Thank you to everyone who participated in Pico Day, as well those of you who made the trip to Philly for our party! We’re motivated to give the party another go in 2020; probably something bigger than the 100+ people this year but not as big and messy as 2016, as epic as that was. Not to mention 2020 is the 25 year anniversary of NG!
The Pico Day party this year was made possible by @IvanAlmighty, who went above and beyond to create a cool event for everyone at the PhilaMOCA. I’d also like to thank @Bob, who got his Honda Element fixed just to help move equipment and coolers downtown and back. Thank you to @Luis for herding everyone to the Spruce Street Harbor Park on Friday night. Thank you @moawling for bringing disposable cameras and @PhantomArcade for the kickass Blue Omen trailer and additional help! Thank you Bill Z for taking a lot of great pictures. Thank you everyone who helped set up and tidy up. Everyone was super kind and courteous throughout the whole weekend, affirming once again that Newgrounds is the best community on the Internet.

On Friday we’ll be announcing the theme of our Wick Editor Jam. Everyone will have from Friday until June 30th to make a game with Wick Editor, a free, open-source, web-based tool that is very similar to Flash!
