We received hundreds of submissions for our Halloween contest, many of which you can see on our Halloween 2006 page. The winners closely reflect audience voting, but not exactly:

1. Portal of the Damned - $1,000
2. Retarded Animal Babies 17 - $1,000
3. -LSD- - $1,000
4. Blockhead: Episode 8 - $500
5. More Like Blue: Halloween - $500
6. Night Trap - $250
7. College University Halloween Special - $250

Adam Phillips deserves recognition for 3:33am, which faired very well with fans and is still a must-see. Egoraptor also deserves a nod for his excellent Awesome Halloween movie. We received tons of other great submissions and I'm sorry I don't have room to acknowledge them all here. :)

Our next big contest is for movies with a holiday theme such as Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa! We are giving out over $6,500 in cash prizes to the best movie submissions this season. Armor Games has a similar contest for games, which will also be featured in our Christmas 2006 collection, with winners determined by NG voters! Please see our Christmas 2006 page for more information concerning the contest.

We are also proud to announce that Newgrounds is a platinum sponsor for Penny Arcade's Child's Play charity. Child's Play provides toys and games for sick kids in Children's Hospitals around the nation!

Flash artists aren't the only ones winning prizes! We recently had a treasure hunt, where users were asked to point out funny movies on Newgrounds that never got the recognition they deserved. We've compiled a list of twenty of our favorites, which I'll be putting on the front page right after posting this news. The three rows on the bottom are the least safe for work but also some of the silliest. Our favorite submission was Break'n Into Your House, which gets props for making us laugh while being appropriate for all audiences. This submission was brought to our attention by Blaze, who will now receive $200 and a t-shirt for his discovery!

Finally, since I will be replacing all the current front page features, I want to bring attention to two recent games that truly raise the bar. Red Baron was created by MindChamber and FrostedMuffins, featuring enemy art by a large variety of artists who took part in MC's contest a few months ago. We'll be announcing another similar contest soon in the art forum!

Tri-Achnid is the latest offering from Edmund McMillen, of Gish fame. The programming is by Komix, who will now be recognized as one of the greatest Flash programmers on the planet. Tri-Achnid introduces some new concepts, so please give it a chance and learn the mechanics. Read the instructions. This game will totally amaze you the more you play it.

Also, I get mentioned in this fun article.

4. Blockhead: Episode 8 - $500

I think blockhead deserved more money.

Cool, can't wait to see the winners.

Response to Halloween, Christmas, Treasure Hunt 2006-11-03 20:54:12


Redesign updates! We need those!

Do you have a new deadline, Tom? We NG fans need a new date to mark on our calendar. I'm sure many users had to scribble off their November 15th mark ;)

Don't forget to post some new screen shots and teasers.

Congrats to the winners. Some great submissions this month!

Aw well, I tried.

Time to start the Christmas flash.

Response to Halloween, Christmas, Treasure Hunt 2006-11-03 21:03:28


On that note, Tom, I'm not sure if it is an accident, but the Christmas page doesn't list the prizes. They're lisetd as 00, 0, and 0.

Response to Halloween, Christmas, Treasure Hunt 2006-11-03 21:04:34


I'll note that I decided to stick closely what the users voted as the best, since it closely reflected by own feelings. The top three all get the same prize, so I didn't stress too much over which was best of the three. My one early regret is that I really did like the Blockhead Halloween special and wonder if I should have bumped it into the top three.
