Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 226 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Happy Pixel Day everyone!

Today is NG's third annual Pixel Day, a celebration of classic gaming aesthetic. Anyone can participate by making original pixel art, animation, games or chiptunes!

The winner in each category will receive $100 and three winners in each category will receive a Steam key for Iconoclasts, available today on PC and PS4! We're celebrating the Iconoclasts launch with a site skin by creator Joakim 'konjak' Sandberg.

To promote Pixel Day on socia media, we commissioned a Pixel Day Logo by @puppiesandanime. We're hoping to see a lot of fresh faces today; the goal is for Pixel Day to become bigger each year and be like Christmas morning for pixel aficionados. I'm already making a list of all the things we should do and features we should have ready for next year.

Please spread the word to your favorite pixel, pico-8 and chiptune artists, if you'd like to see them drop in on NG today and share something!

Special thanks to @RealFaction, who pitched the first Pixel Day in 2016 and will assist with judging this year.

Thank you in advance to everyone who participates!

Happy Pixel Day!

Happy Pixel Day!

Seen some pretty awesome artistry popping up in the portal already, looking forward to what more amounts... and the background skin's pretty pleasing! Good to hear the tradition will just keep going and expanding from here on out!
