Newgrounds: Zero Hour, the game that launched Pixel Day that I started on 5 years ago, is now back in development!

I need artists who can make as little or as many assets as they want! I want this to be a mural of pixel artists for the community, and to celebrate Newgrounds.


With that said, this is a project for fun, and no hurry on it. We'll be taking our time, but staying motivated. The demo did really well and helped promote Pixel Day, bringing more pixel artists to Newgrounds! It's a fictional, non-canon sequel to Pico's School, but expanding to the NG universe with many past popular characters. It's also focused on challenging platforming and boss fights.


A good example is the Stage 2 walkthrough video (don't mind the glitch of the fireballs being way too big and reversed, plus this is old): https://youtu.be/OO7HkSgScW8


Also here's the announcement trailer highlighting Stage 1: https://youtu.be/OO7HkSgScW8


We already have a decent amount of artists, but we can have as many as we want! I want your style to shine on this project, but I do look for quality. It would be cool to release another demo on Pico Day. Send me your work, and we'll talk! Thanks! :)

Right up at the top here.

The plan is for this to be small, and free. So only take it on if you want something fun to mess around with, and aren't in it to get paid, or earn much more than a little ad rev


Back in 2008 (it's been a minute...) I did some planning and animating for a Newgrounds themed snowboarding game.

I had a selection of characters from around the site (for each, I had received permission to use in the game).

I even drew up sprites for about 7 of them!

Each one has a basic animation for lean right, lean left. As well as a tail grab, nose grab, and one move that's unique to that character! I had more ambitious things in mind at the time. But now it's just a matter of wanting to put something simple together to share. Maybe slap some ads in it, release it for free, and keep it as a small, for-fun, fan project.


We could do it as an endless runner of sorts. Maybe with physics somewhat similar to Downhill Snowboard?

Do flips. Tricks. Collect... something. Unlock boards, and characters. Add some achievements and a highscore board. Maybe there are a few different themed hills to go down with slight re-skins?


Probably not much more than that needed.

We'll keep it small, simple, and I can send some of the assets over to work with asap!

I hope that's strikes someone's interest. Cheers!
