This past month we updated blogs with a mobile-friendly text editor and added blog tags with auto-suggestion. We also updated the Art Portal upload form using the new text editor for commentary, allowing you to upload WIPs and alt images in the commentary space. Art also now has tag auto-suggestion and a new cropping tool that works well on mobile and for animated gifs. Trying blogging and sharing some of your art!


We also enjoyed a lot of great animation and games. Your votes are in and the Best of January have been determined!


Top Five Movies



The top ranked animation based on original material and winner of $250 is Starbarians. Congrats @HappyHarry!

Reclaim Reality was featured due to being a really ambitious project and it appears the best-of-month voters agreed.

Thank you everyone who participated in January! We were treated to new episodes of Salad Fingers, Starbarians and Madness, along with all the goodness that came from Pixel Day and the Global Game Jam. I want to call January a non-stop joy ride but there was some really sad news too; AngelXMikey passed away after a long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. We’ll keep celebrating his life here on NG though.


Pixel Day judging is wrapping up, expect those results next.

The quality this month was something else. Every single one of the top 5 animated is this powerhouse showing the absolute top of the line in style, atmosphere, collaboration, choreography, and illustration. Months like this are golden, where so many seasoned and not so seasoned artists unload the best of the best, and I hope it inspires everyone to keep making this crazy shit :0


Good.

What a difference this was compared to last month's line-up! Greatness all the way. I'm sure AngelXMikey would've liked it too. Let the creative lifelines never die; inspiration keep coursing through the veins of these grounds for all time.


Congrats to the winners! Very well-deserved.

Pretty interesting, in my opinion, that Starbarians beat out Salad Fingers for the top spot. I'm not saying that's a good or bad thing, just that it's pretty remarkable! Congrats to all the winners, and the runners-up - in particular @ChutneyGlaze with that notably dark entry in the saga.

We just need David Firth to get off his ass and give us a proper Jerry Jackson. :P That's how he can win this thing for sure.

Oh, I... thought I wasn't supposed to vote for Adult-rated content in the monthly voting. Congratulations to all the winners! It was actually a really good month and there were some tough decisions to be made :x

Really enjoyed the two games that @Jacklehamster put out this month. His Baby Hitler one was really charming and I'm glad it made it into the top five. Hope to see a lot more from him in the future!
