Game Devs: Our API now supports Cloud Saves! This allows players to save their game data to their NG account, so they can switch between devices without losing their progress.


@PsychoGoldfish has also created a new Unity implementation of our API, fully documented with code examples and a demo you can steal from!


If you add cloud saves to your game, let me know because we’ll want to feature some examples!

And Happy Birthday to Alien Hominid! Can't believe it has already been 20 years, as I remember playing it for the first time when I was just a little kid :O!

Response to Best of July 2022 2022-08-07 12:13:52



Another great month of games: congratulations to all of the game developers for making all these wonderful games for me to play as usual!


We certainly saw a great crop of dice-based games come in this month from the GMTK Jam: in fact, my personal top 4 was stuffed with just entries from that, like Dice Catcher! Really fascinating to see what great games can be created in such a short time: I guess pressure makes diamonds after all (though lord knows I can't deal with that kind of time pressure!) Speaking of jams, looking forward to seeing what comes from @Stepford 's Mobile Game Jam!


If people have time, they should definitely check out the Toodee and Topdee Demo here:



The full game is currently on sale on Steam for just $8, so play the demo and see if it catches your fancy!


And speaking of demos, if you're a beat-em-up fan like me, you should definitely check out the Maiden Cops demo! I feel like it's still a work in progress, which makes it all the more important we give it a lot of feedback so it can become great!

Also super happy to see the cloud saves in the API! @PsychoGoldfish , is this a precursor to getting the level sharing API back in business?

Other News

Stepford’s Mobile Game Jam is currently in progress! The theme is “Lots of Them” and participating games must be playable on mobile, via the browser (and on Newgrounds).

The Ugasi Show is celebrating their one year anniversary with an art contest! The deadline is August 24th and there are cash prizes. We’re fundraising to increase the prize pool! If you’d like to support the Ugasi anniversary celebration, use the donation option on the Supporter page and PM me a heads up that you donated towards the Ugasi Art Contest.

Today is the last day to submit something for the Summer Lovin’ Jam!

Thank you everyone who helped make July another magical month on Newgrounds!

Also thank you everyone who came out to the Smiling Friends panel at the Adult Swim Block Party in Philly yesterday! I had the honor of being the panel moderator, where I grilled @psychicpebbles and @MichaelCusack with questions before they premiered the Brazil episode for the first time. I also got to meet up with people like @Potatoman, @BuhlBoy, @NickSenny and @SirLenward irl!

Oh and Alien Hominid turned 20 years old today!

Need more NG news? Read the latest edition of The Tank Tribune! It covers the NYC Meetup and has a sneak preview of @Prox276's hot upcoming game, Dynacore.

It's always great when one of your top picks is able to pull off a win.

@PsychoGoldfish has also created a new Unity implementation of our API, fully documented with code examples and a demo you can steal from!

If you add cloud saves to your game, let me know because we’ll want to feature some examples!


Goldie Kicked ass with that,

Here's an update to my Godot implementation for the NewGrounds API to streamline cloud saving -- if any of you Godot devs are making a game for the Mobile Jam and want players to be able to play from either phone or computer and save progress between them then there's still time to add it.


I also went back and added cloudsaves to Quad -- you can test it out by playing through a couple of levels on one computer and then going to another computer or a different browser on the same computer; the Continue button on the main menu should start off gray and then light up after a few seconds when the cloud data is loaded. It could show off both the NG API CloudSave feature and the Gamepad Mapper I wrote and made source code available so devs can have better online support for Gamepads (everything except the D-pad).
