Flash Forward 2022 Winners

Winners of our second annual Flash Forward Jam have been decided!


The goal of this jam was to make new games with Flash, using AS2 so they run in-browser with Ruffle. Ruffle is what we use to preserve Flash content on NG; it currently supports most AS2 content and is working towards AS3. We’ll continue hosting this jam every year to both celebrate Flash and showcase Ruffle progress!


Thank you @PsychoGoldfish, @BrandyBuizel and @Mike for judging assistance. Here are the winners:


Games Category


🏆1st - $1000



Tower Defense was a huge staple of classic Flash gaming. @BoMToons and @Luis have now made one of our favorites, with this TD take on Portal Defenders.


🏆 2nd - $750



Clever puzzles, novel mechanics and silly dialog make Bird on Bird our second favorite entry for 2022. @Starblinky and @TheGarbager619 brought great ideas, tech and art to this game!


🏆 3rd - $550



@FuturecopLGF took us on an adventure against a rogue computer virus that makes you feel like you’re hacking the mainframe in some movie out of the 90s. Multiple phases, nail-biting tension and quirky tunes by @pedro-g-f make this game a must-play experience!


🏆 4th - $450



Nostalgia buffs will appreciate the charm of @TeamTamago's 16-bit adventure, with Genesis-styled music and PC98-styled visuals.


🏆 5th - $250



Last year’s victor @MidNightMaren returned with a cyberpunk adventure set to a pulse-pounding @NandinAnubis soundtrack. This game is a vibe!


🏆 6th - $200



@clarkiagames’ entry would have been right at home in our Egg Jam last year. Tossing an egg onto a pillar seems simple enough but the game adds depth with the redemption arc that's revealed when you when you miss.


🏆 7th - $100



@Foumart created Gridlock as a take on classic car shuffling puzzles. Tons of puzzles and fun transitions between levels will keep you entertained for the long haul!


Interactive Movies Category


🏆 1st - $210



From the start you’ll think @GGMagenta has created a game but it’s actually a well-crafted prank built to subvert expectations, earning it the top spot in our interactive movie category. Loads of great personality!


🏆 2nd - $122



@Edeshye made a classic Dress Up with a good bit of depth; you’ll enjoy trying to piece together various outfits.


🏆 3rd - $100



@NoCaps crafted an interactive story with choices, in the tradition of Henry Stickmin.


Honorable Mention - Best Collab



@Mabelma partnered with a ton of artists to create a vending machine filled with collectable treats!


Honorable Mention - Oldschool Award



@Little-Rena returns to NG’s roots, tasking the player to dispense of a persona-non-grata in a variety of comical ways.


Honorable Mention - Best Game by NG Staff



@PsychoGoldfish really brought it this year, with a full on point and click adventure! A great game for the ages and another brilliant showcase of Ruffle in action.


Thank you everyone who made something for the jam! You can see all the entries in our Flash Forward 2022 collection. If you missed out on participating, there’s always next year!

Thanks a lot for the award, i'm really happy with this! I wanted to make flash games since i was 14, and i started learning flash, but my life went on a different direction. Coming back with Edeshye in 2020, it felt too late for that (the rabbit and the turtle anyone?), but well, i did it anyway. And winning an award for it? damn! It's really fulfilling! So thanks a lot everyone! I hope you had fun playing it! Also, congratulations to all winners!

Crap, I'm a Flash Forward 2022 Loser.

Congratulations to everyone who made all of these Flash Games. Can't wait to see what's coming next year.

:O

2nd place!! Thank you so much!

I really struggled with the game at times and staying motivated so it just feels good to be done, and to win 2nd place absolutely exceeded my expectations.


Also I gotta thank Tom for extending the deadline, that was a life saver.


And couldn’t have made the game look so good without @TheGarbager619 and @Charkked, and @EspiDev for his crazy music! Go follow these people if you haven’t already!!

GO PLAY BIRD ON BIRD!!

Woo, Third Place! I'm honored to have placed so highly, especially considering the super Flash veterans we've got here and the hardcore difficulty of my game: I was pretty sure that was gonna cost me a lot, but I guess a lot of people still enjoyed it in spite of that, so thanks everyone! Makes me wish I was able to implement medals in time, woulda been great to see how many people made it through it all (stupid me not realizing I didn't flip debug mode off)!


Special thanks to Tom for extending the deadline very generously, maybe too generously, haha. But without it, I wouldn't have been able to cram in my usual reckless overambition and deal with a pretty crippling arm problem that took me outta action for quite awhile! Game jams are rough!


And of course, congratulations are in order to all the other winners and entrants as well: I'm still making my way through playing them all but I'm having a blast (and will have my usual feedback video up soon enough)!
