Today is the official start of our Wick Editor game jam!
Wick Editor is a free, open-source, web-based tool for making animation and games. It’s a lot like Flash, so anyone who has worked with Flash should be able to quickly find their way around. These tutorials will also help!
May 22 Update: Here's a new Interactive Project Tutorial based on the Wick Alpha!
“FLASHBACK!" Classic Newgrounds-style games.
What kind of games do you think of when you hear “Classic NG style games”? Those are the games we wanna see!
If you’re thinking of Dress Up games and Dating Sims, please be aware that we will not be selecting adult games as winners.
Tag your entry with “WickJam2019” so we find it!
All project must be made using the Wick Editor alpha! (alpha.wickeditor.com).
NOTE: The Alpha editor was in need of additional updates at the time this jam launched. Updates have been rolling out rapidly and we've added a week to the deadline (from June 30th to July 7th) to give everyone more time. I will also update this post with new tutorial videos based on the alpha version when they become available. Despite a bumpy start, the feedback from this jam has already resulted in a lot of great Wick improvements!

Once you’ve made a game, you can export it as a ZIP file and upload that ZIP to Newgrounds via our Project System. You’ll be able to preview your game on NG before you publish; let me know if you run into any trouble. We’re excited to see what you can make with Wick!
Also sorry if you were hoping for a John Wick Jam but feel welcome to make a John Wick animation in Wick, you can upload it as an MP4 or share it as an animated gif right in this thread.
If you missed it, Pico Day winners were announced on Wednesday and the Epic Battle Fantasy Art Contest winners were announced on Monday. Last week we announced the Best of April and New Content Filters!
