Treasure Hunt 2008 RESULTS 3/4 2008-10-29 09:48:48


On Friday I will be making the Pumpkin Carving contest thread. Winners will receive swag bags from the Tokyo Game Show! If you carve a pumpkin this year, carve it with a Newgrounds theme (any characters from around the site) and take several pictures. Once I make the post on Friday, you'll have the weekend to submit your pictures!

Over the course of the 2008 Treasure Hunt, a lot of submissions came up that were part of larger series. I decided to break them out into their own post about undiscovered series that don't have their own pages. There are currently over 120 series pages in existence. Many of the below submissions don't have a page because there aren't enough episodes yet, while others don't have a page because there are too many to manage. Some, however, may eventually get a page. Try to watch them all and let me know what your favorites are! Also feel free to recommend other overlooked series.

One of the most linked series in the treasure hunt was Tywo At Large:

Another series brought up in the treasure hunt was DevilSlayer by YungJazz. I could have sworn I had front paged episode of DS, but looking back I don't think any of them were, or at least not for more than a day.

I can't believe I missed the Michelle & Feo Pilot by Andrew Kauervane, creator of the My God, Robots! series:

Andrew was a winner in the 2007 Halloween contest and has followed up with a spooky new movie this year. Here are both of them:

Maniacmark has been working on the David's Adventure series for three years now without any formal recognition. He even has contests to get fans involved!

Oxmar the Elephant has only been around for two episodes, but it's a recent series so hopefully there's more to come!

The JojoVill series by Thornberry has been brought up in previous years during the Treasure Hunt. The J-Pop intro is misleading, there's actually stories and dialogue beyond it.

The Rich Young Doctor series only existed for two episodes but has also come up two years in a row:

Alex Whitington and Alex Scobell have a few well-received episodes of Accidental Emperor.

The asi-Dream Fairy series has won a lot of awards and is due for a series page:

Purgatory Pizza comes to us from the creators of Olympus Burger.

Olympus Burger is a series they are pitching to networks:

The first episode of Waffle X was a front page hit, but the second episode went under the radar:

The Infractus Fatality and Colosseum Tournament series has some epic battles and stuff.

The sherry enema series has enjoyed some front page success but they are all worth checking out:

Kirbopher's TTA series has 73 episodes, so I'll just link to one:

On the Bridge is another massive series, with over 45 episodes. Here is just one example:

The Duders series also has a lot of episodes, and I am aware that I overlook it a lot and that does make me feel guilty.

And go watch Fitch and Jove while you're at it, they have like seven episodes:

The Twin Trash series by the Vad Flaaten brothers is also worth a looksee!

The Neenja series has been front paged a lot, but never quite reached a series page. The animation is amazing, though; check it out!

GunChest is an up-and-comer that will likely get a series page in the near future:

The DOMOFlashVideos series is also a candidate for a series page, although the entire account is dedicated to the series, which makes me feel like this page is good enough. It's still nice to be officially acknowledged, though.

That's all I've gathered this time around! My final Treasure Hunt 2008 post will revolve around recognized artists with overlooked submissions. It won't be nearly as thorough as it should be, but I'll see what I can put together. I'll be making that post next week, after the pumpkin carving contest. Moving forward, I am planning to make the Treasure Hunt a QUARTERLY event, focusing only on submissions from each three month period. Over the next three months, try to find as many obscure games and movies as possible and add them to your favorites.

The front page alone isn't enough space to highlight every great submission that passes through the site. Expanding the front page showcase box doesn't help things, because visitors reach a point where their eyes glaze over. The entire community needs to make a larger effort to discover and share gems on a regular basis. I am personally attempting to include one gem in every post I make, check out some of my recent forum posts for examples. I would love to see more users do this sort of thing, simply paste the submission URL by itself on a line at the end of your post. The same way people define themselves by what music and movies they like, you can define yourself by what little gems you uncover.

Also, GO PHILLIES! I don't like baseball but I'm still excited.

Yeah, these were the three that I linked to you that I thought deserved a series after he gets enough episodes in. I actually talked to the creator of these and found out that I know who he is and that I have meet him before. He lives like a half hour away from me. It's a small world after all I guess.

That actually got front page in March, 2008, but it didn't get the attention it deserved. :)

Yeah, Phillies are definitely going to win the series! Hopefully they will win tonight. Only three and a half innings till victory!

Oh, and VVithereD is another underrated animator who deserves a whole lot more! His style of animation is hilarious; he wasn't front paged enough.

Response to Treasure Hunt 2008 RESULTS 3/4 2008-10-29 11:51:27


Hmm, I wonder if anybody else has opted for Oxmar the elephant.
I know I was one.
at least.
I'm just...timid about looking through to see if anybody else suggested it, mainly because of the buzillions of entries.
I didn't envy you, Tom, but you've done a good job at hacking through most of that.
and there was a lot.
Congrats.

Personally, I really like Space Jerks. it's a funny, pretty well animated series, deserving of a series page. The only problem is that the last episode was released last year, so there probably won't be any more episodes. I still think it deserves a little more recognition.

I think "Yale" was the first to link to Oxmar, he did so on page 16 of the thread. That was the what I made note of, anyway.

Lazyfeet posted Michelle & Feo on page 7, I had made note of that being the first instance of it. I don't think I'll be doing prizes for series, though...

hey tom! this post is directed towards you, you can read it if you want, and anyone else who feels like listening to me whine.

i had lots of good undiscovered flashes in my favorites, which i would have been totally willing to post in these threads had my account not been stolen briefly, and half my flashes, most of my audio, and all my favorites been deleted. i could have also recommended you some of my flash movies which although don't really appeal in a mainstream style, are funny in their own quirky sort of way. unfortunately half of them got deleted, with apparently no way to restore them. i dont have some of the swfs and flas, and i really don't want to be bothered to resubmit everything.

my point is (other than i'd really like for my account to be restored even though i know its pretty much impossible), after being hacked twice, and my movies being ignored for the most part (even when they were on frontpage (although i can see why)), and my audio being ignored as well (which i also understand because of the dumb way the audio portal works), i think i should be recognized as the contributing member to newgrounds that i am!
