Bye Bye 2011 2011-12-30 11:45:42


This has been a great week for games!

Kajenx released William and Sly 2. Compare it to the original to see how far it has come!

Zeebarf and EntropicOrder released the latest in The Visitor series. Here's a recap of the series:

The Visitor also crosses over with the Reemus series of point and click games.

We're finishing the week (and the year) off with one of the coolest games of 2011, Outpost:Haven!

You last saw Squize on the front page with DN8:

Soooo... That about wraps up 2011. I really have to thank EVERYONE who has contributed this year because due to the redesign, we failed to launch a single site enhancement in 2011. This will all change in 2012. January 11th will mark the release of Abobo's Big Adventure and in place of that Abobo promo we'll be introducing the REDESIGN LAUNCH COUNTDOWN. The date on this countdown will be the final, guaranteed date of launch (although expect NG to be down for a while on launch day).

Once the redesign is live and bugs have been crushed, expect a year of aggressive improvements to NG. We have a big list of features broken into small chunks, allowing for monthly deployments vs years of waiting. If you even mildly enjoyed 2011 on NG, 2012 should be like a rollercoaster ride. Or maybe that's a bad analogy since we're gonna go UP UP UP without ever coming down... So I guess it will be like you died and went to heaven. SEEYA NEXT YEAR!!!

My reward is finally arriving. And this countdown starts a week before the Manchester meet.

2011 was a bit of a slow year, but 2012 will be something special.

I got a boner just thinking about seeing a countdown to the redesign. Up up up!

2011 was a wild year ... natural disasters, economic degradation, and revolt around the world.

Newgrounds has certainly been a bright spot amongst the chaos.

I like to think 2012 will not just be a better year for NG but a better year for the world... Looking forward to better days. :)

Stoked for the redesign, I have to say NG is one of the only places on the internet where a redesign doesn't mean a giant pain in the ass that is impossible to get used to!

That's just awesome!

Now I'm definitely looking forward to 2012. Can't wait!

It's strange that while 2011 has been an extremely calm year for the website it was quite the opposite. I think it's great that the redesign is nearing completion - I'm very excited to finally hear that it's on the verge of completion along with the new features it will usher in through the door. Bring on the new year. :D

We are all like Tom's little pet hamsters, and he always makes sure we have fresh sawdust, our running wheels are oiled for squeak-resistance, and he is CONSTANTLY PUTTING NEW TOYS IN OUR CAGES.

I love Newgrounds. Looking forward to 2012, too; I sure hope it is better than 2011!

It's okay for a site downage, because the redesign is gonna be here! Or so I hope, hehe. But I'm just itching for 2012 to come around, especially since I haven't been as active as I should be on these forums. Thanks, Tom!

So I guess it will be like you died and went to heaven. SEEYA NEXT YEAR!!!

Can't wait, can't wait. Hope that everyone sticks around for the "agressive" movements!

I'm just wondering for 2011. Who won the Treasure Hunt back in October?

Great.

Once the redesign is live and bugs have been crushed, expect a year of aggressive improvements to NG. We have a big list of features broken into small chunks, allowing for monthly deployments vs years of waiting.

Will the chat be introduced? The current portal replacement link is shut down and not working.

As of yesterday there's 31.3% of the icons left to create, so in the past few weeks we've gotten past the two thirds done mark. The majority of the flashes that do not have icons are relatively obscure, so temporarily I doubt that they will receive much attention while everybody finish off the final chunk. Thus long as, like is done now, all new flashes require them the problem shouldn't be getting worse, and with the pace of a few people (Asandir being a prime example) the percentage is rising quickly. I intend to dedicate a single day of next month purely to going through and creating icons, and plan to create 150-odd just in that day, in addition to my usual more gradual speed.
