Pico Day, Charity, News, Fun! 2006-02-21 09:44:36


Sorry for the lack of news - I have been prepping the next demo of our new console game so we can show it to some "important people on the west coast" next week! I hate not being able to disclose much, but keep those fingers crossed! We still haven't announced the name or launched an official website for the new game, but you can pick up some sneak peak details from my visit to France this past December. Keep an eye on theBehemoth.com for more details.

BIG EVENT!!! April 30th will mark the first ever PICO DAY! For those of you who aren't down with NG history, Pico was a series I created back in the 90s, with Pico's School being the flagship game that made it a hit. Pico's School was programmed in Flash 3, which didn't support variables - try to figure that one out! I will forever stand by it as being the most technically advanced Flash game of its time. I still get daily emails asking for Pico 2 and I'm sorry everyone has waited so long. Chances are, I'll remake Pico 1 before Pico 2 is ever finished... But it will be a hot remake.

Pico Day is being organized by fans, so you can get involved on this forum thread. The rules are simple: make a game or movie featuring Pico, submit it on April 30th and it will appear in a special collection page commemorating the event. Due to how close Pico is to my heart, and how special I want this day to be, we will have some BIG PRIZES. Winners will be selected by a private panel, to avoid anyone trying any mass-vote monkeybusiness.

1ST PLACE: $2,000
2ND PLACE: $1,000
3RD PLACE: $500
4TH & 5th: $250

The only downside is that you can't have external sponsorships for this contest. Pico is the Newgrounds mascot and we want all the entries to maintain an NG / Pico preloader and logo in the intro. Luis has made a slick Pico loader, which can be found in the thread.

Wacky news: Rog from I-Mockery found a Cadbury mini egg with what looks like a nipple on it. This isn't a hoax, it really came out of the bag like this! He has decided to sell it on eBay:

Cabury Mini Egg w/ Nipple

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude's Hospital for Children. Just to make things exciting, Newgrounds will match the donation up to $1,000!

Place a bid and you could be the proud owner of this perverse candy!

Newgrounds contributors are cleaning up on the competition circuit! Aleksander Wasilewski notified me that Polsupah is a finalist in the The Greatest Story Never Told third annual competition! People's Choice voting ends March 26 at 11:59pm. Other finalists include Objectionable Apparatus, Under the Mistletoe, Cold Tap, The Head - The Leg and more! Heck, I think most of the finalists have previously appeared on NG!

Nuggets are having a contest! To enter, you must create a web comic featuring an original or existing Nuggets character. The winning comics will be displayed on their website, NuggetFuck.com! Also, please check out their website to read the complete rules - they were a bit too lengthy for this post. :)

Is it just $2,000? I thought there would be more.

Ah, nostalgia...

pico day sounds awesome..


Penis. Funny.

Response to Pico Day, Charity, News, Fun! 2006-02-21 09:51:54


Too bad you already used up the "I've gone Prize Crazy" title for a front page news post. :-b

All of that sounds cool. Good luck to all the Pico Day entrants, and may the best man win.

It'd be funny if someone wrote or remade the pico game before you even got a chance to.

Wow, that sounds awsome. Unfortunately, I do not have flash, nor the money to get it, nor the skills to produce an animation.

But I will try make some fan art for the day.

*sigh* I'm not even going to try, unfortunately. I barely know anything of Pico, though I've played the game. I don't have much experience in Flash, so, meh, whatever. I wish good luck to those who wish to produce something for Pico Day!

Response to Pico Day, Charity, News, Fun! 2006-02-21 09:56:25


Lol, that nipple thing cracked me up. Pico is a pretty good game too, for its time. It's no Alien Homonid though. Anyway, heres a photoshop of the cadbury nipple egg:

ROFL the nipple egg is going for $102 right now!

Response to Pico Day, Charity, News, Fun! 2006-02-21 10:31:20


lol that nipple egg is the craziest thing I have ever seen. I hope he gets a good price on it so he can give a good amount to the charity. Even better is that Tom is matching the price.

Which is obvious by the tons of Lawls you've received for that asinine remark.
