Real talk, I'm predicting the next big generation to be the COVID-Boomers. Born between late 2020 and early 2021. There will be a lot or them. Mark my words.

Why did you look at the balls, Tom?

You never EVER look at a gypsy's balls.

Holy crap, Tom! You freaking scared me for a second! Congrats on your new virtual baby.

My character got married to Alex, on the 23rd of Spring (2nd Year.) Now I’m just building up the funds for the 3rd house expansion.

Didn't the requirement to gain XP used to be lower, like five entries? Or am I mistaken?


XP is granted instantly now, so you can vote on one thing per day and get 2XP. Normally it maxes out at 10XP per day but during Double XP you can log up to 20XP.

Hope everyone else is doing ok out there; thank you again to those of you keeping healthcare, food, deliveries and essential services going. For everyone else, we’re trying to give you plenty of reasons to stay indoors, with fun opportunities to create and learn on NG!

Shelter in Place Art Jam

Today is the deadline for our Shelter in Place art jam. The theme has been to illustrate yourself sheltered in place, doing whatever you do to pass the time. We’ve seen lots of phenomenal entries so far and you have until midnight PST to share your own!

HaxeFlixel Game Jam

Last week we launched a HaxeFlixel Game Jam with the theme “Alone, Together.” A growing number of devs from the HaxeFlixel community have stepped up to contribute prize money, bringing the total prize pool to $1,300 as of last night! 

The HaxeFlixel tutorial was also updated over the weekend to cover Visual Studio Code and the Ogmo 3 tile editor (used for Celeste). The deadline is April 27th and this jam is a great opportunity to learn a variety of new things! The HaxeFlixel Discord is full of helpful people who can answer questions along the way.

The Tire Pressure Project

A new Re-Animate collab is happening and @IvanAlmighty has already jumped aboard: The Tire Pressure Project. Follow that account and watch the video for more details.

Art Inspired Music Contest

The Art Inspired Music Contest runs from Friday, April 17 until Monday, June 22. The theme of this contest is to make a song inspired by a piece of art here on Newgrounds.

Animated Student and Festival Films

I want to put this out there as a reminder: We love ALL ANIMATION on Newgrounds! Please don’t hesitate to share your project here, even if you’re nervous it’s not the right fit. We want to be swimming in original animation around here and your involvement really helps drive the site forward. You might even help class up the joint!

Similarly if you have friends who are animators and they aren’t posting their work on Newgrounds, please encourage them to do so.

Art Commissions

I commissioned @zattdott to make a piece based on @Nutcasenightmare’s Adventures with Anxiety!

//www.newgrounds.com/art/view/zattdott/adventures-with-anxiety-fan-art

More game-themed art commissions are on the way, along with a new site skin by @Sabtastic!

Side note, art and animation based on obscure games is always appreciated around here. I loved seeing these two pieces this morning and these games aren’t even super obscure, they just don’t get a lot of fan art here:

//www.newgrounds.com/art/view/captionpanic/bonk-s-adventure
//www.newgrounds.com/art/view/animatedaf/detana-twinbee

TurboGrafx-16, Neo Geo, weird '90s arcade brawlers; we'd love all of it around these parts!

Double XP Extended

Because the shutdown is officially going until at least April 30th, we’ve extended our Double XP event to run from now until the end of April! That means every day you can log 20 XP by voting on at least ten entries. Your votes help to surface the best content on the site!

Congratulations with this positive and great thing in this crisis Tom!

Glad you liked my Twinbee piece! I love drawing fan art for obscure games and Twinbee was long overdue.


Here's the sketch of it!

I was going to say "Wouldn't that be a bit painful giving birth through your dick, Tom?", but I supose this is less painful.

I'm really, really glad that you're so open to all animation. I'm what you call a 'Crying But Trying' animator, because my animation still isn't that good and I'm still working on my skills. But this post really inspires me to keep trying. (I actually have a new and better Undertale animation meme on the way, if you want to know :'>)

Congratulations, Tom! I hope it all goes well for you!


Other than that, all I have to say is that I've decided to sit out AIM in favor of volunteering to be a judge for the contest.

I'm new to Newgrounds but I know your guy's art well enough that when you said this my heart lept out of my chest.... then you I saw the Stardew Valley and I had no idea to feel relieved or disappointed. Still can't decide

I want unlimited XP per day just for me, pretty please with sugar on top?

Lol, wish I was clickbaited by this sooner! I assumed the deadline was 9pst and midnight Philly time. All good tho since I turned something in! Thought I could rest after finishing the piece but now I'm incredibly curious to what Tire Pressure is


I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
