We’re hosting a Halloween Spooktacular this month, with over $1,500 in prizes for the best Animation, Games, Art, Music, Writing and Voice Acting


We’d love to increase the prizes. If you have the means and love Halloween, donate on our Supporter page and PM me a heads up you donated towards the Spooktacular. You’ll get listed as an event sponsor and will receive an event sponsor badge when the badge system is complete.


Site Updates


If you noticed missing icons next to external links on user pages, it was because we were using a Google service to retrieve favicons and the service was rate-limiting requests. We are now storing our own copies of favicons so this won’t be a problem. We’re also pleased that if Google was using that service to harvest data, they can no longer do that.


We also fixed something in tag search related to tag aliases. We use tag aliases to group items under different names; for example “AmongUs” and “Among-Us” should both return the same results. There was a quirk where entries tagged with multiple aliases got a relevancy boost in tag search - this has been resolved.


Today is the deadline for our Among Us Jam! You will be seeing a lot of Among Us movies on the front page.


The SNES Music Contest deadline is October 9th.


Best of September


Your votes are in and the Best of September have been determined!


Top Five Movies



The top ranked animation based on original material and winner of $250 is ENA- Extinction Party. Congrats, @JoelG!


Top Five Games



@MKMaffo, @gamemakertim and @Franuka will each receive $100 for the top three games!


The three best games for October will also receive $100 each. If you would like to contribute to our prize fund, use the donation option on the Supporter page and PM me a heads up you donated towards game prizes.


Thank you to our game prize sponsors!

Man, it sounds like Google is a constantly causing trouble for you. I remember reading about how they wouldn't let you run ads with their service or something.

Congrats to the winners! September was oozing with cool nutrients!

Some great animated stuff but I also sat down to play more Ng games, a few of my highlights:


Erebos, a pretty cool claustrophobic byte sized suspense/horror game

Monster Manor had an awesome aesthetic

Tom Fulp Dress up was a super timely throwback to the oldschool dress-up games

And Renata the Frog is a super friendly arcade frog jumping game.


Here's my attempt at Tom:

Heeey! Thanks so much to those who voted and played my game :)

I didn't really expect much, so it makes me happy to know you enjoyed it.

Congratulations to all the other entries, there's so much good stuff here.


I'll be starting work on my next release (a bigger game based on Elementalist: 0) soon.

Cheers!

Oooh Event Sponsor Badges... curious how that'll work. Is it a one-time thing? Can you earn a new one each time you contribute to a particular event? Will it be like a counter, or more like the yearly supporter badge grid kind of thing with a unique one each time? Also will donation amount be mentioned in any way in conjunction to that badge... (hope not)?


Interesting note on the favicons! Maybe our last lasting traces with the giant have finally been severed...


And finally Congrats to the winners! @MKMaffo and @larrynachos especially! :D So cool to see the greatest picks starting to get all NG themed here.

You'll get a single badge for each event, so for example there will be people with a Pet Jam Sponsor badge, a Musk Jam Sponsor badge, Neo Geo Jam Sponsor badge and an Among US Sponsor badge. The Game Prize Fund will likely be an annual badge, so people this year will get the Game Prize Fund 2020 badge.


The amount won't be shown on the badge but if you click the badge it will likely show a ranked list of who sponsored the event, since we've been showing the sponsor amounts already (to show how the prize total was arrived at).

Can't be too much of a cheapskate then hmm. Seems both good and bad the amounts are all on display though, good to discourage people from just donating a bare minimum to get a badge, but of course it also makes it all the more about the money, so whomever has more to spare instantly gets more recognition and self-worth...


Still not so different from things like the sticker rankings back in the day though. You do earn your spots. Exciting addition this thing...

Madness Redeemer 2: Revenge was the best Madness animation, and i think everyone here agree with me.

And Deimos Is Dead is just the most hilarious shit I've ever seen in my entire fucking life.
