I updated the Pixel Day prize info over the weekend to include Iconoclasts Steam keys for the top three winners in each category. Iconoclasts has been in development for seven years and will coincidentally be released ON Pixel Day, January 23rd. NG will be celebrating with a special Iconoclasts site skin by creator Joakim ‘konjak ‘ Sandberg!
We’re already one week into 2018 and I’m wrapping up various 2017 odds and ends like 1099 and 1042-S forms for tax season. You know, the fun stuff.
We have one thing to wrap up from 2017 that actually is fun; the Best of December!

There were a lot of great Ludum Dare 40 entries last month, thank you everyone who shared yours on NG.
Thank you everyone who participated in December, you delivered a strong finish to 2017! Seriously, take a good look back at Newgrounds over the last year and compare it to what was happening on the rest of the Internet.
We’re expecting great things in Q1 2018 with some big site updates and events like Pixel Day, the DBZ Collab and NG in Space. Heck, we already opened the year with Black Crystal, sure to compete with some of the best animations of all time here on NG.
I’m pumped for what is coming and as usual, none of this would be possible without the help of supporters. Please consider becoming one if you aren’t already! Your support goes a long way towards ongoing hosting and development, reducing third party ads and ultimately building a bigger, better rev share system for artists. We have many of the pieces in place to create a near-perfect ecosystem for creators, we just need to find enough people willing to pay $3 a month or $25 per year to see it happen. Will you be one of them in 2018?
