The following post is a bit stream-of-conscious and in no way an exhaustive recap of this month. I felt like pointing out a few cool things from recent weeks, without going overboard. Maybe you’ll start following someone new as a result!
Colton Crux, an upcoming occult noir graphic novelby nashotobi
An exorcism in progressby nashotobi

If you enjoy the cosmic horror vibes, don’t miss this one by @Shamfoo:
This sea creature by @nathanandersonart is also sufficiently creepy:
@Moonshen has been sharing jaw dropping pixel art, such as these works centered around Castlevania and Earthbound:
@moertel also popped in this month to share a cool new pixel piece:

@CaptionPanic meanwhile has been making all sorts of charming stuff:
@DavidBurt joined NG this month and shared some cool art, along with great short animations! Studio World is the only one that was front paged so far but they’re all worthy:

And a new movie from @JoelG, with a real experimental vibe:
In the game space, have you played Dark Soil by @OVERBOY?
OVERBOY is previously known for games like Prince Charmless and OVERGAME. I commissioned a Prince Charmless piece by @Cubesona that should be dropping soon and you can check out the Overgame piece I recently commissioned from @Shenaniganza:
Update: Prince Charmless has arrived!
Another commissioned piece you can expect soon is from @Sony-Shock, inspired by Volty’s Quest, which recently added ten more levels!
Update: Volty's Quest piece by Sony-Shock is a go!
RPG fans will want to check out Untamia’s Fantasy by @LeviRamirez:
While RTS fans should take a look at Winter Falling by @Rarykos:
Music-wise, I’ve been maintaining a May playlist Part 1 and Part 2. We’ve been talking a lot about expansions and improvements to the playlist system, hoping there will be more on that in the months ahead.
I’ll give a final shout-out to @AntonM, who I’ve been enjoying in three different portals.
What have been some of your favorite things so far this month?
