Before we get to the winners of the Crypt of the NecroDancer fan art contest, some announcements:

@Sarkazm, of Lucky Day Forever fame, has launched a Kickstarter for Tsioque, a beautiful hand-drawn point and click adventure! Please support if you have the means and love Sarkazm or adventure games.

RealFaction is looking for a pixel artist for a game inspired by his NG tribute video.

@RealFaction also announced the winners for the Newgrounds Inspired Music contest. The top three won a "Steam Devs from NG" game package, containing Rogue Legacy, Super Chibi Knight, Lakeview Cabin and Potatoman Seeks the Troof!

@jato has released an Android game called Arlequin available on the Google Play store! Watch this video and snag it if you got Android!

NOTE: I originally forgot to check the unscouted entries and only listed eight winners. The list has been updated to showcase all twelve!

Robot Day winners are still coming. For an example of how hard it is to judge art: @MindChamber, @JohnnyUtah and @Luis all turned in their picks and each list is almost completely unique.

Have you been following the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation? The novice round ended last week, try and watch the entries this weekend. Votes and reviews are always appreciated!


Nightmare Cops, the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

Have anyone considered to make a periodic game jam here, something like Ludum Dare/ I mean this site is huge, has some appealing unique features based on a strong comunity, and every game jam hosted here brought many wonderful games to life. For the most people out there, when you say "Newgrounds" you say games, so why not to give the indie devs the chance of working on something cool and be motivated by the prizes and the glory, and you have to admit that there are few game jams out there where anybody can enter.

Or maybe I'm to stoned to be arround here, anyway thanks for your patience!

P.S: Congratulations to the winners!

I keep intending to have more gam jams but I keep totally failing at actually launching one.

Maybe it's a better alternative to organize two yearly game jams instead of all these "mini-jams", and the entrants can make their games in any software. Let's say you announce a theme, and the devs have a month to finish the game. Users can vote like in the monthly awards, then you, the staff and the sponsors decide which entry is the winner, including special awards like "best art", "people's choice" etc. I think the promotion won't be a problem since your site is already mega-famous, and I think that a lot of developers will become members only to participate :))

Big round of applause for the winners...

And I don't think my battered psyche can take much more of the waiting on these Robot Day results.


When I'm not spouting bullshit, I'm actually dead serious.

I don't really feel like organizing it. Maybe @Lich is up for it. He helped me last year.

Maan, I sent a piece for the contest as my first art submission but I wasn't aware of the scouting system until It was too late, totally my fault for not reading the rules first I guess. What a let down, I was somewhat proud of my entry

I'll upload more stuff later then, maybe I'll be able to participate next time. This Isn't the last you'll hear from me...

Hehe, now seriously, congrats to the winners !
