Cool, another NG creator doing stuff in the big(ger) leagues. I'm happy with 28th place as far as mine and Chutney's movie goes. It's pretty good for my first one! And hey, 3 of the things I voted for got into the top 5s!

Congrats to the winners! Some of my own picks are in the top. You earned it!

On the Tsioque-side of the news, I immediately bought the game and started a Let's Play in German for those interested.

It's a fun and beautiful game!


You find Let's Plays in German of some Flash games here on Newgrounds on my YouTube channel

I think so sometimes as well. Seems like popular stuff always wins, and anything by lesser-known artists (unless it's very high quality) just gets forgotten as the month goes on.

Also second post.

Damn, disappointed that my animation didn't make the top 40, but I think a lot of that may have been due to the timing of it, releasing it right at the end of the month.
But that's okay! I don't do it for any rewards, but it is motivation to improve heaps more for the next episode ;)

Congrats to the top 5 in both movies and games! It was a pretty solid month of entries, surprised that some of the ones I chose didn't make top 5.

Toytopia has been vexing me because it's really well done and well reviewed but got ultra low engagement while it was on the front page - people simply weren't clicking the thumbnail. As a result not a lot of people saw it, hurting it's chances to get a lot of votes.

In general I think thumbnails with title graphics don't get as many clicks - the characters were also kinda small and the image doesn't look like it compressed as cleanly as it could have on our end. I'd be curious to see how it does with a clearer, larger single character "action" thumbnail.

Ooh thanks for the tips! I had no idea what to put as a thumbnail and thought that something rather general may have worked for the first episode. I might look into changing the thumbnail, maybe even just working on a bunch of different thumbnail drawings that can be used for this episode and future episodes.
It could very well be the thumbnail itself that held it back which would be unfortunate but no matter, just another thing to improve on haha
