Well, it's been 10 years since I signed up.
I remember when I first found Newgrounds. My friend showed me a bunch of stuff when I was over at his house in Middle School. Badger Bager, the Box Transformer, stuff like that.
I originally signed up to review skateboarding games, before I discovered that I could make games and upload them here too. I spent a couple years in high school learining Actionscript 2 so I could post my first game in '09:
A Christmas themed avoider game, ironic considering the fact that I'm Jewish.
I worked my way up, submitting 24 games so far. Eventually Tom invited me to the NG meet up, something I was sad to learn wouldn't be happening this year.
Recently I graduated college with a degree in computer science, something that wouldn't have happened without Newgrounds.
Newgrounds is unlike any other submission-based website I've seen. It's barely changed, with Tom refusing to sell it off or take on outside investors, fearing (probably correctly) it would change outside.
With sites like YouTube cracking down on offensive content, I'm glad there's at least SOME site where you can upload pretty much whatever you want.
You're a great guy, Tom.
Here's to 10 more years.
OK, haven't been here a lot recently.
I've been working on a full, big game with @bill-premo.
IDK what I can say right now, but it's probably going to be good.
I also learned guitar.
That's it, fuck off.
Because of money and transportation and school work.
Though I am hosting a party in my college dorm room.
PM to RSVP.
Starring Tom Fulp as himself, this series finale ties together all the dangling plot threads you were waiting for and many more!
It's all here in April Foolz: Uprising!
I would like to take this time to announce my new, totally hilarious video game themed parody band called:
"The Taco Waffle Video Game Parody Jokesters"
We will be bringing you the freshest video game themed parody songs like:
"Why does Princess Peach always get Kidnapped? Are Her and Bowser having an Affair?"
"Pokemon is like Animal Fighting"
"Mortal Kombat Rap Battle Sub Zero Vs. Mileena"
"Call of Duty Characters get Shot and then Heal Like it's Nothing (Could I Have that Power?)"
AND MANY MORE!
Also featuring guest vocals by Wil Wheaton.
It's a game we made in 48 hours and making it caused me legit physical pain.
I was sleeping 2 hours a night and didn't shower during the entire jam.
My eyes were bloodshot and my hair was greasy, I had ass pimples, and my back still hurts, though it was worth it because I actually liked the game we made.
I want to die.
Also, vote 5.
But our game's gonna be so good that you won't even care.
It's because school and obligations and shit.
It's gonna be our best game yet.
It doesn't even support as2.
