The voter of the month and winner of honorary Supporter status is @SPIRIT6666!

Thank you everyone who participated in January, especially with Pixel Day! There's always cool stuff to see, hear and play around here. It's Just TIC TAC TOE was an especially fun surprise; I almost missed it due to the unassuming thumbnail. It's a reminder that we need to do another Treasure Hunt around here.

January had some unpleasant surprises too, like the weeks we spent chasing some pesky performance issues. The good news is, those issues are solved and NG is running super snappy!

Next up is the Dragon Ball Z collab and NG in Space, a March spectacular featuring new episodes of Starbarians, Space James, Captain Tardigrade and potentially others! If you've been wanting to release something with a space theme, March would be a good time to join in the fun.

Best of January 2018

I should have a new space-themed Crypt Shyfter adventure ready to go for March! I'll finally be wrapping up The Atomic Angel. This month was rough for me due to some seasonal depression but I made a lot of progress the past couple days.

It's my first time working with another writer- @funkmachine did the heavy lifting for this one and the story turned out really cool, and @phantomarcade made really badass artwork for it. I'm also expecting to see a few songs from @thedoubleone and a maybe a couple other folks.

Can't wait to watch the new Starbarians!!

I'm thinking about setting up another NYC meet in March 2020, 10 years after the last one. I know the crowd dwindled year after year up until 2013 when I just threw in the towel and said this just isn't worth it anymore. I gave up back then for similar reasons why you didn't organize Pico Day in 2017: setting up these things isn't easy from a managerial POV, and sometimes people just lose it after drinking too much. But I guess there are certain little things that make it all worth it in the end. It's been almost 8 years since we all went here, and I remember posing for this pic, not knowing how iconic it'd later be.

Elvis & Dimmi almost not in the Top 5?! Unexpectedly close call there... a parody majority as usual, but lotsa great stuff overall! Props on the original ones especially! Congrats to the winners!

Would love to get to one of those meets some day, maybe some day...

Good fixing those performance issues too. Shizzle was a bit slow some days.
