Where are these Voice Acting slots? Perhaps it's just me but the front page looks the same as usual.


Edit: also, the tankman icon encouraging you to sign up should probably be capped at a minimum of the equivalent of 2/5 stars. It probably sends the wrong message when you're clicking on the "More" button at the bottom of the viewport and you get greeted with this:

There was also the 0.5/5 icon that triggered in one case but I couldn't replicate it on my screen. Perhaps someone with a larger monitor could.

Thank you very much to those who enjoyed playing Bunbun's adventure!

Response to Best of January 2022 2022-02-07 15:16:56



Wow, what a month! Congrats to all the winners: this month was an absolute flood of both quantity and quality: I'd be intimidated and green with envy at the absolute power of these game devs...if I wasn't too busy having fun playing their games!


Thanks to Pixel Day, both in the sheer amount of games created for it and their quality which made me get addicted and constantly go over my 10 minute limit, this is one of my longest videos yet, practically 10 hours! I'm going to end up destroying YouTube's servers at this rate! Hope they'll be able to survive the upcoming games from the Flash Forward Jam (which I might be making an appearance in after getting inspired by the NG Podcast about it, and after all, I gotta make a game once in awhile so I can feel the pain of being in the hot seat of the reviewee, haha)

Waow thank you for playing Elizabeth SLAY!! like that!! Gosh, I was all hyping up the whole NPC talking thing on my socials, like, how you can take it slow and just sit around look at all the fellas, you thought it's all about combat and shooting... I see the issue fully now!! You're a beast for doing this every month!!!!

Ah, thanks! That was buried further down the page for me which was probably why I didn't see it earlier.

That was actually the intent of this when it was added but that didn't quite go as planned, need to revisit that.

Perhaps it could be activated only when hovering over that div?
