I recommend taking some time to check out as many winners and runner-ups as possible. There were lots of great movies and games last month.


The voter of the month and winner of honorary Supporter status is @Psyco86!


Be sure to check out the Top Featured Art and Top Featured Audio of February, as well.


Thank you everyone who participated in February! This is shaping up to be a big year for NG.


I’d also like to take a moment to thank everyone who continues to Support Newgrounds. When there is so much cool stuff happening here month after month, it can be easy to assume everything is covered on the back-end. Our revenue doesn’t directly correlate with traffic, however, since the majority of the site runs without ads. Your support allows NG to survive and grow while also evolving away from the ad-supported model, which no longer works for us in the age of hyper-tracking and personalized ads. If you’re ever wondering if NG needs more paying supporters, the answer is: always!


Thanks for reading! Next up will likely be the Flash Forward Jam winners.

Let Her Know (Or Something) was phenomenal.


Congrats to Joel for pumping out a 16 minute animation with the charm of an old school RPG acid trip, too.

Another month, another lovely lineup of games! Crazy to see and play so many flash games in this day and age, all courtesy of the Flash Forward Jam and emulation like Ruffle! Really brought a tear to my old eye, and so many of the entries weren't just nostalgia grabs: they were legit good new creations!

Congrats to the winners!


Arcane Maiden gives the vibe of a lost treasure from the Flash days. A game like that back in the day would easily be a several million view behemoth. I hope there's a day when things like that could happen again for free web games.


It's literally always a pleasure to see @KimiOmega put out a new Kirby Guardians anim. His talent for animation is so incredibly stylish, not many animators are confident enough to throw out the sort of editing effects he does with the multiple cameras-on-screen shots that give his works so much style :0 I hope his work inspires people to try some weird shit with their animation cinematography, I'm seeing more and more of it and I know it's not, like, entirely a new concept, but seeing solo animators just go for it and with that sort of style and polish is inspiring af


Super Raft Boat is an incredible game by a friend of mine from the Boston scene. I've seen @JasoonMargoon keep chugging with better and better games each time he posts. It's really great to see Super Raft Boat get the sorta love it deserves now!

Congratulations to the winners!


I voted much more games this month as the outcome of the Flash Forward Jam has been a joy! I know, it is still a long way to go, but I am totally looking forward to another series of Flash games, when AS 3 is supported!


But the word has been spread. Gaming with Flash AS2 is possible and it is great what one can do is so little time! Kudos to all!

This hits right there in the feelz. Wish I had this (mediocre) skills back in the day.


Never would have thought Arcane Maiden would reach top 5, but here we are. Major shootout to @Hyenaedon (and crew) for the awesome soundtracks! Thanks to everyone who voted for it, and congrats to everyone else!


Flash Forward Jam was a big opportunity to share this project, I'm glad it was so well received! I can't remember the last time I tweened animation on Flash. This sure lit some almost lost passion for this kind of thing.


Thank you Newgrounds and the Team behind Ruffle.rs. Hope we can repeat next year.

How exactly does judging work? Is it based off the vote score?

It's deliberated internally, although audience feedback can help in the process.

Oh I would love this for News Posts! Would make a lot of stuff easier on my end. This is awesome though in case someone is finishing their piece and want it posted while they're away on vacation or something.
