrated on Newgrounds

Current Score: 4.72 / 5.00

but if it attracts attention off of NG, who cares? Good for them.
