Lots of news!

Pit People Release

Pit People, the new fast-paced, turn-based co-op adventure from the Behemoth, released today on Steam and Xbox One!

To celebrate, we're hosting a Pit People Art Contest! Ten winners will receive free Steam keys. Click that link for details.

Faves on Content

The info boxes for animations, games, art and audio now include the number of Faves, listed under Views. You can click the total to see the individual users who have faved something (this info has always been public via individual user pages). You can also sort the list by date faved, username and user popularity.

Supporter Drive Update

Thank you everyone who has become a Supporter! The Sad Tom banner has been quite effective, as we currently have 1,727 active supporters - the most ever. As a thank you and experiment, we've removed Sad Tom from content pages and are leaving the top banner space empty, making those pages better for EVERYONE with less ads than ever. I'd love to do this long-term but a lot more people will need to become supporters. Please consider the recurring monthly or annual subscription option, so you can support NG for the long-haul!

Artists & developers, imagine if your content on NG had no ads and you didn't have to ask people for money, yet you still got paid based on the success of your work - THAT is the dream for the Supporter system if it ever gets big enough! Our goal for now is increased monthly prizes when we hit 2,500 active supporters.

NG Philly Meetup this Weekend

IvanAlmighty has organized a Philly meetup tomorrow night, Saturday, March 3rd! We're meeting at Revolutions bowling at 6pm and some of us will end up at Barcade. See Ivan's post for more info and maybe we'll see you there!

Some Music to Listen To

I don't know if I'll be able to keep it up but I've been dabbling with making monthly playlists of new stuff I hear on NG. Here are February and January. Click the thumbnail on any entry to play the whole list via an in-page player. You can do this anywhere music is listed, with the exception of user pages which have been a big project but are up next.

The Story Goes On

@BrandyBuizel just released The Story Goes On on both Steam and Xbox One! To celebrate and also help NG, he's giving away ten free copies to random people who reply to his thread in the Supporter Forum.

Construct 3 Jam

We will be revealing the theme of our next Construct 3 Jam this Thursday, March 8th!

This has been one of those "on the wishlist forever" features that was messy to implement with our old favorites system. Happy to have it finally see reality!

Pit People was a lot of fun when I played it at RTX last year! Can't wait for the release! I hope the Philly meet up goes well too. Sounds like fun!

Yeah!

The Switch is the gaming system of the future, just like NewGrounds.

Damn I didn't expect it so soon!! This is a really good step to more connectivity, I wonder if people could even be notified about favorites or if that becomes too much of a numbers game. Either way, this and reactions are a great way to make things feel seen if something doesn't have reviews/comments, good shit man!

That actually is a planned feed update. Popular artists will likely choose to mute it in their feed but for most people it will be fun to know whenever someone faves their work!

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSS!!!

This is a fantastic feature, and I think it can help motivate creators on the site. I believe a similar feature used to exist in the past, so it's nice to see it back. Not sure if you're around anymore @Step, but your old wish has come true, haha :'D
Awesome stuff here!

Awesome news. :) Saw that fave count thing before the post and was just wondering if it might have been there since the redesigned Game/Movie pages and I just didn't notice... really cool. Guess this will be all on the front-end now, not via the Projects pages like they used to?

Good fortune to Pit People! Hope it tops all the lists! All good stuff going on.
