I just wanted to say thanks for just over a week on the front page. I appreciate it Tom. We even got the big featured item slot for a day or two! So that was really wicked :D
As of today we also hit 100k views which is awesome! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to watch. It was a blast to make, and I appreciate the support. Look out for a volume 3 somewhere down the line!

Sorry for some of the initial bugs with the menu, but I got everything ironed out. The About section now works, the sounds contributed are corrected, and a few other minor adjustments are ready to go!!


"Did You Hear That?" is a collaboration of sound and animation from 10 talented artists here on Newgrounds.

All participants in this collab were hand selected by me, Goat-Man. All activities in this collab were conducted through privatemessages. Meaning members had no interaction with each other, and never knew who they were working with.

Each member was told to hand in one random sound effect.The sound was allowed to be anything that they wanted. I took all handed in sound effects, and organized them into a random order. Each member was given this compiled sound file, and weren't allowed to change it in any way.

Since there were no interactions between members, each animation came out 100% different because they were unable to take ideas from one another.

The name "Did You Hear That?" came from the idea that each sound effect was interpreted differently. So each member heard and invisioned a different scene than the others.

This is actually the first time that members in the collab will be able to see everyone that they worked with throughout the project. But, that was really just me being a tease more than anything :P

Thank you so much to the members for your hard work and efforts.
This was a blast to work on, and I loved organizing it!
I hope you all love how it turned out as much as I do.

Special thanks to LazyMuffin for narrating the menu, and also making a fantastic song! It really helped make it that much more enjoyeable :)
A big thanks to Mr. Fulp for giving us a spot on the front page, as well as the featured movie section! Thanks so much! I love Newgrounds!!


Nice work.

With DTHT1 there were a lot of robots and aliens, so I'm glad we moved away from the this time.

Noodle responds:

Personally in my part, I used a robot and a wizard. I later thought that that wasn't original enough. I just chose a story that involved 2 things capable of making any sound. I tried to have something more original this time around.

dat was shweeeet

jonbro is meh hero. also goatman

Omg is that Blockhead's voice?

this is funny because all of sounds fitted with each scene

Noodle responds:

No sorry, The Swain does blockhead. The voice in this was done by LazyMuffin. He also did a part in the collab, you can check out his stuff and see if you recognize his voice from his other work

Awesome concept

I haven't seen DYHT1, so I will check that out after I finish writing this review, but I wanted to say that I think the entire concept for this collab is pretty effing sweet. I like how none of the artists/authors had any idea who else was working on the project; as you have already said, it makes each author's interpretation of the sounds that much more entertaining to watch. I also think you made the right decision not including anyone from the first collab; even though the sounds were different, it's nice to have new talent in each collab, especially talent that might not be as well-known as others. Collabs are a great way to showcase a new or upcoming artist's skills to a much larger audience than the artist's submission would have garnered by itself.

I would definitely like to see DYHT3 in the future. There were a couple of minor things I liked, too... LazyMuffin's narration was fun, I liked the way he said some of the names. Also, the yellow lines on the menu are guitar strings, and if you mouseover them, you can strum them... not sure what the point it, but it's kind of a fun random addition. The first string (high E, I think) was much too quiet compared to the rest, and the sixth string (low E, or whatever) didn't move when strummed, but it doesn't really matter.

Cheers to all the artists that took part in the collab, and cheers to Goat-Man for having an interesting, unique idea for organizing it.

Exellent animation, but the ten is for those interactive strings in the menu. Brilliant touch.
