Knightin’+ Art Contest


Knightin’+ will be making its big debut on Steam later this month and to celebrate, we’re hosting a fan art contest!


You can play the Knightin’+ demo here on Newgrounds:



To participate in the contest, create some Knightin’+ fan art and upload it to the Art Portal by August 4th at 11:59PM EST. Use the tag Knightin so that we’re sure to find it.


@Wolod himself will be selecting his ten favorite entries and they will be awarded Steam keys for Knightin’+!


If art isn’t your thing, Wolod is hosting a giveaway as well, improving your chances of snagging a free copy.


Add Knightin’+ to your Steam Wishlist so you get notified when it launches!

Site Updates


Over the next week or two we’ll be rolling out some large under-the-hood changes to NG. If all goes well, you won’t even notice it happening. Don’t hesitate to PM me if you notice any bugs, though!


JULY 23rd - These updates are complete! Site running nice and snappy for you?


My Friend Pedro Art & Wick Game Jam winners were announced last Friday, if you missed it.


Don’t miss the latest @ACoupleOfCrickets podcast, either!



NG came up this week in two subreddits:


https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/cddpm5/it_was_a_journey/

https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/cddq2p/flash_is_ending_in_2020/


Some people think NG is gonna close up shop in 2020 but in reality, most of of the stuff uploaded here in recent years doesn't require Flash. We'll soon be bringing Newgrounds Player out of supporter-only beta as a desktop solution for running Flash content and Mike has been making progress with in-browser emulation. I love the idea of people coming to Newgrounds in 2021 and being struck by how much cool stuff is here, both old and new.


If you'd like to support NG's past, present and future, consider becoming a supporter! It's just three bucks a month or $25 for the year and you get a bunch of perks while NG gets less dependent on running ads.

Been thinking the same thing lately! What happened to the summer jam?


Also thanks again for the Crickets shoutout, Tom!


Good luck to everyone doing the Knightin'+ contest, I'll be keeping an eye out for some cool art!

I'm waiting for NG animation contests because lately I've been kinda getting stale, feeling unmotivated. It doesn't even have to be a summer jam. Heck, it would be interesting to see some Fall Jams.

I'm tempted to prep a list of like 20-30 songs to choose from - could make sure they are all a reasonable length, don't contain third party samples / aren't remixes or covers... Plus the constraint might help people who would otherwise get overwhelmed trying to pick from EVERYTHING.

What about a jam encouraging a certain type of animation we see little on the site, like stop motion or rotoscoping?

Stop motion jam would be fun.


Or we could do the music video theme with a list of songs to pick from and then have categories for traditional animation, 3D and stop motion and then declare a King of Mediums based on the best entries in each.

This sounds like a blast. I'd be in, 100%

Cool way to get some music videos for musicians here who otherwise might not have the means.


Edit: put something by @SroSocial in there, I've owed that man a music video for ages.

What's new with mobile browser optimization or a Newgrounds App?

I think Newgrounds will come up a bit more too, the closer the deadline for Flash support comes. I think a lot of people still see Newgrounds as just a flash site, despite how much support you and your team have added for other submissions as well. The word needs to spread that Newgrounds hosts more than just Flash now!


I would love to see more people come here too, Newgrounds has always been a bit of fun for me, and I am trying to get that passion back that I once had, but I think I found a new calling here, posting crap all over the BBS! I am also glad that you guys are working on Flash emulation, that'll be really good, because there are a lot of classics on Newgrounds which would be hard to lose access to.


Long live Newgrounds!

Are you most upset about your scores in general or some particular reviews?


I follow you and listen to your music / watch your videos - I think your work is likely an acquired taste for people; you've got a unique thing going on that might be too out there for a lot of people but I warmed up to your work a while back and always enjoy checking it out. I'll bet a number of others have as well.


Also sorry we don't have bulk delete features for individual content categories, although I don't think you should rush to delete all your stuff.

Your work is not for everyone. But deleting it off of Newgrounds would be pointless. It got more attention here than it ever got on YouTube. Please calm down and rethink this. Maybe you need to find a way to advertise it somewhere?

I think people would really enjoy your (@Scuinox) videos in a back-to-back autoplay playlist format, so I'm bummed we don't have that as a viewing option yet but I think when we do there will be new people who just sit back and absorb all your work in one shot, too.

It's not available for art yet, supporters only see it on their own games / animation / audio at the moment.
